Couples Counselor

Nikki DiFranks, PhD, MA, MS, LCSW-R

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

1841 Broadway, Suite 700, New York City, New York

Although some clinicians may treat unmarried/married couples differently, I do not. This is because I do not take a position, often assumed with pastoral counseling, that a couple ought stay together. My aim is to assess what the couple and family system desires, and where there is disparity, to facilitate a solution that is viable for all. Often, I work to help a confused couple decide whether they wish to stay together, and if they do not, I can help them decide how to separate, as well as help other family members make this transition. Many times, couples/family therapy is about improving the relationships without intentions separation. Assessment of needs is critical to my approach.

Couples Counselor

New York Behavioral Health, Ph.D.

New York Behavioral Health

380 Lexington Avenue, 17th Floor, New York, New York

Couples often go through ups and downs. While this can be normal, many of us have discovered at times that we may not have the emotional, interpersonal, or practical skills to navigate this as well as we would like. There is a great deal of evidence that cognitive behavioral couples therapy is effective for increasing relationship satisfaction. There is even evidence that effective couples therapy can help to reduce depression symptoms. While a romantic relationship may require work, we also want it to be a source of support. Learning skills to effectively communicate, problem solve, and accept the situations a couple faces can significantly improve both partners' satisfaction.

Couples Counselor

H.C. Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

244 5th Ave. Suite 9G, New York, New York

Every couple is unique in the way the partners relate, communicate, and approach conflict---or fail to do so. For that reason I treat every couple according to its own very specific issues. If you feel you’ve been coming up against the same problems with no resolution, or have had a new crisis emerge in your relationship, getting help sooner rather than waiting can often repair and strengthen the relationship. I work short term and am solution-focused.

Couples Counselor

Dr. Chloe or one of her associates will work with you to help you open the channels of communication and learn new ways to listen to each other, bringing your relationship to a new positive level. Allow us to help you find more positive ways of interacting, so that you can both find the satisfaction that you want and deserve in the relationship.

Couples Counselor

Jeff Robinson, MSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

16 East 41st Street, New York, New York

Coming to counseling as a couple is fraught with risk. Will the therapist be fair? Will I be heard? Will I feel a connection with the therapist? What will be involved? Most couples seek therapy well into the conflict--yes, never too late, but more challenging to heal. It is the responsibility of the therapist to hear both stories. Each partner comes with his/her own histories that have become part of the narrative. We need to take a look at this to see how it has impacted the relationship. We need to highlight the need for empathy in our relationships—we may not agree, but can we understand and feel how our partner may be experiencing the matter at hand? Can we have compassion?

Couples Counselor

Rev. Christopher Smith, LCAC, LMHC, LMFT

Helping you find wholeness...

124 East 40th Street, Ste 404, New York, New York

Christopher sees couples (married, re-marriage or otherwise) understanding that close relationships are important in our lives. We are also all human, and at times these relationships do not live up to what we had hoped for. Together, with different techniques and appropriate help, issues can be addressed and the relationship can be continued (or, if desired, terminated) so that everyone has a sense of wholeness and peace within this important dimension of their lives. Christopher will guide your as you explore what is going on and though the journey to wholeness.

Couples Counselor

Maggie Vaughan, LMFT, PhD

Psychotherapist

330 W. 58th St, Suite 203, New York, New York

Dr. Vaughan has been working with couples for over 15 years. Treatment aims to identify unwanted relational patterns and to help couples to work through and prevent such patterns. Partners establish relational tools necessary for clearly conveying needs and desires and for effectively meeting the needs of their significant others. Over the course of treatment, couples feel more trusting, connected, and understood.

Couples Counselor

Ariella Soffer, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical PhD Psychologist

330 west 58th Street, Suite 409, New York, New York

Relationships play a role in almost every aspect of life. If any of the following questions apply to you: Do you want more out of your relationships? Are you experiencing conflict in your intimate relationships? Are you afraid of loosing a relationship? Are you lonely? Are you frustrated by looking for a love relationship? Have you just lost a relationship? I can help individuals look inward and understand more about themselves and what is getting in the way, so that you can take steps forward towards being more fulfilled.

Couples Counselor

Jessica Allen, LCSW, ACT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

125 E 23rd Street, New York, New York

Couples therapy is a means of resolving conflict or communication struggles that couples may not have been able to manage as effectively on their own. This type of treatment involves both partners coming in for treatment and discussing the issues in a way that allows for possible change. The aim is to help couples gain a better understanding of themselves, their partner, and the typical issues that arise to help them make changes that can bring them closer together.

Couples Counselor

Lois Horowitz, Ph.D, LCSW

Psychotherapist

London Terrace Gardens/ Chelsea/ West 23rd Street, New York, New York

Are you and your partner stuck in an unhealthy power struggle? Do you cycle through the same arguments? Do you point the finger of blame rather than take responsibility for the role you play in an unhealthy dynamic? Let’s create a warm and supportive environment to explore the triggers that lead to your dysfunctional attitudes and behaviors. I work with all kinds of couples, married, living together, gay and straight. Please visit my website lhorowitz.com for more information.

Couples Counselor

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

19 West 34th St., Penthouse, New York, New York

I get to know the couples as individuals and as a couple. So, I would start with a joint session with the both of you, and then see you both individually. The reason for that is that people share different information with and without their partner. All information is confidential, and the rule is "No leaking" (that is, not to talk about your individual session, with me, with your partner).

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

New York City, New York

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php
