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

Licensed Clinical Social Worker-R

Every couple experiences conflict. A little conflict in relationships is natural and can even be healthy, especially if it leads to compromise. But if you constantly lash out with belittling, contemptuous behavior or have become avoidant or withdrawn, then relationship counseling can help. With over 10 years experience working with couples, I can help you and your partner to identify, explore and address unhealthy thoughts, actions and behaviors that lead to stress and learn how to restore harmony, passion and teamwork to your relationship. With the help of a professional, unbiased, empathic therapist, you and your partner can become friends, lovers and confidants again.

Zalman Nelson, LMSW

Licensed Professional Therapist

Online Therapist / Coach

Marriages and relationships have a core: the connection and bond between the two. When it's weak or untended-to, the strife and arguments begin. Help is needed to get to the core, hit the essential issues and needs, and many of the symptoms fade. For many, each spouse has a past, history, and baggage they carry into the relationship. It's a roadblock between you two, preventing connection and happiness. When removed, the relationship thrives.

Couples Counselor

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

Within driving distance of Oakdale

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

Couples Counselor

Sherry Henig, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Oakdale

Couples, married or not, seek therapy for many reasons; including hoping to resolve differences, hoping to improve communication, and/or hoping to improve their intimate relationship. My work with couples, enhanced by my training in sex therapy, addresses these issues so as to help the individuals within the relationship more effectively express themselves and more effectively understand their partner, and so as to promote the overall strength and joy in the relationship itself.

Couples Counselor

Elissa Grunblatt, LCSW-R

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Oakdale

Couples can be premarital, marital, same sex, transgender, lesbian or gay. Couples can be sexually involved, emotionally involved, or both. I love working with couples of all types! There are many themes that occur with couples that can cause problems, such as money, power, sexuality, children (if there are any), in-laws/family, friends, values, etc. I am experienced in working with couples of all kinds and helping you create better communication and intimacy. When you are in therapy, you will feel heard and respected in a way that you may not be able to feel without a facilitator. I will make sure that each of you have a forum to express yourselves respectfully.

Stacey Chernin, M.A., Psy.D., LMFT, CFT

Licensed Marriage Counselor and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Oakdale

Couples go through rough patches in their relationships. It is my ultimate goal and mission to help them strengthen their relationships. This can be accomplished by demonstrating them better communication techniques, improving trust within the relationship, how to cope with stress together, establishing boundaries, improving intimacy, and teaching them to work as a unit. In addition, I help the couples to work through major issues that can salvage the relationship as well.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Online Therapist / Coach

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.
