Couples Counselor

Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

Within driving distance of Peekskill

Couples in trouble are often spouses who are at odds with each other over unrealistic expectations that true love be their salvation. The spouse who is not the answer to personal unhappiness is blamed as the problem. The answer is to create a "we" that meets the mutual needs of the partners, and creates an environment of safety and security to empower each partner to be more accepting and loving of themselves.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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.

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?

Lance Stern, LCSW

Psychotherapist

People can grow apart for many reasons. Sometimes life has become complicated, and you’ve lost sight of each other’s needs. Sometimes there is a breach and a loss of trust and you are not sure how to repair it, or if you even want to. One thing is certain: if two people are willing to work on repairing a marriage that has lost its way, for whatever reason, their relationship already has a foundation to build on. With time and proper counseling, the marriage can often be repaired. I work with committed couples, whether married or not, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, to help both parties clarify what attracted them in the first place, what is not working anymore, and why. Then we work on active listening and clear, simple communication....(view profile to read more)

Licensed Professional Therapist

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

John Gerson, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Peekskill

I am an institute trained couples therapist, and have been practicing couple therapy for 40 years. When the two of you come to see me you will feel a sense of warmth, safety and understanding. You will benefit by the strategies I will suggest during sessions, as well as through homework assignments. It can be a very odd experience to simply talk to your spouse, with no distractions (children, obligations of the day, etc). Not infrequently life is so complex that partners can only talk to each other in a session, behind a closed door, with no expected interruption. You will learn to create and sustain emotional intimacy, and your sexual connection with your partner is bound to improve.

I work with couples to become more conscious and intentional in their interactions. I teach couples specific communication skills to break destructive patterns of relating. I encourage each partner to look and their own behavior and how they may be contributing to the problems. I explore with couples how the problems they are having in their current relationship are related to their experiences in childhood. I work with couples on eliminating reactivity by implementing self-soothing techniques. My goal with couples is to have both partners feel heard and understood by each other.

Some therapists may recommend to a particular couple that the partners engage first in individual therapy, separately, before engaging in couples work. If both partners are not able to maintain a certain level of insight, responsibility, and maturity in their communications, couples work will be ineffective. For relationship counseling to significantly help a relationship, each partner needs to have a commitment to the relationship, or, at least to the couples counseling for the time it continues. Each partner must be generally honest, self-aware, and interested in doing relationship work to have an optimal outcome. Some couples need therapy to help end a relationship in a healthy manner.
