Couples Counselor

Marriage and Family Therapist

Our intimate relationships can be the source of our greatest joy and the place we confront our deepest fears and vulnerabilities. Through the use of an emotionally focused approach, I help couples expand and reorganize their inner experience, develop an awareness of destructive patterns, reconnect with one another and heal from emotional pain. Research on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) has demonstrated the effectiveness of this approach: Following EFT, 90% of couples report improvement in their relationship, and indicate that that the changes attained through therapy endure over time. EFT allows couples to have a new experience of one another, and ultimately to create secure connection.

Couples therapy is beneficial in assisting couples gain an understanding of relationship patterns, consequences of words and actions, reasons behind intentions, managing expectations and improving communication just to name a few. Sometimes it is helpful for couples to have a knowledgeable third party to help a couple gain an awareness of some patterns and behaviors they might not realize they are engaging in. Through couples therapy we will aim to help couples change their view of the relationship, modify dysfunctional behavior, decrease emotional avoidance, improve communication and promote the strengths of the relationship.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

Within driving distance of Peekskill

Couples are my passion! When was the last time you had an open conversation with your partner about sex? About emotional intimacy? About communication? We look at the negative cycle that has swallowed you both up, causing stress and disconnection. I am also an affair specialist and have worked with countless couples to sift through the incredible pain to see if there is anything left of the relationship to be salvaged (in many cases, there is). I have met many couples who come in as roommates, where deep wounds are present. Couples feel like my office is a safe place to share, connect, get questions answered and get the professional help that they have needed.

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.

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.

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.

Couples Counselor

Laura OKeefe, LCSW

Psychotherapist / Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Peekskill

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.

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.
