Dating. Engaged. Living together. Married. Couples in any place or stage of their relationship, experience a full range of experiences, feelings, expectations, and hopes that may or may not be fulfilled or fulfilling. You may discover that your values are different or that what you thought about your partner is different from what is. Perhaps you love your partner and relationship but find there are certain themes of conflict that arise. You can look at these themes or areas of conflict to become more in-line with each other, even in your differences. Being the same is not what makes for happy relationships. Being ACCEPTING of differences is what does.

Meredith Silversmith, Relationship Coach

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 11530 - Nearby to Plainedge.

I provide relationship coaching to support, empower, and teach couples how to be happy together again. So many couples are simply missing the tools needed to create the healthy relationship they want. Partners need to know the "rules" of healthy communication, fighting constructively, and repairing the breaks that occur between them. When you understand why couples fight and how unresolved conflicts snowball into deep resentment and unhappiness, you're able to help reverse it. I believe teaching the underlying principles allows each partner to trust the process and invest in making changes. Visit my website for more information: www.nassauwellness.com/meredith

Licensed Clinical Social Worker / Psychotherapist

Growing together with our loved ones can be an amazing gift. Somewhere along the line we sometimes struggle with those closest to us. We may bring our old emotional issues into a new relationship or perhaps we find our old ways of communicating with our loved one is no longer working the way it used to. Change is difficult but taking steps to increase communication and sort out our old beliefs that no longer serve us, can bring new light and joy to the relationships we cherish.

Couples Counselor

Rich Heller, MSW, CPC, ACC

Marriage Therapist

In 10803 - Nearby to Plainedge.

What makes working with you as a couple different than you as two individuals is the fact that your relationship has an identity separate from, and dependent on you. In fact, the health of your relationship has a great deal to do with how much you acknowledge the distinction between yourself as an individual and who you are a part of a relationship. In our work together, you and your partner will begin to differentiate yourselves as individuals from who you are in your relationship so that you can begin to nurture both.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 11596 - Nearby to Plainedge.

Working with couples is a true joy for me. Many couples face varying conflicts in their relationship from communication, trust, intimacy to honesty. My approach to couples is unique in that I consider each person in the equation along with how two people in the relationship function as a unit. I teach valuable skills for effective communication, trust-building, problem-solving and developing empathy. There are many components to working with couples that require enhanced listening skills to help them reach their goals for treatment.

Clinical and Board Certified Family Psychologist

In 11030 - Nearby to Plainedge.

Marriage or couple relationships are a tug of war for power and control. When the leverage of the couple becomes one sided: disappointment, fears, worries and anger become predominant emotions. At this point, you may think about leaving because you can't understand your conflicted feelings. Remember, " You can't run away from yourself". It is essential to know your contribution to the dysfunction in the relationship. When you can face your feelings and behaviors patterns and take responsibility for your actions leaving the "blame" behind, the couple begins the repair process enabling respectful listening and communicating leading to healing feelings and setting the stage for intimacy.

Kevin Fleming, Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

In 11550 - Nearby to Plainedge.

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?

Christi Lindsay, PsyD
Couples Counselor

Christi Lindsay, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Available for Online Therapy

Why do we seem to have the same arguments over and over again? How do I know if we are really supposed to be together? Are there things we could be doing to better support each other, to help each other grow and be our best selves? If we really love each other, why do we so often hurt each other? How do I know if this is real love, anyway? Relationships are hard. Even more than desire, they require effort and understanding to make them work. Often, even if two people really love each other, one or both may need help to maintain the right effort or understanding to keep the balance necessary for long-term success. Having outside, objective support can make all the difference.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

In 11577 - Nearby to Plainedge.

Drawing close in intimacy in a couple can be challenging. Being close to another person can result in buttons getting pushed in areas of the self that were never resolved. Despite the challenge, we deeply want to feel intimacy in life. Intimacy in relationship, while often challenging, is one of the greatest opportunities for growth. Caring, compassionate communication between partners opens each person to deeper feeling, connection, and expression. These capacities are crucial for a fulfilled life. I help you learn genuine communication expressing your needs while respecting and caring for your partner. These fulfilling communications lead to a better relationship and a better life.

You know relationships are meant to offer love and care...Yet your connections are rimmed with insecurity, worry, doubt and a feeling of instability.

My goal as couples therapist is to listen to you and give you the tools and techniques to help get your relationship back on track.

In 06830 - Nearby to Plainedge.

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.
