Sometimes couples need to learn how to disagree and still be in love. If there is love still alive in the relationship there is hope for couples struggling to achieve a more loving and meaningful relationship. There is often a third party ,be it another person, an addiction, money or children that gets between a couple and creates a divide. Understanding where the other is coming from with compassion in the presence of a couples counselor can be the beginning of a better and long lasting relationship.

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.

Each couple is unhappy in its own way, but the core of the unhappiness is always miscommunication. Generally each member of a couple brings bad communication habits to the relationship and these habits clash. I use an eclectic approach to couples therapy that combines the latest research, utilizing psychoanalysis, role playing, role reversal, video and practice in constructive communication skills. In time, couples learn to communicate in a way that leads to resolution, not conflict.

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.

All couples endure the pulls of difference of opinion, contradictory goals, feelings, and betrayals, sometimes ever so slight. But when unattended to, when communication has become challenged or when there is an infidelity or other actions that betray trust it is natural to seek assistance. My goal is that both of you feel respected for who you are and what you would like to achieve in your lives. However, the process of discovery can be incredibly challenging, if not painful. Acceptance, forgiveness, change - these can seem impossible to imagine at times, but can be achieved. Some couples desire to improve their relationships, and others to end them with respect and clear communication.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker / Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Plandome

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.

Kenneth Jedding, LCSW, MA

Licensed Psychotherapist

We can say that life is measured in our relationships, and those are an art as much as a science. It's extremely helpful to have a third person in the room, which lets you and your partner understand the world from the other partner's point of view. I've facilitated so many couples to break out of their unproductive, defensive orientations, hear what the other is truly saying, and come up with a mutual language for moving forward. On a personal note, I've been married for over twenty years, so from my both professional orientation as well as my relational experience, I know how important it is for couples to develop creative solutions to move forward in a positive way.

Licensed Psychotherapist

Relationship can bring great joy as well and great challenges. Many problems stem from difficulty communicating with your partner. I can assist you in finding the way to express yourself, as well as the capacity to listen; to find the appropriate boundaries that enable you to feel free while staying connected. Working through conflicts in relationships often not only preserves the relationship, but also empowers each individual to be more confident and open in their own life.

Couples Counselor

Jeff Robinson, MSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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

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

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

Within driving distance of Plandome

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

Michael Picucci, PhD, MAC, SEP

Holistic Psychologist, Author, Focalizer

Within driving distance of Plandome

In working with couples and conflicts, I approach it more as an organic facilitation process rather than traditional therapy. Utilizing new human technologies, we come to understand that there is no right or wrong or good and bad. Yet, there are insidious unconscious dynamics that are powerful and can cause blind spots. Our process together will tease apart these dynamics while working on resolving them, thereby uncovering new fields of possibilities.

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.
