Licensed Psychoanalyst

Sometimes members of a couple get stuck in their old relational patterns, the ways they have always related to others. As years pass by, and romance or sexual experiences diminish or other life events happen, the old patterns become more evident leading to gaps in communication, dissatisfaction, and lack of excitement. As a therapist, I will help you to communicate more effectively with your partner, in ways that acknowledge your personal needs and the needs of the other. I will help you find balance between conflicting needs: the needs of the individual and the needs of a couple. I work with straight couples and GLBT couples.

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.

You will benefit from Couples Counseling with me particularly if you are a parent. Becoming a parent is filled with joy but can have a lot of stressors too, especially for the couple's relationship. There is a whole new constellation in the home with new roles, competition. Sometimes there is a great deal of conflict around child rearing practices. Couples Counseling can facilitate communication between a couple and help ease the journey into parenthood.

Social anxiety is a fear of negative judgment from others and it can lead to reduced levels of intimacy, suppressed emotions, feelings of isolation and loneliness and lack of communication. If one or both of you feels anxious socially, your relationship may be suffering too.

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.

Wendy Eisenberg, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 06850 - Nearby to Sea Cliff.

Working with couples, married or not, is an endeavor that I approach with great care. There seem to be certain themes that arise over and over again, so much so, that these issues demand to be recognized. I am always on the look-out for one partner who feels invisible or taken for granted by the person they have chosen to couple with. Expectations at the beginning of relationships tend to be dazzling and are usually based on hopeful fantasy. What can go wrong is that those expectations turn out to be dashed when two people start to get to know each other in a deeper way. In counseling, I strive to get couples to embrace each other's imperfections and to see each other realistically.

It can be so easy to fall into patterns and, over time, find that you keep having the same issues or arguments within your relationship or marriage. That's where couples counseling can help. Talking out issues and problems in a judgement-free space with a neutral third party invested in your progress and growth can help you and your relationship move forward. 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. When you're ready to stop having the same conversations and to move forward in your relationship or marriage, let's talk.

Many times, it is difficult to find a balance within the marital unit. Often times, each individual is unable to recognize or understand the other, and as such, conflict often occurs.

Emphasis is placed on helping to identify needs and expectations of one another and work toward achieving goals of the individual and the couple in session.

You don’t even know how long it’s been since you and your partner felt connected. Life has gotten so crazy that prioritizing togetherness falls straight to the bottom of your mental to-do list. You know you are ‘all in’. You are fully committed and want this to work. It’s just that, when the same old problems and arguments come up you start to wonder, “Why am I doing this? Is it over?” Maybe there is a crisis, you’ve been unfaithful or you discovered that your partner was, how do you pick up the pieces? How can you possibly move on? I'm here to tell you, its possible to heal. It's possible to have the life you truly want.

It can take us a lifetime to learn to accept the person we have chosen to live with, but it could also take us the same time to try to change that person and not be successful. Couples Therapy can help us understand that even though we all have the potential to change, we cannot change the other. We can learn how to accept the other person, live together or decide not to, and explore what are our own contributions to the dilemmas that we present.

Licensed Psychologist

In 10001 - Nearby to Sea Cliff.

It's important that you know that I don't take sides or engage in blaming either partner. I understand that you are in my office because you want help. I get to know the couple as individuals and as a couple. So in addition to meeting together, I would meet individually with both partners. We would come up with a treatment plan, including frequency of meeting and schedule, treatment goals, and what each person wants from the therapy. We might focus on identifying feelings, changing toxic communication patterns, and opening up communication.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I utilize an eclectic approach when working with couples which includes Imago Relationship Therapy and a number of other processes that help each partner feel fully heard and understood. My goal is to help you connect in a way that fosters empathy and taking responsibility for one's role in the problems which brought you to therapy. My clients often say, "I never felt like he/she heard me before. Not like this." Couples often say that they come to therapy because their relationship is not working and they want to make it work. When couples allow me to show them "another way" to improve their communication and connect with each other the results are transformative.

Barbara Bennett, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 10001 - Nearby to Sea Cliff.

Relationships are hard, as any news site will eagerly tell you. Stories of celebrity affairs, break-ups and other scandals are so common that there doesn’t seem to be much hope for the rest of us. I’m here to tell you that there is hope, even after years of tension, conflict, or emotional distance for any couple—straight, gay, dating, married, post-divorce—from any racial, ethnic, or spiritual background. Conflict happens in all relationships. But it isn’t inevitable, even after years of bad feeling. I help couples step outside of their pain and frustration to see each of their roles in these conflicts. From there, couple can begin to communicate and finally have conversations that have productive outcomes leading to greater intimacy.

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.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10001 - Nearby to Sea Cliff.

Couples therapy is not what it seems. Couples often come to therapy looking to get "closer" but moving toward more intimacy is not a linear process. As a couples therapist, I help people to focus on themselves as individuals and the movement between self-needs and relational-needs. It is the dance between these two dimensions that moves a couple toward building their unique connection, an authentic relationship built on mutuality, respect, and separateness/closeness at different times. Most couples wait to come to therapy when things have been going wrong for too long. They have tried various couples therapists who haven't had the ability to see what is not being said.

Most couples struggle to figure out how to make their relationships work at one time or another. Couples therapy can be an effective means of managing conflicts, deepening intimacy and friendship and making difficult but important decisions in and about your relationship. Each relationship is unique but most can benefit from making improvements in communication, learning more about what each partner needs and from working to most effectively negotiate differences. I have been working towards these goals with couples for over 10 years and would be happy to talk with you about whether I can be helpful to you and your partner.

Vanessa Hughes, MA, SEP

Alternative and Integrated Practitioner

In 11368 - Nearby to Sea Cliff.

Let me guess. One partner feels alone and like they don't matter and the other feels they are always being criticized and can't get anything right. The more one asks for the other to show up, the more the partner disappears physically and emotionally. You both bicker and fight and the idea of sitting and just hanging out seems elusive, if not impossible. Something like this? Often we crave connection but are blocked by the pain and the history that gets in the way. Small fights about little things become battles that highlight our struggle to have our basic relational needs met. I can help you get under the bickering to the parts crying out for connection- to an enriching relationship.
