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)

Relationships play a role in almost every aspect of life. If any of the following questions apply to you: Do you want more out of your relationships? Are you experiencing conflict in your intimate relationships? Are you afraid of loosing a relationship? Are you lonely? Are you frustrated by looking for a love relationship? Have you just lost a relationship? I can help individuals look inward and understand more about themselves and what is getting in the way, so that you can take steps forward towards being more fulfilled.

Is your relationship suffering from distance, anger and negativity, lack of intimacy, boredom, distrust or betrayal? Couples therapy can often help turn these upsetting situations around. I help couples develop new skills of understanding, listening and connection. In sessions we identify and learn how to implement positive connections. . My work is influenced by the approaches of John Gottman, Sue Johnson and Stan Tatkin. My nearly 30 years of work experience has helped me learn a great deal from my clients.

Couples Counselor

Edgard Danielsen, PhD, LP

Licensed Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Upper Nyack

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.

Couples Counselor

Kelley Hopkins-Alvarez, LPC,NCC,BCC,MS,MSEd

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

Within driving distance of Upper Nyack

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

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Upper Nyack

I get to know the couples as individuals and as a couple. So, I would start with a joint session with the both of you, and then see you both individually. The reason for that is that people share different information with and without their partner. All information is confidential, and the rule is "No leaking" (that is, not to talk about your individual session, with me, with your partner).

Couples Counselor

Lauren Levy, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Upper Nyack

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.

Couples Counselor

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

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

Within driving distance of Upper Nyack

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

Elizabeth Zimmerman, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Upper Nyack

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.

I cannot get along with my spouse or partner. No matter what I do, it is never right. He/she does not hear what I say, it is always heard in a distorted manner. I am at a loss! If any of these issues resonate with you, I can help you and your partner develop a better relationship. We can work together to accomplish whatever your goals may be.
