Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 11377 - Nearby to Westbury.

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.

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 sometimes find that their relationships – once the source of so much intimacy and joy – have become disappointing, even destructive. We all reach impasses in our relationships, and these can be opportunities to overcome obstacles and grow together or to recognize irreconcilable differences and end the relationship in a healthy way. Together in therapy we can work to help you shift from criticizing and blaming to discovering individual feelings that underlie the surface conflicts. It can have a liberating and transformative effect on both you relationship and yourselves.

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.

Couples Counselor

Lauren Levy, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10128 - Nearby to Westbury.

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.

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.

In 11030 - Nearby to Westbury.

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

In 06830 - Nearby to Westbury.

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.

You know relationships are meant to offer love and care...Yet your connections are rimmed with insecurity, worry, doubt and a feeling of instability. You're not sure if there's something about way you interact in relationships or if it's related to the people you're around. Research proves that the biggest predictor of a happy, long life is the quality of relationships you're in. You're ready to clear the fog, and build solid connections.

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.

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.

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.

Treatment may include examining how each of the partners' personalities and values influence communication and behavior within the relationship.

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?
