The most important thing in couples therapy is helping both people learn what they can do differently to transform negative patterns into a mutually respectful, loving relationship. When people learn to really listen to each other, communication improves. Understanding and compassion take the place of anger and resentment, transforming power struggles into mutual support. What a relief! I specialize in helping couples move beyond the crisis of infidelity to create a relationship that's better and stronger than ever. When this happens, trust is rebuilt and both partners gain confidence that they will never again suffer the pain of an affair

Relationship counseling is the process of counseling the parties of a relationship in an effort to recognize and to better manage or reconcile troublesome differences and repeating patterns of distress. The relationship involved may be between members of a family or a couple (see also family therapy), employees or employers in a workplace, or between a professional and a client. Somehow the simple act of walking while talking out life’s issues creates an environment of possibility and change - of forward movement. Through the rhythm of walking and talking there is a sync between myself and my clients. At a moderate pace, healing and breakthroughs occur.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Sometimes it's difficult to be in a relationship. No matter how much you love someone, there can be challenges and stress points within the relationship that create conflict. Couples seek counseling for many different reasons. Negative communication, infidelity and coping through a difficult life change are some reasons why couples seek counseling. Couples who want to learn how to communicate better and re-establish intimacy also seek therapy. I specialize in helping couples learn more effective ways of communicating with one another to increase intimacy, decrease relationship tension and meet other goals important to the relationship.

Having a safe and open environment to address communication challenges, expressing vulnerability, and seeking the support to become accountable in your relationship is what couples counseling can offer. This process can help you and your partner gain greater stability and a deeper understanding of your relationship dynamic. I find that when I work with couple communication is a major issue. Therefore working with a counselor who can help you and your partner feel heard have the potential to open the door to getting certain needs in the relationship met and understood.

Eugene Devers, D.Min, ACSW, AAMFT, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker & Marriage &Family Therapist

In 19115 - Nearby to Chester.

I value and have a passion for all relationships to thrive. I successfully work with couples to enhance the quality of their relationship, and together discover better solutions to whatever is creating their dilemma or source of dissatisfaction. Being a couple is a tender, tentative, and promising bond. Yet it does not customarily benefit from the uniting, binding, and blending societal glue of law, traditions, religion, economics, or even language. Nevertheless, your relationship is meaningful, valuable, supportive, loving, and needing to flourish with fresh growth and deeper roots. Visit me at PhillyFamilyLifeCounseling.com; allow me to join with you to help create new possibilities.

A relationship requires work but it doesn't have to feel painful and exhausting along the way. Couples therapy focuses on helping partners form positive and meaningful interactions, develop relational goals, and build on communication skills in order to feel heard, understood, and deeply loved by your significant other. I use Emotion Focused Therapy to help partners label and understand each other's underlying feelings and to develop more affect and compassion for one another. I also offer couples yoga to work on intimacy and trust issues.

Addiction Therapist, Family Therapist

In 19003 - Nearby to Chester.

Coupleship is a unique dynamic. Often we fall head over heels for someone.. everything seems meant to be and then after awhile you look over at this person and think...huh? This is way more common than people think. Making a partnership work is not easy as we were promised in fairy tales, but it can be the most amazing and deepest intimacy we have ever known if we are honest, healthy and truly committed. I help couples find this true intimacy again through couples counseling. My approach is practical, respectful, and solution oriented. If you have found this, you still have hope for the relationship. This is so important, let me help you take the next step to love deeply.

Licensed Professional Counselor

It’s just not possible to have a committed relationship without going through tough times. Tough times will occur in any marriage. There's no need to get stuck there. Having my own long term marriage in addiction to my credentials and training and experience as a marriage counselor allows me to really "get it." You may be having or launching kids or find yourself struggling with how relationships work, or don’t work. Couples counseling can help you reconnect and resolve communication challenges and conflict. Yes commitment is work but when you feel your relationship get back on track it can be so worth the time and energy.
