Couples Counselor

Lee Bowers, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Downingtown

I always prefer to see couples BEFORE they get married, because so many problems can be avoided by getting started out on the right foot. By learning good communication and problem solving skills before marriage, you can move on to that next step with confidence and skill. I also work with couples for whom marriage is not the goal, who are gay or lesbian, or couples who simply have reached an impasse on an issue and are looking for an objective third party.

Couples Counselor

Barbara Shaw, MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Downingtown

You are struggling in your relationship and come to me feeling confused, hopeless, overwhelmed, angry, lonely, unloved, frustrated. . . I am specifically trained to help you identify what your true emotions and motivations are, what you are both really thinking and feeling. Often, couples feel they are in direct conflict when in fact they are simply not understanding the other's point of view. In many cases, when individuals realize what is really going on for the other beneath the surface, these insights alone can promote healing in the relationship. Gradually, conflict and feelings of isolation and confusion are replaced by feelings of understanding and connection.

Vivian Good, LPC, MA, MS, ACS

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Downingtown

As a couples counselor I am on the side of the relationship. While I may spend some time focusing on one partner or the other in order to understand relational dynamics, my primary goal is to help the relationship. Each relationship is unique. Some issues that affect couples include trust building, healthy boundaries, open communication, individual and relational growth, transitional life stages, financial issues, decision making. We will identify the strengths and weakness of your specific relationship, explore what makes a successful relationship and suggest ways to improve your relationship.

Couples Counselor

Qatana Samanen, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Downingtown

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

Couples Counselor

Cheryl Sparks, PhD, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Downingtown

Every couple's relationship has areas where growth is needed. If you are wondering whether your relationship can last, it may be helpful to identify the specific areas of concern and get some practical help working through the difficulties. I offer a well-researched assessment tool for those who need a clearer idea of where to start, and helpful tools to improve those areas like arguing vs good communication, disappointment with the level of emotional intimacy, or quality of your sex life. You may need help resolving repeated disagreements around finances, in-laws or parenting. Rebuilding a sense of trust and safety in the relationship will encourage you to risk new levels of closeness.

Couples Counselor

Jeffrey Kauffman, M.A., M.S.S., L.C.S.W., B.C.D., F.T

licensed clinical social worker/ psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Downingtown

Couples seek therapy for many reasons. The starting place is to clarify what the cause is for marital distress. Often improving communications is needed. Improving communication is almost always about learning to listen to each other. Improved communication often helps with a lot of difficulties in a relationship. Sometimes there are differences or disappointments that need to be worked through. There may be multiple issues to be triaged. Sometimes there are betrayals which have damaged the relationship. Reckoning with the injuries inflicted, especially the lost of trust is difficult and painful, but, if the relationship is to survive and the bond to be fulfilling this must be dealt with.
