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.

Couples Counselor

Barbara Shaw, MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 19468 - Nearby to West Chester.

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.

Cheryl Sparks, PhD, LPC
Couples Counselor

Cheryl Sparks, PhD, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 19087 - Nearby to West Chester.

We are meant to form connections that are safe and close and loving, but most couples at some time or another find themselves stuck in a repetitive pattern of interacting which leaves each person feeling hurt and alone. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, the most well-researched approach to couple therapy, is a powerful tool that will help get to the heart of the problem and to find your way back to that experience of loving connection. Interrupting that downward spiral feels like hard work for most couples, but beginning to move to a new, warm, close place, is immensely rewarding, even for those who have previously been distressed or shut down. I have great hope for couples!

Qatana Samanen, Ph.D.
Couples Counselor

Qatana Samanen, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 19301 - Nearby to West Chester.

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

Lisa Silk, MSW, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Lisa Silk, MSW, LCSW

Addiction Therapist, Family Therapist

In 19003 - Nearby to West 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.
