Clinical Psychologist

In 22102 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

Like all psychotherapy, couples therapy is a process, but one in which I work to help both members of a partnership to feel heard while also working for measurable change that couples can notice and know when they are making progress. I use attachment models to inform my work with couples–helping couples to develop a safer, more fulfilling and secure partnership. I focus on both present circumstances while also working to understand how problems develop and providing ways to prevent their reoccurrence. Some of the issues that couples often seek treatment for include the following: Communication Managing Difficult Life Transitions Separation/Divorce Loss/Grief Parenting Saving your Marriage Pre-Marital Counseling Managing Conflict

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 22314 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

Every relationship has its challenges. Sometimes it takes an outside person to help you and your partner work through these challenges in an empathic and objective way. I use techniques that have been proven to work. Together, we will create a trusting and safe environment where you and your partner can talk openly about the issues that divide you. I don’t take sides or place blame. Instead, I work to understand each of you as individuals and as a couple. Our work will focus on building better communication skills, having more positive experiences as a couple, and coping more effectively with challenges. Together, you and your partner can build a stronger relationship.

Couples Counselor

Laurel Fay, M.S., LCMFT

Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist

In 20910 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

Working with couples is my area of expertise and passion. I have seen relationships transform through the power of mutual understanding and increased sensitivity. Often couples become so entrenched in certain communication patterns that they can't even really see when and if their partner is trying to do something different. This is one way working with a good couples therapist can be so powerful - they can act as "translator" for partners, and dig through the years of pain and pattern to what's really in each other's minds and hearts. If both partners are willing, it's amazing what can happen; and even if only one person is willing, change is possible. I hold the hope until they can.

Couples Counselor

Kathleen Hanagan, LCSW, TEP

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 22301 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

Working with couples is a dynamic process that requires the therapist to maintain a safe space where both people can feel heard and understood. I am a certified Imago therapist and use a dialogical process to increase the emotional intimacy between the two people. I have worked with straight, bi, gay and lesbian and transgendered couples, and many different ethnic groups---and find that the challenges are essentially the same---to create a bond of trust that allows for all parts of the two people to show up and be accepted in the relationship. I share helpful handouts that people can use when they are home, to be able to deal with conflict more skillfully.

Nancy Montagna, Ph. D.
Couples Counselor

Nancy Montagna, Ph. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 20910 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

There are two most basic fears of intimacy that we all have: one is fear of abandonment, the other is fear of being taken over, of losing my autonomy. In a relationship, people often become polarized with one clinging and the other seeming distant. With awareness of our fears and how to take care of ourselves and each other, we will bring out the best in each other. Everyone knows how to speak and listen, right? Not so. The most difficult skills to learn are to speak self-responsibly about your own experience and to truly listen and understand the other person's experience even when you don't like it. To learn these skills enables love. I can help.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 20906 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

Sometimes a couple reaches a place where they need to work on resolving different conflict in their relationship. There may be communication issues and the ability to make thoughtful decisions about the relationship is lost. I use the Gottman approach to help you identify where the major issues are and interventions to help improve communication. I will be your neutral mediator, I do not take sides. My focus will be on the relationship and both of you will get time to give your story. The couple will have an opportunity to talk through the issues and at times figure out what the issues are.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

In 20016 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

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?

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 22101 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

I work with couples to help them create new and stronger avenues of communication--allowing them to find, once again, the joy each partner had in the other. Whether work has stressed your relationship, or children have created the gap, we can reimagine ways to find closer connections. Perhaps you feel as if you're roommates more than a couple. Or one of you has been tempted to stray--or has strayed--but you want to do the work to come back together. Therapy helps you find the new ways you need to communicate, leading to a stronger bond between you.

Certified Sex Addiction & Anger Management Therapist

In 20852 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

Learning that one's spouse or partner has been living a "secret" sexual life can very quickly lead to the dissolution of a marriage or relationship. I work with couples to help heal the damage that one spouse has done to the marriage and family. Couples therapy can also be helpful in helping couples heal from the damage caused by a spouse's anger issues.

Elaine Klionsky, J.D., Ph.D., CGP

Psychologist

In 20814 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

Couples counseling (whether with romantic partners, marital partners, friends or colleagues) is an effective means of improving your life, your partner's life, and the condition of those living with and around you. My approach is based on a blend of writers such as Drs. John & Julie Gottman, Ester Perel, Terry Real, etc..and theories such as Imago and Emotionally Focused Therapy. I do not think any one theory or method works for all clients. We will work together to determine what works best for you and your partner in order to facilitate growth and to enable you to have greater understanding, compassion, and improved communication in your own home.

Couples Counselor

Beth Levine, LCSW-C

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 20852 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

Couples usually go to therapy when they are feeling distressed. Maybe they are also feeling isolated from each other, distrustful, or like they just can't communicate with each other. I like to start by getting to know what is is like for each of you to be in your relationship and how each of you understands how your relationship ended up in this distressed place. When I work with couples, I use a model called Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). EFT provides me with a map, a way to help couples out of their stuck places. I have earned my Certification as an Emotionally Focused Couple Therapist and Supervisor.

Jonathan Ladd, LCSW-C

Psychotherapist for Individuals and Couples

In 20878 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

Once, one of my clients told me that their mother told them, "90% of couples' problems had to do with: Unmet Expectations, Undelivered Communications, and Unresolved Conflicts." That covers a lot of ground & rings true, doesn't it? At the same time, "knowing why" there are problems, is not the same thing as "knowing what to do" to address your concerns, nor "actually doing" what is necessary (realistically & practically) to address your concerns. Let me be your "guide" in helping you "traverse the terrain of the heart" -- whether you want to build a solid foundation for your relationship, heal & repair it, enhance it, sort out 'where to from here' or end it in the most humane & sane way.

Relationships are hard! They can bring out the best in us...and also the worst. What's more, its easy to feel confused and unable to see what is happening clearly when things in your relationship are troubled. Relationships can be up & down, and often it is that one familiar pattern or issue that triggers everything. As you and your partner are so 'in it', it is pretty difficult to find your own way out of the same old behavior. I work with couples, providing an unbiased and neutral perspective, helping you gain greater understanding into what is happening and how you want things to change. Yes, relationships are hard, but also contain infinite potential for healing & renewal.

Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor

In 20006 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

Are you engaged and need premarital counseling? Or, perhaps you are married and simply "fell out of love". Is there an infidelity that needs to be forgiven, and the desire to repair the marriage? Is arguing the norm between the two of you? Through faith-based counseling a healthier "couple" will emerge and manifest. In a nonjudgmental and safe environment, exploration will take place to identify and eradicate the problematic circumstances. I look forward to working with you, and I applaud you for taking the first step toward a happier state of co-existence! Let's start your tomorrow today.

Laurie Levine, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 20170 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

The first kiss, the fun in the flirtation and the comfort of a warm hug from a partner gives us hope in the couples relationship. But, being in a couple (either heterosexual or homosexual) is HARD. We strive to get our needs met, be heard and find balance in the relationship. Many couples find that when their kids leave the home that their connection has suffered. Often it just takes an unbiased person to help maneuver through that age old argument or the newest wound. I have worked with many couples who have rediscovered their passion and realized how much they not only love each other, but really like each other as well.

Couples may seek the help of a therapist for various reasons (such as difficulty in communication or recovery after an infidelity). Exploring and improving issues such as communication, commitment level, and understanding the needs and wants of their partner are common issues that are targeted in couples counseling. Whether it be to better improve your relationship or working to explore whether or not the relationship can be saved, it can be helpful to have an objective therapist present to help a couple better understand each person's perspective, identify and improve communication, and help to foster a better sense of understanding and perspective of each individual.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 20850 - Nearby to Franklin Farm.

Couples therapy can be like inviting someone into your “home,” the special relational zone that you share with your significant other. Teletherapy can offer further enrichment to the therapeutic process, in addition to convenience factors. I strive to maintain a neutral and gentle perspective, helping you each observe and better manage your relational patterns of communion or disconnect. I can adapt my style to help you learn and practice new ways to empathize with your partner’s perspective, communicate effectively, resolve conflict and enjoy healthy connected-ness. I use tools such as the Myers-Briggs temperament styles, IMAGO techniques, and the Prepare-Enrich assessment survey.

Communication. Trust. Connection. All three are important to any committed relationship, but they require teamwork to develop and maintain. I think of your relationship as a team of two. Sometimes one of you can pursue individual goals that cause your relationship to improve - like a star quarterback on the football field. But to experience the greatest change in your relationship, I’ll encourage each of you to explore and pursue individual objectives that promote the success of your team of two. Working as a team, you can discover ways to improve communication, build trust, and reconnect. This is how I help couples, and if the approach appeals to you, please contact me
