Couples Counselor

Samantha Elliott, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

1409 W Irving Park Rd, Chicago, IL 60613

When working with couples, I work with each member to understand the perspective of their partner. I do not see one person as right and another as wrong, but instead understand that both people see the relationship and the world differently. In order for two people to be in complete harmony and intimacy, they need to be able to see and understand inner workings of the other. In couples counseling, I will facilitate conversations to help both partners get to this point of understanding and compassion.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Chicago, IL

It doesn’t matter whether you’re gay, straight or bi-sexual or whether you’re married or living together, if you’re in a committed relationship you will have issues with each other. Conflict is inevitable - what matters is how you are able to manage them and keep your relationship intact and thriving. I use a variety of techniques, grounded in psychodynamic principles and informed by attachment theory, to help you navigate the inevitable difficulties of coupledom. If you’re both committed to the process there’s a pretty good chance that we can find some ways to increase the health and well-being of your relationship. Give me a call at 773-718-4706 for a free initial consultation.

It is very common for couples to experience an increase in the amount and intensity of conflict within their relationship during times of major life changes, and thus I specialize in counseling couples making the transition to parenthood and provide both pre-marital and pre-commitment counseling as well. I can help you learn how to better deal with the stress that might be negatively impacting your relationship and can teach you constructive communication skills to reduce conflict and re-establish those old feelings of connection, closeness, and and comfort.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor & Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor

25 East Washington St. , Suite 1719, Chicago, IL 60602

Couples work is challenging but I enjoy it. I like to help people improve how they relate to each other; communicate better; work through conflicts; and connect on a deeper level. I'm also very non-judgmental and help couples work through complicated issues they sometimes have a hard time finding a therapist for such as exploring sexual boundaries or non-traditional relationship issues. Unfortunately - sometimes it's also about ending a relationship and using the therapist to help navigate a "friendly divorce" rather than an acrimonious one.

Couples Counselor

Kristen Jacobsen, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor / Therapist

3166 N. Lincoln Ave, Suite 207, Chicago, IL 60657

Relationships are built on pillars of trust and aligning values. I utilize John Gottman's research on marital stability in my practice. I also focus on the use of Gary Chapman's five love languages as a way to explore whether each person is getting his/her needs met most effectively in the relationship. I typically work with younger couples who have not yet entered into the sacrament of marriage or are recently married.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

221 e Cullerton st. Unit 101A, Chicago, IL 60616

Couples in conflict need noticeable results right away. This help restore a sense of hope that their marriage relationship can recover. This is what I work towards in the first session. After each session I give an action assignment for the couple to work at to lay the foundation for a marriage that can thrive. In couples' counseling I work for the health of your relationship over siding with any one individual. Sometimes that will mean asking you to look at how you're contributing to the conflict and other times it will be to help your partner hear what you're saying. In both cases, couples' counseling is a safe space for you and your partner to work through and resolve lingering conflicts.
