We are also all human, and at times these relationships do not live up to what we had hoped for. Together, with different techniques and appropriate help, issues can be addressed and the relationship can be continued (or, if desired, terminated) so that everyone has a sense of wholeness and peace within this important dimension of their lives. Christopher will guide your as you explore what is going on and though the journey to wholeness.

Nikki DiFranks, PhD, MA, MS, LCSW-R

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

1841 Broadway, Suite 700, New York City, NY 10023

Although some clinicians may treat unmarried/married couples differently, I do not. This is because I do not take a position, often assumed with pastoral counseling, that a couple ought stay together. My aim is to assess what the couple and family system desires, and where there is disparity, to facilitate a solution that is viable for all. Often, I work to help a confused couple decide whether they wish to stay together, and if they do not, I can help them decide how to separate, as well as help other family members make this transition. Many times, couples/family therapy is about improving the relationships without intentions separation. Assessment of needs is critical to my approach.

Couples Counselor

Tania Suarez, MSEd, LPC, LMHC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of New York City, NY

Relationships take work, commitment, sacrifice, communication, and compromise. None of this is easy! And when you and your partner don't see eye to eye or have differing values, this becomes even more stressful and frustrating. I can help facilitate open communication between you and your partner to help you understand the root of your problems, how they are negatively affecting your relationship, and how to work through and resolve them. It's a process and takes time, but worth the effort if the relationship is important to you.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

New York City, NY 10013

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?

Couples Counselor

Jessica Allen, LCSW, ACT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

Within Driving Distance of New York City, NY

Couples therapy is a means of resolving conflict or communication struggles that couples may not have been able to manage as effectively on their own. This type of treatment involves both partners coming in for treatment and discussing the issues in a way that allows for possible change. The aim is to help couples gain a better understanding of themselves, their partner, and the typical issues that arise to help them make changes that can bring them closer together.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of New York City, NY

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

Couples Counselor

Jeff Robinson, MSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of New York City, NY

Coming to counseling as a couple is fraught with risk. Will the therapist be fair? Will I be heard? Will I feel a connection with the therapist? What will be involved? Most couples seek therapy well into the conflict--yes, never too late, but more challenging to heal. It is the responsibility of the therapist to hear both stories. Each partner comes with his/her own histories that have become part of the narrative. We need to take a look at this to see how it has impacted the relationship. We need to highlight the need for empathy in our relationships—we may not agree, but can we understand and feel how our partner may be experiencing the matter at hand? Can we have compassion?

Couples Counselor

Howard Rossen, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of New York City, NY

Maintaining and nourishing a meaningful relationship is far harder than anyone can reasonably predict. You and your partner are both independently formed individuals that "come together to form a more perfect union." But if we don't learn to adapt and respect the needs of our partner how can we grow as a couple? And if we don't honor our individual needs and desires how can we breathe within ourselves? It is this battle of mutual respect for our relationship while honoring the self-respect of our individuality that creates the chasm of a couple's conflict. A healthy and supportive counseling environment can begin the process of regaining the spark that was ignited the first time you met.
