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?

My approach to couples counseling is unique. It is not about telling me your problem and having me find a solution-it is about facing each other and communicating and together perhaps ironing out a solution. There is no "he said, she said"! The structure of the session is set in a safe and healing environment that allows each of you to face one another and find the words you want him or her to hear but haven't been able to say and perhaps retrieve the love you lost. There is no problem too big or too small. Come to couple counseling and see what you can salvage; and if you cannot I will help you separate in peace and harmony. Partners in business can also find couples counseling useful.

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?

Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

Within Driving Distance of New York City, NY

Every couple is unique in the way the partners relate, communicate, and approach conflict--or fail to do so. For that reason I treat every couple according to its own very specific issues. If you feel you’ve been coming up against the same problems with no resolution, or have had a new crisis emerge in your relationship, getting help sooner rather than waiting can often repair and strengthen the relationship. I work short term and am solution-focused.

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 often go through ups and downs. While this can be normal, many of us have discovered at times that we may not have the emotional, interpersonal, or practical skills to navigate this as well as we would like. There is a great deal of evidence that cognitive behavioral couples therapy is effective for increasing relationship satisfaction. There is even evidence that effective couples therapy can help to reduce depression symptoms. While a romantic relationship may require work, we also want it to be a source of support. Learning skills to effectively communicate, problem solve, and accept the situations a couple faces can significantly improve both partners' satisfaction.

Psychotherapist

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.

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.

Couples Counselor

Tania Suarez, MSEd, LMHC, NCC

Licensed Mental Health 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.

Within Driving Distance of New York City, NY

Has your relationship become something that isn't what you planned? Were you so happy as a couple in the beginning but now, years later, you find yourself asking questions like, "Who is this person?" Has the joy vanished? Do you wonder if you have a partner or a roommate? Has the passion disappeared? Relationships take work and can be difficult, and psychotherapy with Dr. Swensen might be just what you need. I can help you learn to talk in different ways to each other and express things that have eluded you in the past.
