Is your relationship / marriage encountering challenges?

 

Long Island Couples Therapy | Long Island Marriage Counseling

Many people think of couples and marriage counseling as a last resort. Sometimes it is. Yet couples and marriage counseling is not just about saving a relationship. It’s also about simply making it better, and rebuilding the bonds of trust, love, and comfort that make relationships so desirable in the first place. Those in and near Long Island seek out couples therapy for a variety of reasons:

  • Your relationship or marriage isn’t providing you with the happiness you desire.
  • Your relationship or marriage is at a critical transition point.
  • You and your partner are having frequent arguments or avoid communication.
  • You want to increase the passion, love, and intimacy in relationships.

 

The goals of couples and marriage therapy are to make your relationship better, no matter where you are in your dating, relationship, or married life. Connecting with someone else is one of the best parts of the human experience, and whenever you need help, a Long Island psychologist with experience working with couples and an effective approach for rebuilding trust is the right choice.

My Approach to Relationship and Marriage Therapy

With offices in Garden City and Lawrence, and serving all of the nearby cities and towns in Long Island and surrounding areas including, Merrick, Levittown, Rockville Centre, Oceanside, Floral Park and more, many of my clients are couples that are in some degree of distress, or are trying to build increased intimacy in their relationship in order to make it last.

My goal is to create a safe, judgment free space of open communication, and to use an objective lens on every disagreement to find the solutions that are going to have the longest lasting effects. My strategy involves helping both partners clarify their needs and goals, feel empowered to change themselves and accept love from their partner, learn to communicate safely, feel more connected, and achieve a more enriching and satisfying relationship.

I use an approach called Complementary Dynamic Experiential Learning. This approach will often involve meeting with each partner independently, both as an opportunity to share your thoughts and to discover if there are any individual issues that may be affecting your relationship that you are struggling to communicate. The addition of this individual component is one of the reasons my Long Island Couples and Marriage Counseling service is effective. Please read more about this on the My Approach page.

I work with couples at all walks of life:

  • Couples that are dating
  • Couples that are considering marriage or engaged.
  • Couples that have recently been married.
  • Couples that are struggling to communicate.
  • Couples trying to recover from fights or infidelity.
  • Couples struggling with their kids, money, or intimacy.
  • Couples who want to achieve clarity about how to proceed with the relationship.
  • Couples on the verge of separation or divorce.
  • Couples that have already ended the relationship, but want to be on better terms.

 

You don’t have to wait until your relationship is already on the brink of failure, nor do you have to think that it’s “too late.” Give me a call today at (516) 732-0273, and let’s start working on healing your relationship as soon as possible.
