Couples Therapy & Marriage Counseling in New York City
Whether you are in a marriage or simply in a relationship as a couple, would you like to feel a deeper, more satisfying emotional connection with your partner? Do you want to rebuild a sense of trust, restore physical intimacy or acquire some tools to deal effectively with everyday frustrations? Perhaps you’re interested in resolving resentful or harmful feelings toward each other so you can revitalize the closeness and love you had initially.
Compassionate Therapy When You Face Relationship Challenges
Marriage counseling can help couples work through all types of relationship challenges, including:
- Infidelity of one or both partners
- The loss of trust
- Financial challenges
- Problems with emotional and/or physical intimacy
- Grief after miscarriage or the loss of a child
- Trauma and recovery
- Role conflicts
- Communication problems
Resolving Issues through Marriage Counseling
The decision to seek professional therapy takes great personal courage. Some couples come to therapy as a result of a life crisis that puts stress on their relationship. Others come to therapy as a result of communication breakdowns that over time have eroded the happy and satisfying relationships they once enjoyed.
Throughout the course of our counseling together, I can help you explore your attachment and the expectations you have of each other. I can help you approach your relationship in a manner that encourages positive interaction and mutually sensitive emotional responses. There are tools available to help you learn and develop more effective ways to communicate that deal with conflict and faulty communication styles before they intensify.
Premarital, Divorce or Other Family Issues
Many of my clients are people who find themselves sturdy and successful in their careers and in other areas of life, but nonetheless struggle with their intimate relationships. Couples therapy can also address issues related to separation and divorce, including custody, visitation, and stepchildren. Premarital counseling is also available to couples.
I work closely to identify your needs, and tailor my services accordingly. We will collaborate to find the answers you seek, make the choices necessary to move forward and find comfort with your decisions and actions. Working together, you will not have to manage this alone.
