Couples Therapy

If you are asking “Where did the intimacy go?” couples therapy can help.

How Does Couples Therapy Work?

As in marital relationships, unmarried couples can have difficulties. It could be a loss of intimacy or an endless cycle of arguments, with even the smallest thing leading to a prolonged battle between who is right and who is wrong.

Even if everything was great at first, relationships do grow and change.

In therapy, various techniques are used to find out why you’re having issues. 

Therapy doesn’t just focus on fixing problems but also on highlighting good behaviors in your relationship. Sometimes, it also deals with personal issues like depression or addiction. This shows how couples therapy can improve both your relationship and your personal health.

Using different methods, therapy can lead to big changes. It helps couples overcome problems caused by past experiences and wrong ideas. This way, couples can create happier and more supportive relationships.

In couples therapy, I help you make sense out of what is happening between you and your partner. We will work together to help you restore the emotional connection you are both longing for.

I have been a licensed marriage and couples counselor for 30 years based in Manhattan, New York.

Drawing from my training in Emotional Focused Therapy for Couples, the Gottman Method, and Family Systems Therapy, I employ a practical, collaborative, and emotionally supportive approach to couples counseling to help you stop the negative cycle in your relationship and strengthen your commitment.

I will help you discover how you keep misunderstanding each other and undermining your emotional needs for trust and intimacy. We will focus on the strengths of your relationship and then work towards its improvement.

As a couples counselor, I strive to promote positivity through healthy communication and trust-building.

This is my commitment: to give you every chance to save your relationship.

Therapy for Every Kind of Relationship

Each type of relationship has its unique challenges and dynamics, but the core goal of therapy is to foster understanding, communication, and connection between partners.

My approach is to provide practical, clear, and focused guidance to help partners understand each other better and work through their difficulties in a supportive environment.

As a couples therapist based in Manhattan with 30 years of experience, I am skilled in helping a wide variety of relationships using techniques from Emotional Focused Therapy, the Gottman Method, and Family Systems Therapy. Whether you are in a relationship with:

How Does Couples Therapy Help?

Couples counseling can change relationships in big ways. It uses special strategies to make communication better and communication is key for lasting love. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help partners connect on a deeper emotional level.

Studies show these therapy types, especially EFT, really work. They lower relationship stress and keep satisfaction high. As you move through therapy, you learn better ways to talk and listen in everyday life. This helps you and your partner deal with tough things more smoothly.

I also employ The Gottman Method, a couples therapy approach that focuses on building strong relationship foundations through managing conflict effectively, deepening intimacy and respect, and emotionally turning toward your partner.

Getting Started

The first thing to do is talk openly with your partner about the benefits of getting professional help.

Once you both agree, you’ll find many experts, like marriage therapists and psychologists, who specialize in fixing relationships.

Nowadays, couples therapy can include online options, making it easier for everyone. You can get help no matter where you are or how busy you are.

The relationship between a couple and their counselor is important.

Talking with a prospective therapist will give you a better idea of how we can interact and work together. 

Please contact me so we can get a better idea of whether I'm the right fit for your needs.
