Couples Counseling

Couples counseling provides a safe, professionally facilitated environment to productively communicate emotions, thoughts, and understanding between you and your partner. We focus on encouraging couples to learn and use healthy communication skills that increase understanding, empathy and validation. Couples counseling can help you to have closer, healthier, and more satisfying relationships. You and your partner can create the goals for therapy that serve your needs.  In couples therapy:

  • Partners can express their feelings and needs
  • Listen and show their understanding
  • Learn to convey empathy and validation
  • Learn to balance the relationship and self care 
  • Bring awareness to co-dependency concerns
  • Build the strength necessary to make positive changes
  • Learn how to have healthier and more satisfying relationships

Dr. Cheryl Kornfeld, PsyDPeggy Kaplin Zaloga, LMSW and Stephen Lewis, LMHC work with couples.
