I work with all sorts of couples who are looking for a safe place to explore struggles with infidelity, loneliness, communication, etc. In early 2023, I began a pursuit to become a Certified Sex Therapist. At this stage in the game, I'm a Certified Sex-Informed Couples Therapist. So yes, we can also talk about sex. I utilize skills and techniques from the Gottman Method for working with Couples. I've completed Levels 1 & 2 Gottman Method training.

— Cyndi Peters, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Northbrook, IL

My approach in working with couples is to have each person learn about their own inner dynamics. I talk about turning the "microscope on yourself" to learn what is really driving you so that you can communicate your needs more clearly. You cannot communicate clearly what you aren't clear on within yourself. Most folks are focused on changing the other person, yet your partners is a mirror to see your own dynamics. this is powerful & courageous work.

My training and supervision as a licensed marriage and family therapist is in couple's therapy and family systems theory. I am trained in a wide array of family systems and couple's therapy theory, and am flexible integrating a variety of approaches to best help my couples and families by meeting them where they are to serve their specific needs. This is particularly helpful for my clients as opposed to other more rigid approaches which only draw on one or two theories.

As a licensed Marriage Family therapist, I received masters level training in couples counseling.

Couples counseling is necessary when our anguish and suffering is less about ourselves, but stemming from conflict in our relationships. There are some problems that we cannot solve on our own, but need to work through together with our partners.

— Elliott Blitenthal, Psychotherapist in Flushing, NY

Couples counseling is my jam. I like seeing the whole relationship in the room whether your relationship is just beginning or perhaps ending -- talking together is the style that I see working best. I think, and research shows, that when more people are in the room, the conversations are more productive. For non-monogamous or poly couples including others or a wider polycule in therapy is an effective way to create positive change.
