Couples Psychotherapy 
Mindfulness Training for Individuals, Couples or Groups
Couples tend to seek help when they feel stuck in patterns of relating to each other that aren't working, are disruptive, or destructive to the relationship and/or the family.  They also seek help when faced with an important decision to make including whether to get married, have children, break up, or to cope with the effects of infidelity. Couples therapy provides a safe space, where you will:

  • Discover the origins of the underlying problems in the relationship
  • Develop effective listening skills
  • Develop effective ways to identify and articulate thoughts, feelings and needs 
  • Learn to diffuse arguments 
  • Differentiate between family history and current events
  • Learn to value, accept and work with each person's strengths and limitations
  • Work together towards common goals
  • Increase feelings and expressions of intimacy

Mindfulness is a process of bringing your attention to whatever thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations arise in the moment without judging your experiences.  Bringing attention to your full experience, helps individuals and couples:

  • Develop personal insight and awareness 
  • Develop self-understanding, acceptance and freedom to change
  • Develop an ability to observe and reflect on your thoughts, feelings and sensory reactions
  • Develop an ability to make thoughtful choices versus being impulsive
  • Improve attention, focus, productivity, reduce unnecessary distractions
  • Reduce anxiety and improve ability to respond to symptoms of anxiety
  • Develop compassion for yourself and others

If you have any questions regarding beginning psychotherapy or are interested in having a speaker come to your business or healthcare center, I would like to hear from you at or 212.971.4422.
