Types of Couples Counseling

Long Island Counseling Services has structured relationship and marriage counseling techniques for couples in different stages in their relationships. We’re able to offer:

  • Pre-Marital Counseling – Before you get married, it helps to learn the skills necessary to commit and take on the next stages of your relationship. Pre-marital counseling is a great way to do this, making it possible to have a stronger marriage and ensure a lifelong commitment. 
  • Marriage Counseling – If your marriage is struggling, stagnant, or you’re having too many arguments about finances, romance, sex, or other issues, our Long Island marriage counseling services can create a space that is free of judgment to help you work through these issues. 
  • Counseling for Major Life Changes – Every relationship will have to go through changes and struggles. For example, there may be financial difficulties, or job changes, or relocation, or a parent moving in to be cared for. Many couples find them that therapy helps them navigate these changes. 
  • Family Counseling – Navigating family issues also comes with its own unique challenges. We provide therapy for parents and those struggling to conceive, and can integrate other family members as needed. 
  • Urgent Issues – There may be a time where you’re faced with a marriage crisis, such as infidelity or the threat of an impending divorce. We can provide you with “emergency” couples counseling for more urgent issues that need immediate help. 
  • Parental Counseling – Parenthood is challenging. Learning to be a parent, a co-parent, an adoptive parent, or a parent that has suffered a loss comes with many challenges. It is helpful to work with a therapist that can help you overcome those challenges. 
  • Individual Relationship Counseling – The benefits of relationship therapy is not limited to couples. It can also help individuals that need help navigating the dating scene, recovering from divorce or abuse, learning to trust, or simply learn how to be a better partner. Individual relationship counseling can also be used to address anxiety, addiction, and other issues that can affect relationships.

At Long Island Counseling Services, our therapists and couples counselors identify the issues that are affecting your relationships, and provide solutions that you can integrate into your day to day life.

Benefits of Couples Counseling

Here on Long Island, we all live busy and potentially stressful lives. Our relationships are often the a source of love and comfort during hard times, with our partners representing the person we lean on the most to feel happy, important, and valued. But relationships are made up of two individuals, and that means that conflicts and challenges can occur. 

Couples counseling provides many benefits that not only make it easier to find happiness in your relationship, but also to find happiness within yourself as well. Some of the benefits of couples counseling include:

  • Less “walking on eggshells” with more productive communication and conflict resolution.
  • Chance to share your needs in a mediated and judgment free space.
  • More intimacy, both sexual and non-sexual, to build love between partners.
  • Greater levels of kindness and being attentive to each other’s needs.
  • Ability to show children what a happy, functioning couple will look like.

There are also some relationships that simply are not meant to be. Even if you’ve decided to separate permanently, couples counseling can help you as individuals navigate the issues that often arise, and do so in a way that is better for your long term wellbeing.
