Couples & Relationship Counseling

Simcha Shtull

Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)

(347) 866-0515

My private practice (in Queen Anne) supports individuals and couples seeking to understand, reimagine, and heal relationships that have become more hurtful than nurturing. <br><br> I help my clients explore the many factors and circumstances that have contributed to the current state of the relationship, and guide them in writing new and more constructive scripts. <br> <br> RELATIONSHIP COUNSELING is for:  <br><br> COUPLES <br> - Longer-term couples struggling with distancing or ongoing conflict; <br> - Couples “on the brink” exploring options before making any final decision; <br> - Separating couples looking to do so respectfully; <br> - Early-stage couples examining compatibility for a long-term commitment; <br> - Premarital couples learning to establish positive patterns early on. <br> <br> INDIVIDUALS <br> - Processing a failed or failing relationship; <br> - Exploring ways to deal with a current relational situation; <br> - Learning new skills for improving any relationship. <br> <br>

SPECIALIZATION: <br> I specialize in relational counseling in general, and premarital/early-stage couples counseling in particular. <br><br> In our counseling sessions we will: <br> - Identify negative habits and relational patterns before they become entrenched;<br> - Learn the language of responsiveness, so as to stave off emotional starvation and distancing;<br> - Explore family-of-origin issues to better understand yourself and your partner;<br> - Strengthen communication and conflict-resolution skills;<br> - Help you examine your compatibility if you are questioning the relationship’s viability.<br> <br> Special reduced-rate, six-session package available for early-stage couples.<br> <br> ----------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br> BLOG:<br><br>
