Relationship Counseling for Individuals and Couples

A Personal Message from
Karen Greenhouse Ph.D., MFT, CSAT

If you are experiencing a crisis in your relationship, or you are in gridlock with your partner, arguing about the same issues over and over without resolution, you have come to the right place.

If you have lost trust in your partner due to a betrayal and you can’t navigate your way back to a healthy relationship, we can help you.

If you have recently discovered that your partner has had an affair, has a secret life or is suffering from an addiction, and your world has turned upside down from the discovery, we can help you.

If you and your partner generally have a good relationship and have begun to experience communication problems and are growing apart, you have come to the right place.

I’m Karen Greenhouse, Ph.D., MFT, CSAT, founder of The Institute for Couples Counseling. I’m a Couples Counseling Specialist, trained specifically to work with couples and individuals in helping them repair their relationships and create loving, respectful, and emotionally intelligent partners and families.

Currently in the United States, ONE in every TWO marriages end in divorce. That’s a 1 in 2 chance that if you’re married or engaged, you could be affected by this statistic. Most couples wait an average period of seven years before seeking professional help to repair their relationship. By then, it can be like resurrecting the Titanic to repair the relationship. 

The Institute for Couples Counseling can support and guide you in creating significant change in your relationship. We not only help you communicate more effectively, we help you master the skills necessary to enhance or repair your relationship, beginning today.

It Only Takes One Person to 
Change a Relationship 

At The Institute for Couples Counseling, it is our ardent belief that indeed, it only takes ONE person to change a relationship.  If you are part of a couple and you know you and your partner need to see a Couples Therapist, but your partner won’t come in for counseling, we suggest YOU lead the way and come by yourself first. Your partner may very well follow you at a subsequent appointment.
