Struggling to connect with your partner? Frustrated that your partner doesn't listen to you? Tired of arguing, fighting?
I can help!
I am a licensed, board-certified, professional counselor (LCPC) with an MA in Counseling from Johns-Hopkins University. I have advanced training in marriage counseling . I am also a Registered Nurse with a master’s in Nursing (MSN) from the University of Maryland .
My style of couple counseling conveys empathy, collaboration and objectivity. Couples who come for therapy feel heard and supported. They feel validated. Their pain and issues are dealt with care, yet with fairness.
My advanced training in the Gottman's couple counseling, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Prepare Enrich counseling, combined with experience and empathy are key elements in getting to the root of the problems and customizing tools to address these specific problems. Following therapy, using the customized tools, couples feel more connected, feel the love and bonding that initially brought them together. They are able to identify problems much faster and use the tools to prevent escalation, regulate conflicts and repair fights.
Following therapy, couples feel more confident in their pursuits of a happy togetherness.
Practicing as a maternal child nurse for almost 40 years, working with couples, new parents, and individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds and different settings has led me to the awareness of the need to help people holistically.
Here is what couples said at the six months follow up phone call after finishing therapy with me:
"Thank you, Orly for teaching us how to manage a conflict and give us hope. We are doing great! We use the new skills that we've gained on a regular basis. It feels good to be successful and connected!!! C & B
