Marriage and Couples Counseling

Has your relationship hit a temporary rough patch?  Are you on the verge of separation?  Are you somewhere in between?  Do you want to heal your relationship?

The licensed marriage and family therapists at Jewish Family Services of Greater Hartford help married and unmarried couples, heterosexual and LGBT couples work through relationship challenges.

Based on Self Reflection and Insight

Our approach to marriage counseling and couples therapy is to listen and ask questions, to prompt self-reflection and insight.  This can help both people in the relationship move beyond frustrations and resentments, and toward the goal of building trust and developing a greater understanding of their partner’s perspective and needs.

Unsure about whether couples therapy will work for you?  According to research done by the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, families and couples who participate in therapy sessions indicate extremely high levels of patient satisfaction.  And JFS services are usually covered by insurance.

Divorce is liberating and disheartening, hopeful and final, eliciting often competing emotions. It can be particularly difficult on children and pose unique parenting challenges.

As Healthy a Breakup as Possible

Jewish Family Services provides counseling to couples considering, undergoing, or after a break-up, separation, or divorce. Our goal is to help you, your spouse or partner, and your children experience as healthy a break-up as possible, to help you create a divorce that works.

For families, we also offer two divorce education programs, Focus on Kids and Parent Education Program to help parents and children transition through the stresses and changes resulting from a divorce.

Jewish Family Services supports the range of emotional and mental health needs of adults living with moderate intellectual and developmental disability.

All of our services are strength-based, building on the unique strengths that each client possesses. Also, our services are informed and guided by values of the importance of the family unit, the full acceptance and inclusion of people with disabilities in the larger community, and self-determination, dignity, and respect.

Attendance ranges from weekly to monthly sessions, based on individual needs.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy can be helpful with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, socialization difficulties, adjustment and attachment issues. All therapy is tailored to individual needs and helps clients fully interact with the community and achieve maximum independence in the least restrictive way.

Caregiver Support

We also assess and support family members and caregivers in coping with the emotional impact of caring for a loved one with disability. Family therapy can offer education, support and strategies to assist with care giving.

Community Partners

As part of our collaborative approach to disability services we also work with community partners, particularly the Jewish Association for Community Living, to promote meaningful participation in the community and minimize barriers that prevent individuals from accessing services.

Women’s Health

Our clinicians help women process and overcome the emotional and psychological impact of issues that are specific to women, such as infertility, body image, and breast cancer. They also help women address more general issues from the unique perspective of women, including marital discord, health and wellness, mindfulness, depression, and parenting issues.
