Marital Therapy

Couples Counseling

We know that 50 percent of the couples who enter into marriage get divorced, and two-thirds say they are not getting what they want out of the relationship. This is not because they don’t love each other at the outset of their time together. Rather, it is because most couples who are struggling do not have the skills to develop a long-term intimate relationship — they just don't know how.

The challenges of successfully sustaining a long-term commitment or ending an existing relationship can be overwhelming. Gestalt Associates help couples and families develop specific skills to confront crises, deal with transition, transform rigid patterns and return to intimacy. We help you become better parents and assist you with the challenges that come with remarriage and blended families.

To build long-lasting relationships, people need to engage with each other successfully over a long period of time. Many times, couples find themselves in situations where there seems to be no resolutions.

  • They feel disengaged.
  • They are fighting all the time.
  • One is unfaithful or has an emotional affair.
  • They are getting along but they are not as close as they want to be romantically, interpersonally and sexually.

Gestalt Associates addresses all of these conflicts and many more to its world-tested model of marital therapy. Gestalt Associates' Clinical Director Norman Shub is a clinical member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. Our internationally respected Heart to Heart marital enrichment program is time-tested and internationally employed, benefiting thousands of people through the skills learned in the program.
