This content was provided by Dr. Zwerdling " Do you long for closeness and connection, but end up stuck in the same old conflicts? Has there been a breakdown in communication, intimacy, or sex? Are you having trouble healing and rebuilding trust following an affair? Does it seem like your partner just doesn't understand you no matter how hard you try? I've been helping couples with exactly these kinds of problems for over 30 years. As an experienced marriage counselor and couples therapist, I understand how couples can get stuck in conflicts even though they love each other and want to create closeness and intimacy. I can give you the tools to improve communication, work out your differences, and find your way back to each other emotionally and sexually. If there's been an affair, I can offer you help to heal the pain and rebuild trust and security. My style is very gentle, understanding and supportive, and I provide clear guidance and direction to help you move forward to a happier, more fulfilling relationship. I have trained for many years to become the first therapist in Monmouth and Ocean Counties to receive full certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), widely regarded as the most effective method of couples therapy and marriage counseling available today. I am recognized by the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy, and currently help teach the method to other therapists both locally and regionally. I am committed to bringing all my skills and experience to the repair and renewal of your marriage. Together we will focus on solutions to bring you happiness and lasting love. In my therapeutic work with individual adults, I focus on depression, anxiety, divorce adjustment, life transitions, addictions and codependency, and healing from trauma. As a licensed psychologist, I tailor my therapeutic approach to your specific needs to make sure you receive the help and support that is best for you. You don't have to do this alone. I offer practical, compassionate care that brings relief and hope. My expertise in problem solving, coping strategies, communication skills, personal growth, relationship improvement and emotional healing can help you change old patterns of behavior and begin to solve problems with lasting solutions, create more satisfying relationships, and live a more balanced and joyful life.

This content was provided by Dr. Zwerdling "After almost 30 years of experience in couples therapy and marriage counseling, I found myself attracted to Emotionally Focused Therapy for many reasons. EFT is based on a clear understanding of adult love and the things that cause distress and uncertainty in our relationships. It offers a clear road map for helping couples get back on track. While many other models suggest that couples try specific negotiation or communication strategies, my experience with couples showed me that these techniques often do not produce lasting results, and do not hold up when things get stressful and difficult emotions become activated. By contrast, EFT looks beneath the surface at the deeper emotions and unmet needs and fears of both partners and brings to light what is really driving the conflict and maintaining the negative relationship cycle. We get to the root of things. "
