Andrew Goodman, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
I have worked with couples for more than twenty-five years. During that time I have found it is important to balance understanding a couple as a whole and the two individuals which make up the relationship. I help a couple focus on ineffective and dysfunctional communication patterns that result in a sense of frustration and discouragement. I encourage each person to express their emotional needs more directly and openly. People often express their anger and criticism about their partner's behavior, but have difficulty asking for what they need in a clear, non-attacking way.
This approach helps couples develop constructive problem resolution skills. People become able to assert themselves more comfortably, while understanding and appreciating their partner's perspective. This approach helps people in individual therapy to understand and express themselves more clearly and directly. This leads to increased self-esteem and self-acceptance.
I have postgraduate training in psychoanalysis and psychotheapy. It is a perspective that allows me to tune into the long term issues that individuals bring with them into a relationship as well as having a sensitivity to the patterns that are played out or enacted within the current situation.
