Maria Sikoutris Di Iorio, MA, EdS, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Scotch Plains
We specialize in Marriage and Family Therapy and treat couples and individuals. Our systemic family approach oftentimes includes all family members. Marriage therapy focuses on the conflicts and disagreements between two people. The difference between a happily married couple or unhappy couple frequently involves the interests and needs of each individual. Happily married couples understand their own and partners emotional triggers that contribute to unnecessary anxiety, frustration and resentment in relationships. Happily married couples are characterized by respect, affection, and empathy. They pay close attention to what's happening in each other's life and they feel emotionally connected.

Maria Sikoutris Di Iorio's Groups

Relationship Issues

We're not always conscious of our attraction to someone. It often acts like a magnet, drawing us together as if by external force. Feelings of attraction are both physical and psychological, and they arise from deep unconscious sources we can't directly control. Sexual relationships begin with attraction, some of them lead to attachment, and many of them generate affection. But this sequence doesn't happen automatically. Being able to tell the difference between attraction and affection is important. We will address issues of attachment,attraction and "falling in love".

Endometriosis Support Group

Endometriosis is a common gynecological condition particularly among women of childbearing age, affecting an estimated 10 to 20 percent of American women (or about 5 million women) in this age group. Endometriosis can be a debilitating disease for some women who experience ongoing pain. It is also a factor in infertility, with about 25 percent of women with endometriosis experiencing difficulty in conceiving a child. Our support group offers emotional and practical support as well as an exchange of information. It is a place where people can share medical information and get confirmation that their feelings are "normal". May 26@6pm
