My life’s mission is counseling couples and individuals to teach them how to be in healthy relationships.
We have never been taught what it means to be in a healthy relationship. I feel it is the great failing of our educational system that there are no courses in high school or college to teach us what makes a good relationship and how to actually accomplish this very important life-skill. Good marital counseling teaches individuals and couples about emotional intimacy.
Couples counseling is perhaps the most important decision you will make for you, your partner, and your children.
Going into marriage counseling is perhaps one of the most important decisions a couple can make. Your choice of counselors could lead to things moving in a positive direction, or not. Dr. Steinberg offers you information about his marriage counseling practice in Philadelphia, including articles he has written about relationships and counseling. Take some time to read this site and educate yourself about Dr. Steinberg’s counseling philosophy and approach. Feel free to pick up the phone and contact us at any time to ask questions about counseling or get started.
I can help you even if your partner isn’t ready to enter therapy or counseling
If you are unhappy in your relationship, and your partner doesn’t want to seek out help because they are scared or ashamed to be in counseing, individual counseling can be enough to transform your relationship. Oftentimes a couple will be transformed when just one of the duo does the work. I believe that if you teach an individual the principles for being in relationship with oneself, they will then transform their partner’s ability to be intimate.
Committed relationships require tender loving care and attention.
A relationship is like a garden. Tend it with love and attention and it will return the love with beauty and natural healthy food. If you are not getting your needs met, whether they be for sex or for emotional intimacy, there will be problems that will not go away without communication. Learning how to communicate your needs and feelings is crucial for your success in the relationship.
