Couples/Marriage Therapy

Life is easier
your relationship
doesn’t hurt

Whether you’ve just started dating or have been married for a zillion years, couples work can be the thing you need to ‘tweak’ your relationship


Marriage Therapist Chelsea, Flatiron, Union Square

Dr. Cynthia Pizzulli has worked with married and non-married couples for more than 30 years. Located on Long Island and in NYC (Chelsea, Flatiron, Union Square), she is dedicated to encouraging couples to dive into their relationships and make them more fulfilling and endure the test of time. 

A person cannot be truly happy if their marriage/relationship isn’t working. If you’re fighting constantly and being misunderstood or simply feel like you’re not getting what you need from your partner on a regular basis, your marriage needs help.

Every couple that walks into my NYC (Chelsea, Flatiron, Union Square) and Long Island office is here for the same reason:  Avoidance and denial. Partners have known there’s a problem in their marriage for a while but simply hope things will work out on their own. Or they convince themselves they can fix the relationship issues themselves. The longer couples avoid and deny, the worse things get. And when they get worse, couples feel hopeless – They start thinking the problems are unfixable. They say “what’s the point of doing anything to fix our marriage if nothing’s going to help anyway”. But there IS something that helps and that is couples/marriage therapy.

When you have a problem with the plumbing in your apartment you call a plumber. Power isn’t working? You call an electrician. Problems with your marriage/relationship – Well you get what I’m saying. It makes perfect sense to contact a marriage/relationship specialist when you are having marriage/relationship problems. Yet couples resist it. 

It is true that the idea of discussing your private, extremely personal issues with someone can be daunting. Couples therapy isn’t entirely a walk in the park:  You have to dig-in to everything from sexual preferences to unresolved attachment issues. In my NYC (Chelsea, Flatiron, Union Square) and Long Island practice I collaborate with couples to define the causes of negative feelings like resentment and rejection. Couples in need of marriage/relationship counseling are dealing with diverse issues including infidelity, sexual problems and parenting difficulties. Couples also grapple with the constant arguing caused by disconnection and a lack of empathy.

At the end of the day, a solid marriage is the anchor that keeps you afloat when your individual struggles threaten to drown you. With couples therapy/marriage therapy you are strengthening that which gives you serenity, companionship and love – And I can’t think of anything more important for happiness in life than that.
