About Dr. Stephen Sperber

Specializing in Couples and Marriage Counseling: My goal is to Help you Repair and Rebuild your Relationship.

Satisfying, intimate and happy relationships ought to be what committed relationships are all about. For most of us, that’s what we intended when we made our commitment to one another. Yet, it has become so easy to forget that our love and relationship is at the core of what’s important in our lives. All too often life’s demands and stresses get in the way.

Sadly, it’s not unusual for one or both partners in a marriage or relationship to feel resentful, misunderstood, unappreciated and/or disconnected. This often leads to a sense of loneliness, frustration or anger. If you or your partner suffers from any of these feelings, you are not alone. I work with couples to address issues surrounding:

  • Communication and Problem Solving Skills
  • An Affair
  • Intimacy & Sexual Issues
  • Anger Management
  • Addiction within the Relationship or Family
  • Grief & Loss
  • Parenting/Step-parenting
  • Depression & Anxiety
  • Pre-marital Counseling

Dr. Sperber has helped us overcome difficult circumstances in our marriage. He has taught us effective communication skills and provided us with tools to overcome and resolve our conflicts. We highly recommend him as a therapist. Great facilitator, impartial, objective and has a good sense of humor…………….Maxine

My Training, Approach, and Experience as a Marriage Therapist:

  • Brief/Solution Focused
  • Cognitive-Behavioral
  • Eclectic (Many therapies)
  • Gestalt
  • Psychodynamic

I help you identify and develop your strengths and introduce and teach communication and problem solving skills that enable you to rediscover the joy and satisfaction in being together. You will learn and practice kind and compassionate ways of identifying and processing problem situations. Learning skills for dealing with relational problems can be both rewarding and sustainable.

I’ve been working with couples for more than 30 years and am skilled in the practice of couples work. Know that I am both caring and concerned, that I do not attach blame to either partner, but work to help you repair damaged aspects of your relationship.

I look forward to working with you. Please email me by using the contact form above.
