About Dr. Irina Banfi-Mare

Specializing as a Couples and Marriage Therapist

Couples often come for therapy when their relationship is in crisis. You likely want to save the relationship, but may wonder if the relationship is beyond repair. Generally, the emotional connection has deteriorated and the both of you have become caught in destructive patterns of communicating with each other. You may be trapped in the “blame game” of who is wrong and who is right, whose fault the problems are, and who is trying harder in the relationship. You may be desperately trying to reach your partner, while he or she has become distant and withdrawn. Or maybe you both have pulled away and communicate as cold yet polite roommates.

I work with Couples to Address and Overcome Issues Surrounding:

  • Affair(s)
  • Intimacy
  • Co-Parenting & Parent-Child Conflict
  • Grief & Loss
  • Depression & Anxiety
  • Difficult Life Transitions
  • Addiction
  • Feelings of:”They just don’t get me anymore..”
  • Financial Stress

When couples fight about money, sex, household chores, etc, the key issue is often related to questions such as “Can I count on you? Are you there for me? Do you really love me? Can I trust you? Will you be there when I need you?” You may be feeling unloved, unappreciated, abandoned, inadequate, or like a failure in your relationship. Getting an understanding of these underlying questions and fears and being able to communicate them to each other in a way that can be heard is an essential piece of couples work.

The goal of couples therapy is to build on essential elements for a strong and healthy relationship

While conflict is often unpleasant, the goal is not about avoiding conflict, but rather learning how to handle it is to allow for repair and re-establishment of closeness, love, and security in the relationship; The following elements are key to a secure and loving bond in a relationship: knowing that you can reach your partner, that he or she will pay attention to you, will respond to and care about your feelings, and feeling confident that you are valued and a top priority to your partner.
