About  Gwen Ginski

Let’s face it, relationships today are hard. There are so many confusing messages and expectations. We come into our marriages wishing and hoping for the best, with few relationship skills. Ideally, life progresses smoothly and we grow and learn through our issues together. However, while that is a beautiful ideal, life undoubtedly will throw some curve balls at us leaving us unprepared, dissatisfied, frustrated and wondering if we even love each other anymore or even what drew us together in the first place.  Many couples try to sort through these differences and challenges along the way on their own, but often find that they only become locked into power struggles, emotionally escalating dynamics, or living disconnected and dissatisfying lives. Often times, a couple will struggle for 5 or 6 years, before even thinking about seeking marriage counseling.   

Married life will always challenge us to grow and become our best selves. We can feel very satisfied in our relationships, even after years of dissatisfaction. By investing in couples counseling, you can learn ways to capture that spark again that brought the two of you together. You can learn to communicate your feelings, thoughts and inner desires with your partner and in the process feel closer and more loving towards each other. You will learn ways to identify destructive conflict patterns and to interrupt these towards a resolution of problems or to obtain the affection, attention and love you need and deserve.  Over my 13 years in practice as a therapist in the Plainfield, IL and Chicago area,  I have worked with many couples seeking relationship counseling who want to build a healthy relationship and have seen amazing things with the couples I work with. My heart always warms when I see a couples learn new ways to interact and heal through infidelity, betrayals, loss, life transitions, etc.  

Also, sometimes, it is not a good idea to stay married where there is ongoing addiction, abuse and infidelity that ultimately ends up damaging both of you and everyone around you.  I can help you decide if you should stay together or part ways. I can help you understand what happened, find forgiveness, identify goals and values that can help you separate as working partners to raise your children, manage your business, or just separate amicably.

From my background and training, I use Attachment Theory, Family Systems, Psychodynamic, Insight-Oriented and Narrative Therapies. I  have received additional training in Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy, the Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies.   I have helped couples with parenting, cultural issues, mental and physical health issues, financial issues, sexual problems, trauma, loss and phase of life issues. 

I invite you to reach out to start your amazing journey of restoring hope and finding healing and happiness. All you have to do is reach out and be committed to working.  The first step is the hardest!
