About Dr. Michael Zentman

Specializing as a Couples and Marriage Counselor for over 30 years

My firm belief is that most marriages can be healed and can grow if both partners are committed to improving their relationship. My focus is on the current obstacles to emotional intimacy and how past relationship experiences and personal histories interfere with it. In my work with couples, I am careful to listen closely to each partner as they share their perspectives on the relationship.

It is essential to create and maintain a safe atmosphere in sessions to allow for the emotional vulnerability necessary for change to occur. I am convinced that even in the most heated and volatile relationships both partners are desperate to make emotional contact with each other. My job is to help them unpack the patterns that interfere with this desire.

I work with couples experiencing:

  • The pain and disruption of an affair
  • Loss of intimacy
  • Co-Parenting & Family Conflict
  • Communication Difficulties
  • Depression & Anxiety
  • The risk of divorce
  • Difficult Life Transitions
  • Grief & Loss

I currently specialize in the following: Marital Therapy with highly distressed couples, with couples that have severe and persistent problems, with couples struggling through the impact of an affair and with couples facing the prospect of divorce; and Family Therapy with adults and their parents and with adult siblings.

My Training & Qualifications as a Marriage Counselor:

I have been a clinical psychologist for 38 years and teaching and supervising at the graduate and post-doctoral level for 31 years. After receiving my doctorate in Clinical Psychology, I completed five additional years of formal institute training in family and marital therapy. In addition to my practice, I am an Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of the Postgraduate Program in Couple Therapy at Adelphi University and on the faculty of the Marriage Therapy Program at The Training Institute for Mental Health Marital Therapy Program in Manhattan.

I am also available to meet with you in my Manhattan office located at 30 East 76th Street, 6th Floor.
