About Dr. Maria Shifrin

Every long-term relationship or marriage has bumps along the road. However, with some partnerships, the sense of loss, or anger or betrayal becomes the defining narrative of their relationship. My approach to couples therapy or couples counseling is geared towards expanding each partners’ understanding of the negative cycles they feel stuck in while building empathy for their partner’s experience. I believe that in marriage therapy, healing occurs when I can help a couple rebuild security and trust with one another. I truly understand how anxiety-provoking it can be to even try couples counseling, so my first priority to ensure that everyone feels safe and comfortable. 

I work with all couples to help them recognize and properly express the emotions that had been undermining their communication. We actively work together to build empathy, eliminate negative cycles, and redefine the way both partners experience their relationship. I focus on being transparent in my thinking and direct with my interventions so that our immediate goals are always front and center. 

Similar to how I conduct individual therapy, in marriage counseling or premarital counseling, I aim to create a safe space for each member of the couple to be vulnerable with each other. By helping both individual partners and the couple as a unit recognize and understand significant emotional roadblocks, they are then able to resolve conflict more effectively and eliminate blame and shame from the equation.
