About Dr. Michael Mongno

Specializing as a Marriage and Couples Counselor

My “real change in real time” approach includes insightful counseling for best beginnings and long term happiness. By applying deep, experiential insight to all situations and circumstances I create the right conditions for partners in a relationship to feel heard, understood, and gotten at the deepest levels.

Over the years I’ve successfully guided partnered individuals who are experiencing anxiety, confusion, and disconnection. From those in the straits of relationship disaster to those who anxiously walk on eggshells to avoid conflict, I teach authentic communication which creates the kind of understanding and empathy which frequently was never thought possible. From this new place a more genuine and loving relationship can occur, one that has greater respect and caring for the beloved other.

Working in therapy with me brings you into the self-awareness of how you’re engaging with your partner in the present moment, i.e. is it critical, harsh and judging OR accepting, empathetic and loving. If it’s not the latter, I endeavor to help each partner take responsibility for their own actions for what’s being created. This reduces blame and victimhood (i.e. it’s all his or her fault) and increases personal ownership in transforming the dynamic that had been created. This results in the elimination of emotionally destructive cycles which then opens the possibility for more mutuality and feelings of acceptance in being oneself.

Overall my approach develops the capacity for healthy emotional attachment while at the same time creating greater self-differentiation. This means being able to be close to your partner without sacrificing or losing valuable parts of yourself in the process. Our work together in couples therapy identifies areas of enmeshment that dilute passion so that when healed create greater desire and emotional connectedness for deeper, fuller intimacy.
