Malka Shaw, LCSW, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Newark, NJ


Couples counseling helps you invest wisely in yourself, in your partner, and in your relationship.
I can help both of you develop clarity on the “deposits” your partner needs – to keep your relationship not only solvent but to help it flourish.
Every couple is different. Together, we’ll explore what you can do, as partners, to keep each other feeling secure – well taken care of, and satisfied.
You and your partner will learn ways to give to each other and build up your emotional intimacy. That feeling of closeness – of being truly understood and cared for by your partner – is the glue that will hold your relationship together for the long term.
Counseling guides you back to a place where you can build a wealth of strong emotional connection.
Marriage today is complicated, multifaceted.
You have to manage the business part – your finances, your home, your kids.
But you also have to keep up with the relationships – to integrate both your extended families and organize your social activity calendars and obligations. It’s difficult.
At its core, you need a solid friendship…
And you also need a sense of romance, fun, and laughter…
ou need alternative solutions that work.
You don’t need to continue to run around the same circles that have left both of you drained, frustrated, and bitter.
Not every disagreement needs to turn into a fight, and I can show you how to work through them and emerge even stronger.
I’ll help both of you learn how to change your paradigm of thinking about your relationship, so you can be open to learning new communication skills and more effective at conflict resolution.
I’ll show you techniques and solutions that can help you rekindle the joy and excitement you once felt toward each other.
