Marriage Counseling and Therapy

We are not born whole…we become whole through a deep authentic relationship with another human being.

Marriage is the loftiest commitment that a human being is capable of.  Because of its great potential for closeness and intimacy, a marriage is infinitely precious and yet, ​sometimes the source of great pain. Using techniques that are supported by extensive research Rabbi Bloom can help you ​begin to treat old wounds, encounter one another and ​create the deep human connection that is the soul of every marriage.

The Gottman Method

The Gottman Method is a research based approach to couples therapy that includes a thorough assessment of the couple relationship with the goals of disarming conflicting verbal communication and increasing intimacy, respect, and affection. 

Rabbi Bloom often utilizes the Gottman Method in helping couples manage conflict, create shared meaning and make their life dreams come true.

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy is a research supported approach to couples therapy that is based upon the scientific principles of adult attachment. When using this model, Rabbi Bloom helps couples initiate different patterns of interaction, a new attatchment “dance” if you will, with the ultimate goal of creating a secure, loving bond.

IMAGO Therapy

Imago Relationship Therapy (IRT) looks to transform any conflict between couples into opportunities for healing and growth.

The Imago model suggests that there is frequently a connection between frustrations in marriage and early childhood experiences. For example, individuals that were frequently criticized as a child will likely be highly sensitive to their partner’s criticism. Similarly, childhood feelings of abandonment or neglect will often surface in the course of a marriage.

These insistent core issues can overshadow all that is good in a relationship and cause one to question whether he or she has married the right person.

As a therapist trained in IRT, Rabbi Bloom helps couples understand each others childhood wounds and empathize with their feelings.  This powerful experience enables them to move away from reacting and blaming and begin the journey of creating a lifelong, deep, intimate connection.
