WELCOME AND LET'S BEGIN

Relationship Care With Terri

For over a decade, I have provided relationship counsel to hundreds of New Jersey individuals and couples with myriad concerns and struggles to restore their love for one another. As a result, I've helped conflict, tension, and disconnect melt away -  beginning with the first session.

Over the years, I have developed a unique approach to restoring relationships in pain. Occasionally, couples come to me with their relationship in tatters, hanging by a thread and on life support. Yet, I've helped many of those relationships turn around and heal.

For these reasons, I have become New Jersey's most trusted relationship care and restoration source. My entire private practice is exclusively devoted to couples care and affair recovery. If you've come here in relationship pain,  I can help. So reach out, and let's get started. There's no need to suffer. Help is just a click away.

Couple Counseling

FOR RELATIONSHIP REPAIR

COUPLE COUNSELING AND AFFAIR RECOVERY WITH OPEN DOOR THERAPY IS COMPASSIONATE, PROFESSIONAL, AND COMPETENT. IT BEGINS WITH THE PREMISE THAT THE CORNERSTONE OF A SECURE RELATIONSHIP REQUIRES TRUST, SAFETY, AND EMOTIONAL RESPONSIVENESS.

WHEN THESE ELEMENTS ARE COMPROMISED, PAIN AND HEARTACHE FOLLOW. FINDING YOUR WAY BACK CAN FEEL DAUNTING.

WHETHER YOU HAVE A FEW ISSUES TO SORT OUT, ARE DEALING WITH THE TRAUMA OF INFIDELITY, OR HAVE A COMPLICATED RELATIONSHIP MATTER, YOU CAN TAKE COMFORT IN KNOWING THAT YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.

AS YOU AND YOUR SPOUSE OR PARTNER BEGIN TO RESTORE TRUST AND EMOTIONAL SAFETY, YOU WILL EACH FEEL FREE TO EXPRESS YOUR GENUINE EMOTIONS TO ONE ANOTHER. WHEN THAT HAPPENS, THE HEALING BEGINS.  I CAN HELP YOU GET THERE.

HERE TO HELP

Terri DiMatteo, LPC

You may be wondering, "Can she help?" After all, this is the most important question when choosing a therapist or seeking a marriage counselor. My success in helping couples repair their relationship begins with the notion that frames the romantic relationship as a sexual and emotional intimate bond. This entwinement of sexual and emotional intimacy bonds a romantic pair and helps assure fidelity.

A strongly bonded pair tends to find themselves in a reliable, stable, and functional relationship. These two strands work together, ensuring that both people in the relationship are loved and desired. Conversely, the relationship weakens when one or both areas of this intimate bond break down. Relationships in this weakened state leave both parties vulnerable, alone, and unloved. Feeling distant, alone, and unsure in your relationship is painful and negatively impacts other areas of your life. That's no way to live. Getting your relationship right means getting your life right.

And this is where I can help. My area of expertise is helping a distant, painful, confusing, and complicated relationship progress to one that is stable, satisfying and fulfilling.
I've developed a unique approach that helps couples restore their romantic bond with tools and techniques that are effective, time and cost-efficient, and that deliver results that endure.

There's no need to suffer the pain of a distant or conflicted relationship. This New Jersey marriage counselor is here and ready to help! So let's get started together.
