A Quick Word from Our Founder

Dr. Sara Schwarzbaum, Ed.D, LMFT, LCPC

Relationship counseling is not something you want to put off. Find a professional who can provide expert help for relationships. Someone who specializes in couples counseling and has experience with the complexities of relationships. Like any other professional service, a trained expert is worth the investment.

Most people who work at their relationships make it, but studies show couples wait too long to get help. Couples Counseling Associates can help you learn critical relationship skills to get back on track: reconciliation, communication, and connectedness.

Testimonials About Couples Counseling in Chicago


We did a lot of research looking for a practice that specializes in couples work only. It gave us comfort to know we were in the hands of a specialist. And we were glad we did.

We are very glad we had your guidance. We are doing very well. We have come a long way since we first went to see [our therapist]. We wanted to drop you a line to say: Thanks!

Our counselor is a dedicated professional, carefully preparing for each client meeting. She is highly intelligent, is an excellent listener and picks up on non verbal cues. She skillfully guides her clients to make positive behavioral changes. I have worked with several therapists and our counselor was the first to help me make genuine changes. Our relationship has improved significantly as a result of our work with her.

Don't worry, we only send a few per year.
