Konstantin Lukin, PhD
Relationship are complex and continuously evolving, and it is incredibly difficult to grow a relationship over time. I work with couples who are frustrated, angry, and hurt, for whom the stress of everyday interactions with their significant other makes it difficult to remember the love they feel for each other and the fond memories they share. My goal in couples therapy is to help the couples establish a new dynamic in which each partner feels accepted and supported and in which the couple is able to work together to solve problems and face challenges.
I am a clinical psychologist licensed to practice in NY and NJ, and I maintain a private practice in both Ridgewood and Hoboken, NJ (lukincenter.com). I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy, an empirically validated treatment designed specifically to address the dynamic between two individuals in a romantic relationship. I also have a great deal of experience with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, one of the most well researched therapeutic modalities used to treat depression, anxiety, and many other mental health issues. In addition to my work with couples, I specialize in men's issues.
Relationships are not easy, but therapy can help most couples change the patterns of interaction between partners to reestablish trust. I aim to support each individual, while providing a safe space to explore the relationship dynamic and build a foundation of support and acceptance.
