Serving couples in New York City and New Jersey

Hi, I'm Ari!

As a kidney donor, rabbi, researcher, and marriage expert, my entire approach to couples begins with true compassion, empathy and caring. Marriage should be a source of friendship, love and support - not frustration! That is why I use my extensive training and expertise to help lift couples from their pain. While there are many wonderful therapists that also see couples, for me, relationships are my passion, and it is all that I focus on. I have studied, taught, and published new research in this field and hold Level-3 certification in the world-renowned Gottman Method. I welcome the opportunity to get to know you and help improve your relationship.

When a marriage reaches a point where every conversation seems to turn into a fight and there is more frustration than joy, the relationship may be at risk for divorce. There is a critical window of time for a couple to begin effective marital counseling that can reverse the damage and begin to rebuild the love, intimacy, respect and care that a happy and healthy marriage is built upon.

Dr. Ari Sytner uses the research-based approach of Dr. John Gottman to slice through the chronic issues that have been plaguing the marriage and facilitate a comfortable pathway toward improving the relationship. Using a strictly scientific method, every couple receives a state-of-the-art assessment, bio-feedback, and comprehensive treatment plan that maximizes the likelihood of rebuilding the relationship.


Research has found that the average couple struggles for 6 years before reaching out for help. Please don't wait.
