The Process

In NYC Manhattan my couples counseling and relationship therapy derives from both my dissertation studies and from a decades-long reservoir of life experience, self-reflection. and extended personal growth work.

What I offer to couples in counseling is what I've successfully practiced and taught throughout my life and utilized in helping hundreds of couples living in the city and now virtually beyond. The synthesis of my life's work, along with my extensive training in multiple therapeutic modalities. enables me to bring insightful and emotionally corrective experiences to a wide range of issues that clients bring into treatment.

The result is greater cognitive understanding and emotional self awareness. Present Centered Therapies also deeply cultivates for individuals and couples an enhanced ability to live more freely and from a larger and more vital frame of existence. Thus they experience a greater quality of life and deeper fulfillment on many levels.

Couples Relationship Counseling Therapy in Manhattan - Insightful, Effective, Transformative

Relationship therapy is transformative, real-time counseling for married couples, partners, those newly coupled or dating. It starts with the insightful examination of the relationship we have with ourselves, and how this transfers to all relationships, most significantly with our partners. Our early family upbringing creates the template for how we feel about ourselves, manage our emotions, and which shapes us in very powerful ways. It is applicable to all races, cultures and gender orientations and is extremely useful in examining the various dynamics that all couples start with. 

In relationship counseling, we discover that current emotional issues derive from deficiencies in our capacity to create meaningful connections with others. Many of us have erroneous beliefs that we are incomplete and that only another person will complete us or make us happy.Our work together helps you to truly discover just who "you are" and "how you are being" with others, and how changes within would improve your relationships. Letting go of the persona designed to cope in the world is very powerful and freeing. As your innate wholeness is revealed, this transformational experience creates powerful changes within yourself and in every area of your life. You will come to know that simply "being you" is more than enough, as you bring all of yourself to others with an ease and vitality to live a more genuine and fulfilling life.

Couples Clients Say

"Thank you so much for your email! We are officially married. We literally couldn’t have done it without you. We will be forever grateful for all the support and guidance you showed us. You truly helped us grow as people and as a couple, and I know we will use the tools you taught us throughout our entire relationship."
—Christina and Dan, New York City


"We live in Manhattan. My partner and I went to Michael as partners who had just come together. Our relationship experienced growing pains early on. We were looking for a very good, experienced couples counselor, one who could guide us on a self-learning and communicating journey as individuals and as a couple. For Manhattan NYC couples relationship therapy, we found Michael online, and his midtown therapist office was very convenient.

In his counseling therapy Michael quickly observed that each of us had varied needs and spoke divergent languages due to our personality types being appreciably different.

He taught us what really are the best tools to enhance communication, understanding and acceptance of one another. Through his relationship work we were able to understand one another and listen to each other at a much more inclusive level than before.

I have taken part in other counselings for issues prior to this, so I'd say I have good experience in evaluating a therapist. Michael is the best - a very experienced couples therapist in Manhattan."
Chris H, New York City - 5-star Yelp Review


"Dr. Mongno is a fantastic therapist and, more than that, a blessing to us. When my wife and I first met him, we were going on 6 years together (not yet married) and had broken off an engagement at one point in our relationship. We loved each other, felt connected at the deepest levels, yet struggled with many issues. Our inability to maintain consistent peace was exhausting and taking its toll on us. We finally took action to seek couples therapy. I called Dr. Mongno and explained we needed to see him that day and he made time for us that evening. That one call changed our life. Today, we are married, we celebrated our first wedding anniversary last week, and we have a 2 month old baby boy."
