Marriage counseling in NYC

My wife and I are in need of some good recommendations for (probably shortish-term) marriage/couples counseling in NYC, with a focus on communication issues.

My wife and I are in need of marriage/couples counseling in NYC. We mostly get along OK on a day-to-day basis but have a lot of trouble discussing important, personal things; we are both often left feeling like we haven't really been heard or understood. This has always been a stumbling block for us, but in the past 1-2 years it has reached the point where we both feel something needs to be done about it. We have been married for four years and together for eight, if that matters.

So the focus would be on communication issues, although there are some other topics that may come up. We are willing to go for as long as it takes to work through the problems, but don't really envision this being a long-term thing, so someone who can do focused work on specific issues would be ideal.

Location-wise, Midtown Manhattan would be best, but south of Midtown, Downtown Brooklyn, or the Park Slope area could also work. Availability on evenings and/or weekends is essential. It would be great if they were in-network at Aetna, but we're willing to go out-of-network the rates are reasonable.
