Marriage Counseling

I co-authored a book entitled The Second Wives Club: Secrets for Becoming Lovers for Life. A major theme of the book is that it is more difficult to work on a marriage than to get a divorce. I teach couples how to restore and nurture love and intimacy in their relationships. Step-by-step, this is accomplished by really learning how to communicate (Communication Skills), and by becoming “special” to one another.

As a marriage counselor, I can be a pivotal force in helping you resolve relationship issues. I am objective, easy-to-talk-to, and unbiased. The beautifully furnished parlor-office provides the private, comfortable environment needed.

It might be a mid-life crisis, an unfaithful spouse, or perhaps feeling that you’ve grown apart. I will be the catalyst in getting you on the right track so that you won’t be overwhelmed by the problems of life.

Couples Counseling

Many of the important ingredients in a successful couples relationship are shared by those who are married. For example, keep in mind the "LOVERS" concept of a good relationship:
Loyalty
Openness
Value of Trust
Empathy
Respect
Stability of Commitment

"LOVERS" are the essentials - the foundation of a marriage. The absence of any one of them can lead to serious relationship issues. As an empathetic female couples/marriage counselor, I will gently assist you and your mate in working toward being "LOVERS" every day. Thus, you will ensure the permanence of your relationship as you build a strong foundation for yourselves.

Pre-marital counseling is a very effective way to sort out any possible problems before having a legal commitment or moving in together. Such counseling can make a couple aware of flaws in the relationship and iron them out prior to them becoming major problems. As a psychologist, I am able to be objective and offer you a comfortable way to explore and resolve any impediments to your relationship.
