My Approach to Helping
Is there too much fighting or distance in your relationship? Too little love and partnership? I specialize in helping couples create loving, healthy relationships. My personalized approach with each couple is based on the new science of love and relationships. Couples react to each other emotionally when their needs are unfulfilled, or when they feel hurt by each other. Together, with sensitivity and compassion, we can understand distressing relationship patterns - and create new, loving connections.
Our weekend Connections program of marriage retreats and couples therapy intensives facilitates the fast track to healing with a new level of understanding, compassion, appreciation, and effective relationship skills. Individually designed for each couple and their unique circumstances.
I also specialize in helping men find success and happiness in life. Many men struggle with relationships, careers, and other aspects of life. Sometimes it takes a man to truly understand what it's like to be a man today in a world full of competing demands. I've learned a great deal from the hundreds of men I've worked with. My personal style is down to earth and genuine. It's a collaborative approach based in the belief that every man has a true self - with internal strength, wisdom, and masculine sensitivity and values. In my men's groups and individual counseling, the goal is to liberate our true selves from confusion, shame, anger and self-doubt.
The LATE Men
The LATE Men are adult men who function as Lost, Angry Teenagers. They are late to develop, and late to show up as confident, loving, responsible adults. I specialize in working with this group of men. For more information about The LATE Men, please see my blog post in this web site.
Our practice, the Relationship Center of South Florida, also includes several counselors and therapists who help women with relationship problems, parenting issues, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and other concerns. We offer women's therapy groups, and supportive, empathetic individual counseling for women of all ages.
