By the time someone calls for marriage therapy, they often have agonized over the decision to go to therapy for months, sometimes years. Research indicates couples wait 6 years after a problem has set in before they seek help. It is important to discuss your questions and concerns about therapy with your potential therapist.

The answer to that question is ABSOLUTELY! Marriage and Family Therapists are trained to treat individuals, couples, and families. We are unique in our training because of our theoretical background.

Our relationships with family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors influence and create our individual experience.
