My professional development has focused on how we have experienced or have developed cognitive / behavioral patterns that allow stress into our lives and especially how it is acted out in our physical / sexual relating to ourself and others. As such, marital / couples communication is one of my primary specialty areas.
Having myself been married for over 35 years I have greatly benefitted from learning from my "Better Half" and believe that life experience as well as professional experience allows a therapist to offer a kind of "library of workable choices" to help their clients in choosing to develop what is needed to best fit their individual or relationship goals. I expect my clients to work hard in and out of the therapy office. Insight is revealing, however behavior creates change.
