Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.

The rest is a history of work, research, a system for counseling, books and years of appearing on TV and in the press. She was lauded and heralded as the discoverer and founder of new stepfamily movement.
How We Work:
Standard psychotherapy is based on feelings.
Our work is based on actionable information, and management.
Individuation is the cornerstone of traditional psychotherapy…the taking care of the self.
Our focus is the couple.
In standard psychotherapy the therapist does not give answers or solutions.
The answers must come from within the client
In our work, the therapist is an expert consultant
