Worried about ending up with an LGBTQ-clueless couples therapist? Don't be discouraged. I'm that rare unicorn offering couples therapy that's not just for straight couples. Know that it IS possible to get quality, sensitive, and affirming relationship help. So let's talk love, sex, conflict, and communication. You know...the essential stuff that comes after those first woozy blushes of passion have passed. Because after the honeymoon of love, who knew that you'd take off those starry-eyed sunglasses and look around to find yourself surrounded by a big old mismatched pile of emotional baggage?

But I can help. Weird fact about me: in my past professional life, I was an insurance claims adjuster for disaster damaged properties. And there's one thing I learned: if you want to be built to last, you've got to have a rock-solid foundation.

As a specialist in the acclaimed Gottman Method of Couples Therapy, I can offer you an arsenal of practical tools and strategies for building a solid relationship house that's capable of standing strong when life gets bumpy. Call me today and let's get to work.

Dr. Bruhin is the very best choice for anyone seeking support around addiction. He is extremely supportive, non-judgmental, present, and meets the client where ever they are at in their recovery process. I couldn't speak more highly of his skills.
