Dorothy A Kruse is not currently accepting new clients.
I am currently not taking new clients. Are you feeling emotions that are difficult to handle; issues surfacing that you're ready to take a look at? Feeling stressed, anxious or depressed? Possibly your relationships are strained or unsatisfying. Maybe you're struggling with parenting a teenager, or you are a teenager wanting someone to listen? These are all areas of interest to me. I have worked with individuals, couples for over 22 years and am still amazed that while therapy is often not easy, it is truly worth the effort for most people. I have a calm, supportive, interactive style and welcome working with you.
I am currently not taking new clients. When I have availability I work with couples, focusing on specific communication skills and on complementing differences in the relationship. I also work with teens, and with individuals who have issues of grief and loss, career transition, anxiety, sexual abuse, and trauma.
I have an extensive background working in the public schools with teens and with families of diverse cultural, ethnic, and language backgrounds.
