I am the founder of the Relationship Center of Milwaukee, a group practice that focuses on providing couples with the skills, insights, and courage to develop themselves and their relationships. My 30-year experience as a psychologist and psychoanalyst has reinforced my belief that people heal, change, and grow in connection to others. Love relationships are simultaneously the greatest source of comfort and happiness in our lives, but also potentially the greatest source of intense stress and misery. Yet, we keep on trying. The thirst for good partnership is unquenchable.
Couples counseling is something that I am very passionate about. My sessions are collaborative and focused. I am not there just as a “witness” to your conflicts but give feedback and guide you in this work. I use research-based tools that have been proven to work to strengthen relationships.
Couples come to see me for premarital counseling, healing from betrayal and infidelity, and developing better communication and conflict management skills. If you are ready to work on your relationship, don’t let time or expense deter you from making a vital life decision. Couples therapy is an investment that can provide greater connectedness and intimacy.
