Specialties

My therapy practice in Wichita Falls focuses on relationship counseling. In general, this falls into three main categories:

Couples Counseling/Couples Therapy
Couples Counseling for One
Healthy Separation and/or Divorce Counseling

Now, this might sound, at first, as if I only do couples therapy.  I am trained as a psychologist. I do work with couples, however, I also do relationship counseling with individuals who are pondering or struggling with their history of relationships.  Family therapy is also one of my specialties. Any two people who need help with their relationship can benefit from the help of a therapist.  This can include father and son, mother and daughter, siblings and friendsI work with adult individuals and couples who are struggling with a variety of relationship issues.

Some common issues that lead people to seek my help with relationship counseling include

  • Problems communicating with a partner
  • Disagreements about how to manage finances
  • Conflicts over how often to have sex
  • A lack of emotional and/or sexual intimacy
  • Disputes about how to divide household responsibilities
  • Dealing with intrusive ex’s and/or relatives
  • Disagreements about how to parent children
  • Blending families after re-marriage
  • Infidelity
  • Dealing with a controlling or jealous partner
  • Fear of abandonment
  • Healing after a relationship has ended

This is by no means a complete list. If you are struggling with a different relationship issue than those mentioned, know that there is a good chance that I have deep expertise with your particular problem.

Many people who have never done any kind of counseling can be fearful of it, or think that it isn’t really needed unless there is a severe mental or emotional problem.  However, seeing a psychotherapist can be tremendously helpful for almost everyone. Ultimately, everything we do puts us in a relationship.

We have relationships at work, with friends, with family, even with our sports, spiritual and hobby communities.  If you’re able to have deep and fulfilling relationships based on trust and respect, then every area of your life will flourish.  If you struggle with developing healthy relationships, then nearly every aspect of your life will be negatively affected.

If you live in or near Wichita Falls and need relationship counseling, I can help you. Wichita Falls has been my home for many years, and I’ll be here if and when you need help, so give me a call. I realize that there are many therapists to choose from, so talking on the phone will give us both a chance to see if we’re a match.

I look forward to hearing from you.
