Relationship Success Counseling

A note from Robert Fontana:

I know from my own experience and the experience of my clients that it is through our relationships, especially those with a spouse, children, extended family, and good friends, that we experience our greatest joys and deepest sorrows.  Sometimes when spouses and family members are in conflict, they are too close to the problem to solve it themselves.  As your marriage and family therapist I can help you:

  1. Stop the negative interaction;
  2. Listen to one another for understanding;
  3. Build more effective communication skills;
  4. Restore love and friendship, and
  5. Build a new way of being together as a couple and family.

Not all relationships can or should succeed, but most relationships can and ought to succeed.  Even relationships that have experienced great trauma, such as an affair or a struggle with addiction, can be turned around.  

I will meet with any individual, couple, and/or family  married or single, "straight" or "gay," and from any faith tradition or no faith affiliation  who is seeking help to improve their relationships. 

You can succeed in love, marriage, and family, and I would like to help you do so.
