We humans seem, for the most part, to be inclined to form relationships. As babies, we bond with our caretakers. As adults, we learn how to balance our dependency on others with our individual needs for achievement and creativity. It is critical to our well-being, that we nurture and maintain fulfilling relationships. Occasionally, however, we find that our close relationships are so filled with conflict and strife that they cause us more stress than they solve. Frequently, a professional can be helpful and getting individuals to come to an understanding that is satisfactory to all. I have skills in working with families, couples and other kinds of groups. Please feel free to contact me, should you find your relationship in need of help.
Dr. Quackenbush often practices co-therapy with couples. Co-therapy simply means that two therapists are present during the meetings. This can have obvious advantages in that sometimes it can be difficult for one therapist to track on what both members of a couple are saying/doing. Two people allows for one person to take notes and observe while the other is more involved in administering therapy. Dr. Quackenbush utilizes psychologists-in-training to make this happen at no additional cost to you. Please feel free to email Dr. Quackenbush if you have questions or concerns about co-therapy.
