As a therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and have the life that you want. While we can’t change the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
Nothing is more important and comforting than feeling understood and safe. It’s important for you to feel comfortable with your choice of therapist.
I provide support in helping you to understand concerns that brought you to therapy. No problem is too big or too small to explore. I welcome all feelings. Together we can develop approaches to work on your concerns and self-doubts.
If you’re looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, life transition, or just want to move in a new direction in your life, therapy can help you to achieve your goals.
Please call 203-299-0478 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation today. I have experience in treating traditional and non-traditional families.
This Week on the “Relationships Matter” Talk Radio:
Advocacy for Changing Domestic Violence Law
Leigh Goodmark’s book, “A Troubled Marriage: Domestic Violence and the Legal System” challenges traditional ways domestic violence is understood by our society and its institutions. She sees WAVA (Women Against Violence Act, 1994) as a significant step forward in empowering women. However, although disappointed that WAVA did not pass in 2013, Dr. Goodmark urges that we see it as an opportunity to rethink how we might improve it. For example, we need to recognize that there is no “cookie cutter” solution for domestic violence. Each abused woman’s circumstances are different and in order to truly understand and help her, it is essential that we help empower her to do what is best for her. “The justice system is simply one tool, and not always the best tool, among the many available to respond to domestic violence. Those who want to eradicate woman abuse must channel their energy, creativity, and passion into constructing multiple pathways for women to live autonomous lives free of abuse”. (Goodmark, Leigh (2011-12-01). A Troubled Marriage: Domestic Violence and the Legal System (p. 198). NYU Press short. Kindle Edition)
Leigh Goodmark joined the Maryland Carey Law faculty in 2014 and teaches the Gender Violence Clinic, which she launched while a visiting professor here at the law school during the 2013-2014 academic year.
