Couples Therapy

Couples Therapy


In couple/relationship/parenting sessions Dr. Shafer examines life long habits developed in family systems that have been established as "rules" or passed on as a culture according to the genetic code or family history. Communication styles and habits created over time are explored to identify power and control issues and help relationships develop agreements that encourage styles of relating based on respect, adjusting to internal and external changes in the family system, compassion, and seeing things from the different perspectives of all persons involved.
