I have been working in the mental health field since 1993. I obtained my Masters in Social Work from the University of Louisville in 1999. I have worked in outpatient mental health with individuals and couples and opened my private practice in 2008 where I work with individuals and couples on parentings issues, communication problems, blended family issues, phase of life problems, affairs, and infertility. Usually most couples want to improve their communication so I usually give them a personality test and the love language test so they can better understand their partner's needs and uniqueness. We usually process ways couples relate, respect issues, parenting roles, interactions with extended family members, previous traumas and if those traumas are impacting their present relationship with their partner, ways they can connect emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually (if needed), recreationally, what is working in their marriage/relationship, what needs to be tweaked, previous hurts and grievances, ways to function better emotionally, family roles such as who does what and level of contentment in those roles, financial health, and how much time a couple spends with each other.
