Dr. Donald Strauss

About Me

I have had the opportunity to train at the Philadelphia Child Guidance Center which is one of the pioneer centers educating and training therapist in family therapy and in couples counseling. In addition I have trained at the Masters and Johnson Institute where sexual issues were treated within the context of the couples relationship rather than addressing problems in sexual functioning with the focus on the presenting symptoms.In my work I see the couple as members of a single unit that has become out of balance and no longer serves the members of the couple. My focus is always on the current interaction of the couple rather than events in the individuals or the couples history.Providing a safe environment for non conflict exploration of issues is an essential component of the work.I have had experience working with couples from many socioeconomic groups, faith group membership and racial and ethic groups. My practice includes working with same sex relationships as well as with more traditional couples.

I like how Dr Strauss can usually relate to our situation with a story of his own, so he is quite empathetic and he has a kind demeanour.

After working with Dr. Strauss for only a short while, he has helped us see the areas of our relationship that need focus. He gives us simple things to focus on and I feel our communication is already improving.

I was always hesitant about the proccess of therapy and its benefits. I was definitively proved wrong early into our sessions.
