Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
How would you respond if your partner says, "I love you, but I'm not in love with you anymore"? Hi, I'm Don Wallach, a therapist who works with couples and individuals, helping to improve their relationships and their lives. I have been successfully guiding struggling couples to improve and repair their marriage for over 14 years. I help couples create a marriage where each partner loves, respects and listens to the other. It may be difficult to imagine, but for those who do the work of couples counseling, real change is possible. Issues that come up in couples therapy may include anger management, sexual problems, money issues, past hurts that never got resolved, affairs, anxiety and depression issues, communication skills, avoiding talking about the issues, too much bickering, alcohol and substance issues, and relationship with family and in-laws. The process of therapy is intimate and emotional. Having a good fit with your therapist is essential. One of the best ways to know if you have a good fit, is to sit with the therapist in a session and find out for yourself if you feel understood and helped.” I help others to find satisfying solutions to life's sometimes difficult problems. I do this through asking the right questions, offering support and understanding when faced with painful or difficult situations, and encouraging new directions and approaches. There are certain skills that I bring that increase the effectiveness of therapy. These include empathy and respect for those with whom I work, a developing understanding of what the other is struggling with and working through, and a sense of humor to help bring perspective and warmth. I have been working with individuals, couples and families for over 14 years. Please call me in Sonoma County at (707) 583-2305 and in Marin County at (415) 339-7890.
