Paulette K. Trueblood, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Southport
Build & Repair Your Relationship - our goal is to save marriages. We take a brief therapy approach, because no one wants to spend years, or even months in therapy - nor need they. In practice for over 20 years, we have helped hundreds of individuals, couples and families achieve their relationship goals. We focus on solutions not problems, on the present not the past. I believe that marriage is a good thing - a superb tonic for mental health! Getting or staying married reduces symptoms of depression far more than being single or divorced, according to a noted study.
My techniques include anger management, conflict resolution, relationship communication training, assertiveness training, all of which can be factors in the complexities of marriage and family relationships. I also help clients manage: attention deficit; a strong-willed child; depression; anxiety; panic attacks; grief; loss; stress and intimacy issues.
