Exploring contentment, affection
As the Marriage Doctor ™, I have published and contributed to books, notably The 7 Stages of Marriage (Reader’s Digest, 2007). I have published professional books, articles, and publications. As a therapist, educator, professor, and author, I have been helping people love each other better for decades. I am dedicated to providing important and practical relationship advice through difficult journeys of loving for life. My approach to therapy is proactive and client-centered.
I offer a comprehensive and integrative approach in my work with individuals, couples and families. The primary focus of my clinical practice is working with couples at the “brink of divorce”. Often these complicated relationships involve sexual issues, anger management problems, addictions, unsatisfying personal and intimate lives and more!
I am known for my commitment to helping people develop loving and compassionate relationships with their partners and children.
Last but not least I have presented hundreds of workshops and programs in collaboration with community groups, at local and national conferences such as insecure attachment bonds, sexual trauma, unique applications of genograms (known as 'family trees'), and relationship enhancement.
Dr. Rita has specific goals to help individuals and couples:
A committed, loving, and compassionate relationship is an important key to maintaining an intimate and passionate partnership!
With a lifetime of experience,
Dr. Rita's goal is to help people love each other better!
