Areas of Specialization

Marriage Counseling: Marriage is a continual process of connecting with each other. When the connection is weak or stressed the relationship begins to feel unstable. This results in uncomfortable feelings of insecurity, loneliness and mistrust. These feelings are like gauges that alert us to the fragile status of the relationship. When we feel disconnected we make attempts to reconnect, but often these attempts result in conflict. Mr. Reichard helps couples successfully reconnect by teaching communication strategies, problem solving skills and facilitating the reconciliation process. Reconciliation begins when each person acknowledges their part in the relationship struggle, exercises a willingness to change and extends forgiveness. Sound to good to be true? Not really. When couples want to reconnect and are willing to do the work, good things happen.

Areas of Specialization

Parent-Teen Relationships: The teenage season is as much an adventure for parents as it is for teens. As teenagers are developing their own sense of identity and purpose they begin to form their own opinions and beliefs. Their will to pursue life and fulfill their dreams and passions becomes very apparent. But in the midst of this pursuit of independence and freedom, teenagers need connection with their parents more than ever. Mr. Reichard meets with teenagers individually and with the parent/s.  The individual meeting allows the teenager to unload their emotion and the meeting with the parents allows for the facilitation of parent-teen connection, which is crucial in helping the teenager reach their full potential.

Areas of Specialization

Family Functioning: The family is like any organization: when all it's members are doing well and doing their part the system operates smoothly. .  We all experience times of stress and instability, but situations become unmanageable when relationships break down due primarily to poor emotional management and a lack of conflict resolution skills. Mr. Reichard will meet with family members together and separately, depending on the specific issues presented in the sessions.  Family counseling provides an environment for constructive dialogue, safe expression of emotion and skills training to successfully navigate the stresses of life.
