"We finally know what's different about couples that stay happily together. It's not that they are better matched, better looking, more in love or more passionate. It's not that they have fewer differences or less to fight about.

"The difference between successful and unsuccessful couples is how they handle these differences. "The good news is that anyone can learn to do relationships better and smarter. It turns out you CAN learn how to get the feeling back . . . and keep love alive."

— Diane Sollee, smartmarriages.com


We are relational beings. Whether early in life or in adulthood, coming to know ourselves within the context of being known – genuinely understood, honored, and cared for – can make all the difference.

This skill-based couples class focuses on creating a long-term committed relationship based on respect, passion, pleasure and love. Workbook included.

Intensive Couples and/or Individual Work
As a senior therapist with an expertise in relationships and emotional healing, Dr. Ladd is available for intensive work with couples or individuals. Our defensive/protective behavior and attitude patterns reduce intimacy and damage trust in relationships.

In these sessions, Dr. Ladd introduces her conceptual framework for deep emotional healing and facilitates the emotional processing work that allows the relaxation of these old patterns. She assists in developing an ongoing strategy for application of the new information in your important relationships, including yourself.

Dr. Ladd recommends that these sessions be in conjunction with an ongoing therapeutic relationship with someone near the person’s home base.

What: 2-3 day sessions (2-3 hours, twice a day) with individuals or couples in my office or their home.

When: Scheduled by appointment only.
