Happiness cannot be pursued; it must ensue.

Marital conflict is a significant source of environmental stress for children. Witnessing such conflict may harm their stress response systems, affecting their mental and intellectual development. Research findings suggest that stress from marital conflict can hinder children’s development of cognitive ability.

Marriage therapy is not just for married couples. David will help you if you are in any relationship that you find challenging. You may live with your partner, have only started dating recently or perhaps you are going through a separation. In each case, marriage therapy will give you the tools and skills you need to restore harmony in your life.
