A message from
Dr. Sherman

Marriage is a partnership that affects everything across the lifespan. My passion is for working on a deeper level to help couples grow and transform themselves, both as individuals and as a couple, so as to benefit their whole lives. I’m delighted by couples who can embrace their differences and take responsibility to learn and grow. I get deep satisfaction when people are confronted by parts of themselves that surprise them, like defenses or old wounds, and they are able to release or heal them. It is beautiful when they recognize that they are replaying old unconscious patterns that they didn’t choose and recognize that they can practice doing things differently.

Feedback from my couples

We had done every other week sessions and it didn’t do anything.

We had done every other week sessions and it didn’t do anything. We had lots of road blocks, and no clue how to process moving forward.

We had never gone to an intensive. We had done every other week sessions and it didn’t do anything.

The fact that we could sit down for a block of time and face these issues without heading back to our chaotic lives made us choose Couples Therapy Inc. We hesitated considering the cost/investment. If it would be worth it.

Couldn’t have asked for a better therapist for us. We loved Dr. Paulette Sherman’s knowledge, quick responses, structure, easy to talk to, everything. We left with a clear plan of action and all parties being in agreement. I did not see that happening, and am beyond thrilled with our experience.

We found compromises on two major core issues, and have learned about how to communicate with each other moving forward so it is effective. We’ve discovered ways to help put ourselves first instead of getting lost in the mix of the day.

If a couple has larger core issues that they are struggling to resolve, and weekly therapy isn’t working, no question I would recommend Couples Therapy Inc.

Once we talked to her there was no hesitation

Once we talked to her there was no hesitation
We needed support with forgiveness, dealing with conflict, expressing my needs.

Our previous couple therapy was somewhat helpful, but not enough. We had tried everything else, an intensive weekend seemed like the last option and CTI seemed like the best solution for us. We wanted to make sure we connected with the therapist. Once we talked to her there was no hesitation.

Paulette Sherman really made me feel heard. She got me. That was extremely helpful. I felt very safe with her.

We do seem to be communicating better so far even though we continue to have challenges this past week.

We now have: 1. Insights into how our childhoods are affecting our relationship. 2. How to voice my needs in the relationship 3. Tools for soft start up.
