Life is all about relationships. We shape them,
and they shape us. They touch us to our very core!
But, finding a well-qualified marriage or
relationship counselor - especially one who is 'marriage friendly' when your
relationship is suffering! - is very difficult. Many therapists and
counselors lack specialized training and experience in working with couples,
and as a result, couples often experience marriage therapy as lukewarm in
supporting life-long commitment.
Dr. Schuster is a NY Licensed Marriage &
Family Therapist, as well as a NY at the highest 'R' experience level. She is
also a member of The Marriage Friendly Therapists, a highly trained and
credentialed organization dedicated to helping relationships succeed. Her
work focuses on enriching lives by building connections to others. Her approach is
practical and direct; it focuses on improving skills in communication and
helping to identify and resolve underlying issues.Divorce, children, remarriage and
stepfamilies are special areas of interest. Dr. Schuster and the Solution
Center professionals provide support to the whole family at these critical
periods of transition.
