Do you ever feel like your life or your marriage is out of control and you are without hope?
Hi! I’m Rory Scher, and I am a marriage and family therapist, as well as an individual therapist. I offer insight to couples and individuals on how relationships, both past and present, are impacting current life circumstances. I offer practical and effective solutions to assist couples in resolving their relationship issues and for individuals in overcoming and working through difficult life situations or transitions. From the biggest issue to the smallest, I am here to help. I take the time to really listen to you so that together we can reach your goal of inner healing and a renewed enthusiasm for life.
My focus is on your needs and helping you to learn how to get those needs met. I will help you create goals for your therapy and walk with you through whatever difficult life situations you may be facing be it anxiety, depression, grief, interpersonal issues, or problems with self-esteem. I desire to help you find healing and growth. I will offer support, skills to better cope with the circumstances you are facing, more effective ways of communicating with your partner, encouragement, and the means to discover your inner strength. Many of my clients have reported that after just a few sessions they were better able to understand themselves and their circumstances while also gaining hope and practical means for change.
My goal is for you to have a more fulfilling life. It is my belief that no circumstance is beyond hope. Change can start today! I would love the opportunity to speak with you over the phone to answer any questions you may have or to schedule an appointment.
