Dr. Arlene G. Krieger is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Board Certified Clinical Sexologist. Why Relationship Therapy? You only need to want a difference in your life. All transitions, all events, in marriage and relationships, involve moving forward through life and the process of living together through thick and thin. Change forces us to discover sides of ourselves that are new or unknown. While it can be uncomfortable, it can also be an exciting new beginning. Relationship counseling is meant to offer a therapeutic environment in which these aspects of transition can lead toward a better understanding of yourself and your partner. Dr. Krieger offers Individual, Child and Adolescent, Family, Relationship and Marriage Counseling.
Sex Therapy focuses on sexual concerns or issues. It is a unique and specialized form of professional counseling designed to help women and men address their concerns about sexuality, sexual function, and sexual expression.
Individual counseling provides an opportunity for you to openly talk about your thoughts and feelings in a safe environment.
Marriage and Family Therapy
Family dynamics can often be challenging, whether you have a traditional or non-traditional family, we can help.
Child and Adolescent Counseling
Child and Adolescent counseling provides an opportunity for children and adolescents to openly talk about their thoughts and feelings in a safe environment.
About Dr. Krieger
Marriage & Family Therapist – Board Certified Clinical Sexologist
In a comfortable and safe environment, I provide a full range of psychotherapeutic services for individuals, couples and families. In addition to individual and marital and family therapy, I am a Board certified Clinical Sexologist specializing in areas including but not limited to intimacy, sexuality, and relationship.
In a Down to Earth Therapeutic Approach, Dr. Krieger is interactive in a post-modern talk therapy model. Trained at Nova Southeastern University in a Non-Pathologizing concept, there is No Freudian couch here. Meaning that YOU are not diagnosed with a DSM-V code as this concept involves the issues of life, your surrounding environment, and the problems that enter your life as a whole. This concept of therapy, versus, being blamed for being less than, a human being that can't handle or process your issues, Dr. Krieger helps you to help yourself. Highly skilled in this process over the past 21 years, Dr. Krieger works with the individuals or couples where they are encouraged to openly to openly express themselves. Trust is one of the cornerstones of a long-lasting relationship. If you feel like there are a few areas where you and our partner aren't quite on the same wavelength, perhaps it's time to explore why that is...
