Welcome! I’m Denise Wade, Ph.D., a recognized Couples Coach, Marriage Educator, and Relationship Expert for Sweet Harmony, YourTango.com and PartnersinLife.com. Relationships don’t come with an operating manual; however there are formulas that can be taught. Allow me to help you restore harmony, increase intimacy, create passion, and become your partner’s best friend using simple Relational Principles. You don’t need therapy, you just need Relational Principles.
My comfortable alternative to marriage counseling is focused on helping you gain greater self awareness, uncover your specific emotional and sexual needs, and understand the specific and often frustrating differences and needs of your partner. I will gently teach you relationship skills through effective exercises, individually or as a couple, to help you get your needs met.
I can help you deepen trust, align priorities, and avoid the “blind spots” by outlining the couple’s agreements ahead of time. I also guide couples through second marriages, to help you navigate the difficult and sensitive issues of blended families. I understand firsthand the pain of divorce and its devastating effects, especially on children.
I’ve combined my extensive research in the psychology of relationships with workshop facilitation and my own personal experience to help you through those nagging issues around in-laws, sex, emotional affairs, communication, religion, money, children, unmet emotional needs, negligence, anger, unresolved issues, nonnegotiable requirements, divorce, ex partners, remarriage, dating, and difficult partners.
Or if you prefer, I can just listen. Sometimes we just need a safe, comfortable support system, a trusting ear.
All sessions are done by phone from the privacy and comfort of your own home or office with strong backup support by email. Or, if you prefer complete anonymity, we can work strictly through email. Your privacy is my priority. If you’re ready to get started, I’m just a phone call away at (215) 913-7997.
I invite you to contact me with any questions you may have. I’m here for you and am always ready to listen.
I live in the Philadelphia area and New York City, but work with couples all over the world. I live what I teach.
