A good and loving relationship between spouses or partners can empower people to achieve more, experience more, and contribute more. A difficult relationship has the opposite effect leaving people feeling powerless, even hopeless.
But life isn't so simple, which is why working with a professional is so important.
People who struggle often view the other spouse or partner as the primary cause of their upset.
Whether individuals come to see Dr. Keenan by themselves or with their significant other, Dr. Keenan's focus is identifying and clarifying the presenting concern. And the presenting concern is, oftentimes, only a glimmer of the other issues involved.
Specific strategies are created to help people not only interpret more accurately what is occurring, but how to strategically navigate these variables to produce healthier and progressively more positive interactional outcomes.
Dr. Keenan helps patients in marriage/relationship distress to become stronger and more deliberate in their interactions with others independent of what others are doing.
True change and enhancement of relationships is generated from the inside out, rather than focusing exclusively on others changing so that a patient can feel comfortable.
Dr. Keenan understands that each relationship issue is different from any other. He, therefore, structures an individual plan depending upon the presenting concern.
