About Dr. Timothy McCarthy


“My personal mission is to help couples make real change in their life, overcome self-limiting patterns, and achieve new relationship happiness. As both a PhD Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 38 years of experience I've developed a new approach to couples therapy that was highly influenced by the executive coaching work I've done with leaders in business. Clients often give feedback they appreciate I’m more involved and active compared to past therapy they’ve experienced, rather than just listening without much comment.”


After working with couples for over 28 years, Dr. McCarthy developed a new approach for marriage and couples counseling in 2010 in which he saw couples immediately begin to change more quickly and more dramatically than he had ever seen before in his practice. His Relationship Co-Coaching approach challenges many currently accepted beliefs about romantic relationships and what it takes to have a successful marriage such as “I shouldn’t have to change my behavior; just accept me the way I am.” Rather, the relationship is seen as a dynamic growth process based on mutual coaching. Dr. McCarthy helps couples break core negative relationship patterns, communicate more effectively, and reduce conflict through his 6-step Softly Specific conflict resolution process. And couples transform their relationship through unselfish love by intentionally meeting one another’s unique love needs.


Dr. McCarthy has conducted a formal research study of the effectiveness of his new approach with the results showing an 80% improvement rate for couples in the first 11 hours of therapy. The study is to be submitted for professional journal publication in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy.

PERSONAL NOTE (By Tim McCarthy, Ph.D.)

“There’s nothing more important than the relationship with your partner in life. It requires skills and competency just like anything else. No one ever told us this because society provides absolutely no knowledge or education about long-term relationship success and marriage. Subsequently, the divorce rate is so very high. If you really want to have a happy marriage, then be proactive, take an intelligent approach and help coach one another to love & happiness!”
