About Wendi Dumbroff

Choosing the right couples therapist is a very serious decision. I am trained in both couples and family therapy. When there are issues in the marriage, there are often problems that come up with children as well. My training allows me to move fluidly between couple and family work, in an effort to help children and their parents communicate better, and strengthen their relationships.

I work with individuals, couples, and families who are dealing with many different kinds of problems. These include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Couples Conflict & Affairs
  • Family Conflict
  • Divorcing Families
  • Raising Adolescents
  • Parenting Issues
  • Parent/Child Relationships (including parents and adult children)
  • LGBTQ Issues
  • Sexual Issues
  • and so much more….

I view counseling as a collaborative process that is co-created between therapist and client(s). There is no one “truth” that fits for everyone, as each individual and each relationship are unique and special entities. I believe it is important not only to address the things that are not working for clients, but also, to bring forth the many strengths and positive qualities they possess.

Cultural competency is of utmost importance in my work. I am very aware of the lenses, which I see through, given my gender, race, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc. I know that my experiences in life are different from others’ experiences and I work hard to understand these differences.

A Little Bit About My Training

I have specialized training in Family and Couples Therapy, which I obtained through a post-graduate program at the Ackerman Institute for the Family, in New York City. In my four years at the Ackerman Institute, I learned how to work with families and couples through intensive supervision, didactic learning, and working with clients. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from and be mentored by, some of the best and most well-known therapists in the fields of family and couples therapy.

I am currently pursuing post-graduate certification in the area of Sex Therapy. Sexual issues are very prevalent in my work with couples as well as individuals, whether they identify as heterosexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer, and whether their sexual preferences are more mainstream or kinky. I will provide you with a safe, sex-positive environment to discuss your most personal issues.

My hope is to provide you with a non-judgmental, open, and safe environment to talk about whatever it is that brings you to therapy. Ultimately, I want to help create positive change in the lives of my clients.

Couples Therapy

Human beings are creatures of habit. We get used to doing things a certain way, and those ways can become, almost automatic. Couples do the same thing! Couples get caught in habitual patterns with each other. I’m sure if you are thinking about your own relationship, you may be shaking your head in agreement. Part of couples therapy is to explore and understand the cycles we get into with each other. Perhaps you are struggling with the idea of coming to couples therapy, but it is an opportunity to begin to do things differently in your relationship.

Couples work is also fertile ground to really get to know and understand yourself and your partner better. I have heard people say many times, things like, “I just didn’t realize why I was so reactive when she/he did that.” As couples begin to understand themselves and their partners better, and “have the conversations that haven’t be had,” they can organically learn to do things differently, and make changes in cycles which haven’t been useful in their lives.

The discovery of an affair is often a reason why couples will present for therapy. An affair does not have to mean the end of a marriage. It is, of course, an emotional trauma for both partners. However, many couples go on to have even better relationships after the discovery of an affair. There are books and resources available, and the work of couples therapy, again helps to identify and make changes in un-useful cycles in relationships.

Sex Therapy

Sexual issues are sometimes hard for couples (or individuals) to talk about, but they are often a topic in couples therapy. I have chosen to pursue certification as an AASECT (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists) Certified Sex Therapist, so that I can skillfully help people in this arena. I offer a safe and non-judgmental place to talk about all sexual issues. These may include matters around comfort with emotional and/or physical intimacy, affairs, low desire, discrepant desire, physical pain with sexual activity, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, LGBTQ issues, sexuality as we age, sexuality and illness, sexual addiction in one member of the couple, polyamory, BDSM, kink, and so much more.

Couples therapy is an opportunity to begin creating change in your relationship. I can offer you a safe place to explore these difficult issues.
