About Dr. Charles Joanides

My work focuses on helping conflicted couples reinvigorate their marriage. To accomplish this objective, I spend time helping each individual partner discern their personal role in the marital distress they are experiencing. I also help partners understand and change ineffective behavioral and communication patterns that are disrupting mutually satisfying conflict resolution. Toxic underlying issues that influence spouses and couples' behavior and undermine meaningful communication are also coaxed to the surface and removed during therapy.

I foster a team approach, and hardly ever sit back and simply observe. At times, I will assume the role of an educator, at other times I am a referee. Sometimes, I may be more like a coach, and at other times I will be like a mirror that reflects back what I am seeing. In each case, my objective is to challenge spouses and couples to accept responsibility and embrace change. Since I believe that therapy should not end once the couple has left my office, couples are assigned regular homework to help sustain the momentum of therapy. While the well-being of a couple’s marriage is my primary focus, as marital satisfaction improves, spouses also report enhanced personal growth.

I have extensive experience working with couples. I teach and train masters level students who are studying marriage and family therapy. I lecture nationally, and I have been published extensively. I have been married for 36 years. We have two adult children and three grandchildren.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Charles Joanides
