About Dr. Mark Burton

Unfortunately I cannot be available at this time; my practice is currently full. When openings again arise, I will update this listing.

Most people seeking help for a relationship want to improve communication, increase affection, or address some of the conflicts that couples naturally encounter over time. To get the help that you need, you probably want a therapist that you and your partner are comfortable with, someone who is respectful and fair, someone with practical ideas to enhance your relationship.

Yet finding someone you are comfortable with can be difficult by simply reading profiles. For this reason, I encourage you to contact me. I will be happy to discuss your needs and any questions that you have about counseling. If you decide to schedule a first meeting, we will develop a shared understanding of the problem, clarify your hopes for your relationship, and then discuss a counseling plan for you and your partner.

Couples Concerns

Couples counseling can be very helpful in addressing the issues listed below. For the past 25 years I have provided help in these areas for straight couples, LGBT couples and for individuals seeking advice when a partner is unable to attend:

  • Improved communication & problem solving
  • Deepening of affection
  • Marital and premarital checkups
  • Problems with depression, anxiety or anger
  • Dual career and family business challenges
  • Financial problems
  • Divorce, ambivalence or commitment issues
  • Collaborative parenting skills

  • Substance use & addiction
  • Medical problems & aging
