Dr. Friedland offers individual, couples or family counseling to build understanding, abilities, and skills to manage these challenges, and guide individuals to actively shape their choices. 

 

Individuals and families change over time as they go through developmental stages, planned and unplanned life events, or crises. People also change as a result of new relationships, interests, and careers they create. If individuals do not adapt to their own changes or those close to them then stress and strain may occur.

 

Disappointments, hurts, rivalries, differing views or unmet needs frequently cause discord or isolation. Additionally unexpressed or misunderstood feelings and needs can affect people negatively. What is unique about Dr. Friedland is her ability to guide individuals and families to identify, grow and use their strengths and capabilities to maximize relationships and self-understanding. Stress, disappointment, unhappiness, frustration, depression, and conflict are among the issues that bring people into treatment. Dr. Friedland expands the individual’s and family’s ability to communicate, manage conflicts and relate more collaboratively.
