Going Over the Edge?

Kathy J. Marshack, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist in Oregon and Washington.

Are you fatigued, lonely, and misunderstood in your relationship? If that’s how you feel, I can help you find your voice and take back your life.

I specialize in complex marital/couple and family configurations that are often hard to treat with conventional psychotherapy.

Does anything on this list ring a bell?

I offer online video therapy to people from all over the world, and I can help you with:

  • “Asperger Syndrome” or High Functioning Autism in marriage and parenting
  • Empathy Dysfunction, helping you take your life back from narcissists and others who clearly don’t know who you really are—and may not care
  • Co-Dependency in any relationship when a partner, family member, or friend who is hooked on anything be it alcohol, gambling, or other compulsions
  • High Conflict Divorce—when you and the kids are trapped in a no-win fight
  • Entrepreneurial Couples who face the burden of making it work at work and at home

Video Appointments From the Comfort of Your Home

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” — Maya        Angelou.

 

I offer online video appointments to people from all over the world.

For over 40 years, I counseled neurodiverse couples, so I know exactly what you’re going through and how frustrating it is when nobody understands. I can give you the tools to take your life back.

Having online video calls helps me to know you better too since you are free to be the real you when you call in from the privacy of your own place. To book your appointment, please visit my Contact page.

Coming Events

Separately from 1-1 appointments, I also offer video conferences and teleconferences to an international group of members on MeetUp, entitled “Asperger Syndrome: Partners & Family of Adults with ASD.” We discuss topics related to “Asperger Syndrome” (ASD) and Empathy Dysfunction (EmD).

These informal conferences offer you the opportunity to ask questions, as well as to chat with others who share your concerns.

You can see our upcoming conferences below:

Asperger Syndrome: Partners & Family of Adults with ASD

If you are a Neuro-Typical (NT) partner, family, or friend of an adult with high functioning autism, our MeetUp group is a lifesaver. You can learn more about our international MeetUp group by visiting our dedicated website and then joining our MeetUp group, “Asperger Syndrome: Partners & Family of Adults with ASD.” Please know that you are not alone.

I host this private Meetup group for those who want the personal touch of meeting face-to-face with others who are living with these complex relationships. If you have recently discovered that your partner or family member is on the Autism Spectrum, this Meetup group can help. No matter where in the world you live, you can connect with our community

Dr. Marshack’s Books

If you are in a complex relationship, I understand what you are going through. I lived this life too. My books are also designed to help.
