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?

  • “Asperger Syndrome” or High Functioning Autism in marriage and parenting
  • Co-Dependency in any relationship when a partner, family member or friend who is hooked on anything be it alcohol, gambling, or other compulsion
  • Entrepreneurial Couples who face the burden of making it work at work and at home
  • High Conflict Divorce—when you and the kids are trapped in a no-win fight
  • 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


Video Therapy or Old-fashioned Sit-on-the-Couch Therapy?

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

“Video therapy isn’t just a fad or merely convenient. It offers a relaxing way to connect with your psychologist from the comfort of familiar surroundings. It 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 or space.
