Dr. Rita DeMaria is an experienced therapist who specializes in working with individuals and couples who are struggling with relationship, marital and sexual issues. She is a distinguished professor, author, researcher, and relationship educator and coach known for her commitment to helping people develop loving and compassionate relationships with themselves and with others in their lives. Additionally, she is an active clinician and presents workshops and programs through her practice, in collaboration with community groups, and at local and national conferences on subjects such as sexual trauma, family violence, genograms, and relationship enhancement. A primary focus in her clinical practice is working with couples at the "brink of divorce".

The Reason I Became A Helping Professional

Helping people improve communication and self esteem so that their personal relationships would be enjoying and satisfying has always had my attention. I have devoted my adult life to the study of intimate relationships - why they work -- and why they don't. There is so much great information available to help people achieve their hopes for loving and safe relationships. I also benefit personally in my own life from learning and applying what we know works! Teaching individuals and couples skills in a class setting has helped me expand my knowledge, skills and appreciation for the power people have within them to change the lives.
