About Ann Langley

I am Dr. Ann Langley and I have been practicing psychotherapy for over 25 years.  My specialities include couples therapy, sex therapy and working with people struggling with addictions.   I teach couples a more sophisticated way of communicating enabling them to express their emotions more effectively and to listen and understand each other in a more beneficial way.  Often when couples begin to experience feeling understood, their desire for closeness enhances intimacy both emotionally and sexually.  Gradually, with practice in my office, couples begin to utilize their improved communication skills at home. 

Addictions of all kinds have the opposite effect on intimacy, whether it's drugs and alcohol, over work, too many hours spent on electronics, gambling, shopping or pornography on the internet.  Establishing a trusting relationship can be the first step out of the loneliness and isolation of addiction.  Hope is usually the missing ingredient which I attempt to provide both troubled couples and individuals struggling with addictions.
