Specializing in Asperger Syndrome and Relationships

As a licensed psychologist and marriage and family therapist, Dr. Kathy Marshack specializes in treating Asperger Syndrome and relationships. Asperger Syndrome (AS) is the term applied to the high functioning end of what is known as the spectrum of pervasive developmental disorders or the Autism spectrum.

Focusing on the Neurotypical (NT) partners and family members of someone with AS, Dr. Marshack teaches them to understand Asperger Syndrome and then take a close look at how it impacts their relationships. Dr. Marshack also works with the AS partner to help them learn social and relationship skills that the NT needs to have a healthy relationship. Without insight and tolerance gained from understanding, many NT spouses and family members end up feeling misunderstood, frustrated, isolated and unloved. Unfortunately this often and unnecessarily leads to divorce.
