Success in dealing with marriage and family therapy; the story of Patty Rocklage

It is quite unfortunate that one in every three marriages in the country ends up in divorce. What is even more interesting is the fact that most of the issues that people think of as being too complicated are often the matters that can have simple solutions with communication and professional help from the right quarters. When Patty Rocklage started her practice, she hoped that she would manage to reach as many families in distress as possible and now, many decades later, she can boast of a resounding level of success in what she does. These are a few of the things that she has shared about her experiences so far.

Patty Rocklage says that as a therapist, there is nothing that makes her happier than knowing that she has successfully helped a couple works through the difficulties of life. She has been practicing in Sudbury, Massachusetts and is well known and respected in the area for her expertise. She says that most of the time, marriages start to break when communication breakdown happens. Sometimes, people will avoid speaking about their true feelings on certain subjects because they are afraid of the disagreements and the arguments that ensue. When these issues are bottled up, it leads to resentment over time. Distance is created and by the end of the day, the couple may end up being completely unable to handle their differences, while the initial cause of the problem was something that could have been handled.

She feels that sometimes, even though trying to account for every penny in a marriage situation might make one seem petty, if an issue is disturbing one person enough to steal their peace of mind, it is worth a discussion. Patty has been practicing for the past 30 years and in her experience, it is the small things that add up to the final flare up. She studied and graduated from USC in 1981. When she is not helping families with their issues, Patty enjoys spending time with her husband, Scott Rocklage and her family. She is a true inspiration to the medical circles.
