Dr. Harry Motro
Harry deeply cares for couples and loves working with them. His background includes the following:
he serves as the clinical director of the Neurodiverse Couples Counseling Center and the Couples Counseling Center,
he has fully dedicated his practice to couples therapy,
he has received specialized couples training at the Master's & Doctoral levels,
he teaches Couples Therapy and Family Systems as an Adjunct Professor, supervises other couples therapists, and
he has been married 36 years with adult children.
His interest in neurodiverse couples is rooted in his personal life experiences and his practice in Silicon Valley, a neurodiversity hot spot.
Most neurodiverse couples start off woefully uninformed about their differences and how to support and accept each other. This misinformation leads to misunderstanding, which eventually grows to believing the other partner is cruel, mean or uncaring. Complete polarization often occurs and almost all intimacy dies. The most important part of our work in therapy is to free you from this horrible blame and shame cycle. We reset the whole relationship and build from a new understanding.
