Helping You Build Big, Beautiful, Lasting Relationships

I love to help individuals and couples move towards healing, vitality, and joy in all their partnerships.

Strengthening Relationships in the Southern Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire Area Since 1990

Is your marriage on the brink of divorce? Don’t know how to heal from the betrayal of an affair? Having communication problems? Not sure how to improve your most important relationships?

My name is Susan Lager, and I am a licensed, board certified psychotherapist and relationship coach based in the Portsmouth, New Hampshire area.

Live outside of New Hampshire? No problem! I am more than able to assist you through my online Couplespeak™ programs. In addition, my Blog and original Couplespeak™ Series books, as well as my BlogTalk radio show and The Couplespeak™ Relationship Forum covers a wide range of topics. Contact me for more information or to book a session.


  • “Susan’s expertise as a couples’ therapist extends well beyond her ability to discern the heart of a problem in a no-nonsense way. She is warm, completely fair to both partners, and offers each person a fresh way to look at his or her role in contributing to, and resolving, a couple’s problem. She is absolutely top notch in her profession. “

    – L and R, Lee, NH
