Marriage Counseling & Couples Therapy

In my twenty-five years providing marriage counseling and couples therapy, I have been privileged to be part of rebuilding marriages, strengthening families and rediscovering lost love. I have helped couples work through loss of trust, extended periods of distance, sexual difficulties, loneliness, and more. When couples make saving their marriage their highest priority, they begin to express compassion, rediscover curiosity, and communicate without fear or judgment. Hope, closeness, and trust are rebuilt

My approach to marriage counseling is straightforward and down to earth.  We will build on the strengths you have as a couple instead of focusing on weaknesses. Because we work collaboratively, our focus will be on developing productive communication:  What do you love in your relationship?  What drives you crazy?  What makes you sad? You will learn to listen to your spouse without anxiety and to open up with confidence.

I am delighted to be invited into a marriage to help build and strengthen it. I don’t give up on commitments, having been married 26 years, run several marathons, been awarded a patent and more. I will bring that same level of persistence to our work together. I am a steadfast partner in solving complex problems regardless of how difficult or challenging they might be.

Your relationship is, quite simply, your most valuable asset. Over the years I have worked with couples who have overcome bankruptcy, endured the profound loss of a loved ones, reshaped their professional lives or nurtured each other through frightening illness. Having a relationship that is built on a healthy foundation helps to make sure this relational asset is well managed for the difficult times. As a trusted family therapist and marriage counselor I have provided marriage counseling for twenty five years to our community. If you are dealing with challenges, you want someone helping you who is experienced and has a demonstrated track record of supporting couples as they work to grow closer.
