I am an expert at helping couples, even those who think they cannot be helped!
Our relationship challenges push us to grow and teach us critical life lessons.
My specialty is couples therapy and divorce prevention. I also have a strong individual therapy practice where I help individuals with mood disorders, relationship issues, trauma, grief, etc.
I show couples how to rediscover the magic that brought them together and build on that. Whatever the issue, an affair, chemical dependency, sexual concerns, I strongly believe that most issues between couples can be resolved with care, attention and a plan!
I am also an expert in dealing with the common situation where one partner is more motivated than the other, or only one partner is willing to come. I can coach you on how to motivate your partner to want to come in. The sooner you make the decision to get started in therapy, the better. Most couples wait too long and then later wished they hadn’t. Go to my Services section for more information. Please note, even if your partner won’t come, I can help you find ways in individual therapy that may very well help begin a turnaround of the relationship.
I have worked with individual for over thirty years. If you are struggling with an issue, please don’t hesitate to call me for a free phone conversation to discuss your needs. My areas of knowledge are broad including behavioral medicine, depression, anxiety, trauma, pain, grief, etc. Let’s talk to see if I am a good match for you!

For 30 years I have been witnessing couples reconnect before my eyes and grow. I can wholeheartedly say it’s so often NOT too late to save your marriage, even when you are convinced that it is! I show couples the necessary steps they need to take to heal and create the relationship of their desires. Please refer to the Articles I have written to learn more about common concerns and what to expect.
When you call we can discuss your particular situation and decide together what would be best for you. Even if your partner will not agree to come, be sure to make that call anyways. Very often there are ways to turn that situation around and motivate your partner to attend with you.
If your partner is unwilling, and that doesn’t change, you can make great progress by coming in yourself. I have had many clients turn their relationships around by themselves. It takes a dedication to things getting better, and that may be exactly what you’ve got!
