Practice focused on couples
Dynamic, research based interventions for couples
Over 25 years’ experience as a couples counselor
- Establish relief quickly
- Get recovery moving forward immediately
- Work outside sessions is as important to your recovery as work we do together
- Use homework to keep your learning fresh and give it real life relevance to you
I like to work hard with each couple to establish relief quickly and get recovery moving. I believe that one of the truest tests of having found the right professional to work with you is how quickly you feel a benefit from the counseling. I often suggest activities between sessions to keep your learning fresh and give it real life relevance.

Years ago, I noted that most couples counseling is anecdotal, or based on the psychological theory of the therapist. Fortunately, in recent years, there has been a growth of research in the area of relationships. This research provides the basis for the work I do with couples. The work I do is not based primarily on unproven theory. It is based on scientific studies of what works for couples and what does not.
After deciding to ask for help, the most important choice you make is your choice of counselor. Your ability to reach your goal of restoring your faith in the relationship, your respect for one another, and your commitment to the relationship depends to great extent upon the experience and training of your therapist. Choose an experienced counselor with a practice that focuses on relationships.
I obtained my Masters Degree in Marriage and Family counseling from the University of North Texas in 1988, and have provided seminars, counseling, and training to other counselors in the area of relationships consistently since that time. Topics I present to community and professional groups include: Relationship Compatibility, Online Dating, Communication, Boundaries, and Recovering from Infidelity.
