My Approach to Helping

I am a happily married husband, father, and grandfather. My wife and I enjoy the beach and ocean, traveling, and time with family and friends. I enjoy helping couples develop happier and more satisfying relationships. Most of my understanding about making marriage work I have been practicing in my marriage. For example, when I say something hurtful, I know how to help repair her hurt. I continue learning as a professional marriage therapist so that I am able to offer you my expert counseling services.

I also understand, as a marriage therapist, how couples have been enduring extraordinary circumstances. Couples need to recover and may need some healing, repair, and attentive counseling assistance either to return to the quality place of your pre-COVID-19 relationship, or to address some issues that have been shelved, but now deserve your attention.

More Info About My Practice

As a person of compassion, I would like to be of professional help to you as I am able. I invite you to call me so that we may talk about your concerns and how counseling could benefit you. During a free 15 minute phone consultation we will talk about our options of either IN-PERSON appointments in a safe out-of-doors environment or Tele-Counseling. We will take time to answer your questions.

As an additional way of supporting my clients, I am providing my counseling sessions for a reduced fee of $100 and for an extended session time of one hour.
