My Approach to Helping
As a marriage specialist I provide counsel to all couples and individuals who want a safe place to talk through their reasons for counseling. My approach is straightforward, down to earth, and educational. The more you can learn about marriage and human nature the better your relationship will be. I teach and coach my clients the skills that happy couples use to be successful, i.e., how to communicate, handle conflict, understand gender differences, and solve problems. In addition, I mediate the sessions toward helping couples understand each other's goals, wants and needs. Together we reach agreements and plans designed to help you move your relationship in the direction you would like it to go. Speciality services include pre-marriage education, marriage enrichment, marriage problem solving, couples communication training, affair recovery, marriage uncertainty counseling, separation planning, and couple's divorce counseling. Online marriage assessment and telephone coaching is also available.
