Relationship problems bring self-doubt, sadness, and worry. You (and your partner or spouse) may feel alone, but in therapy you are not alone. Here you can talk with someone who listens without judging. Therapists hear your story without pushing advice or making decisions for you. We join your quest for health even if that means walking a difficult path. A solution may emerge as you explore problems in a safe place. There is a hope and a future.

I have a doctorate in humanities, post-master's training in couple's therapy, and a masters in counseling. The Gottman Institute awarded me with a certificate in Level 1 Clinician Training for couples’ therapy. I work with couples and also individuals.

Clinical training taught me how to Listen. Past experience taught about self-disclosure. I have also gone through psychotherapy as a patient. My first wife died of Leukemia. I have remarried and have two children (one is already grown). My background has especially prepared me for: multicultural families, interracial couples, and most any religious preference. Family time, exercise, meditation, and spiritual disciplines help keep me balanced.

I offer appointments on Wednesdays 11:15 am until 7:15 PM; Thursdays 11:15 AM until 7:15 PM and Sundays 9:15 AM until 6:15 PM.

For young families, lack of a babysitter does not need to stop you from counseling. You can bring an infant along to sessions (babies are amazing). Young children can bring headphones and digital media. Insurance providers officially do not pay for "Marriage Counseling" but we have a way to work this out with them.
