    The reason I chose to specialize in marriage and couples counseling is….:

    really because of my parents. They fought like cats and dogs. They loved each other but didn’t know how to fight well. When I married, I tried to avoid fighting, but that didn’t work either, and my own marriage became cold and distant. We sought help from a counselor but the sessions were short and not evidence-based. I thought we were fatally flawed and we divorced.

    When I discovered evidence-based training, I wanted to teach couples how to have a happier, more satisfying life together. In my second marriage, we’ve learned how to fight and I know that you can too. It just requires skill and practice. I believe in intimate relationships and am dedicated to helping couples love intimately as well, and am a practicing board-certified sex therapist which helps.

    What you most enjoy about working with couples is….:

    providing that “ah ha” moment for a couple. That happens when each of them realize that they didn’t pick the “wrong” person to marry, and that they don’t have to separate or divorce. Instead, they just lack skills to relate to each other. That’s wonderful news for the couple, because I teach them those tangible, practical skills that they apply right in session! And that’s a great moment for me, because I watch it happen all in a single weekend intensive marriage retreat that I hold at my home office. It’s exhausting but exhilarating work, and it’s all I do.

    Are there kinds of couples or issues that you work with a lot?:

    “Last shot” couples that plan to divorce if I can’t help them. Fighting couples. Affairs. Aspergers & ADHD (all neuro-atypical couples, actually). International couples. Entrepreneurs and executives across North America who excel in everything else, but struggle in their personal lives.

    What are the steps to becoming a client in my practice?:

    I want to be sure I’m the best couples therapist for you, so I have people who can help you learn more about our retreats. You can contact my Operations Manager Ted, or my Intake Coordinators, Daniel or Nicole. They will describe how I work and answer any questions you may have. If you think we’re a good match after speaking to them, we can set up a 20-minute “get acquainted” meeting. Then you schedule your weekend, pay my fee, and book your air travel (as necessary). We provide suggestions for places you can stay and restaurants you can eat at locally. Then you complete an extensive assessment online, that I review before we meet, and show up on Friday night to begin our first meeting. I only see couples after they complete a thorough assessment.
