I believe that the family is the bedrock of society. When families are unstable that impacts the entire culture. I grew up in an emotionally unstable home. When I launched out into adulthood, I knew what I didn't want in a marriage, but I didn't know what I did want. I felt a calling to the marriage and couples counseling field and found that I was very passionate to discover how to enrich my marriage as well as share what I learned with others. Now I have the relationship of my dreams. Becky and I have been married for over 40 years and the work I am doing with couples is amazingly fulfilling.
There is so much that I enjoy about working with couples. First I have enjoyed meeting and getting intimately acquainted with such a diverse population. I especially appreciate the willingness that so many have shown to become quite vulnerable when I can facilitate creating a safe place to explore what is often deeply hidden inside each person. I enjoy seeing the deep satisfaction that so many didn't think we even possible to attain in their relationship.
There are some issues that I work with a lot. Several local therapists refer their most challenging couples to me. A large percentage of couples I work with one or both have had or are having an affair of some kind.
The best way to become a client is to give my office manager a call. Her number is 618-516-3338. Tell her that you would like to work directly with me. She can answer any questions you may have, and, if appropriate, schedule an initial session with me.
