No relationship pushes us like marriage. It is in the conflict of the marriage relationship that we find the greatest opportunity to grow as an individual. It requires personal maturity to have an intimate marriage and an intimate marriage grows mature individuals. Helping couples fight through the issues that push them apart to find an intimacy that deeply honors both as individuals is a great honor. This then sets up an environment that fosters healthy families. After 30 years of providing counseling in various formats, marriage counseling is by far the most rewarding as I have focused on it since 1998.
I most enjoy watching individuals find healthy power and voice as they grow personally. As a result, I am witness to a marriage that grows strong and intimate despite issues that brought them in.
The majority of my practice is affair recovery but as a Certified Sex Therapist a fair percentage of my practice is around sexual issues in marriage (desire, arousal, sexual pain, unconsummated marriages, difficulty with orgasm, etc.).
