Little did I know I was about to develop a new, burning passion and, ultimately, career. My life became an ongoing search for BETTER approaches to managing conflict and staying connected in relationships. I threw myself into research and higher education, determined to help solve relationship struggles, communication problems and assist couples in saving their marriages. My primary influences: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Attachment Theory, and Non-Violent Communication. Combining this research with mine, I created a highly effective, comprehensive approach to helping couples have HEALTHY and happy relationships.
Bottom line: This stuff works. I’ve spent years testing and perfecting it with my clients, many of whom were so unhappy and dysfunctional that they, to most, seemed absolutely doomed. Guess what? They weren’t. I helped make the seemingly-impossible possible. If I can help them, I can help you! Anyone can learn to have a HAPPY and mutually satisfying relationship; of this, I’m 100 percent certain.
For the past six years, I’ve had the good fortune to live my dream: I have helped hudreds of couples move into what has been for most a new landscape of respectful-loving. More than 90 percent of the couples who work with me are able to make changes and to show improvement and growth in their marriage. I think it’s fair to say that progress can be measured by changes in your ability to better control what YOU do and what you say.
