What I believe is that LOVE is primary to our relationships. Therefore love must be central to any work with couples. In addressing the conflict and distance that naturally arises in all relationships, I provide couples with LOVE based solutions. In addition to learning communication skills couples learn to understand ways they can begin to bring love back into their relationships. To read more about this unique approach check out the book You Can Be Right or You Can Be Married. Also look at my Date Night Deck, 52 date ideas to strengthen your relationship.

I am a second generation of Marriage and Family Therapists, and have worked it the field my entire career. Presently I train therapists in what is called Love-Based Solutions, and focus predominately on providing marriage education course to hundreds of couples. I have served on several boards for professional psychological organization, in multiple positions including President. My training has focused on brief forms of therapy such as Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Ericsonian Hypnosis, a Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. I work quickly with couples to produce rapid change. What some therapists do in 6 months I do in 6 sessions.
The site provides an online Scheduler for in person, phone, or online marriage counseling or relationship coaching sessions.
Your video brought tears to my eyes. Marriage counseling is indeed a special calling. My story is similar to yours in that I also learned to be a healer from watching my parents and experiencing the pain that marital discord creates. One of my professors in grad school used to say "Marriage therapists are born, not made. If you weren't born into the profession, there's nothing I can do to teach you." As the years go by and I see colleagues drop out of the field because of stress and burnout, I agree with him more and more. I wish you well in your practice and your destiny!

It's not uncommon for a piece of information about marriage to get taken out of context in order to construct an argument whether it's true or not. Dr. Karen Sherman weighs in on a few of these out-of-context arguments.
