Four Steps To Success

Four Steps To Success

In my private counseling practice, clients often tell me, "I want to be happy!" We then set about making it a reality. As a psychotherapist, I know that your habits, your relationships, your environment, and especially what you think about them determine more about how happy you are than your genes do because I've watched so many people figure out how to meet their goals and create their own happiness.

Change Gears! Life Gets Easier!

Change Gears! Life Gets Easier!

It was early Saturday morning and I was stopped at a red light. As I sat there a cyclist came peddling across the crosswalk and I noticed that he was peddling really fast, but hardly moving with respect to the effort he was putting into the peddling.

Having a sex contract in your marriage

Most people commit to a marriage for life, without discussing their idea of what sex should be like in the marriage.

Laughter during sex creates more playfulness in the relationship

Especially when it comes to marriage and as the old saying goes “doing the duty” or “getting to the orgasm”. Sex is supposed to be fun, sexy, playful, erotic and orgasmic.
