About Me

I am an experienced therapist who specializes in working with individuals and couples who are struggling with relationship, marital and sexual issues. As a distinguished professor, author, researcher, and a relationship educator and coach, I am known for my commitment to helping people develop loving and compassionate relationships with themselves and with others in their lives. Additionally, I am an active clinician and I often present workshops and programs through my practice, in collaboration with community groups, and at local and national conferences on subjects such as sexual trauma, family violence, genograms, and relationship enhancement. A primary focus of my clinical practice is working with couples at the "brink of divorce". Often these complicated relationships involve anger management problems, addictions, and unsatisfying personal and intimate lives. My approach to therapy is proactive and client-centered and I use a comprehensive, integrative approach in my work with individuals, couples and families.

The Reason I Became A Helping Professional

Helping people improve their communication skills and their ability to deal with conflict and differences with others so that their personal relationships will be enjoying and satisfying has always had my attention. I have devoted my adult life to the study of intimate relationships - why they work -- and why they don't. At the heart of any loving relationship are two people who are willing to learn and grow for themselves and for their loved ones, especially their spouse or life partner. There is so much great information available to help people achieve their hopes for loving and safe relationships. I also benefit personally in my own life from learning and applying what we know works! Teaching individuals and couples skills in a class setting has helped me expand my knowledge, skills and appreciation for the power people have within them to have satisfying, fulfilling and happy lives.
