Leading the Relationship Revolution one Couple at a Time

I am grateful to be living the life of my dreams doing marriage counseling and couples counseling. I love training wonderful mental health professionals all over the planet in Imago Relationship Therapy.

I am a part of an international community of couples counselors, Imago Relationships International (IRI) who are some of the most brilliant clinicians in the world.  We form an organization that is on the cutting edge of psychotherapy and is changing the world one couple at a time.  In summary I love what I am doing and I love the relationship that I have with my soul mate.
My passion has always been to do marriage counseling, couples counseling and family counseling.  That is why I committed over 30 years ago to equip myself to provide the best marriage counseling, couples counseling, and family counseling possible.  

When I first started my private counseling practice, I struggled.  Worst of all my couples’ counseling was dismal, dreadful and discouraging.  In private practice I was isolated and alone.  After one particularly difficult couples counseling session I realized none of my education, experience, talent or passion for working with couples mattered.  Beyond that, my frustrations and lack of success was deeply impacting my personal relationships as well.  I was irritable and I needed something more.  So, I dedicated myself to seeking answers.

Then I discovered Harville Hendrix, my mentor and author of Getting The Love You Want:  A Guide for Couples.  Wow!  What an amazing experience.  That first two-day training was phenomenal.  The demonstrations that I saw in the way he worked with couples was mind blowing.  Without hesitation I knew that this is what I needed.    I immediately decided to follow up with the Imago certification process.  

My private counseling practice was transformed. Today I have expanded my practice to a thriving group counseling practice, The Midwest Relationship Center, LLC in Swansea, IL.  I found a home with an international community of Imago therapists, Imago Relationships International, who are dedicated to excellence in couples counseling.  I was honored with an invitation to join Dr. Hendrix and The International Faculty for Imago Relationships International.  However, without a doubt the most important thing I gained is the personal transformation in my love life. Becky and I celebrate our passion for each other more joyfully, freely, and playfully than ever before. We Are Getting the Love We Want.

I am now part of a community that is changing the world one couple at a time, and I am inviting you to join me.  I want you to experience the same kind of joyfulness and passion that I experience daily in my relationship with Becky.

Unresolved relationship conflicts cause emotional distress with psychological symptoms such as feelings of anxiety, depression, moodiness, decreased energy, disruption of sleep patterns, diminished or increased appetites and libido. These kinds of stress impact relationships as well as daily functioning in the workplace and at home. Physical problems such as headaches, stomach problems, and backaches can be due to mismanaged stress. Whatever the difficulty any unresolved issue is an appropriate reason to seek psychotherapy. Clients frequently comment on my empathic empowering presence.  I am often told that through my counseling, The Getting The Love You Want workshops or the Connected Parents Thriving Kids workshops, couples are empowered to restore their relationships or their marriage and rediscover their passion and joy. 

If you are in a committed relationship and you are struggling -- Imago Relationship Counseling is the solution for you.  Lets work together to create the transformations you desire.
