Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor | MA, LPCC
I love marriage. Two becoming one, a team, love and laughter, for better or worse. Marriage is something most of us long for, look for, and work hard to get…and then half of us can’t wait to get out of it because it’s so confusing, painful and difficult.
I believe in marriage. I believe we have a Creator who sees a bigger picture and purpose for marriage than our momentary comfort and pleasure. I believe marriage is a commitment worth fighting for and investing in.
I consider it an honor to work with couples through the complex dynamics of marriage in hopes of healing, restoration, healthy communication, and intimacy.
Life can be hard and shouldn’t be faced alone. My goal is to come along side you, as if to sit in the passenger seat of your car for a time to help you navigate the journey through encouragement, practical help, strengthening communication skills, understanding behavior patterns, and finding clarification of life values and goals. I’m happy to meet you over the phone for a free, brief, phone consultation to see if you are comfortable talking with me before scheduling an appointment. Currently only seeing couples located in Ohio.
