Couples Counseling

I have a passion for couples counseling. Especially for those couples who are in crisis. I have helped many couples Mend their Broken Hearts and proceed to Creating a relationship that thrives.

This Process Begins When You

Make That First Call


Couples counseling can help to change relationship patterns into dynamic interactions where relationships thrive. Sessions are designed to generate an understanding of the viewpoint of the partner. From this understanding we work together to build the relationship by a blending of the strengths and weaknesses of each partner.

Success is achieved by a consistent working through of issues, each time with the partners taking more responsibility with the tools that they have learned from previous sessions. I have helped many couples, and I can help you.

Dealing with trust, commitment, communication, addiction to prostitutes, sexting, porn, and intimacy can challenge any relationship. I would like to help you with your concerns today. I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist and have a Doctorate Degree in Psychology, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy, from CGI of the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I have been providing Affordable Relationship Counseling since 2008.

Individual Counseling

If you chose to work with me individually, you and I can work on short term issues that need a quick resolution and/or

we may choose a more Depth Approach.

In addition, you may want to work on Long-term character development. Skills learned in long term therapy could help you gain considerable satisfaction in how you relate to yourself and others.

Depth therapy has changed significantly from the Classical Freudian model which held the therapist in a Superior position. Today many analyst conceptualize a therapist/client collaborative approach.

The focus is on relational explanations where conflictual attachments patterns may be the concern.

We can work on issues such as:




Mid-life Transition,

Existential Issues,



Partner lack of communication

Substance Abuse,

Problematic Sexual Behavior such as addiction to porn, prostitutes, sex, affairs, and sexting etc.

Many of my clients have expressed difficulty discussing their experiences with friends and family. I offer a professional counseling relationship that provides confidential, committed, and supportive therapy where my clients can tell their story, and be heard. This process helps you, the client, sort out your issues.

Counseling can help identify your:

1. Unhealthy patterns,

2. Integrate problems with solutions, and

3. Empower you to live your life with satisfaction!
