What is Therapy Like?
My therapy is pretty down to earth. We get right to the point to help you get the results you want to get. Most couples go round and round in arguments and can’t figure out why they keep doing it – especially when they know it only gets them the same results. I help you and your spouse explore the unspoken rules that keep you both in the same unhelpful pattern. You will get a better understanding of yourself and your partner by exploring the deeper, more core beliefs that you both have that are affecting your relationship. We will work on finding the ones causing you both to stumble and will help you co-create a new ones with your partner that feels fulfilling and rewarding again. I help you two to create new goals together as a couple that are exciting, vibrant and passionate.
If you’re seeing me for infidelity, we get right to work rebuilding trust first and foremost. We do this by getting to work controlling the damage and chaos that comes when an affair has been discovered. Then we begin to unpack why the affair happened and how to keep it from happening again. There was a reason the affair happened. You can’t look back to the old relationship because there were pieces of it that made your relationship vulnerable. So I help you build a new relationship and leave those vulnerabilities behind. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.
What do you do when you’re not doing therapy?
I’m an avid father of three children. I love exploring the many beautiful things the world has to offer and sharing them with my little family. This usually includes going to new restaurants with unique menus, going to small town festivals, and exploring new sites. And when I want to take a break you’ll find me with a wrench under the hood of my hotrod or wasting my brain watching a scary movie.
