Are You Struggling to Find
Happiness in Your Relationship?

There is a rhythm to life; to everything we experience, much like the ebb and flow of the tide. Nowhere is this more apparent than when we experience disconnect within our relationship.  When we experience struggle, that intimate connection is challenged.  Our behaviors though, have rewards and consequences and you have it within you to bring that connection back and to create the relationship that you both deserve.  Whether you are interested in enhancing or repairing your love, or finding love itself, I have the skills and expertise to help.

Obstacles to Intimacy & the 
Rewards to Overcoming Them

What's it like to be in a relationship with you? Sometimes it takes a new perspective; a new way of looking at yourself and the expectations that you have of your partner.  You have been given the gift of this relationship; the choice is yours: Shall you unwrap this gift and rise to the challenge, however fearful you may be; whatever obstacles may be in your way?

The bottom line is this:  There are obstacles to intimacy in every relationship.  However, the good news is that once you've identified those obstacles and make appropriate changes in behavior, your relationship has the ability to become more positive, more fulfilling, more intimate than you could have imagined.  It's my honor to accompany you on the journey to a rewarding marriage.  You already have what it takes within you!

Communication, conflict and commitment are the foundation of a trusting relationship.  Coaching is an exploration of your foundation:
  • How do you speak to each other? What is your communication pattern as a couple?  
  • How do you manage your differences? Do you "fight fair"? 
  • How do you solve problems and make decisions as a couple?    
  • Is there trust within your relationship?

Bringing Passion &
Purpose to Our Work Together

My strength as a therapist over two decades is being able to very proficiently assess the issues in your relationship. I work with passion and purpose to help you realize the absolute joy that is marriage.  To reap the rewards inherent in a loving, intimate relationship.  We all want, and deserve, a place of acceptance and security; that warm, soft spot in each other in which to lay our heads at night - without reservation, without doubt, without longing because we have found where we belong.

I'm privileged to have practiced in a dynamic, stimulating areas such as Silicon Valley, CA and Raleigh Triangle areas and I appreciate the success my clients have achieved in their professional lives.  For some it's a difficult transition from the orderly, logical world of business to that of love and relationships.  Love isn't always logical!  I help my clients view love as a work of art - and intimacy as a dance. If you're looking for a relationship to fill that deep personal need for closeness, I can help.  The process of finding love isn't always an easy one, but it can be such an enriching journey!

Announcing My Newest Book

I have co-authored a book with my colleague Teresa Lauer, LMHC, titled "How To Be A Couple".  If you are in a relationship, at an level, my new book will give you insight to yourself and your partner and contains exercises that you can do together at home, to strengthen your relationship many times over!

We are also in the process of creating an online course, based upon our book and containing a fresh, innovative concept and approach to your relationship that I feel will significantly change your passion and commitment to your partner.  I invite you to check back often for updates and visit my blog at
