I work primarily with men who have been abused, especially sexual abuse as children and serious mental health issues.
I also work with couples.
Watch my brief video on couples therapy here.
My success as a couples therapist is based on my unique method of
1. Teaching research proven listening and speaking skills
2. Using state of the art Prepare and Enrich relationship evaluation and workbook to accomplish short and long-term goals
