All couples start out delighted to be together. They fall in love and have a beautiful wedding. They live happily ever after for awhile. This probably sounds like you, right?

But eventually marriage can suffer from a lack of attention. You might find yourself growing apart. Maybe your communication leads to fighting or even worse, you are sitting in your respective corners hoping to avoid each other. Bad habits lead to destructive patterns and the dream of a great marriage turns into a bad nightmare.

You and your spouse may still love each other, but waking up in the middle of the night, you wonder what happened to happily ever after.

You are here now. You have made the big step of looking for a marriage counselor. So, how can I help?

“Don’t wait until the threat of divorce to seek counseling. I have helped many couples in that state, but the earlier you seek help the better your chances of saving your marriage.”

I listen to your story of what has gone well and what has gone wrong. I help you to learn how to talk more effectively, get rid of the habits and patterns that cause hurt and start meeting each other’s needs. Hope returns, and with it greater marital satisfaction. Before long, you possess the skills and tools to build a successful relationship.

I stand ready to help! The quickest and easiest way to schedule is to use my “online scheduler”. You just click on the day and time that works best for you. You can also call or text me at 217-637-0229 or email me at
