    Co-parenting Issues

    For a number of years, I worked as a middle school counselor. It was rewarding yet sometimes painful. Actually, my decision to specialize in marriage counseling was made with those children in mind. You may be wondering why.

    It is because I saw too many children hurting over their parents fighting. I saw too many children feeling crushed between parents who were divorced or in the middle of divorce. Their tears touched my heart so I decided the best way I could help children was through helping their parents.

    I believe most parents want what is best for their children. Ironically, it is the most important role in life and one that we are least trained for. It is the most challenging job we will ever have. No matter how difficult it is, I believe that parents can handle about anything as long as they stick together.

    Sometimes parents need help learning how to be a team and how to work together for their children’s best interests. I help parents with their communication, teamwork, setting expectations for their children and discipline.

    My wife and I have taught many classes on parenting. We have raised three children who are doing great and are in happy marriages. We could not have achieved what we have without help. We made lots of mistakes along the way.

    When you work with me, here’s what you can expect. When you attend our first session, I will take copious notes so I can understand what you need in order to have a better, stronger family.

    We will start immediately working to reach your goals. My counseling will be a no nonsense, straight forward approach. We will deal with the nuts and bolts of your relationship and your family.

    Every session will be designed to build on the previous one, and every session will be designed to help you reach your goals. Soon you will start feeling more hopeful as you build better habits of communication and connection. Soon you will be on the way to having a better, stronger marriage.

    You are probably wondering about my fees. I charge $200 per 50 minute session. You can also request an 80 minute session. I don’t work with insurance. My FAQs page will explain why.
