You’ve got problems, and you don’t have time. Consequently, you want a therapist who is uber-practical and a straight-shooter. No more nodding-head therapists who have “mmm, hmm; how do you feel about that” on repeat.
If you want fluff, I provide referrals.
Had enough of the fluff? Now’s the time to own your shit; I’ll grab a shovel, too.
You want someone who’s straight to the point so that you can get on with your life. Sure, credentials matter, but what really matters to you is someone who provides quality and value starting session #1. More, when it comes to hiring a consultant to improve your relationship and sex life, you want someone exceptionally skilled at both and with a proven track record. With my straightforward approach, what I also call CAREfrontational, backed by the science of what works in bringing about change, you’ll gain clarity, break old patterns, tackle mind-chatter, and experience satisfying sex and intimacy.
Clients often say that I also bring a zen quality to much of my work and that I have an uncanny sense of understanding people, their emotions, and motives. Clients report coming to session believing that their problems were insurmountable to only realize that what they really want in life is found on the other side of comfort.
Choose a path. Your guide awaits.
You deserve a bulldog when it comes to fighting for your relationship. Our clients expect a “tell you how it is” therapist. They want us to bring a realness to sessions and ensure that the voice of the relationship is heard.
Consequently, we offer a unique approach to couples’ work. Unlike many couples counselors who orchestrate sessions as if doing individual therapy with two people in the room, which often contributes to failed treatment, your sessions focus on the dance that occurs between you.
You can trust that your vital issues will be addressed and QUICKLY! We want to help you get to where you want to go as fast as possible.
That’s what makes us unique!
I grew-up on welfare in central Pennsylvania and came from a family that had many of the problems associated with poverty. In college, the first in my family to go, I found that people felt safe and comfortable talking to me about their relationships and sexual histories. A biology professor told me that that was a gift, and I should pursue it.
These experiences propelled me towards this career and, ultimately, to you arriving here. I bring all aspects of my history to create a better life for those whom I serve. I offer you this familiarity, compassion, and understanding as you progress towards creating a better life.
During down-time, I enjoy the arts, weight training, yoga, singing, reading, cooking and exploring my Scottish roots (and sporting my kilts). I previously served as Vice President on the board of trustees for Unity in Greensboro, my spiritual home, where I lead Sunday service several times a year.
I genuinely look forward to serving you.
