running on beachYou can succeed in the most important relationships of your life, with yourself, spouse and/or intimate partner, and children. There are no perfect marriages and families, but there are successful ones. 

Sometimes just a little bit of good information can help change things around.  Through Relationship Success I will be offering classes and workshops for schools, churches, and community organizations providing you with best information from Scripture, Christian Tradition, and social research about how one can succeed in life in love, marriage, and family.

Sometimes good information is not enough.   When couples are stuck in negative patterns and continue to be a source of frustration and hurt for one another, they need help from a trained marriage counselor to help them…

  • stop the negative cycle of hurting one another;
  • listen to one another for understanding;
  • forgive one another;
  • create new and positive ways of interacting;
  • renew emotional engagement;
  • restore trust, love, friendship, and fun.

I am available for counseling individuals, couples, and/or families.
