You didn’t get here by accident. You want tomorrow to be better than today. 

Your best efforts are not moving you forward. You are ready for something to change. 

Today could be the start of your healing journey.

My clients grapple with thorny issues and get relief through counseling. I’ve seen lives and marriages transformed.

It’s been my honor to be a part of each client’s healing journey. Invite me to join you as you take the next step at (937) 507-6047.

This is a sacred process.

Couples Counseling

Relationships can be a safe haven, a source of safety and comfort and joy.  They can also be a place of misery.

Perhaps you wonder how you two got so lost. Perhaps you already know.

What makes a great relationship is no longer guesswork. Solid research now tells us the specific behaviors that either build or undermine a relationship.

Are you thinking about getting help?

Many couples wait years before they have the courage to make the call.  Is this the moment in your life when courage is speaking to you?

Call me at (937) 507-6047 for a conversation to explore what is possible.

Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find
all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.

Personal Counseling

Sometimes life changes very quickly.  Or perhaps you’ve reached the last outpost in a cascade of events.

  • Does “overwhelmed” describe too much of your life?
  • Are you feeling swept away by a loss or change?
  • Do you over-react to things?
  • Did something happen and you cannot seem to get over it?
  • Have you lost your sense of direction or meaning?
  • Are you longing for a quiet heart?

Usually you manage quite well, but at other times, perhaps right now, you feel completely adrift.

You want to feel better.  You want to look forward with optimism and confidence. You are wondering if counseling could help.

You know deep inside that your days could be different.   You are gathering your courage.  Is this the moment to take the next step towards feeling better?

Call me at (937) 507-6047 for a conversation to explore what is possible.
