The Couples Therapy with the Highest Rate of Success

I have two specialties. One of my specialties is Marriage Counseling. For the other specialty, see below. The statistics for relationships that improve with counseling hovers at around 70%. I have hit an incredible 90% success rate. I have broken down the process into a step-by-step process that is easy to understand.

I come from a long line of healthy marriages. My parents were married for 58 years before my father passed away in December of 2018. Both sets of my grandparents were married "till death do us part". My father had 12 siblings, and all but one had lifelong marriages. All my mom's siblings stayed married their entire lives.

The approach I use was heralded by both the New York Times and Time Magazine as the "the couples therapy with the highest rate of success".

"We've communicated in 6 weeks (of counseling) what we couldn't in 6 years by ourselves."

I wrote my first "About Me" page about ten years ago when I first began my private practice. You can read it at In a nutshell, I left my lucrative computer career to pursue more meaningful work. At the time, my life felt empty and unsatisfying and I went thru some very difficult times. I have found my mission in life through my work as a therapist.

Child and Family Therapy

My other specialty is child and family counseling. I helped New Paths Family counseling equip their office with thousands of dollars of tools and equipment designed just for kids. We have an entire room dedicated with these resource to help aid in the process of child counseling. We have different custom designed approaches for teenagers, tweens and small children.
