For thirty years, Joe has helped "Kids and Couples" as he likes to say. He loves to work with couples who are experiencing challenges in their marriage or relationship. Joe works with couples to find ways to make their marriage work. He teaches good communication skills, ways to learn and meet the needs of your mate, and takes the couple on a journey to look back at the family you grew up in as a way to understand how you now function in your marriage. When appropriate, Joe helps you utilize your spirituality as a means to strengthen yourself and your relationship.
Joe also helps parents manage the behavior of their children as well as working directly with children and teens. He has consulted and taught classes for parent organizations, churches and schools. Since 2002, he has been working with children who have ADD/ADHD, Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, and Sensory Processing deficits as well as children who just need positive and consistent parenting. More recently Joe has added staff at Chico Creek Counseling to assist with the volume of parents and families who need help with their relationship.
