Want to improve your marriage in a month, but don’t know how? Well, I do!

After the first session you will have an understanding of your underlying patterns and issues, a prioritized plan for repairing the damage, hope for improving your emotional closeness, and a new perspective on your relationship.

I’ll get to the heart of the matter quickly and through your goals with insight, enthusiasm and positivity.

90% of my practice is specializing in couples therapy and relationship issues.

With 40 years’ experience and advanced training and certifications in couples therapy, I use Accelerated Couples Therapy with the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Real Life Therapy, as well as psychodynamic and positive psychology interventions.

I’ll collaborate with you in a genuine, direct and humorous style, not wasting time and providing homework to practice your communication and relationship skills.

Most of my couples see the improvement they want in 3 to 6 months of weekly and alternating week therapy sessions. I also provide accelerated sessions and private Marriage Retreats.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, certified coach, best-selling author, and nationally recognized relationship expert featured on radio and television. I’ve helped thousands of couples over the last 40 years find love and happiness again.

I’ve dedicated my career to developing the skills necessary to help couples save their relationships fast. Using Accelerated Couples Therapy, my clients can accomplish months of therapy quickly.

My 90% success rate makes me an in-demand therapist for celebrity and high-profile professionals. Clients have flown into Las Vegas to work with me from all over the US, Europe, and the Middle East.
