I am a couple and family relationship expert. I have the most advanced training available and 15 years of experience assisting individuals, couples, and families with some of the most challenging and unique relationship problems. Most counselors have received a two-year masters-degree. In addition to a masters degree, I also received a post-degree certificate and a doctorate. These additional degrees brought me six more years of specialized training than most counselors in the area. You won't find a more well educated counselor in Southeast Alaska.

I am thoroughly trained in the latest research-based approaches for couples and families. I have repeatedly seen that the most successful couples overcome the challenges they face when they are provided with the best information, tools, and skills. I can help provide you with those. 
I am a directive counselor who will give you feedback, ideas, and tools. We will customize the tools to fit with your unique situation. We will also spend time practicing implementation to ensure they leverage the most change possible. 
 Some examples of my relevant experience, training. and expertise:
  • PhD in marriage and family therapy
  • Masters degree in marriage and family therapy
  • Post-degree certificate in medical family therapy
  • Licensed marital and family therapist
  • I have assisted thousands of individuals, couples, and families with a wide range of relationship and mental health challenges
  • Former faculty member specializing in family relationships at Utah State University
  • Former instructor for Kansas State University
  • I have served on many advisory boards for family services, educational, and healthcare organizations
  • As a nationwide couples counseling expert I was invited to travel the country for several years training therapists on the keys to counseling couples
  • I have supervised marriage and family therapists in-training from Utah State University, Kansas State University, Argosy University, and NorthCentral University. 
  • I have been widely published in magazines, self-help sites, and academic journals
  • I have been featured as a counseling expert on television and radio stations 
  • I have managed a several large networks of counselors in several states 

Though my experience and training is thorough. I am most proud of my family. I am a husband and father of three children. My wife and I have two decades of experience implementing the skills I bring to couples and families. I also love to spend time in the great outdoors of Juneau. I can often be seen traversing the streets and trails of southeast Alaska with my dog Louie, fishing with my sons, or photographing the historic and forgotten structures that dot the Juneau landscape.
