Experienced Relationship Counseling

I offer relationship counseling for couples, and also for individuals who are in a relationship and need a safe, confidential space to explore their struggles and questions about the relationship.

Relationships are complicated and sometimes we need an objective voice to help us see what is true. Using a set of time-tested criteria for healthy relationships, I can usually see the deeper truth about the relationship within 15 minutes of our session.

My relationship-counseling approach is based on a proven, researched set of criteria about a) the main strengths a relationship must have to survive, b) the major red flags that spell doom for a relationship, and c) the difficulties that can be improved in a relationship IF there is enough compatibility and both people are willing to work on themselves. 


A Therapist Who Is Practical and Realistic

While other therapists demonstrate blatant favoritism and biases, or a weak, politically correct "No one is ever wrong" approach, I can help you to see what is really going on and what you can do about it. I will do my best to reflect the nuanced truth of the situation, for all parties. 

Seeing the Truth Can Save You Years of Suffering

If you're struggling to see the truth about your relationship - and also trying to figure out what to do about it - then I would be glad to help you.


I feel honored to hear the hidden fears, complaints and hopes that each person holds in a relationship - so that these can be used to improve the bond, or to know when to leave. 

I have guided people through most every kind of relationship issue - to a better outcome and a happier life.


Here are some common relationship questions that I help men figure out.

  • How do I deal with this current conflict we keep having?

  • Are we compatible enough for the long term?

  • Is it time to break it off and how would I know?

  • How can I approach dating in a more effective way?

  • How do I get over this break-up / divorce?

Every relationship is unique. I will help you assess the strengths and weaknesses of your relationship, identify red flags and see if it can be improved or it's time to part.

Love Is Complicated
I know how much is at stake, and I understand that love is complicated. My aim is to quickly assess your history, your core conflicts and possible solutions.


I am here to help you find clarity. I will help you sort through the chaos and teach you the tools to create a great relationship. That involves uncovering what is most important to you, where you want to go, and what has been holding you back.

​Yes, both partners usually contribute to a problem, but I can help you figure out who's doing what, and how to change it for the better.
