Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist | MA, LMFT
I provide remote services only
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and the founder and former Clinical Director of Restoration Counseling Service. I am currently working as a marriage coach with my husband of nearly 40 years. We work with a couple as a couple and find this both effective and enjoyable.
We know how you feel.
You feel tired of working so hard on your marriage with little or no positive change. You certainly want something to change, but you aren’t sure what needs to change, and you may not have the energy to change it if you were to know what needs to change.
You think, “Where did this all begin to go off track and down this lonely and difficult road?” And, “What if we can never get back to where we should be?”
We know how you feel for two reasons:
First, we have been there too. We had to work hard to discover bad relational habits, unlearn what we thought was true, and roll up our sleeves to do the work — because getting our marriage in a better place was what was best for us, our kids, our community, and most of all as image bearers of God.
Second, we have used those skills and many more for over 25 years to help other Christian couples climb out of the “dreadful marriage pit” into a much better place.
1. We have proven to ourselves and those around us that we can have a great marriage. 👩🏻🤝👨🏼❤️
2. We have helped hundreds of other couples do the same. ☺️
3. We can help you too. We can help, and we will help! 🙌🏼
Keep in mind that the two of us have a “statistical disadvantage” when it comes to being married. This is because all of the statistics that factor in family of origin research say the two of us should no longer be married, let alone happily married, yet we beat those odds. And, if we can do it, you can do it too, and we can show you how.
Between the two of us, we have backgrounds in clinical psychology, pastoral counseling, marriage mentoring, parenting, church planting, church leadership, premarital counseling, and more.
But still, your marriage challenges feel very unique to you. And even though they feel unique, your challenges are actually not entirely unique.
We have been working with couples for over 25 years and when we say that we have seen it all, we mean it. Here is an abbreviated list of the marriage challenges we have helped couples to work through:
• Communication challenges
• Conflict and escalating tension in a marriage
• Intimacy struggles
• Lying and trust issues
• Different life goals
• Parenting challenges
• Lack of support for each other
• and more…
Yes, we can help you too. If you want a marriage that honors God better than what you are doing now, we can help!
