Marriage and Family Counseling for You

Whether you and your spouse are simply looking to rekindle the romance of your honeymoon period, strengthen your communication skills, or address long-ignored subjects, I can help you. With over thirty years of experience in helping couples resolve their conflicts, I have established myself as one of the most trusted counselors in the area.

My services are not just for couples on the brink of separation—they’re for everybody. Everyone can benefit from counseling, and many of my clients are those whose relationships are already healthy and stable. Counseling isn’t just about repairing what has been broken.

Counseling can help you build the solid foundation you need, so your relationship never slips through the cracks again. What’s more, with counseling, you can develop the tools needed to repair minor problems when they arise.

Meet Your Marriage Counselor

For over 30 years, I have offered my counseling services to the people of Anchorage and beyond. Having earned my NASW license in 1987 and my Clinical Social Worker license in 1991, I help couples resolve myriad issues related to infidelity, interpersonal conflicts, blended families, and much more.

I’ve worked with military personnel, first nation’s couples, spouses struggling with addiction, and people from all other walks of life. Whoever I am working with, I always take an approach that fuses my clinical background with my compassionate nature. This makes my patients feel more comfortable sharing their thoughts and feelings with me—and with their spouses, too. 

Address All Your Marital Issues

Whether you’re in the healing stages after infidelity, or you are seeking to rekindle marital romance, I can help you. I have experience in providing professional guidance for a variety of issues, some of which include:

  • Blended family issues
  • Same-sex couples counseling
  • Re-building trust
  • Strengthening communicant skills

Together, we will identify and resolve the difficulties you are facing.

The Right Approach to Marriage Therapy

Though couples may endure similar issues, no two couples are the same. The dynamics of your relationship are composed of your upbringing, priorities, outside obligations, relationship history, and so much more.

This is why my approach is always customized and tailored just for you and your spouse. My aim is to understand what you are presently going through, but also what you have endured in the past, and where you want to be in the future.

Easy to Schedule Counseling Services

Counseling should be accessible to everyone in every way imaginable. With my flexible scheduling options, we can work through your relationship issues over stress-free intervals at a time most convenient for you.

Relaxed and Non-Judgmental Couples Counseling

Your counseling sessions are a time when you can speak your mind freely and without judgment. To maintain this neutral atmosphere, I will act as a mediator between you and your spouse. You’ll both have an opportunity to hear each other out and respond to what each has said.

The Local Marriage Counselor Who Cares

As a marriage counselor, I believe every partner has the right to have their thoughts and feelings heard and understood. I strive to develop a trusting and supportive relationship not only between you and your partner, but also with me.

What sets me apart from many other counselors is my empathy. I am committed to listening to every one of my clients and to addressing your needs and wants.

Every relationship requires a different approach. My services are individualized based on the specifics of your relationship and the issues you are facing. The following are some of the many problems I’ve helped couples overcome:

  • Affairs and Infidelity
  • Separation
  • Conflict Escalation
  • Seemingly-Irreconcilable Differences
  • Sexual Issues
  • Poor Communication
  • Family and Parental Issues

Free Initial Consultations for Marriage Counseling Services

If you’re seeking a counselor, you need someone you can trust.

I strive to build that trust with you as soon as you contact me. For that reason, I offer a free initial consultation for my counseling services: so that you know exactly how I will help you and your partner.

I will clearly identify the issues in your relationship, offer a prognosis, and explain to you how we will start repairing your relationship. I provide expert advice to my clients, and I assure you that you will find it effective in restoring your well-being.

Your Relationship Deserves the Best Couples Counseling

I’ve helped countless couples save their relationships when they had thought all hope was lost. And I can help you too.

My systematic approach to relationship issues has been shown to reduce your anger and frustration, build trust between you and your partner, and create a loving and fruitful relationship. I focus on developing effective coping strategies so that both of you feel empowered and confident in yourself and each other. You may have arguments, but we’ll turn them from hurtful fights into something constructive that only strengthens the bond between you.

Three Silent Signs You May Need to See a Marriage Counselor

Nowadays, so much of our communication is done on smartphones or through Instagram and Snapchat. So, with many intimate moments now being replaced by an emoji or impersonal text message, it is easy to see how cracks may begin to occur in a relationship. With that in mind, here are three subtle signs that your marriage may be in trouble and in need of professional help:

  1. Netflix Causes a Massive Fight: If it is becoming increasingly difficult for you and your partner to agree on something as simple as deciding on what Netflix special to watch, then this is clearly not a good sign. When small decisions like this are causing big problems, real issues are going to be very hard to address effectively.
  2. Your Conversations are Only via Emoji: If smiley faces and kiss emojis have replaced substantive messages of love and endearment, then this is another sign that something isn’t right with your marriage and you may need to seek professional counseling.
  3. Your Partner Always has a Headache: If moments of intimacy have become less and less common, then you may need to address the issue with the assistance of a professional rather than trying to do it yourself.

Here to Help

As anyone who has had the privilege of being married can confirm, a wedding day really is one of the most special days that any Anchorage couple will experience. Professing your love for the person you intend to spend the rest of your life with friends and family is a truly special experience and something that most people will cherish very closely. However, far beyond the obvious fairytale magic of your wedding day lies a world of commitment, sacrifice and compromise and, from time to time, difficult periods of conflict and uncertainty.

That is where we come in!
