The shame, anger, and broken hearts of women whose marriages have been plagued by the INFIDELITY of a pornography addiction are crushing. Or maybe you have been experiencing the slow and steady shift from lovers to roommates in your MARRIAGE.   Maybe you are the husband who loves your wife and children, but are stuck in a PORNOGRAPHY addiction that is draining your motivation and confidence.  Perhaps your ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AGE CHILD is shutting down or having anger outbursts at home, school, or both. Using evidence-based tools, I can help you discover the individual healing and couple connection you seek in a confidential, safe environment.

INFIDELITY
Discovering a husband’s pornography addiction is crushing. You can’t sleep. Why would the person you love do this to you? Nothing you say or do makes any difference. There is no trust – they have become a manipulative liar. There is no one to talk to. It is a nightmare you hope to wake up from. Searing anger mixes with suffocated self-worth – maybe if only I were better he would stop. Hopelessness steals every ounce of joy and fear of possible consequences drive you to near-panic. Perhaps hardest of all is accepting that this secret pattern has been going on for years. The result is a silent black hole that you cannot escape.

While they are many resources for men struggling with pornography, there are virtually none for their wives. Consequently, I have focused my efforts on acquiring evidence-based tools to help women heal and find peace.

You have done everything you know how to help your husband. Please reach out today so you no longer have to carry this burden alone and instead be helped to heal and find peace.

MARRIAGE

Discovering that you’ve become roommates instead of lovers is demoralizing. You can’t help but think of what it would like to be with someone else. What happened to your marriage? Every time you reach out they shut you down. There is no trust – they have become selfish and critical. There is no one who understands what it’s like to be married to them. You start to wonder if it’s just not meant to be – maybe if I could start over it would work out. You start to panic – this might be your last chance to get out and try again before it’s too late. The situation becomes a black hole you cannot escape.

So far, using available resources to help your marriage has not worked. I’ve observed this in many couples, so I have focused my efforts on acquiring evidence-based tools to help couples learn how to really hear one another and reconnect emotionally and sexually.

You have done everything you know how to help your marriage. Please reach out today so you can move away from being roommates and embrace the passion of lovers!

PORNOGRAPHY

Accepting that you have a pornography addiction that is suffocating your wife and poisoning your relationship with her is crushing.  You can’t sleep.  Why do you do this?  Nothing you say to yourself or do for her makes any difference in your ability to escape.  She has no trust towards you – you have become a manipulative liar.  There is no one to talk to about how badly you want to quit.  It is a nightmare you hope to wake up from.  Searing anger mixes with suffocated self-worth – maybe if only I were stronger I could stop?  Hopelessness steals every ounce of joy, and fear of possible consequences drive you to near-panic.  Perhaps hardest of all is realizing that this secret pattern has been a problem for years.  The result is a silent black hole that you cannot escape.

While there are many clinicians available to help men who struggle with pornography, there are very few who approach this issue with an intentional inclusion of the man’s wife.  Consequently, I have focused my efforts on acquiring evidence-based tools to help both men and their wives – at the same time – heal and find peace.

You have done everything you know how to rid yourself of this plague.  Please reach out today so you no longer have to carry this burden alone and instead be helped to heal and find peace.

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AGE CHILD

Living with a young child who cannot seem to get along or obey is exasperating.  You can’t leave them alone for one second!  Why do they do this?  Nothing you say to them or do for them makes any difference in their behavior.  They seem to want to find ways to not listen and get in trouble! They have turned you into an impatient yeller! When you ask for advice from other parents, they share things you have already tried. It feels like a nightmare you hope to wake up from.  Frustration boils over into exasperation – you are at the end of your rope!  These maddening daily interactions make it difficult to see them as a little child and instead makes them look like a little tyrant who will not leave you alone!  Perhaps hardest of all is realizing that while you really do love them, you just do not know what to do to help them calm down.  The result is an angry black hole that you cannot escape.

While there are many clinicians available to help children behave better, there are comparatively fewer who approach this issue from the perspective of parenting. Consequently, I have used my years teaching a parenting class for Utah State University to focus my efforts on helping parents acquire evidence-based tools to help both their child and their relationship with that child to heal and find peace.

You have done everything you know how to help your challenging child.  Please reach out today so you no longer have to carry this burden alone and instead be able to bring harmony back into your home.
