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. Perhaps you best relate to parents with TEENS who favor Fortnite over family time. I specialize in these three areas, and using evidenced-based tools with a proven plan, you can discover the individual healing, couple connection, and family peace 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!

TEENS
Discovering that your son favors Fortnite over family time or that your daughter is fascinated with Facebook instead of real friends is maddening. What happened to your little children who idolized everything about you? Every time you bring it up they lash out. There’s no connection – they’ve become distant and detached. You start to wonder if you should just give up. You begin to fear that they have no future, and there’s nothing you can do to stop them from crashing over the waterfall and smashing on the rocks of life below. You do care about them, but you do not know what to do because they’re always on their phone!

So far, what you have tried to help your teen unplug and re-engage with the family has not worked. I’ve observed this in many families, so I have focused my efforts on acquiring evidence-based tools to help re-enthrone respect and connection over a focus on Fortnite or a fascination with Facebook.

You have done everything you know how to help your teen. Please reach out today to regain the happiness you enjoyed when they respected you and you felt connected!
