  7. Reap the Rewards:

  8. Increased Intimacy,

  9. Honesty, Awareness,

  10. and Joy in Your Relationships

  1. Unresolved conflict breeds tension, contempt and distancing. Living with tension

  2. is harmful, not only emotionally, but, when left untended, physically and spiritually

  3. as well. An experienced, neutral, third party can help troubled friends, co-workers,

  4. couples and families restore the joy in their relationships.

“My work with troubled relationships has its origins in the addiction field where the

progressively destructive nature of addiction is no more evident than the harm

it does to relationships. I now apply those skills to my private practice counseling, as well as in my “Tune-up for Couples” and the “Family Insight Workshop. No  issue is too big or too small to transform into life-sustaining movement and most can be resolved in a relatively short amount of time, free of conflict.”
