An unhappy marriage is miserable. A happy marriage is joyous. I love helping you change your marriage into that joyous one. Having done counseling for over 35 years & having been married for over 45 years, it is my true pleasure to guide you in ways of resolving even your worst conflicts in ways that can not only produce true peace, but can bring you closer to one another. Believe me, this is possible! If you feel despairing and like you've tried everything, I hope you will call & come see me, so that we can join together to give your marriage one more try. Hope is real. There's so much to gain by taking this one last risk.
But if there are factors that absolutely make living together impossible, then I want to help you either have a positive separation which will end in a happy reunion, or a divorce where you are respectful & kind with each other, thereby fulfilling your marital vows to love & cherish each other always. This reduces damage to each of you & to your children.
I can't wait to get to know you & join with you in this great endeavor of making your marriage one that can ride the ups & downs of life, with the two of you holding hands until death do you part. PS. Maybe your spouse is unwilling to come to counseling. That's okay. A listening ear can help. And you alone can accomplish much more than you might imagine.
