As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I can help you resolve issues that are disrupting you relationship or holding you back in from connecting with appropriate life partners.
Many people are experiencing the devastation of iporn-online pornography, chat rooms, escort and massage services- and other compulsive sexual behaviors. These compulsive behaviors can cause impotence, relationship crisis, depression and anxiety, job loss and legal problems. As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and Marriage and Family Therapist, I can help you overcome sex addiction and get your life back on track. See my book, The Storm of Sex Addiction available at www.amazon.com for more information about iPorn and sex addiction and details about my outpatient treatment program- STARPRO and other relationships services.

Every person deserves Dignity and Respect. We all sometimes need help. A different perspective and a reason for Hope can be important goals of counseling. We all approach life doing "The Best We Can". Thoughts, Feelings, and Behaviors all influence how we are doing. I have been in practice for 20+ years and works with individuals and families. I have experience working with the children/ teens, juvenile court system/probation, youth who sexually harm, Marital/family conflict, and behavioral/parenting issues. I am also a member of the Nebraska Academy of Collaborative Professionals and am trained in mediation.

I have a full and deep life of experience to draw from in meeting my clients in sacred space. The loss of a son, a marriage, a career, accumulated material rewards, and most importantly, the potential of life unlived; dreams unfulfilled. This is soul work. Prepared by the vulnerability of my story, I hold insight and compassion for those whose burdens must be eased into, passed through, and reborn into new purpose, for the quality of our life is in our overcoming. Navigating the troubled waters of depression, anxiety, relational fissures, and archetypal energies is the first threshold of a healing journey.

I love working with clients who are navigating life transitions, such as emerging adulthood (ages 20-30), marriage, pregnancy and postpartum, divorce, grief and loss.
At Revision Psychotherapy, I believe that the stories we create, or have been told, about who we are as individuals have a strong influence on our daily lives. They affect our habits, our relationships, our self-concepts, and our choices. These narratives can empower, or they can imprison - but no story is written in stone, and no ending is predetermined. At Revision Psychotherapy, I am committed to helping you tell your story, examine your story, and, if necessary, rewrite your story. My goal for you to is to achieve a sense of autonomy—of being the author of your own life story rather than a character in it.

I've studied with Ellyn Bader (The Couples Institute); Markman, Notarius & Stanley (Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program); Harville Hendrix (Getting the Love You Want); David Olson (PREPARE & ENRICH); John Gottman; Sherod & Phyllis Miller (Couple Communication); Michele Weiner-Davis (Divorce Busting); Michael & Harriet McManus (Marriage Savers).
Since 1990 I've helped couples create loving, lasting relationships. A premarital inventory (FOCCUS or PREPARE) pinpoints relationship strengths, and helps resolve conflicts. PREP communication and problem-solving skills help you find win-win solutions. PREP Couples have greater satisfaction and 1/2 the risk of divorce. If you feel like giving up, couple counseling identifies the real problems and how to resolve them. If kids are driving you crazy, "Love & Logic" keeps you calm & kind as kids develop respect, responsibility & self-esteem. Individual counseling helps overcome anger, depression, fears, stress; and develop assertiveness, self-esteem, social comfort, willpower.

Marriage Counseling Therapists

How does marriage counseling work?

Marriage counseling works by teaching couples concrete skills to communicate with one another and solve disagreements in healthy ways. A trained mental health professional works with both members of a couple to explore difficulties the couple may be having and helps them develop skills to address these matters. Couples who don’t have any difficulties but want to prepare for marriage may develop skills for the future.

How long does marriage counseling typically last?

Marriage counseling is a short-term form of therapy; the process may last between four and eight sessions. Other forms of relationship guidance from mental health professionals, such as couples therapy, are longer lasting, may focus on the past rather than just the present, and are tailored to the individual couple and their emotions, history, and patterns in the relationship. Couples therapy often lasts for 12 weeks or longer.

Is marriage counseling effective?

Marriage counseling helps many couples develop relationship skills that may not have been acquired or tested in a relationship; partners may be better able to communicate and address conflict following counseling. However, there are many different forms of marriage counseling, and this form of counseling does not have as strong an evidence base as other modalities such as couples therapy.

Is marriage counseling effective if only one partner wants to go?

Yes, marriage counseling can still be effective if one partner convinces the other to engage in the process. Of course, whether counseling is effective depends on the couple’s commitment to work on their relationship; however, the short-term, skills-based nature of marriage counseling makes it a relatively easy “ask” of a partner, and the hesitant individual may see its value once counseling begins.
