Tell us a little about yourself and your company?
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and owner of The Marriage and Family Clinic in Denver, CO where I specialize in marriage counselling. I never imagined myself specializing in marriage counselling when I was going to school but as soon as I started seeing couples I knew there was a lot of work to be done. There’s not a lot of good information out there for couples on how to make a relationship work. Everyone’s heard to make sure you do a date night and don’t go to bed angry but couples need better information than this. That’s what I’m trying to do. I give couples legitimate relationship information – without the psycho-babble.
Where are you based?
My clinic is in Denver, Colorado. But I also write for several blogs and websites like Colorado Parent Magazine, Singles Warehouse and I have recently been appointed as Editor for the Marriage section of The Good Men Project.
What do you love about what you do?
I love helping couples create relationships that last. I love helping couples get past themselves and get into a relationship that is loving, caring and safe. Whenever there are relationship problems there’s usually some kind of baggage that both partners are bringing into the relationship. As a counselor, I get to help them sort through that baggage so that they can be more available to their partner and create a safe and sound relationship. There’s nothing more rewarding in my work than successfully terminating with a client.
What’s your best bit of dating advice?
What else should we know?
Relationships aren’t simply testing people to see how they make you feel. You’re the one who should be fulfilling your own emotional needs in that sense. When you love who you are, you don’t need a partner because you’ll never be lonely just being with yourself. When you accomplish that, then it’s time to start looking for a mate.
