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?

My best advice is to go into a relationship with your eyes wide open and be yourself. In other words, value your date for who they really are – not who you want them to be. Once you start dating people with the intent to really get to know them (instead of how they make you feel) then you’ll find relationships that will take you to another level. You’ll find people who entrance you. They still have their bad qualities. And because you have your eyes wide open you’ll know when to exit those relationships sooner than later. But with your eyes wide open you’ll really get to know your date for who they really are. And when you fall in love you’ll fall in love with a fantastic person.
Also, be yourself. The only way for your date to enter into an honest relationship is for you to be who you really are. If they don’t like you then there’s no skin off your nose. There are plenty of fish in the sea. Being yourself ensures that you’re dating people who care about the real you. And when they fall in love with you they’ll fall in love hard also. And two people that madly in love make a great lifetime relationship.

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.
