Start Here

Welcome to and thank you for stopping by! 
You're probably here because you're either starting marriage and want to do things right or you're struggling in your marriage and looking for help. 
My mission is to reduce the divorce rate one marriage at a time. Therefore, you've come to the right place! My entire website is aimed at improving your relationship, regardless if you are newly engaged or are in desperate need of marriage counseling. This page will show you how to get started!
Step One
STEP ONE: The fist step is to spend some time getting to know me and my story. We often feel more comfortable receiving advice from someone we know. In a nutshell, I'm a licensed psychologist in Boulder, Colorado. I've been in private practice since 2004 and I specialize in marriage counseling. I've also been married since 1999 and my own relationship has been to the brink of divorce and back so I help couples from both a personal and professional perspective. I know what it feels like to be resentful and hopeless but I also know what it feels like to heal and fall back in love. Check out my about page to learn more about me and my passion for helping couples. 
step two
STEP TWO: You're not alone in your quest to have a good marriage. Hence, the 50% divorce rate. However, it's easy to feel isolated and like there's no one to turn to. Therefore, be sure to join our community to feel supported and connected with others striving toward the same relational goals as you.
The first way to be part of the community is to sign up for my newsletter below. 
The second way to be part of the community is to follow me on Facebook or Instagram. I post several times a day most days of the week so it's a wonderful way to receive regular marital tips throughout your busy day. I also go live on both my Facebook and Instagram accounts every Saturday at 12noon MST to answer any marriage questions you may have so be sure to tune in!
The third way to be part of the community is to subscribe and become a regular listener of my Marriage Steps Podcast. I usually produce the podcast once a week and it's filled with practical insights on how to better your relationship. You can either listen to my marriage podcast or watch it on my YouTube channel. 
step three
STEP THREE: Now for the good stuff, how to start building your marriage! I provide three levels of interventions outlined below. 
Level one intervention is beginning with my marriage blog for articles on how to strengthen your relationship with an assortment of interesting topics. You'll also want to read my article on the top six steps to marital satisfaction, which undergirds all of my teaching on marriage. Below are some popular posts to get started with. 
Level two intervention is my marriage book, app, and tools. My marriage book is called Total Marriage Refresh and covers my six steps to marital satisfaction in great detail, including case studies, exercises, and everything you need to know on marriage. My couples app is called Keep the Glow and will show you the top method for developing and sustaining a fulfilling relationship. My marriage tools will help you learn how to handle common challenges in marriage. There are ten tools to choose from depending on what you need the most help with.  
Level three intervention is signing up for my marriage retreat and/or marriage counseling. My marriage retreat, which is done live through Zoom during COVID, is an entertaining, interactive experience to receive concentrated help for your marriage. The conference includes six sessions and each one includes me teaching for roughly 45 minutes followed with couples applying what was discussed for 30 minutes. The presentations are filled with stories, humor, and videos and there's no group sharing. My marriage counseling is for couples needing individualized care on a regular basis. Sessions are typically every week for 45 minutes or 1.5 hours and are tailored to the needs of the couple. Most couples attend marriage counseling for roughly 6 months to heal resentments and develop new patterns of interaction. 
If you have any questions please fill out the contact form and I'll be in touch shortly. 
I look forward to journeying along side you on the matrimony trail!
