I have been teaching, coaching, mentoring and counseling couples for over 10 years. I earned my MA in counseling in 2001 from Western Seminary Seattle (now The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology). I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Washington.
I am a Certified Gottman Therapist specializing in evidence based couples therapy based on over 40 years of marital research. I have completed certification training for Bringing Baby Home and the Gottman 7 Principles Program. I am a PREPARE/ENRICH facilitator which may be of special interest to engaged couples.
Finally, I have been happily married to Rebecca for 16 of 17 years – year #8 was pretty rough. Together, we have been teaching & mentoring couples through classes and small groups at Bethany Community Church since 2005. We live in Seattle with our two daughters (6 & 10). We own a mini-van and most of the silverware we got as wedding presents.
