Stay or Go Decisions
Ending a long term relationship is a pivot point for your life. Partners will be effected. Kids might be involved. Sometimes there are friends and family involved. You might have business concerns to consider. Clients come to me when something has to change. I can either work with you and your partner towards developing a healthier relationship or help create a plan to say goodbye.
Infidelity isn’t just a sexual transgression. Emotional affairs, digital cheating, financial betrayal, and out-of-control sexual behaviors are also considered issues of infidelity. If you or your partner are currently having issues with infidelity we can work through these issues together.
Sex is rarely talked about, whether you are in a straight or LGBTQIA relationship. Stress, mismatched libido, body image, entitlement, age, and trauma all impact a healthy sexual relationship. Sex therapy and education are fundamental to our best sexual selves. I can help create a safe space to work through your issues and build a better sex life.
Bad fighting equals a bad relationship. There are always problems within a relationship, but learning how to solve or manage the problems together are key to a successful and healthy partnership. I can teach you how to communicate your needs better using good complaining skills and understand your partner’s needs through effective listening skills.
Once I was a codependent person with Major Depressive Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Today, I’m in remission thanks to a great team and regular work.
My own therapy was essential to my recovery. I’m a believer in the process so I’m dedicated to working with others. You can do this work too. Your life and your relationships can be better.
I’m a Gen X, cisgendered, heterosexual white guy. I’m a clinical social worker licensed in Texas and in Colorado. I’m a psychotherapist. I work with people who want better relationships.
I’ve been practicing privately since 2006. Work with me face-to-face in Houston, TX or Telluride, CO. Work with me online wherever you are on VSee.
Prior to opening my psychotherapy business I was a staff social worker at The Menninger Clinic in Houston, TX. I did family therapy as part of their adolescent treatment team. I was a behavior therapist for adolescents in their Obsessive Compulsive Disorders treatment program.
I have a bachelors degree is in business from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX. My Master of Business Administration and Master of Social Work are from the University of Houston. I completed fellowships at the Baylor College of Medicine, the Menninger Clinic, and the Houston/Galveston Psychoanalytic Institute. I trained at the Gottman Institute in Seattle, WA up to level three (their are four) and I’m a member of Esther Perel’s online training salon called Sessions.

I was a business person before I was a psychotherapist. I started my career at my third generation family business as the Director of Human Resources. Later I led a group of environmental testing laboratories in the early 2000s. I returned to run the business after my parents died. I’m happy that the business is still going strong.
I’m also the author of the self help book The Art of Meaningful Living. It was published in 2009 and sold dozens of copies nationwide.
