Hi! It’s me, Doug!

I have had the opportunity to help many individuals better themselves as parents and spouses. The sacred role of walking with someone or a couple through their hurt is often met with the reward of seeing them connect more to themselves and others.

Couples counseling can help your relationship by removing some of the anger from arguments, resentment from fights, and isolation from alone-time. At the same time, it increases intimacy, strengthens communication, and cultivates the happiness that feels like it’s missing.

I invite you to reach out to me to join you on your journey to healing and wholeness.

“I should have gone to see him sooner”

“I saw Doug after losing my house and business in one of the wildfires. I was suffering from depression. I had never seen a therapist or counselor before and was very skeptical. Also, I knew I would only feel comfortable if they had a biblical foundation. Doug was just that. I had no reason to be nervous. He mainly just listened and gave me space to talk which helped uncover some root issues that needed to be addressed. He was a tremendous help. I should have gone to see him sooner in hindsight.”
