About Me

Hello,

I've been a professional counselor for over 27 years working with couples , families , blended families and extended families in finding ways to improve communication , understanding and in many cases renew a greater level of intimacy and marital satisfaction. Having worked for nearly a decade with active military families on active duty around the country serving in combat theaters around the world I have gained a tremendous amount of valuable experience in the areas of Marital stress, fear of loss, extended absenteeism and infidelity. On the civilian side, I have worked for over 20 years with professional families and couples at some of the most innovative sites in the country, spending twelve years as the senior EAP and employee crisis counselor at the National Institutes of Health. Helping people repair, strengthen or resolve relationship difficulties has been some of the most rewarding work I have had the pleasure of experiencing and I look forward to making that experience available to you

Best therapist I have ever had. Craig is one of those people you could talk to for hours. He is amazing at listening, validating feelings, making you laugh, encouraging, and offers profound advice. Could not recommend him strongly enough!!!

Craig really tailors his expertise to his individual clients. He’s an exemplary active listener. Furthermore, his personal anecdotes are treasures in themselves: Craig has worlds of experience in different fields, which propels his ability to make personable and empathetic connections. Craig is solution and big picture oriented. More therapists should be like Craig- we all deserve an end game, not in the interest of perpetual treatment. Craig really cares, and I’m lucky he is my therapist.

Craig is really great at listening to our issues and trying to make sure we are listening to each other as well and tracking to what the other person is saying. Communication skills is an important in a relationship and Craig has been helpful in making sure our communication skills improve.

Craig has been an amazing support to my husband and I. He's understood in the first message what it was that we needed and is allowing us both the room to learn how to communicate with each other better. I would highly recommend working with Craig. He's very personable and for anyone cautious of therapy because of a fear of superiority from their counselor you will not find that in Craig.
