I have had experience working with families and couples mostly involving substance abuse issues. I have also worked with couples in situations such as household and child stresses and infidelity. As a husband and father, I understand the difficulties couples face. Family issues are very hard to deal with.
I find that couples are successful when they are able to be openminded and honest with themselves. Sometimes each individual must work on their perceptions to improve their relationship with each other. It is my goal to help couples live a happier life together.
I am available Tuesdays and Thursdays afternoons for live sessions. Each session is 30 minutes long. You are also welcome to message me with any questions at any time.

In terms of couples counseling, he prioritizes both individual's needs. He listens well and his intuition on problems is spot on. The advice he gives on exercises to overcome problems is fairly effective as well. He has evident experience with sufferers of PTSD and other mental health issues that makes sufferers of them more comfortable to discuss with Rick. I'd highly recommend him.
Rick has been great. He ask rather simple question that are very effective. I am amazed by this. We've been in couples counseling before with 4 counselors. I went from wanting a divorce to understanding my husband within one 30 minute session. We are excited to see how much we will grow with Rick's simplistic approach. Glad we were matched with him.
Rick is very helpful & responds very quickly.
