About Me

As a licensed marriage and family therapist of close to 20 years I have worked with 100's of couples. When couples are committed to each other they usually mean well and are well meaning. Yet, their communication seems to just miss the mark. Communicating effectively takes into account the sentence structure used, the choice of words used and the delivery of the communication. When we agree that the relationship is a marathon and not a sprint then space can be created to work on issues such intimacy and communication. Working with couples to create more options for fulfillment and meaning in their relationships through healthier communication is a cornerstone of couples counseling

Rodney helped to save our marriage. We're on a much better path now and probably couldn't have done it without counseling.

We think we have been with Rodney for a bit over two months by now.
He has great advice and has really helped us see the problems that we have in a different light than we used to do and that information has helped us a lot in such a short amount of time . We highly recommend him

My wife and I have only had one session with Rodney to date. Neither of us have any experience with any sort of counseling, so we don't have much to compare it to. I was extremely impressed with our first session with Rodney. It felt easy to speak during the entire session when normally I struggle to speak freely. Rodney also gave very good suggestions on things we could do to help improve our relationship. I am really looking forward to our next sessions and all of the sessions to follow.

Since joining regain, Rodney has been amazing. Our situation is a little crazy/unique as to why we started counseling, and he has continuously rolled with the punches and given us expert advise that we use now in our day to day lives. We greatly appreciate his time and everything he has done to help us so far. We continue to look forward working with him for as long as he advises necessary.
