I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist at Renew Counseling Associates in West Hartford, Connecticut.
After 50 years of marriage, my wife and I are still each other’s hero and best friend. Mind you, neither of us had the greatest start, so it’s been quite a journey. I have always cared deeply for the people who find themselves in one of life’s “no outlet” streets, especially when the pain centers around marriage and family relationships. During years of ministry and missionary experience I have counseled individuals and couples, and led seminars in many different settings. My worldview is Christian, but I am able to work sensitively with clients from any or no religious background.
Sexuality is at the core of our being, so helping people to become whole sexually is one of my major counseling interests. Many have been desperately wounded in this special, personal part of their identity. Others have been misinformed, and rapidly increasing numbers of adults and youth are falling into the trap of pornography and sexual addiction. Both men and women suffer the painful consequences of these distortions – but through caring therapy, many find a path to restoration.
