High conflict in marriage. Military and first responder marriages, or marriages in which at least one spouse serves as a police officer, firefighter, emergency medical technician (EMT) or related public-servant position, are at high risk for marital disharmony, infidelity and divorce. I specialize in working with first responders and their spouses. Trauma, infidelity, addictions, emotionally disconnected, are just a few of the common issues I see in my office. Depending on the damage done to the relationship and the baggage brought into the marriage, this will determine our course of action. Married to a LEO for 29 years, I know first-hand the unique challenges these types of relationships face. In our sessions I strive to create an environment where it's safe to be authentic and take off the mask. Without safety it's almost impossible to cultivate a trusting therapeutic relationship. One in which genuine transformation can take place.
