You don't think marriage improvement is a life-long journey and have set a deadline in your mind for when your relationship must change.
You're not willing to devote 30 minutes a day, five days per week, for three weeks, to learn strategies that successful couples use to stay balanced when they are in conflict or under stress from parenting, career, or financial struggles.
You're not teachable and feel you have nothing to learn from a marriage therapist who has devoted his career to studying what affects the long-term outcome of committed relationships.
You blame outside influences for your failures, instead of commiting to understand these forces and use them to your advantage.
You don't want to have smaller emotional "buttons" that are pushed by your partner over the course of your relationship, making you react in predictable and unwanted ways.
You want to use the information you learn in this course to teach your partner how he or she needs to mature or be a better person.

Since I work with people all over the world, most of my sessions are conducted over the phone or secure internet connection. Let's talk!
My offices are in Washington, DC, and Bethesda, MD. If you want to travel to me or if you live nearby and want to meet, let's make it happen!
I make "house calls," which means that I travel to your location and lead you and your spouse through a private full-day intensive. This is a transformational intervention and there's no substitute for me spending an entire day face to face with you and your spouse helping you get to the root of your problems and creating a breakthrough that will put your marriage on a new path.
We can meet at your home, at a hotel suite near your local airport, or any mutually agreed upon site.
Depending your location and flight schedules, the intensive usually lasts 6-8 hours.
In the United States and Canada, sites west of Denver require at least a 2 day booking. Sites east of Denver is usually doable in 1 day. Outside the United States depends on flight schedules. For example, the United Kingdom is a 3 day booking (1 day in session). Australia is a 5 day booking (1 day in session).
I take only 3 VIP Access clients at a time.
As a VIP Access client, you get my cell phone number and personal email address. You have "911" access to me 24/6.
If I’m not available when you contact me, I’ll get back to you as soon as possible, usually within an hour, and guaranteed by the end of the day.
Fee is payable in advance, good for 30 days, and you get the right of first renewal. Limit: 10 hours/month.
You can reschedule or cancel private sessions without penalty by calling my office at 202.602.6014 within the following time frame. Private tele-sessions and office visits require 7 days notice. Full day intensive house calls require 15 days notice and you remain responsible for non-refundable travel expenses. VIP Access is non-refundable.
1) Watching a 1-minute animated video explaining the day's main topic, such as "Staying centered when your partner is off-balance."
2) Read a short lesson about the topic (3-5 pages).
3) Listen to a 20-minute guided meditation. Not into meditation? Don't worry! There's no pan flutes and you don't need to wear yoga pants. This is a scientifically-based program designed especially for skeptics of mindfulness/meditation.
4) Answer questions at the end of the lesson that are designed to keep your attention where it needs to be for you to overcome mental habits that keep you from getting the kind of partnership and intimacy you need in your relationship.
