This podcast is best for couples, relationships, PTSD and those who “rage against the dying of the light.” My area of expertise consists in helping with difficulties in relationships & social relationships. Such difficulties include finding and sustaining healthy partnerships.
Such difficulties include finding and sustaining healthy intimacy, healing from a painful break-up or divorce, recovering from major loss, and growing up in aversive childhood experiences, trauma and difficult circumstances. I am particularly suited to helping those who have cultivated their intellects and creativity but would now like to develop a greater awareness of their emotional world. (Neuroscience of Relationships, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gottman Method, CBT, DBT and EMDR).
Joe’s approach, I’m far from being the silent, blank therapist. I think my approach provides the richest and most depth and exploration of how we love, work, and play. I consider myself more of a process consultant and co-journeyman. I am also a 12 year military veteran and treat PTSD and transition.
I have developed brief 12-24 session relationship programs and intensives for couples to breakthrough the upper limit barriers that block them from experiences the love and intimacy both crave. My couples sessions range from 90-120 minutes and offer several couples weekend intensives for those wanting to go through a deep dive and Reboot Your Relationship.

What Does it Mean to be Trauma Informed?
Noticing and embracing that trauma is the expectation, not the exception – all beings experience trauma, just different levels – it doesn’t matter if you were or are drowning at 1 feet, 7 feet or 21 feet, you were drowning.
Awareness of how trauma effects the brain, body, spirit, sense of safety and security in the world
Asking “What happened to you?” versus “What’s wrong with you?”
Minimize re-victimization and facilitate recovery for all clients in the most culturally sensitive way we can, taking into account culture, race, gender, sexuality, spirituality, and other factors
Behaviors are understood not merely as complaints but as attempts to cope and survive
