Let's stop the fighting
Hello, I’m Jason.
When couples come to see me they are often at their wits end. They are having lots of unpleasant fights and these fights may result in fearing the relationship is coming to an end. Some of the things they tell me are…
“I’m always watching out for the next sneak attack”
“Whenever we fight he says hurtful things and runs”
“She pins all of this on me”
“I feel like we have settled down in suburbia. The passion is gone.”
“I feel like giving up on everything”
Here’s how I work
My first task is to turn down the temperature so that you can talk to one another. I have developed a program to encourage you to do the work of fixing things together. When you go through my program you will be able to...
Talk about things without worry
Compromise while getting what you want and need
Avoid taking responsibility for things that aren’t yours
Have fun together even when things don’t go perfectly
Keep passion alive
… and so much more
My mission is to help you to develop the skills to be able to talk effectively even when you are angry with one another. I have a lot of experience over the years helping angry adolescents and young adults to manage the overwhelm that comes with feeling like no one is on their side. I graduated from John F. Kennedy University in 2005 with an MA in Counseling Psychology, became licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist in California in 2013, and then in Nevada in 2022.
I'm part of the LGBTQIA+ community and I work well with polyamory, BDSM, and kink. I’m experienced with high conflict couples and couples where there is infidelity and addiction. I use the Gottman Method and I’m informed by Ellyn Bader’s Developmental Model when I work with couples.
As an individual therapist, I work relationally and provide tools to help people reduce symptoms related to depression, anxiety, and trauma. My philosophy is that people come to see me for specific issues and my job is to help them meet their goals for managing those specific issues. Once goals are reached, it’s time to graduate. Individual therapy doesn’t need to go on for years. Often 6 to 9 months are all that is needed for specific and targeted issues.
I’m always working on creating new and better ways to work with couples. Current projects include continued development of my programs; “Is our marriage salvageable or is it over?,” “Break the anger,” and “He never follows through.” Check this space for the latest updates.
