Marriage and Pre-Marital Counseling

Marriage relationships are meant to be happy and stable. But sometimes things go wrong that just devastates your world. There is always hope, things can get better, and with professional help, it can. I have more than 20 years of counseling experience, working with individuals and with couples to help them transform their negative relationships to positive ones.  My focus is to help married couples regain or achieve an extraordinary level of harmony and intimacy in marriage, and I can help you transform yours.

I work with couples who are experiencing a negative spiral in their relationship, where mistrust, resentment, and frustration have taken over. I also work with couples who desire a Christian based marriage therapy.  My goal is to help couples rekindle their love and trust towards each other, and to their family, and regain the level of true commitment that they desire. Other relationship issues that might be of interest to seek my help include:

  • Intimacy problems

  • Affairs

  • Communication and conflict resolution problems

  • Grief and loss

  • Anger management

  • Work/life problems

  • Financial problems

  • Stress

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Premarital counseling


Prepare/Enrich is an evidenced based assessment tool that is used to help couples evaluate their married relationship as it relates to their challenging and changing environment.  This assessment tool has been used to help over 4,000,000 couples stabilize their marriage, or help those preparing for marriage.  Prepare/Enrich has proven to be a great help for couples who desire to  improve relationship satisfaction and success. 

With Prepare/Enrich I am trained and equipped to help married couples with their marital problems using a highly researched and evidenced base tool to bring positive outcomes. I also use Prepare/Enrich to work with pre-marital couples to help them identify, and process potential future problems before they occur, and guide them in developing the appropriate skills to resolve areas of difficulty.  

Desmond has also  completed the Level 1 training Gottman Method Couples Therapy, which is an evidenced based and effective therapy for marriage relationships. Please contact me to learn more.
