About Doug

After 42 years of marriage to my incredible wife Shirley, 9 children, and 6 grandchildren; I have learned a few things about how to build a happy marriage.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Illinois whose passion is working with couples to help them live the married life that God intended from the beginning. I believe at the core of every human being is the need to form safe emotional connections with the significant others in our lives. But, due to our fallen human nature, our unmet emotional needs often lead to negative patterns of interaction that bring pain to our relationships. Identifying these negative interaction patterns and helping couples replace them with positive ones is the heart of my approach.

I am excited to work with clients in ways that integrate the science of psychology with what my Catholic Christian faith has taught me about God’s grand design for His people, especially within the dynamic of marriage and family life. Because of this passion for the sanctity of marriage, I limit my practice strictly to individuals and couples seeking help with their marriages.

I meet clients who reside in Illinois in the comfort of their own homes through the exclusive use of tele-therapy.

My approach is highly directive using a combination of the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Forgiveness Therapy. Couples are expected to set aside time each day to work on healing their marriage.
