Counseling for Life Transition, Marriage & Career

The week of February 12th, 2018. Would you like to improve your life and your relationships? Professional counseling and consulting can be a real help. There is no charge for a short discussion by text, phone or email. Simply tell us a little about what is going on for you. We will listen carefully to your concerns. After that, you can schedule a session if you wish to do so. Video conferencing and telephone counseling sessions are also available. 

Better Communication for Lower Stress Relationships

Marriage therapy helps you to lower your stress from marriage and partner communications breakdown, separation, divorce, loss of trust after affairs, or parenting disagreements. Richard Chandler, MA, LPC, does couples and marriage counseling for difficult relationship fractures, including infidelity, anger and conflict. He counsels teens and those experiencing life transition. Please see relationship and communication tips on our facebook page.
