It takes a professional to understand one. Before I became a Marriage and Family Therapist & Owner of the Trinity Relationship Center, I spent more than 15 years as a Television News Producer, Licensed Realtor and Business Owner. I have been under pressure to coordinate live reports, re-organize the newscast and write a story during breaking news, bring a home to the closing table when things are falling apart and make decisions on the fly that could impact dozens of people. I can probably relate to the chaos you go through in your profession. Throughout my career as a Marriage and Family Therapist, I have helped numerous doctors, engineers, nurses, business owners, police officers and other professionals rebuild their relationships. Let me help you, the professional, as well.
