One Couple
At A Time

Hey! It's Dr. J.

Your brain is involved in literally everything you do, think, and feel. I help my clients & customers maximize their wellness by teaching them how to have the healthiest brain possible. A healthy brain = a healthy relationship AND sex life.

I am one of less than 200 Certified Christian Sex Therapists currently in practice. I understand how important a healthy sexual relationship is in marriage and know how to help couples who are struggling in this area.

I received my doctorate in 2012 and currently hold a license to practice psychology in the state of Virginia. I understand concerns related to mental health and how these symptoms can impact relationships.

My expertise:

In fact, it was through the process of going through personal therapy that God began to show me that He is good, that marriage is good, and that sex is good. And I started to believe Him. All of this has grown into a conviction I now love imparting, which is that God chooses to help us learn more about him through marriage.  And in a healthy marriage, marital intimacy is Christ-reflective, healing, and restorative.

then I went through my own therapy. 

I have an interesting story, because unlike many of my classmates in Grad school, I never really intended on being a therapist. In fact, I actually started out wanting to earn a degree in youth ministry. I had a lot to learn back then. I was angry, bitter, and hurt from some bad relationships I had been in. But, over the course of my time in Bible college, I began to feel a stirring from God that he would use me and my personal experiences to give other couples hope. hope. 

My story really began the moment I decided I didn't want to be just a therapist. 

It has become clear to me that as a result of the changing culture we're in, changing dynamics (like social media), and changing landscapes of relationships, Christian couples have a heavy need for a Christ-focused form of treatment that integrates Scriptural principles AND scientifically sound, evidenced-based approaches to marriage help.

I also really want this information to be easily accessible to Christian couples that may not be able to attend couple sessions. 

i've been a therapist now for over a decade and what I've continually found in my work is that couple's concerns (especially with intimacy) can be quite complex.

The Hubs!

Because fighting is no fun. Because culture is changing at such a rapid pace, it's hard to keep up with how it's affecting us individually, not to mention relationally or collectively. And because we all deserve beautiful, healthy, hot, holy, kingdom marriages in a society moving further and further away from it. 

We are divinely crafted, and can't resort to being reduced to our longings for more intimacy in our marriages. 

i know it's time for something different. 

I serve couples with my robust resource library and my two helpful e-guides. I also have a podcast on the way and much more planned to serve couples in the future.  I wanted to create a place for couples to go to gain peace, understanding, education, and clarity in their marriage and intimacy.
