Enhancing understanding and intimacy

drguy-photo-01

For more than two decades I have been helping people become all they can as individuals and members of intimate relationships. As a psychologist, sex and marital therapist, professor and author, I have tried to spread the message that successful and satisfying lives are the result of self-creation rather than the result of chance. When you have been taught the required skills, there is every reason to believe that you too can produce both an extraordinary life and satisfying relationship!
