Tired of arguing? Tired of fighting?  Marriage problems? Spouse cheating? I believe in saving marriages and am convinced most marriage problems are solvable and intimacy can be restored......even if a spouse or partner does not agree!  I specialize in helping couples find solutions for staying together, recover from affairs and other infidelities, overcome the devasting effects of pornography and sex addiction, and recover from substance and behavior addictions.

My approach to counseling does not spend time dredging up the past or spending time talking about the past.  This approach focuses on solutions for today and the future and keeps you on your new path while discouraging looking back because you are not going that way.  My office offers comfortable surroundings and provides you with a safe, non-threatening environment for your challenging journey.  This results in a solution-focused experience that moves toward the fulfilling life you deserve.

Appointments can be made with me by calling 321-213-7370 or online by going to my website, www.earlledfordlcsw.com, and clicking on the "Secure Client Login" button.   When calling to make an appointment please have your insurance information available if you plan to use insurance.
