Michael Brooke
I grew up in the Big Sky Country of Montana. Activities like rafting, camping, and fishing were an important part of my childhood. I also liked some activities that were a little unusual for a Montana boy like gymnastics, piano, and role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons. Sometimes, I got teased for those kinds of “quirky” interests, which I definitely didn’t like. It’s not a fun feeling when you don’t fit in. However, as I grew up, I was also able to learn some skills for making friends a .....more»

Some therapists immediately advise couples that their ailing relationship cannot be saved. If you will come in and let me help, you are likely to be surprised with the positive results.

Since 1980 I have seen thousands of individuals and couples seeking to have happier moods and healthier relationships. I specialize in rel .....more»
