Damian founded the Center for Marriage & Family Relationships in 2000. His interest in counseling goes back to his undergraduate education while studying business at the University of Houston.
In the early 1990s, Damian helplessly watched the tragic and unnecessary destruction of a family with children by a misguided spouse facilitated by an unethical psychotherapist and supported by a sterile Family Law Court, as well as several other cases involving affairs, and he began his quest to learn the causes of such insanity.
Inspired by Joseph Campbell’s wisdom, his counsel to ‘follow your bliss,’ and the evolutionary psychology of the Hero’s Journey, Damian eventually found his Mission in life – to save families (especially, but not only, with kids) from the dangers of the global divorce culture by furnishing couples with the best in relationship counseling and education.
In order to offer the very best service in couples and family relationship counseling, he stays on top of the latest advances in his profession through continuing education in both Imago and relevant cutting-edge therapy modalities. He has longed served as Chairman of Imago International’s Professional Training & Standards Committee, and is a close, personal friend of the founders of Imago, Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. and Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D.
