"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage."--Lao Tzu

"Thank you, Dr. Joe, for sharing your gifts with us. Thank you for being our eyes when we were so blinded with anger, that we could no longer "see" each other. Thank you for being our ears when we were so tired of listening, that we could no longer hear each other. And thank you for being our voice when we felt we could no longer be heard by the other."   Peter & Nancy

 "The first duty of LOVE is to listen".  Paul Tillich

"We loved having Dr. Joe officiate our wedding ceremony this past September. He seamlessly blended our different faith traditions into one beautifully cohesive ceremony, and everyone loved it!!! He was also great to work with in the couple's counseling sessions leading up to our wedding, providing my soon-to-be husband and I with valuable advice and tools for a happy marriage. Can't say enough nice things about him and would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat!"  Elizabeth & Jayme
