Welcome to our website. I am Richard Martin, D.Min. (Doctor of Ministry in Psychology), director of A Center for Transforming Relationships.
I love helping people. Many years of life-experience––of study, of training, of work with a wide variety of clients and situations, including my own marriage and parenting––have given rise to my working motto: “The unsolvable is solvable.”
Seeking help with the stresses of life is a sign of courage and intelligence, not of weakness. We are here to help each other..
I find great joy in assisting…
• You as an individual––to ease fears, to relieve sadness
(including loss of loved ones), to manage anger, to dispel
guilt––in general to erase bad memories and move forward
with a light heart to fulfill your purpose for being here.
• You as a couple––to resolve conflicts peacefully, to
rediscover play, and to restore romance in your lives
to a higher level than ever. • You as a family––to reduce conflicts, to solve problems,
to achieve family cooperation and plan for your family to
As a mediator, I assist the people of your organization, business, religion, culture, or nation:to rise above competition, to appreciate one another as sacred/equal individuals, to compromise creatively, to reach mutually-satisfying agreements, to plan collaboratively, and to work as teams,helping one another to make a better world.
I measure the strength of my commitment to helping people in part by my willingness
to spend a month every summer for the last 10 years teaching and practicing peacebuilding
in Israel/Palestine––that hotspot of world hostilities. I have confidence in the value
of doing this because of my feeling of success at resolving relationships, promoting
harmonuy, and encouraging inner peace here.
I am pleased to invite you into this creative world. Call me, and let's see how I can help you.
