Dave Gutknecht LPC is a licensed counselor based in the Denver, CO area. Dave has more than 40 years experience in the areas of counseling and coaching. 


The past number of years Dave has witnessed how relationships are getting more difficult for many reasons, including pace of life and work, health, addictions, past hurts, lack of grace and forgiveness, peer pressure, abuse of social media, and simply the fear to openly communicate, share and trust.


Dave and his Relationship Steps team want to help you build or repair the relationship with your partner, whether you've just entered into a relationship, newly engaged, married, having issues with transparency or trust, or contemplating divorce. 

Communication is the Key

How you share and communicate together is the simply the key to your relationship thriving and not just surviving.
