About Me

Dr. Dire is an Orthodox Catholic Priest and a Licensed Psychotherapist. He was elected a Clinical member of The American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, and a Clinical Member of The American Association of Pastoral Counselors (Now ACPE).

Dr. Dire maintains a busy clinical practice. He works with people of all religious faiths, those who claim to be "spiritual but not religious” and those who have no interest in religion. He works with his patient’s beliefs and values, not his own.

In addition to marriage and family therapy, relational therapy and individual psychotherapy, Dr. Dire works with couples in parenting children.
