you for tuning in for another episode of
Medicine. Dr. Brian
Lenzkes is joined by two special guests on today’s episode—his
wife, Lanell Lenzkes, and marriage therapist, Dovid Feldman. Dovid
started his career as a computer/technical entrepreneur but
switched career paths later in life in order to help people have
successful, healthy marriage relationships. Dovid is a licensed
Associate Marriage and Family Therapist as well as a licensed
Professional Counselor. He earned his masters degree in Counselor
Education from Northeastern Illinois University and earned a BA in
Sociology from Grinnell College.
as it is with physical well-being, there are general guiding
principals for maintaining a healthy marriage relationship. Why do
people fall out of love or become bitter toward their partner?
Dovid says that the number one reason is lack of gratitude.
Therefore, one of the most important things Dovid helps his
patients with is learning to appreciate their spouse.
addition to hearing from Dovid about his methods and experiences
working with couples, Lanell and Brian discuss their own
relationship in light of the principles Dovid brings up. Along the
way, the trio discusses love languages, the differences between
dating and marriage relationships, eliminating negativity
(disrespectful speech, criticism, etc), others-centered action, and
building a mindset and environment of positivity.
