Do you want better relationships?

Would you like to move beyond the losses you've suffered to find peace and contentment?

Do you want more meaning in your life?

"What you are looking for is who is looking."
--St. Francis of Assisi

I can help you accomplish all of this and more. Chances are you need to understand yourself better, to listen to your own inner wisdom, to take more responsibility for your life by facing reality. To learn to care for yourself, accept every part of yourself, and think more clearly, without distortions.

I can help you develop courage, integrity, and a stronger sense of self. Call me, and let's talk about your life.

"Freedom is what you do with what's been done to you."
--Jean Paul Sartre

My specialty is relationship counseling with couples, individuals, families. I will help you get past the ways you get stuck in your relationships, especially your relationship with a significant other. I work with people struggling with problems that include anxiety, depression, career difficulties, eating disorders, addictions, and childhood abuse.

Some tools I offer to help with this process are: wonderful books to teach and inspire you (Passionate Marriage by Dr. David Schnarch, Love and Logic by Charles Fay); exercises to develop skills like self soothing, listening, and parenting; extended sessions for couples; Focusing sessions (www.focusing.org), and EMDR (www.emdr.org).

"Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace."
--Amelia Earhart

I am a 1982 graduate of the Jane Addams College of Social Work at the University of Illinois, a member of the Academy of Certified Social Workers, a Certified Focusing Professional, and have advanced training in EMDR.

 
"I owe so much to you. I don't ever know how to thank you. You gave me tools for living and taught me how to use them. I will be grateful to you for the rest of my life."

--Maria* (age 33), social worker
