Many kinds of couples find their way to counseling with me. I see married couples, couples with step and blended families, new and old couples, co-habiting couples, bisexual and gay couples, swinging couples, and premarital couples. I enjoy working with the interplay between partners. Most clients come in to better their communications and lessen specific conflict s around decisions and patterns of behavior. Many come in to struggle about separation, divorce and infidelity. Couples who see me usually understand their personal issues more fully and know more about their partner then before counseling. They tend to feel more connected, warm and more respectful of one another.

Marriage is a rather fragile bond; love is never enough to spare it from major let-downs. Sooner or later, stress and frictions slowly and insidiously intrude into the relationship bliss, leading to let downs and conflicts. Conflicts are often the unsuccessful attempts to take back the sense of control and connection that have been lost in the midst. Unfortunately, these unsuccessful attempts only give rise to anger, bitterness, and unhappiness; sometimes to separation or divorce. The riddle is in the interaction pattern. And the vicious cycle repeats. Through counseling, couples can alter their interaction patterns, learn connection skills, and feel closer with each other again.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 60007 - Nearby to Western Springs.

What are the barriers to your individual and shared experience of life? What are the factors that can best aid you in achieving your desire for a harmonious union in your relationship. Frequently communication is a starting point that reflects individual challenges in effectively addressing emotional needs, forms of co-dependency, and long-standing ineffective habits. Working from treatment methods informed by the treatment theories of John Gottman, I seek to help clients learn to speak and interact in ways that reflect their vision for the relationship and not the unexamined habits of the past.
