I work with a lot of couples, especially younger couples looking to make a deeper commitment to each other or married couples who want to fight less and have more intimacy.
I have been married for 26 years and am the parent of a successful college student.
So, not only am well-trained and experienced, I also have the personal experience of dealing with both the joys and challenges of intimate family relationships.
I am on the faculty of the Chicago Center for Family Health and a former visiting lecturer at the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration where I taught a course on Adolescence and Family Therapy.
In addition to my therapy practice and blog writing, I’m writing a self-help workbook for young couples.
I have a newfound appreciation of a regular yoga practice and am very interested in the integration of yoga, meditation, guided imagery and other body-centered therapy in the healing of trauma.
