INDIVIDUAL & COUPLES COUNSELING Evanston, Ilinois 60201

RELATIONSHIP SPECIALIST

Whether you’re single and having trouble finding the right relationship, married and going though a difficult stretch or a pre-marital couple looking for some relationship tools, hope is here. For 0ver 26 years, I have provided counseling for individuals and couples in need of relationship strategies and solutions. I also work particularly well with highly sensitive and creative people who find relationships more challenging as a result of their gifts. In just a few sessions you will gain insights and communication skills that can help you navigate any relationship including those at work and with friends. Many people have told me they feel safe with me when it has been difficult for them to trust others.

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

Counseling is empowering. Many times, after just a few sessions, people describe feeling more hopeful, clearer, less anxious, more confident and better able to work through relationship conflict. Don’t lose hope. There is always a solution.

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING WILL HELP YOU:

  • Understand your choice in partners
  • Identify what triggers you in your relationships
  • Turn down the negative thoughts in your head
  • Learn to express your anger more compassionately

PRE-MARITAL & COUPLES COUNSELING

Relationships can be both difficult as well as very, very healing. Most partners get stuck in an emotional dance of anger with their partner and don’t know how to get out. I will teach you simple communication techniques, anger management strategies, empathy and self-acceptance that invite connection rather than defensiveness.

SHORT-TERM COUPLES COUNSELING
For those who are short on time, I will teach you simple techniques to help you communicate with your partner better. Simply making “I” statements such as, “I am feeling angry” rather than “you make me so angry” will garner a more positive response.

RELATIONSHIPS AND INFIDELITY
Whether you have strayed in your relationship or have been the one left behind, you both are hurting. If you and your partner want to stay together, I can help you find your way through the shock, betrayal, rage, grief, guilt and re-working that often accompany this issue.

RELATIONSHIPS AND A.D.D
Are you in a relationship with someone who has A.D.D? Are you feeling lonely, ignored or angry that chores don’t get done? Do you feel like a nagging parent? I can help you understand the A.D.D. mind and how to work with it instead of fight against it. A.D.D partners are wonderfully special and should be cherished. I should know. I married one.

BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP COUNSELING

Founding or running a business together can feel just like a marriage.  Trust, communication and support are key.  When conflict ensues, partners are likely to attack, withdraw or threaten to leave.  I can help.  In a few short sessions I will help you identify the cycle you keep getting into and teach you how to find your way back into a  productive and friendly business relationship.
