So many issues are solvable but do not appear that way from the inside out. Gottman says that 69% of fights are over long term, unresolveable issues. As a clinical psychologist, I’m inspired by the ways couples find to work through and side step long standing struggles. I’ve worked with individuals, couples and organizations for almost two decades and find the dynamics of couples to be fascinating work.
We all belong to systems of different types and sizes. The system created between two people is incredibly flexible and responsive to change. Change in one person naturally influences change in the other. Though difficult to navigate at times, the right coping skills can transform a relationship into a highly resilient place of rest.
I find I do my best work with couples where one or both people are business owners or executives. I especially enjoy working with blended families and stepparents. I have a subspecialty in LGBT issues as well as alternative/poly relationships. In addition, I have worked in the substance abuse field for many years and am highly skilled with addiction and codependency issues within biological and business families.

My private practice on the north shore suburbs of Chicago. I see clients in person there and online for both discernment and couples counseling.
