About

Tired of second guessing yourself ? Challenged by anxiety, communication problems, anger or sadness? I offer a solution focused approach to resolve self-defeating behaviors. Do you often act out your emotional needs, even when knowing, logically it is not the best choice you can make? Learning how to integrate your emotional experience with your best-self needs, is a much more satisfying experience I can help you achieve.
Hi, my name is Gerald "Jerry" Smolen. I have more than 25 years of experience and have worked in community mental health, the legal system, private practice, the corporate setting, and the public school system. I have a unique view of helping people having come from a career as a juvenile probation officer.
My professional journey includes specialties in family therapy, relationship communication, anxiety problems, parenting skills, depression, substance abuse, and sports performance. I have studied: family systems, imago therapy, mindfulness, NLP, and motivational interviewing. With this varied background I am confident I can tailor an approach that will be most effective for you.
