"First, I believe it is my duty to be able to actively listen to my client, obtain a good understanding of where they are and where they want to go. Together, we will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals. As a young man growing up in North Chicago, I quickly learned that life is full of rewards and upsets, if I allowed it to happen. At 3 months old, I was abandoned by my mother, left inside of a garbage can in an alley waiting to die. However, life had other plans for me. A passerby heard my faint cries and pulled me from the garbage can. Later, I was adopted but went on to experience years of physical and emotional abuse by my adopted mother. At the age of 12, I ran away from home and was placed in foster care. I was adopted again, but I experienced more mental and physical abuse. I dropped out of the 9th grade and began running away again. At the age of 16, the authorities declared me an emancipated teenager. With a story like mine, you would probably think there was no hope for finding happiness or for finding quality of life. However, I have learned to use my negative experiences as a testimony to reach out and help others. "

"Often the very ways we learn to cope with fear, sadness, or wounding in our relationships may inadvertently move us further from the closeness and connection we seek. Sometimes, this manifests in our lives as depression or anxiety. Other times, it shows up in our relationships themselves, through patterns of attraction to individuals who are more likely to cause pain, or through cycles of conflict, loneliness, misunderstanding, and a fear of closeness or abandonment. Psychotherapy provides a safe context in which we can begin to understand these issues and, over time, experience a deep sense of healing. "
