About

"Every day is a New Beginning!" Over the past 20 years, I have often made this statement to clients and colleagues alike. We all face challenges, problems and setbacks at times, but we do not have to remain stuck in them. I have had the privilege of working with scores of couples, families and individuals that have chosen to change their lives, attitudes and relationships. They have overcome depression, anxiety or communication problems in their relationships. I have a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy from ISU and have extensive expertise working with people from all walks of life.
My clinical practice is professional, confidential and based on best practices. I hold three professional licenses in Wisconsin & Minnesota: Marriage & Family Therapy, Professional Clinical Counseling and Alcohol & Drug Counseling. I also specialize in mediation and consulting for businesses, universities and couples. I am a DOT SAP, Substance Abuse Provider, too.
I thoroughly enjoy doing counseling with all kinds of people. It's a privilege. Every day can be a New Beginning! It starts with a willingness to seek change, to try something different! Life can be better, more positive! For more information, visit our websites: lacrossecounselingclinic.com or winonacounselingclinic.com

Jeff Buikema's Groups

Marriage Enrichment (ME)

The Marriage Enrichment Group (ME) consist of four to six couples coming together to learn new skills and strategies to improve the dynamics of their relationship. Topics of discussion cover communication, conflict resolution, personal style and habits, finances, leisure time, roles and responsilities, parenting issues, family and friends, in-laws, sexuality, family of origin, faith and spirituality. The goal of each ME is to enhance the couple's relationship by providing new information, role playing, and modeling of new attitudes, behavior and coping skills.

More about this group

Alcohol/Drug Education/Treatment (DWI/OWI/DUI)

I provide drug and alcohol groups meet on a as needed basis. They fulfill the state requirements for those who have been convicted of a DWI or OWI. I offer them at both clinics, in Winona, Minnesota and La Crosse, Wisconsin. I also provide private and confidential alcohol and drug assessments and counseling for individuals. In addition, I am a DOT SAP (Substance Abuse Professional). I offer counseling for those who have had a DOT violation and want to get back to work.

More about this group

Premarital Counseling (PREP)

I have been providing premarital counseling since 1985. Couples who choose counseling before they marry learn how to communicate and resolve conflict, manage their money, understand roles and responsibilities, the importance of family and friends, leisure and sexuality. Men and women are different; understanding those differences is important.
