Whether with partners, family, friends, children, parents or at your work, relationships are the centerpieces of our lives. Handled thoughtfully, they uplift, or they can frustrate, provoke guilt and aggravate. For twenty-five years I have helped people to find greater satisfaction through better understanding of the events in their lives, along with honest discussions of options and helping to find the motivation to move forward. I have published articles about marriage, parenting, and growing healthier relationships, and a book: HOW TO KNOW IF ITS TIME TO GO. Website: lbirnbach.com. I work interactively and confidentially.

I help patients find relationships, mend relationships and leave relationships. Often this work includes addressing issues like anger, passivity, grief, substance abuse, sexual abuse and sexual addiction, career difficulties, and hypochondria. I have become interested in the special and very different issues that empty next, retirement and aging present.

Let's have a free consultation. Tell me what is on your mind and we'll see if we make a good connection. Research shows that this is the single most important element for successful counseling. I will work with you either short term or longer. I work with people whose schedules require the flexibility for us to work by telephone and Skype.
