For the past 40 years, I worked in Australia and America as a therapist and educator. I was Director of the Family Therapy Program in Sydney and later worked with the Family Institute at Northwestern University. Since I am also a writer, I see you as the main character in your personal story called to face and transform adversity into personal happiness. I help individuals overcome anxiety & depression & help couples improve communication, resolve conflict, and increase love & intimacy. I am co-author of "Power Tools for Men: A Blueprint for Healthy Masculinity" & co-author of "Fighting for Love: Turn Conflict into Intimacy."
In essence, I help you rewrite your story. In counseling, I create a safe environment to discover thoughts, feelings, and behavioral patterns that create anxiety, depression, or relationship problems. With couples, I coach them to alter negative interactions & communicate in loving ways. I also help clients heal from trauma to achieve personal goals.
Having grown up in a household with domestic violence and family dysfunction, I became committed to personal and spiritual growth. My personal story and beliefs are contained in my books, "The Roadmap Home" and "Power Tools for Men," both Amazon bestsellers. To view my TEDx talk, "In the Age of Superheroes, Where Are the Fathers?" Google TEDx Szymczak.
