I treat clients aged 17 and up. I work best with clients who are ready to invest in meaningful change through a collaborative and thoughtful process. We all face challenges, and need support along the way. My process involves identification of intentions and values that support small gains in the moment that result in the achievement of larger goals over time. I start with a detailed assessment. Together we will create a treatment plan that is designed to help the client observe and experience the changes both large and small.

We all experience emotional and physical difficulties from time to time. Often we are able to deal with these life experiences ourselves. Sometimes, however, it is not possible for us to resolve these challenges alone. In these situations professional help is appropriate. Until fifty years ago anyone experiencing psychological and/or physical stress was treated individually. Family therapy grew out of a simple but profound idea: People in crisis can often be best understood and treated within their own famiies. As a certified family therapist, as well as a certified psychoanalyst, I have the education necessary to see both famiies and individuals.

What if we had the courage to look inside? What if we had the capacity to really see what was there and know that we could handle it, whatever it was? And what if we had the tools to apply that understanding with wisdom and compassion into our daily lives, our actions, and our relationships? This could make the difference between just stagnantly surviving and moving forward towards a more fulfilling existence.

I believe individuals manage the best they can, but these efforts do not always naturally translate to happiness or self-fulfillment. Oftentimes, situations cause us pain and in response, we spend considerable energy safeguarding our vulnerabilities at the expense of our well-being. Managing emotional distress alone can feel overwhelming, which is why we often need help from a sensitive, knowledgeable professional.

The most important ingredient in a successful therapy experience is the therapy relationship itself. The clients who benefit the most are those who feel understood, respected and cared about, and so are better able to be more genuine and more fully engaged in the process. A basic tenet of my approach is that our fears inhibit the natural tendency within us all to grow and move toward healthier ways of functioning. Individuals who feel safe enough in therapy to face their fears can begin to "digest" their unfinished business and take back control of their lives.

We all experience difficulties. Sometimes we get stuck in repetitive patterns of behavior that cause pain and limit potential. Frustrated and overwhelmed, we often don't understand the participation we each play in negative themes that often began in childhood. Through exploration and collaborative insight you will become more aware of the feelings and behaviors that hold you back and negatively impact your personal and work relationships. Self doubt and second-guessing are relinquished and in time replaced with connection and productivity.

After studying human nature and offering psychotherapy and executive consultation for more than 40 years, I decided to retire as of December 2018. In retiring, I offer the following. I realize that what people want is to live authentically, lovingly, and happily. The problem is that we have so many beliefs about life, relationships, and work that don't result in the outcomes we want. Because these beliefs are so widely held, we do not recognize that there are more effective ways to live. The people I have worked with come to realize and utilize ways of thinking, relating, and working that result in much happier effective lives.

I view myself as both a guide and partner in the growth process which I believe involves exploration and reflection on current and historical issues that keep you feeling depressed, anxious, stagnant or unfulfilled in your life. Understanding current coping strategies and the ways in which they may have been useful in the past, but are no longer serving you well is my focus. While I believe reflection on early experience is important, I also remain grounded in the present and provide more direct interventions when needed. My style is warm, engaged, non-judgmental, empathic and active.

Sometimes we get stuck ... at work, within personal relationships, with our children. I am passionate about helping people understand themselves better, and figure out how to face their issues. I believe that problems have their roots in the past, and that uncovering the origins of your feelings will allow the healing to begin.

Narcissistic Personality Therapists
Narcissists cut a wide, swashbuckling figure through the world...even in Highland Park. At one end of the self-loving spectrum is the charismatic leader with an excess of charm, at the other end reside individuals with narcissistic personality disorder , whose grandiosity soars to such heights that they are manipulative and easily angered, especially when they don't receive the attention they consider their birthright. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of self...and mirrors. Narcissistic mothers or narcissistic daughters are a common discussion in therapy, although beware the temptation to use the label because we all have a sense of ego. Personality traits related to narcissism include: Psychopathy, and Machiavellianism.

Highland Park narcissism therapists can help work through the issues of being, or knowing, a narcissist. As narcissism counselors in Highland Park they are experienced in guiding clients in dealing with this disorder.
