My Approach to Helping

I\'m a senior therapist who has been working with clients for just over 50 years. As a child I wanted to be a family doctor. I think it's my approach to working with clients that has sustained my interest in the profession I chose so long ago.
My approach to helping people consists of a personalized commitment to your achieving what you came for. My style is to engage in a conversation about the issues you have and what gets in your way of resolving them. I am solution oriented. I think many of my clients have found me to be understanding of them and their situation, but also helpful in pointing out how they may contribute to their problems.
Lastly, therapy is a serious undertaking, but I believe I and my client's should find our time together meaningful and even enjoyable at times.

More Info About My Practice

I used to own and manage a large counseling practice which I owned together with my wife (Raye), also a fellow therapist. Together we built it into a well-respected Naperville counseling practice, which we sold in 2008. Raye retired and I continued practicing. Today, my office is in an historic Naperville mansion. It's quite comfortable and quiet, with the original (non-working) fireplace and built-in bookshelves adjacent to where clients sit and discuss their issues with me.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I'm recognized in my local community as having a special background and experience in marriage counseling for the full range of issues couples seek help with. Over the years I've worked with clients in a family business, something I have some unique experience in. I also am adept at working with men who have never been in counseling before.
