I am especially skilled in working with older (over 50 years old) men who have experienced sexual abuse as children. Many clients who contact me have either never or minimally talked about this abuse.
I currently have a teletherapy practice and am licensed in Illinois. I will soon have full license in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.
I have been married since 1982 and am the parent of a successful adult child.
So, not only am well-trained and experienced, I also have the personal experience of dealing with both the joys and challenges of intimate family relationships.
I am on the faculty of the Chicago Center for Family Health and a former visiting lecturer at the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration where I taught a course on Adolescence and Family Therapy.
In addition to my therapy practice and writing, I offer workshops for professionals and the general community on trauma and other psychological topics.
I’m a life-long athlete and am very interested in the integration of yoga, meditation, guided imagery and other body-centered therapy in the healing of trauma.
