I have been coaching and mediating since graduating with my Ph.D. from Northwestern University in 1984. I am fortunate to count among my successes helping adults and adolescents through the particular struggles of our time: tension between couples, parenting frustration, blending new families, separation and divorce, (un)employment, cancer, and loss. I have been gratified to help those in abusive relationships reassert self-control and regain self-esteem.

Utilizing a voice of reason and moderation I am able to assist people in shifting from fear and hopelessness to problem-solving and respect. When relationships, whether personal or professional, come to an impasse, I use mediation techniques to try to ensure that each party will have his/her needs heard and accounted for in a dignified way. In addition to talking, listening, and reframing, I use the tools of metaphor, active teaching, role-playing, visualization, and occasionally hypnotherapy.
