JD Counseling

As a former practicing attorney, I know that my legal colleagues often struggle with emotional and psychological issues that impede their personal relationships and professional careers. Now that I am both a licensed professional counselor and a licensed attorney, I am helping many lawyers address these issues in a safe, confidential setting knowing that their therapist understands the pressures and demands that being a lawyer imposes on personal and professional lives. I would be happy to help you, too.

We lawyers spend much of our time in our heads, in our thoughts, in our intellectual world. Living in our heads advances our legal careers and works well for many years. At some point, however, many lawyers get depressed, anxious, angry, have a mid-life crisis, develop marital problems, have affairs or get divorced. The origin of the problem is probably in our childhood, not our legal career. It is often precipitated by some external event: job loss, marital difficulties, death of a parent, or career or financial challenges. We try; but we can’t think or talk our way out of the problem.  Living in our heads cuts us off from the potentially helpful messages from our bodies and emotions. It is those bodies and emotions that can now help to restore health and vitality. What lawyer doesn’t want to be focused, dynamic and confident? 

While I counsel people from all walks of life, as a body centered therapist, I am in a unique position to help lawyers address their emotional and psychological issues. Lawyers and law students seem to particularly benefit from my counseling services because, as they repeatedly tell me, I understand their world—your world. 

For psychotherapy services from a JD counseling JDs and their families, please contact me. I look forward to helping you renew your personal and professional life.
