Norene Gonsiewski, MSC, LCSW, Certified Imago Therapist, Relationship Coach and Author

Some therapists immediately advise couples that their ailing relationship cannot be saved. If you will come in and let me help, you are likely to be surprised with the positive results. My experience as a therapist and relationship coach of three decades and married for 35 years, is that no relationship is beyond repair when the couple is willing to get the help they need.

Since 1980 I have seen thousands of individuals and couples seeking to have happier moods and healthier relationships. I specialize in relationships because success at relating to others is key to our well-being. Moods and relating are intertwined. Depression and anxiety can cause isolation and isolation causes us to feel depressed or anxious. I can teach you cognitive tools that will transform your mood and communication tools that will help you to form lasting and successful relationships. Norene also offers relationship coaching programs and coaching groups for couples.

In my long career I have developed expertise in helping to heal from the pain and damages of infidelity. Recovering from an affair may be the hardest work you have ever done and yet, the most rewarding. If infidelity has hurt your marriage, let me help you to navigate the confusion of recovery so that you can reap the benefits of rebuilding your relationship.

Being the parent of a chronically ill child myself, I know that the stress from illness in the family damages your physical and emotional health as well as your marriage. I know firsthand how important it is to take care of yourself and your relationship so that you can bring your best to your family and their challenges. I can help you to face adversity, to grow from your struggles and to become closer to those you love.

In addition to treating individuals with a variety of issues, I specialize in helping single people who want to understand the root cause of their relationship struggles and to develop new relationship skills. I lead workshops and groups designed to heal childhood wounds, resolve past relationship issues and create a plan for change.

Email or give me a call today and I will be happy to spend some time with you on the telephone to discover if my skills and experience are the best match for you.
