The North Shore Center for Marital and Sexual Dysfunction Therapy has gained its reputation based solely on results. The Center brings 30 years of expertise to your unique problem.

The Center specializes in a unique program, developed over 30 years of specializing in Marital, Sex, and Depression Therapy. This innovative, research-based program provides rapid relief from relationship and individual problems. Many patients experience improvement in the first two sessions. Patients come in feeling stressed, often fearing they are headed for divorce. Often from the very first visit, they leave therapy feeling relieved, helped, and more optimistic. Unlike typical marriage therapy, you will be given specific tools to achieve rapid results that empower you to leave therapy as quickly as possible.

Patients terminate typically within 4-12 visits with this unique, effective approach that brings out the best in each person, as well as the marriage and family. This therapy rapidly shifts distorted, negative thinking to more realistic balanced thinking. It improves depression, which also can impact marital and family satisfaction. We are committed to saving marriages and bring thirty years of exceptional clinical expertise to that end.

The Center is highly respected and recommended by leading physicians from North Shore University Health Systems/University of Chicago. (Previously ENH/Northwestern Memorial Hospital). Chicago Magazine’s Top 500 physicians from North Shore University Health Systems have referred their patients to the Center for 30 years.
