Satisfying love and work, living our values, enjoying healthy love, personal and work relationships is what we want for our lives.

When we struggle with anxiety, depression, stress, relationship conflict, grief, anger, infidelity, separation or divorce, money, job and retirement issues, cultural and interfaith differences, family, midlife or aging issues, often a guide who understands can help us deal with what is troubling us.

Sheldon Isenberg has been married to his wife Raye and has practiced individual, marriage and work related counseling for over 50 years. For 36 of those years, he and Raye shared a practice.  Shelly knows what it takes to achieve satisfying personal and business relationships, as he has spent thousands of counseling hours with thousands of men, women and couples, helping through individual counseling, couples therapy, marriage counseling, psychotherapy, coaching and consulting. He recognizes that having over 50 years of experience is a unique distinction, and he is happy to still be providing this perspective to his clients.

“Making life easier for people seems to be in my DNA. I can’t recall not wanting to help people in some capacity heal what is painful and confusing to them. People who come to me often say they selected me for my experience, having been married for over 50 years and raising a family, learning to negotiate differences, deal with loss and tragedy and the mistakes we make, while also finding a way to enjoy life.

In my years of practice I’ve learned to have personal conversations with my clients to help them “navigate” through their troubles and meet themselves and their loved ones anew. Conversations with clients about what matters to them is deeply satisfying to me.” -Shelly Isenberg
