Agnes Forrás & John McDonald



Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)

For more than 35 years we have offered sensible, sensitive and caring help for all kinds of adult problems of living, including: handling problems of thinking, feeling, mood and behavior, improving relationships at home and work, helping to discover your purpose and direction, and to better manage life's transitions and increasing stresses. Our aim is to help you to better relationships and a better life. COUPLES: We are especially skilled in and love working with relationship problems. Our own wonderful marriage of 36 years is inspiration and grounds our work in solid reality. This, along with years of training with top relationship experts, provides for our successful approach. GROUPS: As human relationship experts we also offer intellectually and emotionally stimulating co-ed personal development groups. The group provides a very rich, safe environment for creating community, authenticity, connection and interpersonal learning and a more meaningful life. Other benefits may include: Overcoming low self-esteem, Establishing your appropriate boundaries, Forming a clear and confident identity, Living your deepest values and principles, Learning excellent communication skills, Alleviating social anxiety; Resolving self-defeating behaviors, Managing your moods. Please call for a free interview. INDIVIDUALS: The above goals can be part of individual work for those unable to fit the group's time schedule or needing a more individual focus.

We have been working in the area of personal development since the 1980's and have continued to grow our skills as human problems solvers. We can help with a wide range of client problems. What sets us apart, beyond our extensive experience and medical knowledge base, is our in-depth, 52 page assessment process, which saves considerable time and money. It includes a battery of tests on temperament, the 16 basic motivations and the 18 self-defeating patterns known as Schemas, that almost everyone has to some degree, including therapists! This assessment helps answer the important question: What is changeable and what is not, and therefore will ultimately need to be accepted? As one client shared: "I learned more about myself in this first session than I did in my previous year of therapy!"

Because of our extensive training and experience we can tailor our approach to your needs. We offer evening hours, and long distance sessions via Skype if you or we are out of town. We work in our warm, comfortable, very private home office, where your confidentiality is assured. Let's talk!
