I’m Stuart Fensterheim, and I am committed to your growth and healing. I understand and appreciate the courage it takes to decide to participate in counseling. My primary goal will always be to support and help you. I will always treat you with care and respect. I hope to enrich your life by helping you find the path to positive emotional connections. From an early age, I knew I wanted to help others overcome the immense struggles that so often stand in the way of happiness. Many of us engage in patterns of behavior that obstruct our sense of validation, which can create difficulties when it comes to connecting with others. A lack of strong connections can lead to feelings of loneliness, depression, loss and fear. I believe that we all deserve to live comfortable, happy lives, as free as possible from these obstructions. To realize my hope to help others, I received my master’s degree in social work from the University of Maryland in 1985, where I specialized in individual and family counseling.
