About Jim Hutt

The secrets to managing conflict in your relationship may be relatively simple in some instances, but implementing them is typically anything BUT easy. Do you have fights about the same stuff, over, and over, and over again? Why does that happen? Because patterns are particularly resistant to alteration. The problem is not what you are in conflict about, it's how you manage it. Let me show you.

I have devoted more than thirty years developing methods that help couples break the patterns that lead to fighting. Maybe one of you has an anger problem, or you withdraw during conflict. Going to bed angry gets old after a while, don’t you think? Putting an end to that is now within your reach.

Managing emotional reactivity is hard for most of us. Maybe you want to re-light the flame, but you are not even sure how it and why it started to fade, and want to know the secrets to getting it back. I’ll help you figure that out.

Perhaps parenting struggles, particularly with teenagers, are wearing you out, or you cannot agree on parenting techniques regardless of your kids’ ages. I wish I could have had my own kid’s teen years for ANOTHER 10 years! I’ll be happy to clue you in to how my wife and I felt that way.

Maybe substance abuse is hurting you or a loved one, and you want help addressing it. I learned how to approach all those issues from the best substance abuse professionals in the world during my post-doctoral internship at Stanford University’s Department of Psychiatry.

I can help you deal effectively with parenting issues related to divorce, and show you and your former partner how to achieve parenting cooperation. The kids absolutely need that from you.

I have more than 30 years experience dealing with couple/marital, parenting and substance abuse issues, and I can share with you practical solutions that can help reduce these, and other stressors in your life.

Tell me where it hurts; I will listen.
