Gerry Bruhn, LISW
My name is Gerald Bruhn. I have been a Licensed Independent Social Worker and counselor now for the past 10 years at Lutheran Family Service, and an additional 12 before that at a Family Practice agency in Minnesota. Much of the work which I have done over these years has been with couples whose marriage is in some kind of trouble; most of the time the trouble centers on communication issues. I love the challenge of enabling a couple to begin to actually talk to one another again, by arming them with some new tools such as active listening and using I statements. And once they are talking and listening to each other once again they begin to re-discover why they were attracted to each other in the first place. There is nothing more satisfying than a couple who is able to reconcile with each other, in a couples reconciliation service and move forward. The marriage that was thought to be broken and irreparable can indeed be healed.
