About Ed Riddick

I delight in helping couples break free from the death spiral of serial arguing and reconnect again

Hi, I’m Ed Riddick.  I am a counselor in private practice.  My expertise includes communication, conflict resolution, and anger management. 

I have been coaching couples for over 30 years.  I hold a Masters in Counseling from Trinity International University and a Masters in Dispute Resolution from Marquette University.  My focus is communication and conflict coaching for couples and corporations. 

It wasn’t long into my counseling practice that I realized I also needed specific training in anger management.  (Who would have thought that anger was part of relational conflict: ha – just kidding).  I am a Certified Anger Management Specialist – II (CAMS-2).   I assist self-mandated, corporate and court mandated clients in anger management.

I delight in helping them break free from the death spiral of serial arguing.  Once the conflict cycle is broken, my hope is that couples will move on to learn how to talk together about the issues that matter without fighting.  Underlying the pain of unresolved conflict is the longing for a happy love relationship.  So, from the beginning I give my clients strategies that help them renew a positive outlook and hopefulness in their relationship. 

The joys of intimate friendship are awesome.  Couples say, “I just want our relationship to be like it used to be.”  The days of infatuated, intoxicated, intrusive thinking that come to an end.  The aching heart of love discovered and ignited slowly fade. Love relationships enter a new stage of love when relational closeness takes work.   Couples encounter areas of differences.  They experience stress, anxiety, confusion and the pain of conflict that goes around and round in patterns that go nowhere.  They feel trapped. They get tired of the strain.  Couples come to a place where they simply want relief from this loop de loop.

I am a tour guide. I help people move through conflict toward more satisfying relationships.  I am delighted to share what I know in a uniquely practical and helpful way.

I am married to Lois.  We enjoy life with our children and grandchildren.
