Widely and internationally known specialist in the treatment of marital therapy. One of the first to bring a psychoanalytic/psychodynamic perspective to marital therapy. Mainly how to help couples separate from the negative projections by the other which I refer to as "the dance." Author of The Narcissistic/Borderline Couple, Emotional Abuse of High -Functioning Women; How to Talk to a Narcissist; How to Talk to a Borderline; and numerous other publications on marital and political conflict. As a classically trained ballet dancer, I treat many people in performing arts. Member and instructor at the New Center for Psychoanalysis
Living in an ever-changing diverse and multicultural society. As a psychohistorian I have extended my work to the treatment of cross-cultural couples (same sex couples) helping with basic and basic human universal needs we all share as human beings. Dynamics within narcissistic, borderline disorders and other high conflict disorders are some main elements.
Having been a professional ballet dancer and author, I also specialize in treating dancers, musicians, actors, writers and artists. In treating the artist I am aware of their unique needs and help them connect to their true selves As a psychohistorian I specialize in cultures and treat cross-cultural couples
