Announcement icon While New York is on pause, I am providing teletherapy, and these services will remain available as an option or a preference going forward.
The divide between what we hope for in our closest relationships, and what we experience, can be wide. If our hopes for ourselves and those we love most could carry us through, there would be no need for couples/family therapy. But the demands of daily life conspire with old fears; with gaps in relationship modeling in our growing-up years; and with life events beyond our control to increase tensions, and undermine communication and connection. Judgment and anger do not have to crowd out collaboration towards mutual goals. Choosing couples/family therapy is a step away from isolation and towards the life your family envisions.
As an LCSW and certified Couples/Family Therapist for 26 years, I offer warmth, rapport with young people and keen clinical insight. I take a trauma-informed and relational approach to understand what stands in the way of your goals, and how we can collaboratively leverage strengths, face challenges and chart a course toward change.
I can tell you right now (even before I know you) that you have done well in the face of trouble, and that your family deserves help from someone who will appreciate your strengths while not shrinking from your challenges. I am eager to lend my experience and expertise to get to work on behalf of your family.
