In the 12th Judicial Circuit, I am qualified to and experienced in developing parenting plans and providing court-related assessments and overviews for families experiencing the struggles of separation, divorce, and rebuilding.
As a therapist, it is my task to join with you to tackle your issues of concern. Sometimes these are situational. Other times you have become aware of a pattern or trend that continually gets in your way. The therapist must create an empathetic environment in which you can truly share and be heard. Then, the therapist can offer the insights and suggestions, so you may begin to unravel and solve the problems. It is a process. My work in Boston, Princeton, and Sarasota has focused on creating this environment and giving you the space to find your way.

Relationship difficulties often escalate - working with an experienced therapist increases the probability of a positive outcome. Parenthood can be challenging; while bringing immense joy, pride, and personal growth, it can also add much stress.
