Specialties: mid-life concerns; problems with adult children; high-conflict divorce, custody litigation; indecision re: job/relationships.
I view psychotherapy as a confidential partnership held together by a mutual trust, courage and commitment to understand what has been embarrassing, confusing, and/or painful in your life. My extensive experience and psychodynamic foundation help me "listen faster" (understand alot more in less time, which I then share with you). I provide a safe, emotionally engaging process (not just "cognitive-behavioral" information). Typical comments: "None of my previous therapists ever connected the dots like this"; "You never gave up on me". I treat those I am certain I can help, provide referrals as needed. 3rd OFFICE: Pleasantville

My work with children includes struggles with anxiety and/or parental separation/divorce.
Therapy is a process of discovery and change, which, although often challenging, I believe is always an endeavor worth taking. As I greatly respect one's decision to make this commitment to themselves, I take an active approach in the therapy process and work collaboratively with my clients towards healing and insight. I primarily make use of psychodynamic techniques with a general focus on helping to increase self-awareness, a sense of wellbeing, and a sense of empowerment to achieve desired change. However, it is important to note that treatment goals established by my clients and me are individualized to meet each client's needs.

Clients come to me when they are having relationship issues. These can range from infidelity to a sense of leading parallel, almost separate lives, to divorce. Feeling like a victim, feeling like the abuser, and wanting to shift these relationships. I get calls from individuals and couples depending on the circumstances. These tend to be a mix of couples looking to redefine their relationship, individuals in a relationship who feel that they need to shift, and individuals in the divorce process who are separating from a toxic partner on the other end.

I am actively non-judgemental and find it most therapeutic to provide clients with a safe context in which to explore thoughts and feelings, gain insight, and problem solve in a lasting and empowering manner. I actively listen and offer feedback, reflection, education and, depending upon the issue at hand, more directive advice.
