It can also be a tool to help heal past hurts, strengthen communication, and rebalance the family system.
I’m a LCSW with many years of experience working with adolescents, families, and young adults. I believe that we all are powerful and resilient beyond measure, but sometimes find ourselves caught in patterns that no longer serve us. The teen years are a time of inquiry and creation, but also a time of confusion, fear, and angst. I find delight in walking this part of their journey with them as they navigate their way into adulthood. I believe that one’s experience in therapy is most impacted by the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client. To be seen and heard is the greatest gift we can give to another.

I specialize in family, couples, and individual therapy for children and adults. I believe that, within the context of a supportive relationship, people can understand their problems in new ways and learn skills towards leading healthier and more fulfilling lives. I utilize a strengths-based approach that incorporates cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and systemic interventions. People see the most change when doctors, psychologists, teachers, and other players are working together. Thus, with your permission, I consult with others in order to better understand the problem and provide solutions that expand beyond the therapy room. When appropriate, I will be your advocate.

My style is interactive, behavioral and usually short-term. I'm curious about where and how clients get stuck in running their lives, solving their own problems. I focus on helping clients break dysfunctional patterns, take acceptable risks, approach problems in a more flexible way. There's homework, new behaviors to try during the week. I have written 11 books on couple & family therapy, anxiety, depression & anger, brief therapy, clinical supervision, as well as over 300 articles. I write an online column for Psychology Today entitled Fixing Families, and have provided trainings nationally.

I believe that becoming a human is an incredible achievement and that social, family and internalized experiences limit our ability to manifest our genius and joy.
Working with couples and men is awesome. My clients always surprise me with their intelligence and strength, even if muted by their immediate troubles. Focusing on the connection the couple does have, we can work on the skills to being our own individual within the relationship. Working with men often involves negotiating the contradictions the world presents, attending to power differentials and how they impact our inner world, discovering where our habits developed and how we want to change and grow who we are in the world. I utilize a multitude of maps to offer my clients impactful and effective interventions.

Then we create a vision along with a plan to go from where you are to where you want to be in their life.

Families in which one member exhibits the symptoms of ADHD, ADD, oppositional and defiant behaviors, impulsive and violent behaviors, post traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, and learning disabilities work well with me.

Although my therapeutic approach is an eclectic style to counseling, I also care about my clients, and utilize in-depth listening skills to first identity the problem, and then help you understand how that problem personally affects you and the ones you love. Then together we can find solutions that work. In this region, I use video therapy, which has become a viable alternative to face-to-face therapy.

Over 40 years I've been dealing with family, career, and relationship issues or the deeper unsettling part of each of us.
It's hard for anyone to talk about personal issues. Anyone brave enough to do this launches themselves into a life giving process that increases the possibilities of their lives forever. It brings about unbelievable changes opening possibilities never thought of. It's hard work. It's scary. But it teaches one to live effectively with what life has brought and create changes that enhance the life that is. It's a journey into the good and the bad that takes a person to new heights. It's an exploration that creates love and light in a life.

No matter who you are, life is hard. The difficulties of our day-to-day lives often put us in an irresolvable bind: On one hand, the stressors are too big and too painful to ignore. And yet, while we may wish for and even utilize the support of those around us, for a variety of reasons, we often resort to going it alone. In these moments, therapy can be a promising new option: a confidential relationship rooted in honesty, understanding, and compassion.
