We all experience emotional and physical difficulties from time to time. Often we are able to deal with these life experiences ourselves. Sometimes, however, it is not possible for us to resolve these challenges alone. In these situations professional help is appropriate. Until fifty years ago anyone experiencing psychological and/or physical stress was treated individually. Family therapy grew out of a simple but profound idea: People in crisis can often be best understood and treated within their own famiies. As a certified family therapist, as well as a certified psychoanalyst, I have the education necessary to see both famiies and individuals.

I involve people who are directly connected to the problem. For example, in treating a marriage I include both partners. If a child is troubled I work with his parents. I emphasize the individual and the relationship system. I focus on relieving troubling symptoms and resolving current life issues in both.

I have over 30 years of clinical practice. I am a Board Certified Psychoanalyst, Board Certified Family Therapist,and Board Certified Clinical Psychologist. This background provides me tools to alleviate people's symptoms, and to produce a transformation that allows them to have a happier and more fulfilled life.
