About

I begin the collaboration with each person seeking my professional counsel by asking, "What is it you're not getting in your life that causes you pain?" Together, we explore the resources that will allow them to heal, change and grow. During the 30 years I have practiced psychotherapy, from a systemic or holistic perspective, I have assisted individuals, parents, couples, adolescents and caregivers to see and experience their lives differently.
As a Clinical Member of the American Association of Marriage & Family Therapists, I help families to recognize unhealthy patterns and assist them in creating solutions together. In addition, as a past school administrator, I consult with parents and students in relation to learning and behavioral issues as well as interfacing with school personnel, as needed.
I hold a doctorate from Columbia University and am also a Certified Classical Homeopath [CCH]. Homeopathy's inexpensive, FDA-approved remedies provide a safe alternative to psychotropic drugs for those suffering from anxiety or depression, and can provide a more gentle option for children challenged by ADHD/ADD.

Stress Reduction & Forgiveness for Caregivers

For those experiencing depression, anxiety, stress and even resentment due to a lifetime caregiving commitment to a child or loved one, or because of difficult transitions being encountered with aging parents.
