Many of my clients share a need to explore familial relationships to understand their behavioral patterns and how to make those patterns healthier. Others struggle with anxiety or depression and wish to learn coping skills to better handle the challenges of daily life. Additionally, I have worked with Princeton undergraduate and graduate students for many years and understand well the many and varied challenges which students may face.

I have successfully helped individuals, couples and families improve communication, regain trust and achieve a deeper connection with self and others.
Courage. That is what I hear when I am contacted for consultation. We collaborate in a supportive environment to face challenges like being single (again), grief, strengthening a marriage, #MeToo, anxiety, codependency, impostor syndrome or burnout. Together, we understand and transform barriers that block you from what you want in life. I have extensive training in the treatment of trauma/neglect. I have experience working with people from a variety of ethnicities, religious/spiritual backgrounds and sexual orientations. We will mindfully, focus on the present and briefly visit the past when it is influencing the present.
I see clients in individual couple or family therapy depending on the issues the client wants to address and together we define goals and the best modality to achieve those goals. Other than diagnostic description for insurance reimbursement, I prefer to see the problems not as just in the individual but rather in the context in which the individual is functioning. Therefore I ideally include as much of that context as possible in the therapeutic work.

I work from a client centered, eclectic and humanistic model to address your individual needs. We will collaborate and develop a treatment approach that will best address your needs.

Employing a collaborative approach to practice that focuses on patients' inherent strengths and integrates modalities of family systems therapy, DBT, CBT, and mindfulness to create a safe therapeutic space that promotes holistic growth and joy
After 25 years, I still get excited about working with individuals, couples or families to identify and collaborate on reaching creative solutions that fit the person and his own internal values and goals. I draw from training and experience in cognitive behavior therapy, meditation, and the utilization of a host of resources that empower and bring real behavioral and emotional results in creating a higher quality of life and relationships.
My practice focuses on helping adolescents and adults who are struggling to overcome anxiety, depression, and adjustment disorders. I have particular expertise in working with men of all ages. I also focus on couples that are struggling to resolve differences and achieve greater harmony and intimacy. Often, differing parenting styles contribute to disconnects within a couple, particularly when parenting children with emotional, behavioral or developmental challenges and differences. I work with such couples to create a more unified parenting structure and to strike the important balance of familial obligation and self-care.
I had my first position as a counselor when I was just 20 and the compassion that lived through me then continues 47 years later. While developing professionally I enrolled in a personal individual and group training analysis and had a deep and caring experience as a patient. I consider it an incredible responsibility to practice as an integrative healer as I believe the therapeutic relationship is a privilege between two people. I continue to cultivate my personal practice, evolving throughout my life with an open heart, and open mind. My mother, and father remain central influences in my practice as a psychologist/psychoanalyst.
