Divorce is an area of expertise for me.
Life's challenges are inevitable. Asking for help is your strength. Welcome to my practice! I am a licensed psychologist trained to work with children, teens, parents and adults. Healing starts with feeling connected. My warmth and easy going calm, create an atmosphere of comfort and openness. While encouraging self awareness, I respect and value the practical issues of life and incorporate them in my work. Listening, interacting, being supportive and solution oriented, characterize my style. I believe that people can strive toward increased fulfillment and happiness. Feeling listened to, validated and understood are essential ingredients for change and of course a little humor helps!

“I’m so sad.” “I’m stuck.” “I’m lonely.” “I hate my life.” “I’m nervous about everything.” If these sentiments sound familiar, you have just taken the first step toward change. I have specialized training in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and complex trauma. I have unique experience in treating men and women with relationship issues as well as those contemplating, or in the process of, divorce. I have worked extensively with religiously observant individuals of the Catholic and Jewish faith, negotiating the tension between modern contemporary life and religious practice.

I have worked extensively with individuals and couples experiencing rupture and repair from infidelity, relationship changes including separation and divorce, and changes to the family unit, such as the birth of a child or illness of a family member.
Sometimes life’s hard moments don’t pass as quickly as we wish. This can be especially felt in the context of relationships with those whom we care deeply for: the connection may begin to feel stale; communication breaks down; one person’s growth doesn’t always align with another and relational dynamics may change.

Divorce Therapists

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
