About

I am a highly experienced family therapist, supervisor, and educator, practicing in northern NJ. I have worked with hundreds of clients over the past 25 years. I work with young children and adolescents and their families as well as couples on a wide variety of issues. I teach family therapy at the institute level. I believe all problems can be helped by improving our connections with others. Children's problems are always helped by strengthening the parent/child bond especially when crises like separation, divorce, illness and death arise. I am an AAMFT Clinical Fellow and have the highest credential available in Psychodrama.
I use action in my work with families, couples, and individuals. Children often prefer to "act out" their problems rather than talk about them. I also have an active supervision practice in which I help therapists to incorporate the power of relationships and action methods into their work.
In addition to my clinical work, I am now offering classes in action methods using psychodrama techniques for therapists and other professionals who are interested in learning more about this powerful method, and a course in Family Therapy both for CEU's. I welcome all races, cultures, religions (including atheism) and sexual orientations.
