About

I am a Psychologist who has had over 25 years experience working with children, adults and their families on both the East and West Coasts. I was born and raised in New York City, and have had professional experience in New York, New Jersey, and California. My special expertise includes couples and family therapy, child development, parenting, populations who have special needs (such as learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, developmental disabilities, and autistic spectrum disorders), and high conflict divorce.
For many problems, I use cognitive-behavioral therapy. That approach includes using thinking to link feelings and working towards changing actions.
For couples who wish to stay in the relationship, I use the Gottman method to teach new ways of communicating and problem solving.
For couples who are separated, divorcing or divorced with children, I teach the Gottman way of communicating to improve collaboration for the children.
