You’re reading this because you are in pain and need help in dealing with a troubled relationship.

If you’ve hit a "rough patch" or if you just want a "tune up", I can help you develop the tools to make your relationship more satisfying. Whether you are contemplating committing to a relationship, in a committed relationship, married, or considering separating, we can address the issues that you face.

Whether your concerns range from learning how to communicate better to recovering from an affair, or healing from childhood sexual trauma, we can work through the issues to achieve your goals. My broad-based practice, in which I assist both individuals and couples, allows me to use my training in addictive behaviors, trauma, and other problematic behaviors to address issues that could be affecting your relationship.

I also provide clinical hypnosis as needed to address pain management, weight loss, and many other conditions. I am on the Board of Directors of the New York State Society of Clinical Social Workers (Met Chapter) and formerly a member of the Board of Directors of the New York Society of Clinical Hypnosis.

Take the opportunity to meet with me for a free half-hour consultation, either in-person or by using video conferencing to see how I can help.

If you are seeking therapy of any kind, you are demonstrating great strength and courage. I insider myself a guide and an educator and I will be with you every step of the way as we explore your path to a better relationship.

I provide video services through HIPAA compliant video conferencing. In addition, I provide in-person services through my use of a stringent safety protocol. Feel free to ask me about this.

I look forward to speaking with you.
