Great to meet you!

Hello! I have been working as a therapist for 20 years and I specialize in working with couples and families. Whether you are struggling in your marriage or need to sort out a few things before saying "I do," I will teach you and guide you through an effective dialogue that will positively change how you communicate. In addition to working with couples, I also help those going through life transitions such as getting or losing a job, dating and marriage, divorce, and loss.

A bit about my approach to therapy

All too often, marriage therapists end up in the position of mediating fights in the office or acting as a judge who decides who is right and who is wrong. My approach is different. Using the skills taught in Imago Therapy, you and your partner will learn to talk respectfully and listen with compassion so that you can better understand one another and resolve issues. It is very common that clients feel better from the very first meeting.

What you can expect from our first session

What you will discover from working with me is that I am interested, curious, thorough, engaged and invested in helping you feel better and improve your life in whatever way you wish. As a clinician who has worked with hundreds of clients both in private practice and at Jewish Family Services for 17 years, I know that clients come to therapy because there is a problem they hope to solve. I will work collaboratively with you to achieve your goals.
