Life Doesn't Have to Be This Hard.
Create the Life and Relationships You Long For.
Going throug a transition or experiencing a loss? Struggling with a relationship or an important decision? Lonely or stressed out? Family and friends can be helpful, but sometimes the help of a skilled, supportive listener in a tranquil setting where the focus is your well-being is the best place sort things out and move forward. For twenty years I have had the privilege of helping people here in the New York area heal from pain, enrich their relationships and rediscover their natural energy, gifts, and joy.

Here in New York it is a joy and a privilege to serve people from across the country and around the world. I work with many people who seek to be as successful in their personal lives as they are in their careers. People tell me that in the midst of the busy week our sessions offer a peaceful, nurturing place to get in touch with their best self and discover a new balance in life.

Each person or couple seeking therapy is unique. That's why I don't offer cookie-cutter solutions. Our work together is respectful and collaborative. Listening carefully, I draw on the most effective resources and research, using my experience and creativity to help you build the life you seek.

In these challenging times you need experienced, caring help for yourself or your relationship.
Bio
have been working with couples and individuals in the New York area for twenty years.

When you come for your first session, I'll create a safe, supportive environment for you to talk about your concerns. I am active, drawing on many different aspects of my training and experience to understand you and meet your unique needs.
