Conflict can come from within, due to our experiences and struggles, and it can come from our relationships with others. It can lead to disintegration of relationships with our partners and our children, and even in how we view ourselves.
Strengthening emotional connection and intimacy can help repair fractures, increase compassionate understanding, and build closeness. Focusing on positive growth, shifting well-engrained patterns, and building greater self-acceptance can create lasting change and happiness. As a clinical psychologist with over 35 years of experience, I help adults, couples and families, by integrating many different therapeutic approaches to best fit my clients’ needs.
Even parents who are divorced can improve their relationships by learning to communicate in respectful child-centered ways. When working with families of divorce, I serve as a co-parent counselor, parent coordinator, collaborative divorce family specialist and mediator. I help divorcing parents decrease conflict, make healthier parenting and scheduling decisions, and co-parent more effectively. I am committed to helping parents give children a sense of family.
My offices are located in Manhattan (across from Grand Central Terminal), and Katonah (29 Todd Rd.), NY and Waterbury, CT (attached to St. Mary’s Hospital).
“We are continually faced with great opportunities which are
brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems.”
Psychotherapy can be conducted using many different approaches. In my work, I adopt a very positive perspective (instead of a stigmatizing illness model) to help my clients recognize and build on their strengths.
Divorce doesn’t have to be a lifelong prison sentence full of hostility and conflict for you and your children. I focus on helping parents go through divorce in a non-adversarial manner while concentrating on helping children get the best family life possible. I do not testify in court. Instead I work directly with parents and attorneys to promote co-parenting and parent-driven, child-centered family decisions.
Running a professional practice can be a daunting task. There is so much that is not taught in a professional training program, yet essential to running an effective and sustainable practice in a responsible manner.
