Working TogetherMoving Forward Through Stress and Conflict
“I want to feel happier and less depressed.”
“We would like to improve our relationship.”
“I would like to feel calmer and more in control, in spite of the stress, loss and trauma I have experienced.”
“We want to help our children cope with our divorce.”
“We need to figure out how we are going to live as a divorced family.”
These are some of the most frequent goals of my clients as we work together. Many of the stresses and conflicts my clients face can be due to life’s experiences and losses or can come from within. Stress and conflict can lead to disintegration of relationships with our partners and our children, and even in how we view ourselves.
Strengthening coping skills, 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 40 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 divorcing or 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 strong sense of a healthy family.
My offices are located in Manhattan across from Grand Central Terminal.

brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems.”
