I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with experience and success treating individuals, couples, families and groups. I specialize in helping my clients handle stressors in their lives and successfully navigate both normative and non-normative life changes. Some of the specific issues that I work with include:
- Relationship difficulties
- Divorce, remarriage, blended families
- Parenting (young children, adolescents, young adult children)
- Loss & grieving
- Self confidence & Self esteem
- Transitional life challenges
- Illness (for patients & caretakers)
- Self care
I work one on one with individuals to set treatment goals and help them achieve their goals in an effective and productive manner. I also am trained to help individuals effect change in their relationships and family dynamics when it is not possible or realistic for the other family members to be present in the therapeutic sessions.
Therapeutic Support Groups
I facilitate therapeutic support groups for divorced and divorcing women. These group provide a supportive and empowering environment for women going through this challenging process. In addition to being a therapist I am also an attorney and although I no longer practice law, I am able to provide this additional perspective and help women to make the best use of their attorney's time as well as to choose the best vehicle through which to get divorced.
Couples & Family Counseling
I provide counseling for couples as well as families dealing with challenges in their relationships including parenting issues, loss, infidelity, empty nest, dealing with elderly parents and other normative and non-normative transitions.
