I've helped many people cope with excessive life stress, resolve problems in relationships, recover from difficult divorces, manage traumatic bereavement and loss, cope with major life transitions, and develop effective strategies to manage changes in their lives. I served as the director of the Counseling Center at Pace University for 24 years. I've also worked in multiple settings with diverse populations including active duty military personnel, veterans of military service, persons in 12-step programs (AA NA DA), adolescents and their families. I also enjoy helping men to better understand and talk about their feelings.
I am committed to helping couples improve their relationships. Couples are often caught up in recurrent unresolvable conflicts that color the rest of their lives. Learning how to recognize and move past them is an important part of couples work. I strive to enhance the positive aspects of the relationship.
I've been practicing for over 30 years. In that time I have learned that all of my clients are unique and dealing with their own sets of problems and their own sets of strengths. I believe in working collaboratively with clients to help them arrive at solutions that fit.
