Background:

I am a clinical instructor in the Department of Psychiatry, New York University Medical Center and was on the teaching faculty of the Ackerman Institute for Family Therapy for 25 years.  
I have gone through infertility myself and understand the difficulties for the individuals and the consequences for the individual and for the couple in all aspects of their lives.

Methodology

My Approach:

I use a combination of therapies especially EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) which helps people change their negative cycles.  Couples learn to talk to one another in a way that reduces conflict and increases connection and provides hope for the relationship.

Modality:
  • Individuals
  • Couples
  • Family

Whatever your situation, using multiple approaches in a safe interactive environment, I can help you live a more satisfying, creative and love-filled life.
