Psychotherapy is the process through which normal people solve the challenges of everyday living.

Does talking to your partner about your relationship create a painful, exasperating, and hurtful cycle of attack and counterattack? Do you feel compelled to please your partner, but fail no matter how hard you try? Do you feel that your efforts are ignored? Even worse, are you afraid to stand up for yourself for fear of being abandoned or rejected?

Does your self-esteem continually rise and fall like a chaotic stock market? Do you feel like everyone controls how you feel about and treat yourself except for you?

Do you feel so numb, empty, useless, worthless, or cut off that you use drugs, drink, eat, have sex, gamble, or excessively spend to escape the misery?

You're not alone. I can help you by offering a safe, secure place to explore the tools, strategies, and mindsets that can help you improve your quality of life.

More Info About My Practice

I am a licensed clinical social worker by graduate training, and I have completed a 6 year postgraduate certificate program in the theory and practice of psychoanalysis. I have worked as a psychotherapist and couples counselor for 24 years. I have written a host of articles posted on this website and my own website at In 2017 I will publish a memoir that chronicles my own journey to freedom from the mindless repetitions of ineffective habits of being.

Formerly I taught as an adjunct professor at colleges and universities in NJ. It is my inspired calling to help others reinvent their visions for what they can achieve in life despite the impact emotional trauma has had on their lives. There is freedom to create new possibilities when we feel secure enough to let go of unprocessed, inaccurate, and self-limiting ways of relating to yourself and others. We can stop clinging to old programming when we are able to be the parents to ourselves we may have missed out on early in life.

I integrate psycho-dynamic, family systems, cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness concepts, , meditation, into individually tailored treatment plans. I will support and work in harmony with patients sponsored by 12 step fellowship groups.

It's human nature to cling to and over identify ourselves with familiar, and sometimes painful, habitual ways of looking at and coping with life. When we learn to be mindful and identify our valued selves as abilities to observe, reflect on, make sense of, and confidently act in our best interests, we shift towards embracing life as a gift to be enjoyed, and living as self-expressions worthy of celebration.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

The psychotherapy issues I feel particularly adept at helping people with are the treatment issues I have written about which reflects my wealth of experience and training treating such issues. They are: Addictions, Divorce; Life transitions; Divorce & Retirement, Couple's Counseling, Anger & Stress Management, and Performance Enhancement Issues.
