Story
Introduction

I'm a recognized leader in the field of individual, couple therapy and family therapy. I'm a past President of the New York Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (NYAMFT), and Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the New York University School of Medicine.

I'm the author of numerous articles, and co-author of Marrying Well: The Clinician’s Guide to Premarital Counseling (Norton Professional Books, 2010), available on Amazon.com and other major outlets. Another co-authored book, whose working title is Not on Speaking Terms, on the topic of Relationship Cutoffs is in process, also with Norton.  I'm a frequent speaker at national and local New York family therapy meetings and conferences, and a highly regarded educator, supervisor and mentor to both new and experienced therapists.  I've been in private practice since 1980.

Specialties

couples, premarital and marital, adult children and their parents; parenting issues, anxiety, depression, career questions, dilemmas, and home-work balance problems. See website for more:
