Once upon a time I worked with dyslexic students–children and adults–as a certified reading specialist for the NYC Department of Education. I wanted to understand how family dynamics influenced a student’s progress in overcoming difficulties in learning, emotion and behavior. This led me to study families’ and couples’ relationships in depth. From there, I developed a focus on couples communication and have been working with couples on improving how they interact for the past twenty-five years. Because many of the clients I’ve worked with have experienced trauma, I’ve become certified in one of the two techniques–its acronym is EMDR–that is recognized by the American Medical Association as effective in treating trauma. I am certified in techniques involving psychodynamic psychotherapy, family and couples therapy, and hypnotherapy.
Aside from my work as a self-help author, I have a private practice on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. To set up an appointment, you can reach me at (212) 665-5995, or contact me here for more information.
