Couples Counseling for Brooklyn and Surrounding Areas

My goodness, life can be difficult at times. Did all of us sign on for this?

Yes, there are many moments of joy in most intimate relationships. Those sort of save us. And then there's the anger, and the anxiety, and the sadness. And many times these feelings are the result of our problematic assumptions and misunderstandings.

And that's what I treasure about my work as a therapist -- helping couples regain their footing and get back on track. I see couples in downtown Brooklyn -- accessible and easy to find.  My office is just around the corner from the Hoyt-Schermerhorn subway station -- A, C, and G trains.

Over the years, I've worked with more than 500 couples. I'm passionate about making a difference in people's lives. I educate, coach, and support you in your efforts to get better. And, in the end, I trust you to know what's best for yourself individually and what's best for your relationship.

My credentials -- I hold the PhD in Counseling/Marriage and Family Therapy from Purdue University and MEd in Counseling and Guidance from the College of William and Mary.  I'm fully licensed as a mental health professional by the State of New York and I am a Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.

I've made a life's work of studying relationships and what helps them run smoothly.

I typically see couples for 5-8 sessions, then we evaluate how it's going. If I do a good job of teaching as part of couples therapy, then the two of you learn what's needed to make it on your own.

I see clients on Saturday morning.
