Licensed Psychotherapist and Adult Educator

324 Raritan Avenue, Suite 111, Highland Park, New Jersey 08904

Originally trained as a family therapist at the Family Institute of Cambridge, Mass., I have evolved as an experienced family therapist. I believe that family therapy is generally the treatment of choice in resolving issues and preventing the problem from going to the next generation. It is useful to see an entire family but can also be beneficial if parts of a family will work together to overcome communication problems, resentments, and misunderstandings that can tear families apart. Family therapy is very helpful to resolving conflicts of adult children after a parent has died. It can also be useful with young children, siblings, as well as teenagers, middle-aged people and older adults.

During Family Therapy we deal with: patterns of communication (the way people in the family talk to each other); anger (how that sabotages the family); correcting dysfunctional patters, and negotiation (how to work out things so that everybody feels O.K. about the solutions). During family counseling families learn how to deal with crisis as well conflict management techniques. Also included are effective parenting skills for both children as well as teenagers. Therapy needs to have practical strategies and to be as short term as possible.

Family problems affect everyone in the family-from the oldest down to the youngest family member. Working with as few as two family members, I can help you and your family resolve conflict, emotional cut-offs, and negative communication patterns. Long term unresolved issues often create present day conflict and misunderstandings that affect everyone in the family. Therapy can help uncover and resolve those issues as well as work through the current family issues.

Families are dynamic! Many times when a family comes to see me, I hear “We love each other, but we don’t really like each other right now”. With an advanced degree in family therapy, I work from a systemic perspective where we explore how individual family members are impacting each other and the family unit as a whole. Challenges can range from a specific problem to be solved, an unhealthy pattern that needs to be altered, or an issue (loss, affair, emotions, trauma) that needs to be processed. Through therapy, we find ways to build positive relationships and to reconnect – so all family members can start “liking” each other again.

When I work with teens, I do like to keep the parents involved. Sometimes, my work with a young family member reveals patterns within the family system that cannot be resolved effectively by working with just that family member. By having everyone in the family unit to share perspectives, concerns, we uncover assumed roles, responsibilities, and labels that may be dysfunctional for the family system.

In family counseling family members develop healthy ways of communicating and responding to one another to create and establish an atmosphere of trust and emotional safety. Family members learn to identify their own needs, increase sensitivity to the needs of others and interact in ways that build trust. Family counseling is conducted in an atmosphere of respect and dignity for all.

I teach family members a skill called the Intentional Dialogue to help improve family communication. Often family members don't feel heard, that what they say matters, understood and that others know what they are feeling. The Intentional Dialogue allows each family member to share their 'side of the story' in a safe environment without fearing being judged or criticized. When this happens family members start to work as a team rather than be adversarial.

Licensed NJ & NY Psychologist

615 Sherwood Pkwy, Mountainside, NJ, New Jersey 07092

I always include parent(s) in all sessions so they can learn how to bring out the best in their children. I reach, teach, educate and motivate children to value and respect their parents. When children show gratitude not attitude it is much easier for parents to praise and show love rather than yelling, punishing, and restricting their children. The resulting harmonious relations improve the atmosphere of the entire household and the benefits extend to siblings.

My work with families is from an attachment based focus meaning that problems within the family system may reflect unaddressed attachment disruptions in an earlier generation that unknowingly get perpetuated in the current generation. Disordered attachment, trauma or other adversity experiened but not addressed in childhood can result in problematic ways of perceiving and interpreting a family member's behavior resulting in conflict and perpetuation of dysfunctional, maladaptive relationships. Within a safe, collaborative, nonjudgemental environment, I help family members recognize, understand and resolve sources of conflict.

We all have different family members that have influenced who we are and even how we interact with others. We learn so much from our families which influence our behaviors in daily life and with others (friends, relationships, co-workers). In therapy, we will discuss family systems by doing genogram work. Genograms are maps of your family of origin. We will discuss that there are certain patterns of behavior in your family that could be passed down from one generation to the next. We will explore how those negative patterns could be affecting your daily functioning.
