"Helping people better understand themselves
and their relationships."

Welcome...

I am a psychologist in Shoreham, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York. I provide individual psychotherapy, marital therapy and couples counseling. I use Imago Therapy in my work with couples and am a certified Imago Relationship Therapist.

Every day I see couples who feel they have "grown apart;" that their partner no longer seems to care; that they've lost that "in love" feeling. Every day I see couples who re-connect with their partner; who feel loved and cared about again; who feel really heard and understood because they are learning in couples counseling how to heal and grow their relationship. I urge you to seek help for your relationship. There is hope if two people are willing to work at making their relationship better. You will find some helpful ideas through my "Tips of the Week."

I hope my website will give you some useful information and help you decide if you would like to make an appointment with me. If you have additional questions, please feel free to call me at the number listed to the left.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Tip of the Week for Couples...

I found this quote, sent by a subscriber to my tips (thank you), to be a powerful reminder of how we affect our partners. Can you apply it to your own relationship?

"I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
