"Helping people better understand themselves
and their relationships."

Welcome...

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

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...

Another study by Jesper Aagaard found that with an increase in telecommunication has come changes in the way people communicate in person. Specifically their communication had delayed responses, mechanical intonation and a lack of eye contact. This created misattunement between the couples and a feeling of apathy which led to both partners responding less and less to the other. Try to 'tune in' to your partner, make eye contact, pay attention, be engaged, try to show him/her that you are interested or curious and want to know more.
