"Helping people better understand themselves
and their relationships."

Yes, I am offering appointments using telehealth video-conferencing during the current pandemic

Welcome...

As a psychologist practicing in the Shoreham Wading River area for over thirty years, Ive seen couples from many towns in 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...

According to Dr. Harville Hendrix, we all have unmet needs from our childhood and look to our partner to met those needs and help us heal and grow. When we are most frustrated or upset with our partner, it's usually because he/she is not meeting one of those unmet needs from childhood. The next time this happens, pause and try to figure out what is the underlying cause of your negative reaction. Do you remember feeling like this when you were a child? Share this with your partner to increase his/her empathy for your experiences.
