I am a marriage and family therapist specializing in individual, couples and family therapy with a private practice located in Greenwich, Connecticut.
For almost 20 years, I have worked with married couples who feel “stuck”, individuals who are divorcing, blended families that are struggling and pre-marital couples to help them address their current challenges in a proactive way. My approach is interactive, practical and solution focused. Together, we work to identify concerns, goals, and beliefs but we don't dwell on conflicts or negativity. Instead, I encourage clients to look for new and creative ways to resolve problems. I challenge clients’ perceptions and assumptions to help break old destructive patterns to enable them to move on and attain their goals. In a collaborative, supportive and safe environment, I provide compassionate guidance that enables clients to effectively cope with life’s challenges effectively.
As a wife, mother, and stepmother, I have an understanding of the unique challenges that couples and blended families often face. I have worked with many individuals and families to improve relationships, enhance communication and develop realistic expectations.
Before opening my private practice, I was the Assistant Director at Greenwich Family and Youth Options and ran social skills groups, substance abuse prevention and divorce groups. I am also a mediator for the Connecticut Council for Divorce Mediation and Family Dispute Resolution; trained to work out disagreements and reduce conflicts in all kinds of family matters.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of CT. I have a Master of Arts Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fairfield University. Additional course study includes the completion of a 4 year postgraduate program at the Family Institute of Westchester and continuing education at the Ackerman Institute for the Family in New York City.
