For the past 23 years, I’ve been bringing to the community my expertise in helping couples learn how to communicate and individuals become the best version of themselves. 

I help couples hear, understand and have empathy for each other.  

Partners learn how to replace being judgmental with having compassion, controlling with accepting and getting defensive with not taking each other's behavior personally.  Instead of reacting with anger, partners respond appropriately.  Rather than shutting down, partners stay open to learning. 

When both partners show up together at the same time as mature loving adults, they create a loving relationship where there is connection, trust, intimacy, vulnerability, passion, playfulness and joy!  

I can help you learn how to do this and sustain this deep connection.  

I help Individuals learn how to value themselves.

Individuals learn how to like, love and take better care of themselves so that they know and are able to take loving action on what's truly in their highest good.  

Individuals notice what they're thinking or doing that may be getting in their own way, and then identify and take the loving actions that make them feel more peaceful, joyful and fulfilled.  

I can help you become the best version of yourself!

Marriage Counseling and Individual Healing Informed by My Own Emotional Journey

I strongly believe that I can only help someone heal as deeply as I have healed.  So I’ve invested time doing my own inner work and practicing different therapies. 

One of the tools I use is Inner Bonding®, a process that supports individuals in taking personal responsibility for healing their aloneness, setting loving boundaries in relationships and making themselves happy.  Couples who practice Inner Bonding® feel more connected by defining their own self-worth rather than making their partner responsible for their feelings and happiness.

Another is Imago Relationship Therapy which helps both individuals who are struggling with relationship issues, and couples who are wanting to learn how to communicate in a healthier way so that they feel appreciated, validated and cared for.

I am a Certified Inner Bonding® facilitator and have co-lead the Inner Bonding® Facilitator Training Program.  I am also a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist and was profiled on the acclaimed PBS-TV series, Real Moms, Real Stories, Real Savvy as a couple’s therapist expert.  

I am passionate about helping individuals and couples experience the vitality and purpose they can find through sustaining healthy, meaningful relationships.  

I have a Master of Social Work from New York University and graduated with Distinction from the University of Virginia.  My private counseling practice is located in Cranford, New Jersey.  I offer marriage counseling, couples therapy and individual therapy in person and online for New Jersey residents and Inner Bonding® training for individuals and couples who live outside of New Jersey.

Life Outside My Practice

In a previous life, I was a music talent scout for Famous Music Publishing, Paramount Picture’s music division.  I express my creativity and joy through playing piano, songwriting, ballroom dancing and writing children’s books with my wife.
