Maybe you’re just sick and tired of waking up every day in emotional pain. It feels like you’ve tried everything. I get it. For years I felt stuck. I was functioning, yet I wasn’t happy. I went from career to career and from one relationship to the next. Nothing and no one ever felt ‘right’. I never felt complete. Instead there was always this empty space inside me that I kept trying to fill. I wanted to feel whole, yet I kept looking outside myself for that special job, activity or person to fill it. I always thought someone else could do a better job of taking care of me than I could.
It wasn’t until I learned that I was responsible for making myself happy that I stopped running from place to place, from person to person. It wasn’t until I learned how to manage my difficult feelings of loneliness, heartbreak and helplessness that I was able to get unstuck. I can help you get unstuck too. For the past 20 years, I’ve been helping individuals, couples and families learn how to manage their difficult feelings, take loving care of themselves and communicate in healthier ways. I can help you be the person you want to be and live the life you want and deserve.
I believe that I can only help someone heal as deeply as I have healed. So I’ve invested my time doing my own inner work and learning and practicing different therapies. These include Inner Bonding, a psychospiritual process that teaches personal responsibility, and Imago Relationship Therapy for couples.
In 2000, I obtained my Master of Social Work from New York University and then became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New Jersey. In 2002, I became one of the first Inner Bonding facilitators, started assisting the co-founder, Dr. Margaret Paul, at her workshops and co-led the East Coast Inner Bonding Intensive. I currently co-lead the Inner Bonding Facilitator Training Program.
I also became 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. I currently have a private practice in Cranford, NJ where I work with individuals, couples and families.
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, swing dancing and writing children’s books with my wife.
