I specialize in working with couples in crisis. Issues include infidelity, addiction, illness, separation, divorce, parenting and transitions. Typically, the couple initially meets with me for an intensive weekend in Miami Beach away from competing work/home pressures. Couples report that the therapy entails an intensive, carefully managed 48 hour experience. The schedule and process is tailored to each couple’s specific needs. The members of the couple should expect to learn about their respective strengths and weaknesses, including destructive behaviors and relevant histories of relational trauma.I am a seasoned PhD psychologist, board certified by ABPP. I completed analytic training in 1989. I have practiced in NY and CT for over 35 years. I specialize in running process oriented groups and in couples therapy. Lastly, my rescue dog, Garlou, and I work as certified Pet Partners in institutional settings.My Three-To-One Couples Therapy Weekends in Miami Beach are totally unique. Couples learn to build empathy in their relationships by learning the art of progressive emotional communication – the personal steps that each partner must take in order to succeed in deepening intimacy.
