I help clients move towards “authentic life expression.”
A young adult who longs to build a life and career he or she loves.
A couple ready to build or re-kindle passion in their lives together.
A child or adolescent needing help to more fully feel who they uniquely are.
Therapy is a journey towards wholeness in body, mind and spirit. I am a therapist of Jewish descent who welcomes clients of many cultures and backgrounds to take steps towards meaningful and rewarding lives. Authentic life expression can be supported and thwarted in families and by societies that mistakenly value sameness. My work is to nurture the individual power and promise held within each person.
For adults seeking relief from anxiety, letting your “Inner Kid” out is one way to begin healing unresolved issues from childhood. Activating the brain and body through Core Energetics-inspired movement-inclusive therapy can help you cook up better ways to live your life.
For children I am a dynamic play therapy provider,* using sandplay and expressive methods to break through to tough-to-treat kids. I guide parents on strategies that promote an individual child’s strengths and greater harmony within the family.
For couples, I offer a premium service with my wife and co-therapist Judy Gotlieb, LMFT, accessing the perspective of two therapists in each couple's session. We also provide online couples mentoring and are long distance relationship specialists for couples across the globe who want to heal and grow.
