I am trained as a collaborative coach, mediator, certified group psychotherapist, and clinical psychotherapist. Psya D. expected 2022 Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis, MSW received from Fordham University Graduate School of Social Work. Certified Group Psychotherapist
My expertise in collaborative divorce and transition coaching, mediation, couples/family therapy, and group dynamics helps me to assist clients in emotionally managing and supporting the complex decision making (around financial, parenting and other family issues) which are always a part of any divorce process. I help clients successfully transition from spouses to exes to business partners in co-parenting healthy and happy children.
Clients can learn to: establish a productive co-parenting relationship, improve problem solving skills, prepare to return to work, learn to parent solo, create community for themselves and their families, and plan for a happier life, going forward.
