About my Practice
I have been working with children and families as a psychotherapist, forensic child custody evaluator, forensic foster care evaluator, parent coordinator, parent educator for divorcing families for many years. I also work with college students at the SUNY Purchase Counseling Center.
In 2005 I was part of the original group of interdisciplinary professionals in New York who joined together to form the NYACP. Having seen families whose lives were consumed with conflict at the time of separation and divorce,and post divorce, I am committed to being a part of a team that works to resolve issues as peacefully as possible, in a way that is beneficial for all family members. As a divorce coach and child specialist, I have been able to assist parents and children, as they negotiate the complex emotional and practical issues as they arise during the process. Likewise, in working with attorneys and financial professionals, I am able to both offer my insight, as well as benefit from the expertise of the other team members.
