Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
developing the courage to tell the truth, and by letting go of a good/bad - right/wrong approach to others and understanding that we are each at different movies In my work with couples,I help each partner imrpove their ability to focus on him or herself, because that is where you really have the power to make changes! Couples and Relationship Therapy: I work with couples in crisis, in transition and in need of better intimacy skills. That includes pre-marital, married, and divorcing couples. My "bi-focal" therapeutic approach is both interpersonal and intrapsychic: I assist both partners in expressing feelings, listening to and understanding each other, and responding authentically. I also address relevant underlying individual issues. I also work with single inidivuals seeking to deepen their interpersonal relationships. Eating disorders: For 30 years I have helped many patients overcome Anorexia, Bulimia and Compulsive Eating by directly addressing the underlying emotional/psychological issues, overcoming "diet thinking" (Diets don't work!!), and making permanent lifestyle changes.
