The challenges facing men and women today are very different than they have been in the past.
Our roles have changed drastically over the past several decades: in the home, in the workplace and in society at large. Many of us struggle to balance our increasing career demands with the emotional needs of our families and friends.
I draw from my experience as a Wall Street executive and extensive clinical training, to help my clients identify important coping strategies which enable them to enjoy success in the business world, and improve their relationships with spouses, children and friends.
My specialty is working with men and women, ages 18 and older, in the context of individual, couples and family therapy. Drawing from my personal experience as a husband, father and step parent, as well my business experience, I’ve helped countless individuals navigate through relationship and career transitions, and prepare for life after retirement.
As a behavioral therapist with training in DBT and CBT, I focus on cognitive distortions and maladaptive behaviors that damage relationships and sabotage personal and professional goals. Employing DBT skills of mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness, I help clients learn new strategies for addressing life’s challenges.
