Ph.D. in clinical psychology

My Expert Service

I consult with parents who: * worry and are deeply concerned about their children and their children's future * are caught in unpleasant and unhealthy reactions and interactions ["dances"] with their children * long to create a positive climate in their home * wish to optimize their parenting * desire to cope better with the effects of divorce and the challenges of building a new family. I work within a specific framework that I call Conscious Parenting. Within this approach I am able to give you effective tools, skills, and a unique corresponding underyling attitude to assist and guide you to better cope with, relate to, and respond to your children.
