Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Montclair, NJ

About My Clients

I work with couples of all ages, whether in long term marriages or new relationships. Some are looking for help with how to communicate better, resolve family conflicts, or reconnect sexually. Many couples seek counseling after discovering an affair, online cheating, or their partner's sex addiction. Discernment counseling can help couples decide if they can stay together or if separation is better for them. Need couples counseling in NJ? Call, text or email for a complimentary consultation.

My Background and Approach

It can happen in any relationship. The day-to-day grind of work, school, family and other responsibilities can breakdown your connection as a couple. Small failures to communicate can escalate leading conflict. Once your relationship starts moving in that direction, you can find it difficult to stop the momentum. Couples often say they feel like roommates, are stuck in a continuous cycle of disagreement, hopelessness and feeling alone. I am an ICEEFT certified Emotionally Focused Couple Therapist and Supervisor. I have successfully treated couples with EFT for over 18 years. EFT is backed by 30 years of research with an precedented success rate - 90% of couples reporting significant relationship improvement. EFT is highly effective in dealing with: Infidelity, Loss of sexual/emotional intimacy, Trauma History, Sex Addiction, Complicated Grief, Child Illness or Loss, Depression, Anxiety and PTSD.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that each person has the answers inside of them and the power to make transformative changes in themselves and their most important relationships. My role is to create a safe space and develop a strong therapeutic relationship through which my client(s) may explore, take risks, be challenged and move through the "raw spots" that keep them from living their best lives. I am not a passive listener, rather I am highly engaged in the moment to moment process in each and every session. I will respectfully interrupt and ask clients to "pause" or "stay with" and explore emergent feelings, memories, even physical/somatic changes that mirror what the client is saying so that we can go deeper and see where it leads. This is especially important with couple therapy, otherwise it can feel like you are just rehashing the same information. We get "underneath" the "I said - You said" to the hurts, longings and unmet needs that drive conflict or worse lead to withdrawal and silence.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
