I am a licensed psychologist who has specialized for over 35 years in treating couples.

During that time, I have

  • worked with hundreds of couples on a wide range of problems: (see Common Couples Problems)
  • written books, articles and chapters about couples therapy
  • given over ninety workshops and professional seminars at conferences, mental health agencies and academic settings, including Harvard Medical School and Smith College School for Social Work
  • offered case consultation on couples therapy to local agencies and to therapists individually and in small groups
  • been interviewed for articles in Men’s Health, McCall’s and Marie Claire magazines, local newspapers and the Baltimore Sun

I work with all couples – married and unmarried, premarital and divorcing, heterosexual and same sex. This includes couples experiencing a sudden crisis in their relationship as well as those struggling with long-standing stresses, strains and unresolved conflicts.
