I specialize in family therapy, couple therapy, family and relationship problems, family adjustment following divorce, group and individual therapy, and major mental disorders. I provide consultation and training in lifespan development, family and couples therapy and divorce issues. Currently I’m consulting at Ohio Means Jobs/United Labor Agency, on managing the stresses of unemployment and job search. I’m a Continuing Education Instructor at Cleveland State University and formerly at Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, Case Western Reserve University. From 1984 to 2007, I was an Adjunct Psychology Faculty member at Cleveland State University. Click here for my complete resume.
I believe that each person or family is unique and that therapy must respect that uniqueness. I would call my treatment philosophy collaborative, with aspects of narrative, family systems, client centered and dynamic approaches. Research has clearly demonstrated that it’s not the brand of therapy one practices, but the “common factors” that describe effective therapists of any brand, that make treatment work.
