Licensed Psychologist in Florida (PY4034)
Sexology (Fellow), CSAT, CMAT, EMDR, Hypnosis, CGP (Cert Group Psychotherapist), TeleHealth Certified
I approach therapy as a collaborative process in which no two individuals/couples/groups are identical; each houses its own narrative and set of complexities to be examined.
I hold a doctorate degree in clinical psychology. I am a psychologist . . . a clinician, freelance writer and media consultant where I am a frequent contributor to media sites on the topics of sex, love, relationships and general mental health issues. I have a private practice in Boca Raton, Florida, where I have specialized for over 30 years in issues related to sexuality, relationships, infidelity, divorce, addiction, trauma, and general psychiatric concerns. I provide individual, couples and group psychotherapy and hold certifications in sex therapy, therapy for sex and process addictions, group therapy, EMDR, and hypnosis as well have taken specialized training in trauma, couples therapy, discernment counseling and parenting coordination/mediation.
The main focus of my practice is the integration of sex and couples therapy. I completed training in Sexology in 1995 with the American Academy of Clinical Sexology and earned the status of fellow. I trained with Dr. Sue Johnson, the originator of Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT) as well as other master trainers; I have training in the Gottman Method as well.
I am trained in and practice conventional psychotherapeutic methods (psychoanalytic psychotherapy, CBT, systems therapy, hypnosis) as well as state-of-the-art methods (EMDR, EFT) with a basis from object relations and relational psychotherapy.
With a certification in group psychotherapy, I facilitate process groups, including a general process group, a group for men with infidelity and a partners group for those who experienced a sexual/emotional betrayal, as well as a 10-week program for partners struggling with post-discovery of a sexual/emotional affair(s).
I hold sessions in my office in Boca Raton and consultations via Zoom.
