Message to clients

My life has taught me that change is a constant and that the courage to change always feels hard. I am awed and humbled by the experiences of the people who choose to work with me. I have much to learn from the work we do together. In the case of couples therapy, change involves commitment from three people. Partnership is a fundamental opportunity available to humans. And yet, it is so hard to create and grow a partnership that delivers on its promise.

I work with people at all stages of their relationships, young and old.

Because of my bilingual upbringing and life experience, I am also able to offer couples therapy in Russian to native Russian speakers.
