I have been licensed as a psychologist in New Jersey (#2244) since 1987. Since then, I have offered psychotherapy, individual and couple counseling, stress management, and psychological testing and evaluation services through my private practice, to individuals and families with a wide range of psychological problems and many different traumatic life situations.

Prior to beginning my practice, I worked in public mental health. In mental health clinics, hospitals and social service agencies, I provided clinical services to individuals and families with varied and significant psychological problems. My responsibilities also included supervision and training of mental health professionals, and the evaluation of individuals with severe problems.

Currently, I provide psychological services in two distinct areas of practice, psychotherapy and counseling, and forensic evaluation services. Please follow the links on the top menu for more information about these services, and other information about my education, experience, office hours and locations, and appointment procedures:

  • Psychotherapy and Counseling Services – I provide psychotherapy and counseling, including marriage and family counseling, to individuals, couples, children and teens, using both a cognitive and a behavioral psychological treatment approach.
  • Forensic Psychological Services – I offer Psychological Testing and Evaluation Services for family, civil and criminal court (Forensic Psychology), including expert witness testimony, throughout New Jersey.
