As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with 20 years experience, I specialize in working with mixed-agenda couples, in which one partner is leaning toward divorce, and the other wants to save the marriage.
Through a process called Discernment Counseling, couples quickly (usually in 1-5 sessions) decide between one of three paths: 1. Stay the course and do nothing right now; 2. Move toward separation and divorce, or; 3. Commit to intensive couple therapy. Discernment counseling helps couples decided with clarity and confidence whether to stay or go.
I am licensed in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and maintain offices in Margate, NJ and Berwyn, PA, serving south NJ and the metro Philadelphia area. Currently I am the only certified discernment counselor in these geographic areas. I am an approved supervisor for the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. Professional presentations on discernment counseling include the NJ Association of Marriage and Family Therapy's annual conference (2016) and the PA Association of Marriage and Family Therapy regional workshop (January, 2017).
