Tolerating and partnering with inner pain is not an easy task.


Too often we try to tamp it down, make it disappear, pretend it does not exist, deny it. This usually does not work, and the pain surfaces in other ways, like:

  • intense anxiety

  • family turmoil

  • inappropriate discharging of anger

  • blaming others for our problems

  • depression and

  • worst of all - suicide or homicide.  

The earlier we learn how to partner with our pain, the better quality we can hope to have in our daily lives.

I have over two decades of experience helping children, teens, and adults.


As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Board Certified Diplomate (BCD) in Clinical Social Work, I help people to partner with their emotional pain in adaptive ways so that they may tolerate and cope appropriately, using communication skills to have healthier relationships with their peers, families and other adults.
