Whether working with troubled couples and families or dealing with bulimia or binge eating, her goal is to help help people develop relationships with themselves and others which bring meaning, vitality and aliveness into their lives.

She is the author dozens of articles, chapters and two books, A Starving Madness: Tales of Hunger, Hope and Healing in Psychotherapy (Gurze Books, 2002) and Befriending Your Ex After Divorce: Making Life Better for You Your Kids and Yes Your Ex (New Harbinger Publications, 2013).
