My Work In Print

I am pleased to have been quoted several times in Making Marriage a Success, a new book edited by Jaleh Donaldson.

About the book: "Making Marriage a Success supplies the information you need to bolster your marriage, or get it back on track. Its dual purpose makes it twice as effective. First, it's a timely collection of pearls of wisdom from dozens of the best marriage psychotherapists from across the nation. And equally important, it's a directory of marriage gurus, complete with websites and contact information, organized in a convenient, state-by-state format."
