About us

We formed our practice based on our mutual desire and commitment to assist people in reclaiming their lives after the loss of a loved one.  We have a clear and practiced understanding of how complicated grief negatively impacts a person’s natural ability to mourn their loss effectively. Treating the syndrome of complicated grief has become the main focus of our work.

We were trained by a leading expert and researcher in the field of complicated grief, Dr. Katherine Shear. Since we became complicated grief therapists and worked on two studies funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, we have repeatedly witnessed the healing power and possibility that this treatment experience may offer a person suffering from Complicated Grief. This is why we do this work today.

The Center for Complicated Grief

The three of us work collaboratively in our practice; we maintain our clinical skills both through treatment and teaching.  We currently conduct workshops for the Center for Complicated Grief.

We have three office locations in Manhattan convenient to major transportation access points. If you would like to meet with one of us please contact the therapist of your choice to set up an appointment.
