new ways of thinking and managing change.”

Harriet believes that people need healthy relationships with partners and friends in order to function well. Her practice as an individual and couples therapist brings her deep satisfaction. “I’m happy when I can help marriage partners clear away problems and focus on the good in one another, building tolerance and appreciation. I give them the tools, then they have to do the work .... with my help.”

Beginning in the fall of 2005, Harriet will be holding a series of dynamic workshops for couples called “Taking Charge of Change.” The weekend workshops will explore the issues and strategies of coping with a leading challenge to contemporary marriage.
