Aimee Hartstein, LCSW
Relationship therapist Aimee Hartstein specializes in working with clients during the crisis period that precedes and follows the end of a relationship. "Many feel that they will never recover from heartbreak," says Aimee. "But, if this time is managed wisely, what feels like death can actually be a rebirth. Clients often discover new parts of themselves and create a more authentic life going forward." Aimee received her Masters in Social Work from New York University and advanced training from Washington Square Institute.
Melvin Browning is that best friend who gives sage advice based on 22 years of dating in NYC. Remember the advice-giving Peanuts character, Lucy, and her 5 cents cup? He is her with a PayPal account. He’s willing to assist anyone in need, but do not think of him as the supportive “Magical Black Character” found in films. You cannot use him like Whoopi Goldberg in Ghost to dance with your dead boyfriend. And, unlike Michael Clarke Duncan in The Green Mile, he does not cure bladder infections and bring dead pet mice back to life. He will, however, provide you with a funny, grounded point of view in a unique voice that readers laud "hysterical & true." He is a graduate of New York University School of Law. His relationship status is--sane.
