I treat mood disorders, children with challenging behaviors, marital/relationship issues, parent/child/adolescent problems, school problems, life transition issues, job stress, post-traumatic stress, a support group for parents of children with PDD, grief issues, anger management, substance abuse follow up treatment.
Anxiety and Depression are the most common reasons people seek help. Life transitions such as divorce, custody issues, behavioral problems, are some of the other issues. Besides having over 20 years in private practice I have had many life experiences that provide insight and help me to encourage clients to feel safe expressing their feelings and talking about the problems that brought them in for therapy. I try to maintain an atmosphere that is welcoming and relaxing for my clients.

Psycho-dynamic, Gestalt, Solution-focused and other approaches in Psychology led me to understand our emotional life as a strong and resilient force. This force is leading us - sometimes unnoticed - to new beginnings; we resist what is destructive and we heal at the same time.

CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING REFERRALS- Life is filled with moments of great joy, profound sorrow, and everything in between; at times navigating the ups and downs can be challenging. Often people get stuck in familiar patterns that aren't productive. One of the benefits of therapy is having an objective, non-judgmental ally to assist you through the change process. Therapy is interactive and collaborative. As a therapist, my goal is to help my clients recognize and utilize the strengths they already possess to create the change they seek in their lives.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Essex and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
