OFFICE IN WHITEHOUSE STATION, NEW JERSEY OPEN NOW I work with clients who seek to improve relationships, are coping with work-related stressors, suffer from anxiety, depression, traumatic histories, and chronic illness. We work together to improve what is possible and to accept what isn't possible. While being "positive" has its benefits, there are times one must be realistic and allow the experience of negative feelings -- to learn to cope with sadness, anger, and disappointment. Clients often feel shame about their struggles; I seek to eliminate shame, help clients accept their humanity and vulnerability as well as their strengths

I work with men and women who often present with different problems. Men generally need to work on vulnerability, being more open to their emotional life and being realistic. Women have connection to emotions, but not always to their own power, and when they connect to this, their lives open up to enormous possibilities occupationally and interpersonally.

Anyone who is willing to grow and change is welcome, who needs a supportive ear and honest feedback. I see my role as a psychotherapist to share my clients’ burdens; it is the challenge and privilege of doing this very important work. SEEKING CLIENTS SUFFERING FROM CHRONIC ILLNESS in particular.
