Do you find yourself saying, "I know I shouldn't feel this way" or "I know I shouldn't be doing this"? Are you having trouble with a difficult relationship or work situation? EMDR and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) are highly effective, solution-oriented therapies. I utilize these techniques, combined with Mindfulness in order to help you achieve lasting, positive change in as short a time as possible. I help clients achieve clarity about difficult decisions. I also help clients recover from panic attacks, agoraphobia, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and childhood trauma, both "big T" and "little t" traumas.

In addition, I work with couples whose relationship is causing one or both of them to feel considerable pain. I focus on helping the couple decrease destructive behaviors and increase positive behaviors in order to move towards emotional, physical, sexual and spiritual intimacy.

The parent of three children, I understand deeply the importance of good relationships, as well as the difficulty of achieving work-life-family balance. My first career was in finance. I have an MBA from Columbia University; BA from Yale; and an MSW from SCSU.
