With compassion, acceptance and a warm sense of humor, I help clients recover from trauma and anxiety, and I assist those who are in the midst of difficult life transitions. I utilize EMDR, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness, all highly effective solution-oriented therapies, in order to help you achieve lasting, positive change in as short a time as possible. I have extensive experience working with people suffering from Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, PTSD, childhood neglect and/or trauma, sexual trauma, recent "big T" and "little t" traumas.

In addition, I work with couples to improve their relationship by decreasing destructive behaviors and increasing 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. Call or email me for a free 20 minute phone consult and to schedule an appointment.
