I have worked in the field for 25 years. I also offer early morning sessions for people who want to meet before they go to work. Working in private practice and in schools has provided me with the unique experience and understanding of families, students and the school system. Over the years, I have expanded my expertise to working with people of all ages dealing with the everyday challenges of life, psychiatric issues and wanting to be a more well rounded person. Guiding and motivating people toward understanding what "feeling better" can be and working with them how to get there is a journey we take together.

Trained in Germany and in the United States I have been able to learn from both academic and cultural traditions. 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.

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.

You will select me as your psychologist not because I simply listen- but because together we will change, create, and organize your true self. After 30 plus years of working with clients in psychotherapy, I continue to look for the unexpected, the surprises, and the unknown, about the important people in your life and most of all, renewal within you. It is exciting to define new directions in a career or a relationship. As an older parent, I still look for overcoming the challenges in seeing how we all grow. I have had training in schools, agencies, and hospitals.

I look forward to assisting you through the challenges of life and creating a happier and more empowered tomorrow. I often tell clients we all have 'junk in the trunk', it's often the junk we have not dealt with or avoid that sneaks up on us when we least expect it. It complicates this already complicated thing call 'life'. Let me help you unpack the junk, explore its impact on you and how its impact continues to effect you. Through supportive counseling you can take back the reigns and create positive change.

Welcome! First and foremost, I would like to congratulate you on showing up for yourself and beginning this journey of self-growth. After all, that is truly what therapy is about. I believe therapy allows us the opportunity to reflect through the different seasons of life and ultimately our relationship with ourselves. Please feel encouraged for just beginning this process and imagine what the world would be like if we all embraced healthy self-discovery. Although therapy may be viewed as counter-cultural, I encourage you to stand firm in taking care of yourself and evolving into a more authentic you.

BlueCross BlueShield Therapists
BlueCross BlueShield insurance provides coverage for behavioral health services in Essex. BCBS HMO-style plans cover in-network providers while PPO plans provide a benefit that can be applied to either in-network or out-of-network providers. Blue Cross Blue Shield may not require a referral from your primary care practitioner for covered behavioral health services.

Some BCBS Therapists in Essex only have room for a few insurance slots in their schedule, so it's important to confirm in-network availability when you book your first appointment.

Blue Cross Blue Shield companies are independently owned and community-based healthcare insurers. BCBS is the largest health insurer in the US, covering 110 million members in 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. Nationwide, more than 1.7 million health care providers contract with Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies.

Here’s a link to more information on how insurance works to cover behavioral health benefits.
