How do you share your deepest secrets with someone you don't know? Trust requires vulnerability and the courage to do something different especially when you're hurting. If you have become overwhelmed by difficulties that make it hard for you to function in your daily life, you have come to the right place. As a solution-focused psychologist, I help ameliorate depression, anxiety, trauma, and other challenges. My style is pragmatic and collaborative, instilling hope, encouragement, commitment, unwavering faith, patience, perseverance, and proven techniques to encourage, empower, launch and facilitate triumph and lasting change.

For 28 years, I have maintained a private practice in Montclair Center specializing in treating a broad spectrum of individuals, couples, groups and families across the life span. With the right tools and a safe, positive, empathic environment, I believe that we all can improve our lives.

After completing my doctorate in clinical psychology at the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, I completed a fellowship in the Department of Psychiatry at Yale Medical School. Following my fellowship, I worked in the Department of Epidemiology at Yale studying variables related to help seeking among individuals and families.
