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, you have come to the right place. If you are an empath like me, you know that the formula for living your best life is to heal your emotions. Family and friends cannot always help you get through the challenges of life; a good therapist can. The power of healing is a remarkable feeling. When transformation weaves itself into the fabric of your world, it provides the greatest rush.

For 29 years, I have maintained a private practice in Montclair Center. Combining a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach, I specialize in treating a broad spectrum of individuals, couples, groups and families of all backgrounds across the life span. Specialty areas include crisis intervention, trauma, anxiety, depression, loss and life transitions.

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.
