Getting started with a therapist can be overwhelming and I hope to make the experience as easy as possible. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, young adults and families. With over 8 years of experience, I specializes in treating oppositional behavior, depression, anxiety, and trauma and attachment. With my training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I strive to teach the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor specializing in Anxiety, Depression, Addiction, and Trauma. I work with individuals to achieve emotional growth and healing. As each person is unique, I draw upon a variety of evidence-based treatment modalities to best meet my client’s needs. We will work collaboratively to identify your treatment goals and, based upon your needs, build inner strength, improve emotional regulation, develop communication and coping skills, and strengthen relationships and social supports.
Are stress, anxiety, depression, ruminating/obssessive thoughts keeping you from being your true self and living the life you want? Are you dealing with past traumas that continously present themselves in your present-day life? I can help you to break out of dysfunctional unconsious patterns that are keeping you stuck, and work collaboratively with you to start developing steps towards postive, lasting changes. I primarily use a treatment called Accelerated Resolution Therapy which can help facilitate lasting changes in relatively few sessions. (I am a New York and Connecticut-based clinical psychologist)
NAFI Connecticut is accepting new patients. We are utilizing a telehealth platform (ZOOM Healthcare) to service our families at this time due to COVID 19. Please call us if you need any support. We believe in creating a diverse and innovative services for people through a trauma informed environment/lens.

Life is full of stressors, and these stressors probably got more complicated by surrounding crisis like the pandemic. YOU are not the only one; you are not alone in this. Help is always there for those who seek it. You could have anxiety or you could have gone through traumatic experience, and going through grief. You could be struggling with substance use, or have unmet goals of yours. I hope that you know the real value of counseling therapy. Although it has been recognized as a treatment for those who truly need it, it is also the road to learn how to cope with the points and situations we struggle with during our daily lives.
I work with people who are "ripe" for change, especially those who have difficulty with boundaries and codependency. I can help if you’re constantly worried about what others are doing (or not doing!) and what others are thinking of you; if you’re neglecting your own needs; if you still want to help people, but not *rescue* them. If you’d like to learn how to develop boundaries, stop the people-pleasing and take care of yourself I can help! You'll learn to take really good care of yourself, stay out of situations that drain you, and have plenty of energy to help those who are willing to help themselves.
**Telehealth Therapy Available** I work with individuals, couples and families to help them identify and address the difficult issues that are standing in the way of the strong, loving relationships they desire. I strive to help all clients establish positive communication skills and stronger relationships. I provide a safe and supportive environment where they can explore and address feelings of hurt or anger and develop goals that will move them toward healing and reconnection.
If you are feeling anxious, stressed, worried, or overwhelmed in this current era of COVID-19, you are not alone. I will partner with you to help you identify & recognize your own strengths, process past and current events, and build coping strategies to improve your functioning and overall happiness. I use a strength-based, solution-focused approach to help all clients achieve personal growth and peace.
I can help. Life can be difficult. Sometimes we need support adjusting to its challenges. Through compassion and appreciation of all aspects of you, I will help you understand yourself better, so you can live your best life. To achieve this, my training has taught me that talking about feelings doesn’t change them. For change to occur, feelings must be experienced and understood at deep visceral levels. My training helps you delve into the emotional parts of your brain where this change is made. The whole experience is then processed in the cognitive brain, causing a permanent, positive shift in our ability to regulate our emotions.
I am a therapist and co-founder of Newtown Family Therapy. As a therapist I am passionate about empowering you to gain insight into the road blocks that have been preventing you from moving forward and feeling whole. My practice was born out of a desire to connect to a community in need of healing and out of a desire to do more than today's world of managed care and short term therapy allows. Newtown Family Therapy is a practice where all are welcome and encouraged to share their story with the goal of finding peace, balance, and wellness.
Each person's path to therapy is unique, therefore so is my approach. I have extensive training in helping people who struggle with many forms of depression, anxiety, childhood pain, self-esteem, relationship stresses and trauma. Whenever your concerns may have started in life, we can address them openly and with the patience and kindness you deserve. My approach is direct in nature, while also being very supportive in order to treat the whole person. In session, you'll experience the traditional methods of psychotherapy, as well as integrated meditation, mindfulness and other strategies to help the process as needed.
I want to first acknowledge your decision to pursue therapy services. It takes strength and courage to choose not to go it alone. I was taught the importance of doing my own personal work, and this has given me a much deeper appreciation for what it takes to grow and heal. Therapy can be anxiety provoking, even temporarily painful. However, it can also enable you to tap into your strengths, release the past, experience lasting relief, and increase positive connections. If you are ready to start this process, please know I will be there with you for the journey.

Positive change occurs through the dynamics of the therapeutic relationship, psycho-education and learning to view oneself and others from different perspectives. Together, in an environment of safety and trust, we can address and process relational and family patterns that may have left you feeling stuck, frightened or lonely. I can help you rediscover your truest self.

Nautilus Counseling takes its name from the chambered ocean creature. A nautilus builds a new shell chamber for itself when the current one no longer works and is uncomfortable, allowing the nautilus to grow as it should. Discomfort inspires change and growth for the nautilus and for us too. Are you ready for change? If you are, I am excited to support you in making that change. Together, we will look at what in your life is creating discomfort for you, what is contributing to that feeling, and how to help you change and grow towards a place that feels right for you.
Healing is not about control, but about learning to adapt and move forward with your life as you repair your relationships and find balance. In my decade of professional experience, including my tenure as a clinician and Senior Manager of Outpatient Services at Mountainside treatment center, I have sown a passion for helping people in their journey for healing and sobriety. At Mountainside, I design curriculums for clinical programming and incorporate Interpersonal Neurobiology and a trauma responsive framework into one-on-one counseling, group therapy, family sessions, and supervision.
