I treat mood disorders, children with challenging behaviors, marital/relationship issues, parent/child/ adolescent problems, school problems, life transition issues, job stress, post-traumatic stress, a support group for parents of children with PDD, grief issues, anger management, substance abuse follow up treatment.
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.

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.

Has being diagnosed with a chronic illness caused you to feel anxious, isolated, worried, depressed or overwhelmed? Are you having difficulty adjusting or coping with your illness? Having a chronic illness can cause a drastic change in one’s lifestyle, can interfere with employment, interpersonal relationships, and an individual’s independence. As your Coach and Therapist, I use a blend of therapy, coaching, and 30 years of medical expertise, to help you navigate the turbulent path you are on, so you can better manage your chronic illness both physically and psychologically. I believe the body has an innate ability to heal itself.

CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING REFERRALS- Life is filled with moments of great joy, profound sorrow, and everything in between; at times navigating the ups and downs can be challenging. Often people get stuck in familiar patterns that aren't productive. One of the benefits of therapy is having an objective, non-judgmental ally to assist you through the change process. Therapy is interactive and collaborative. As a therapist, my goal is to help my clients recognize and utilize the strengths they already possess to create the change they seek in their lives. "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly."

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.

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.

Living one's life with courage, insight and vitality is not always easy. Relationships can be difficult, disappointing or elusive. Families and careers can be demanding and exhausting. Transitions arrive and losses mount up. Anxiety, depression, self-doubt and low motivation may arise amidst the stress.

(At this time I am taking new clients via telehealth or by phone. ) Each one of us has our own personal story, interwoven with the joys and sadness of life. Every client I work with I believe walks through my door so that together we can work on navigating issues, gaining skills and understanding of what they wish to change in their lives. Sometimes it is a subtle change one is looking for, or at other times it is a life changing event that propels us to seek help. Whatever the reason I am here to help people find the change they seek.

I focus on connecting current problems to old patterns, finding meaning in symptoms and identifying realistic approaches to change. The approach I use is highly collaborative and will be tailored to suit your needs.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Essex and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
