Addiction is a serious problem.
One of the most important things to consider in choosing the right therapist is experience. In fact, it can make all the difference in receiving helpful and productive treatment. I am a well trained and seasoned therapist and have maintained a Private Practice in Ridgefield Ct. for the past 30 years. Due to the pandemic, my practice is now fully remote through Telehealth. My therapeutic approach is eclectic, practical and solution focused. As a long practitioner of yoga and meditation, I have expertise in utilizing and integrating the principals and techniques of mindfulness and meditation into the psychotherapy experience.

My approach is one of meeting a teen or adult and their family where they are, understanding the root causes of substance use, depression, compulsive behaviors and "acting out" and coaching parents and loved ones to change family patterns so that the entire family can heal.
Thank you for reaching out for help, it is one of the most courageous actions any one can take. If you or a loved one is suffering with compulsions, addictive behaviors, depression, anxiety, loss and bereavement issues or any level of difficulty with adolescent substance abuse or behavioral problems I would love to be of service. I am grateful to have been a therapist for 34 years and to have the ability to engage even very resistant clients in the process of real and lasting freedom and health. My goal is to have you feeling better and improving your functioning quickly and I use many evidence based methods to these ends.

I successfully work with persons chemically addicted to drugs and alcohol. A large part of my focus is working with individuals that would benefit from the use of an addiction medication, such as Methadone or Suboxone. I also work with non-chemically addicted individuals such as problem gamblers. It is a recognized strength to work with addicted individuals with respect and dignity and without moral judgment. I support individuals' use of 12 step programs however; I effectively work with individuals who do not prescribe to 12 step philosophies.

I specialize in (but am not limited to) treating alcohol and substance issues in individuals and groups and am also a New York State CASAC.
I believe that in order to work on your issues -- regardless of what they are -- you must first feel safe and understood. My treatment approach is first to provide you with a safe environment created through empathic and non-judgmental listening. Change -- even positive change -- is difficult. By understanding my clients' individual strengths and applying effective treatment approaches, change can happen. This is a process that evolves through a working relationship of open communication and trust. Identifying and changing those patterns of behavior is the focus of our work together.

I work well with depression, anxiety, loss, and addiction .
People who come to me are often in crisis. They need someone who can listen deeper than words to bring greater understanding, clarity, and perspective. Fear or depression block pathways toward effective change. I bring years of training and practice, personal sensitivity and deep intuition. My goal is to help you release your own potential, unblock energy, so that you have greater awareness and can actualize that new awareness. I've been trained in five different psychoanalytic approaches, depending in part on your situation and location. I offer psychoanalysis in NYS. Call 203-894-9489 for initial phone consultation.

As a marriage and family therapist, my work helps couples and families love and function better. Much of my work has involved rejuvenating moribund marriages and navigating the challenges of divorce, co-parenting, remarriage, and step-family relationships. I also have extensive experience in working with adolescents, who are often in conflict with their parents and dealing with individuation, identity, and relationship issues of their own that can lead to substance abuse and other risky behaviors.
