Good therapy is an investment in yourself. Often times we find ourselves stretched too thin with too many responsibilities and not enough time. We become depressed, anxious, and unsatisfied with our lives. Past experiences and trauma tell us that we are not good enough, not worth the effort, and destined to fail. We are taught to put others first and sacrifice our own needs. We give until there is nothing left, we feel unfulfilled, and yet we keep trying the same old thing, hoping for different results. There is another way, a better way. I want to help you on your journey to becoming the best possible version of yourself.
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.
Creating a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment, I start where you are in your journey of personal growth. My practice beliefs are that each of us has a unique capacity for change. In lifes most challenging times, I believe we are presented with an opportunity to heal a part of ourselves. With sensitivity and respect, we work together to move you forward in your life. My practice experience is across the adult life span honoring diverse cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations and differing physical capabilities due to medical conditions.
Are you ready for change? Are you ready for a better quality of life? Is enough, enough?? Then let’s do it! Let’s take the journey together to begin to heal the trauma, find closure, and let go of the baggage that weighs you down and no longer serve you, today. Take the leap of faith for yourself and we will take the journey together. My areas of specialty include Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Trauma, Grief and Loss, Relationship Issues, Mood Disorders, Addiction and Recovery. I am inclusive and serve the LGBTQ+ community.

The search ends here! Are you: going through a difficult time in your life; adjusting to parenthood; experiencing some anxiety and depression; struggling with infertility or recurrent miscarriages; coping with the loss of a loved one? Maybe you just don't have the words to describe it. The emotional pain sometimes robs us of healthy control and reason. My expertise in clinical applications of art therapy is what you need. In fact, it's what you've been searching for. I combine talk therapy with art therapy for a balanced, mindful approach to tackling the stressors in your particular situation.
Welcome!! My name is Mike & I received my Masters Degree in Social Work at Fordham University. I am a Licensed Clinical Social worker who has worked with adults primarily for the past 27 years. I have experience working with Veterans and the issues they face as well as individuals involved in the legal system. My other areas of expertise are in mental health, substance use/prevention and treatment, as well as bereavement. I am versed in transactional analysis and am trained in EMDR therapy which is my prime modality.
With over 20 years of experience, I have served hundreds of children and their families as a clinician, consultant, and advocate nationally and internationally. My goal is to coordinate with multi-disciplinary teams to promote capacity for educating children within the least restrictive educational setting. I have provided clinical services to children and families within an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Clinic, parent education program, and leading in capacity development initiatives through school consultation.
Depression is overwhelming. It feels like a huge weight you are carrying around. You shut out loved ones. You feel tired and unmotivated. Anxiety is exhausting. It affects you physically. You can't shut your brain off. Bipolar Disorder can feel like you are out of control and unable to escape the negative thoughts inside your head. Starting therapy can be scary. You may feel like you will be judged. You may feel hesitant to talk to a stranger about your problems. This is natural.
You won't find any Freudian psycho-babble here. My ideal clients want to move beyond theory and discuss real-world, lasting changes. Sure, we have to glance in the rear-view mirror every once in a while, but it is the road ahead that matters. My clients who have shown the most progress are always the ones with the most drive to make changes in their life to benefit themselves and those around them. We can analyze your thoughts all day and there's a time and a place for that, but we need to analyze the decisions you make and the direction you are taking in life.
Please note: At the present moment my practice is full, I am not accepting new clients. If you would like to contact me about services in the future- please do. I create a safe place, to understand your concerns. I offer perspective as we find a way to see and resolve the effects of life's problems. We will identify and reframe obstacles in communication and learn about your emotional triggers and defence system. A new understanding brings hope and change. I am always up for this brave new challenge. I am on your team and I get inspired to assist with social emotional growth.
