I believe all parts of life are important, and I can support you as you do the work to feel whole. I work with adolescents and adults who are struggling with adjustment, anxiety, depression, and a wide range of other concerns. I offer consistency and deep empathy. If you or your child need support, you can trust I will be there for you. I know what it is like to struggle with adjusting to a new culture, school, or family situation. I know how support success no matter the learning style or struggles. I know how anxiety provoking relationships can be at the early stages of life and throughout the lifespan.

I have special expertise in the treatment of depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem, life transitions and occupational stress, most notably in the healthcare and teaching professions.
Starting therapy can be scary. It takes a lot of courage to face the unknown and walk into a situation with the purpose of creating change. Offering a safe environment for you to tell your stories and feel your feelings is, for me, the most important aspect of the therapeutic relationship. As a therapist, you will find me to be warm, caring and nonjudgmental. I will share with you my observations, help you gain insight into your problems and give you new tools to cope. Sometimes, we'll laugh -- a sense of humor is very important in the healing process!

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Lynbrook. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
