For over 25 years, I have provided forensic consultation to New York State and Federal courts on criminal, family, and civil matters. Also, I see patients on a regular basis for neuropsychological testing to evaluate the effects of brain trauma, learning disabilities, and ADD on everyday living. In addition, sex offender work-ups (which include computer-based testing and clinical polygraph) are offered through my practice (NY Forensic) for the purpose of risk assessment and dispositional recommendations for the court.

This year has become a pivotal moment in all our lives, with the Covid-19 Pandemic upending all of our lives. We do not only live in a public health crisis, but the many injustices and oppression of American culture are now daily headlines. I understand the difficulty in creating time in our lives to dedicate to caring for oneself and the struggle of attaining wellness, especially during the past year. I am a LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist who takes a holistic approach to therapy and I hope, together, we can work towards processing the stress in your life.

I have a passion for working with couples at all stages of the life cycle. Premaritals, empty nesters, LGBT couples, couples with young children seeking to balance parenting with time for self and partner, couples needing support around sexuality and commitment issues, couples at a crossroads.... Much of my early therapeutic training was in Hospice bereavement counseling. Through that experience I became drawn to therapeutic encounters with the potential for spiritual renewal. In recent years I've connected with that initial sense of generativity and meaning through the practice of couples therapy, most notably in work as a premarital counselor.

Suffering in silence can be incredibly painful. You freeze up at the thought of sharing your story with others around you, afraid of their reactions. You’re angry at yourself for not being able to "get it together," and you berate and belittle yourself daily. Whether you are struggling to cope with feelings of profound despair, manage an addiction, overcome marital issues, or transition careers, you second guess yourself at every juncture. You’re living in space of uncertainty and loneliness. And as much as you want to reach out, you continue to hide your truth out of fear and shame, putting up a guard that seems impenetrable.

With curiosity and compassion I aim to offer individuals not merely a physical space to sort through concerns; but the opportunity to create space in the thought process for insight to occur. Through reflection on relationships, and the collaborative examination of formative experiences, we will drive toward the identification and adoption of alternative perspectives. This is a reliable path to healing and meaningful, lasting change. Please do not hesitate to contact me for a free consultation to determine if I would be a "good fit" to aid you in addressing concerns.

Do you feel that life could be more joyful, more meaningful, more productive, more balanced - but don’t know how to access this elusive "more"? You may have had a hard time finding your footing after a big life event or transition. It's common to struggle with identifying and communicating about what you think, feel, want and need. You may feel disconnected from friends and family and don't know how to ask for or accept help. The more we try to cover up what we're struggling with, the more we feel alone and fear being "exposed." This can cause us to feel inauthentic, awkward or ashamed and we may experience anxiety and depression.

With each of my clients, I cultivate a compassionate, non-judgmental, and supportive environment. I believe that the therapeutic relationship provides a safe space for identity exploration, so that you can more fully embody your truth in your day-to-day life. While a sense of progress is integral to the therapeutic journey, we will create a personalized understanding of what growth looks like for you, rather than settling for more prescriptive goals. As a relational therapist, I help people foster deeper understanding and self-awareness, overcome unhelpful and defeating patterns, and build self-esteem.

Do you struggle to know what you want? Is it hard to commit? In a time of so much uncertainty, it can be difficult to make decisions.  Maybe you feel blocked professionally or creatively. Or, like a lot of us, your struggles show up in your closest relationships. Maybe you’ve dealt with the weight of other people’s expectations and find it hard to listen to yourself or trust your own voice. Or maybe you worry you’ll be misunderstood. Sometimes you wish someone would just tell you what to do, but that leaves you feeling constrained and inauthentic.

I believe each of us is born with an authentic self that guides us on our path and has the innate capacity for healing. When that authentic self is not nurtured enough by our environment, it develops defenses as protection. Patterns of behavior, ways of perceiving the world, and anxiety often result. Through our work together, I help you to integrate mind, body and spirit, strengthening your authentic self and exploring whether the defenses are still needed. I am interested in your strengths as well as your struggles, and my aim is for you to begin to feel grounded, whole and centered.

Marriage and Relationship Counseling for same sex and heterosexual couples is one of my specialties. As relationships change and evolve it is not uncommon to find ourselves stuck in a place of conflict or distance. We may find ourselves feeling misunderstood, angry, and alone. One of the tools I have found most helpful in working with couples is the Intentional Dialogue. It is the foundation of Imago Relationship Therapy of which I am a trained and certified practitioner.
