Do you want to turn crises into opportunities for growth? Do you want to heal the pain from the past and experience the life that you want in the present?

Problems in life are unavoidable, but suffering is a choice. Trying to elude the pain of life's challenges can leave you stuck in stress, anxiety, and depression.

What makes you do things that are the exact opposite of what you want? Research reveals, in part, that your unconscious motivations conflict with your conscious intentions. Many blame themselves for making the wrong choices that are conscious but, somehow beyond their immediate control. Without your knowledge, the unconscious drives you in another direction and at your core lay the threatening force of fear that can drag you away from where you want to go. Every time you sense anxiety or fear, you apply the brakes, slow down your journey, and prevent yourself from living your fullest life. We offer psychological tools to move forward.

You look at your adolescent and wonder what happened to your sweet, happy kid? Your parent intuition tells you something is not right. There are so many changes, too fast. Adolescence is a stage of life that brings with it a lot of change, physically, socially, and emotionally. Whether your child is entering adolescence, in the middle of adolescence or at the end of adolescence, each stage brings its challenges. Not addressing issues presented with your teen can lead to risky behaviors. Most parents brace themselves and suffer through it, as does their teen but it doesn't have to be this way!

I have expertise in counseling for a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety disorders and addictions, but my experience in finally beating my own weight problem after 25 years of weight loss failure is what has made weight loss my specialty. I discovered the solution to successful weight control in 1985, lost 140 pounds, and have maintained my ideal weight with no trouble. I've been helping others to the solution ever since. Now I'm teaching it to other therapists too.

What happened to the person I married?”, you’re thinking. Well, it’s still them- just the stressed, frustrated version whose worst traits are rising to the surface. Spending so much energy on work, parenting, or have-to-dos leaves little room for the love and connection that you once shared. In its place are anger, criticism, and controlling behaviors. The distance and disconnection are worrisome, but confronting them just seems to lead to an argument and more problems. You're left feeling confused, depressed, and alone. All you really know for sure is that something has to change- and soon.

I appreciate your taking the time to consider me to be your psychologist. I come to you with over 30 years of experience. I had been in a private practice in NJ and recently relocated to Florida. My focus is individual psychotherapy. I utilize what I would call a compassionate form of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy with an emphasis on mindfulness based concepts.

One of the bravest things you can do is live life on your own terms. It can be challenging to make that first phone call, but I hope you can take a moment into the first step to experience yourself in new ways. I am here to support you through that process. Society fills our head with ideas on how you are “supposed” to be/act/feel/show up. I believe that each person has a unique story and journey they are on but the one thing that stays consistent is that we are most happy when we are in tune with our own inner world living from the core of who we are.
