Change doesn't happen by chance, it's based on the choices you make and hard work. Have you been trying to make changes on your own and feeling stuck? I can help. I have 25 years of experience helping people to develop new ways of thinking and feeling to create lasting change.
Relationships, careers, and retirement dreams cannot thrive when you are hurting. I work with adults, both individuals and couples, to treat grief, anxiety, depression and difficult life transitions (retirement, divorce, relocation, illness, end-of-life issues), as well as communication and sexual functioning. Some clients are anxious to free themselves from nagging issues of the past, while others struggle to discern the best path for their future. I support couples who want to increase intimacy, and I help couples who have already decided to separate to do so as respectfully as possible.
As a therapist, it is my task to join with you to tackle your issues of concern. Sometimes these are situational. Other times you have become aware of a pattern or trend that continually gets in your way. The therapist must create an empathetic environment in which you can truly share and be heard. Then, the therapist can offer the insights and suggestions, so you may begin to unravel and solve the problems. It is a process. My work in Boston, Princeton, and Sarasota has focused on creating this environment and giving you the space to find your way.
As a holistic practitioner, who is also a psychotherapist, artist, healer and grandmother, I offer children and their families practical life changing tools and knowledge to meet everyday challenges. Children and adolescents are living a completely different childhood than we did and it is helpful to get a skilled and intuitive perpsective about these shifts. Some of the tools that I offer include: Mindfulness for kids and adolescents, Tapping or Emotional Freedom Techniques, Creative Arts, Hypnotherapy and Personalized Meditations.
SO MANY CHOICES LOOKING FOR A THERAPIST. IT CAN FEEL OVERWHELMING! HOW DO YOU DECIDE? First, look for a well trained therapist with a minimum of 10 years of experience. Second, find a therapist who has graduated from an advanced training institute after their graduate program. Third, find someone who has high professional and ethical standards. Fourth, find a therapist who has a warm and comfortable office environment. Fifth, talk to the person on the phone for a few minutes to get a "feel" for their personal "style" and answer your questions.
Sincerity, empathy, compassion and authenticity all important to the therapeutic relationship.

Therapy modalities include: CBT, Mindfulness, DBT, ACT, Solution-Focused and Family Systems. All therapy is tailored to the individual and or couple and their unique circumstances.
Approval seeking, bad relationships and addictions keep us from living out our true potential, but they're not the real problem. Many practitioners provide a long list of conditions, diagnoses and symptoms they treat. Frankly, I'm not all that interested in symptoms: I want to help you figure out why you've been using the same strategies for years and expecting different results. If you want to stop waking up every morning and hoping that somehow - today - your life is somehow going to be different, you've got to DO something different.
In my 35 years as a NY licensed psychologist, I have found that most people come to psychotherapy in some degree of pain, distress or anxiety. In my office patients find a climate of ease that encourages self-disclosure and a warm therapist-patient relationship. I strive to collaborate with my patients to help identify what is really troubling them so they can develop compassion for themselves while coming to terms with their circumstances.
I provide a safe environment to explore and resolve beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that stand in the way of living a fully conscious and authentic life. Specialties include work with anxiety, depression, trauma, divorce, death, attachment ruptures, and ancestral/ inter-generational shame, and PTSD. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I have studied at the Graduate Theological Union - University of California, Berkeley, The Graduate School for Marriage and Family Therapy, Ca.Institute of Integral Studies (San Francisco), and The Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland. I hold two Masters degrees and a Ph D in Psychology.
Are you feeling stressed and stuck? Sometimes a change in life circumstances can leave us feeling at a loss, striving to move forward. Times of transition provide an opportunity to reflect on new possibilities, examining what changes we may want to make to regain balance and move forward. Psychotherapy or life coaching can support you on your path. I provide a confidential and safe space for learning more about yourself, identifying obstacles, adopting new strategies, and exploring personal growth. Together we navigate the path towards clarity, hope, fulfillment, and greater meaning.
