What do you look for in a therapist? What's important? Surprisingly, age, gender, years of training and theoretical orientation are not the primary factors correlated with the effectiveness of a therapist. So how do you choose someone? Is it by their picture? The best website? The one that's taking new clients? Finding the right person can be incredibly difficult. Research suggests that the most important factors in positive therapeutic outcomes are the therapeutic alliance, working together to set collaborative goals, and the therapist's ability to be empathetic, accepting and genuine.

I am passionate about providing a non-judgemental space where everyone feels welcomed, comfortable, and empowered.  Addiction has many underlying causes that vary from person to person. I believe that the addictive behavior is the symptom, and exploring the feelings, established cycles, and root causes behind those behaviors is where the work towards recovery begins- reframing thought patterns, recognizing and nurturing strengths, and developing new coping skills to create the life you choose for yourself.

I am an Addictions Specialist with over 15 years of professional experience in both NYC and Maine - in addition to personal experience with addiction and long term recovery.. most important factor when pursuing counseling is to find a "therapeutic alliance" that fits. I always recommend that clients consult with a few providers before choosing. Once a trusting alliance is established, I embark on a journey alongside my clients, which can be brief and solution-focused or longer term weekly sessions and ongoing support.

My clinical practice provides high-fidelity cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to adolescents and adults seeking treatment for mood, anxiety, addiction and sleep disorders to name a few. CBT is a structured psychological therapy that views problems as arising from interactions between cognitions, emotions, behaviors and physiological processes. As a therapeutic approach, CBT is brief (5-15 sessions), here-and-now focused, and measureable in terms of one's response to treatment. I employ a range of client outcome instruments in my practice, which allow for precise decision-making about how to modify treatment to meet the needs of each individual.

Most of your friends think that you have a great marriage. You often post pictures of your happy family on social media, but deep down you know something is missing and it has been missing for awhile. Every time you try to talk with your partner, you end up in an argument. It seems that one of you is usually yelling and the other shutting down completely or running away.Both of you are left with no resolution to the problem and feeling angry, sad, and alone. You are not sure if therapy will help, but willing to do whatever it takes.

Gambling Therapists
A compulsive gambler or a pathological gambler is someone who is unable to resist his or her impulses to gamble. The urge to gamble becomes so great that tension can only be relieved by more gambling.

There is a very fine line between problem gambling or 04105 gambling addiction and gambling too much. The critical sign of problem gambling is often hidden from awareness, with denial. Many gamblers in 04105 typically do not know they have a problem. Admitting you have a problem, or may have a problem, is the first step to recovery.

Treatment options include individual and group psychotherapy, and self-help support groups such as Gamblers Anonymous (a 12-step program for gamblers). Abstinence principles that apply to other types of addiction are also relevant in the treatment of compulsive gambling behavior in 04105.

Recently, medications such as antidepressants, opioid antagonists, and mood stabilizers have been shown to be beneficial in combination with gambling treatment by a 04105 gambling therapist or gambling therapists in 04105 or those experienced with gambling behaviors in 04105.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 04105 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 04105

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 04105 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 04105 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 04105 or family therapy in 04105.
