About

I address issues around anxiety, depression, and self-esteem. This is especially focused on your effectiveness in your personal and work life. I can help you to better understand your interpersonal relationships and find more constructive responses and approaches to them. In addition, I enjoy doing premarital counseling. I can support you in addressing trauma (including emotional, sexual, and physical abuse) and bereavement to move you through stages of healing to attain your goals of whole and deeper connection to others. I can also assist you clarify your sexual identity and find ways to communicate about it with others.
One aspect of my practice has been my work with clients who are concerned about integrating their faith orientation with their therapeutic work. I am open to various spirituality orientations and faith traditions, although particularly experienced with Christians.( New 3rd location - 107 Strawtown Rd., West Nyack,NY 10994)
My professional experience extends to situations of clergy sexual abuse. I have worked with those involved, including the church governing bodies and their supervisory role in these matters as it extends to both clergy and parishioner. I also have experience with a mediation team focusing on the same.
