Most of the work I do is with people struggling with the impact of trauma, including destructive behaviors and conflicted relationships. As a trauma survivor, I know how difficult it can be to rebuild your life and to learn to trust yourself and others. I am committed to helping my clients identify the sources of their pain, learn to tolerate those emotions, and develop new ways to cope and to live.

I work with clients looking to overcome and sustain changes in life. I've spent nearly four decades learning and teaching at the former St. Vincent’s Hospital dept. of Psychiatry in Manhattan’s West Village treating children, adolescents and adults. The issues: family crises; trauma; learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, asperger's syndrome; mood instability and the paralyzing effects of anxiety/panic. It takes grit, patience; the right educational space and faith in growth. I coach clients into enriching and sustainable university and graduate school placements and writers into a safe free creative space.

During my life, I've come to notice that opportunities present themselves frequently, but it's about the desire for the acceptance of change, or the fear in doing so that makes the difference. One must have the ability to want to change and better themselves. I've allowed myself to seize every moment, despite any circumstances in front of me, and I encourage you to do the same. If you can't on your own, I am here to help you by building the mental framework that is needed, so you can acquire all of your dreams and goals.

Ideally, we use an eclectic approach with therapy. Encompassing one particular approach is not beneficial - a "one size fits all" is counter therapeutic and does not allow the client to find refreshing avenues to discover abstinence/sobriety. Coupling our therapeutic approaches with Self-Help immersion, or non-traditional means, is well received. Additionally, we focus on developing a relapse prevention plan from the very first session. We call these "living, breathing documents which change throughout treatment". Please feel free to call with any questions you may have for yourself or loved one.

Can talking about your problems really make things better? Well, sometimes a thoughtful structured approach to life's challenges can be very helpful. But sometimes talking just doesn't seem to make our lives different. When we go through something challenging, upsetting, or overwhelming, our bodies are involved in the response. This means to resolve the issue, our bodies need to be involved in addressing the solution.

I believe it is essential to work through past traumas and to look at how community and family systems develop identity and, at times, may perpetuate behaviors that keep people in a cycle of self-defeat, poor choices, and a feeling of being stuck. I use an integrative approach with a look at the root causes of the issues you may be experiencing. Together we explore techniques tailored to your needs and goals, so that you can achieve optimum wellness. My counseling begins with building a safe and strong therapeutic alliance to help you meet your goals and care for your needs. Visit: https://elysiancounseling.clientsecure.me/
