I believe that each person is the expert on their “self” and has the ability to grow and heal. My role is to support/offer resources to best facilitate each person’s innate resiliency. I also believe this process takes effort, and reaching out for help if you or your child have been struggling is a crucial step. I've worked in a variety of settings for the past 8 years and with issues such as family relationships, trauma, mood disorders, chronic illness, grief, LGBTQI+ issues, and cooccurring developmental disorders. I'm trained in TF-CBT, EMDR, DBT, and other modalities.

My ideal client is one who is interested in finding happiness in love, work and community. My joy during my 30 years in practice is to experience, with individuals and couples, their growth towards these goals. Years in private practice and a major medical setting in New York have given me a broad background in helping people cope with the many challenges life hands them and to help them regain their feelings of hope. Additional focus is placed on life transitions including divorce, retirement, and bereavement. Additionally, I offer guidance in helping your children and teens navigate those challenging years.

I enjoy working with people to identify new ways to cope with the challenges life brings to us. I encourage bringing your strengths as coping tools while joining in problem solving or problem identification. Expressive arts, dream work, and Sandplay are also ways that I work with those who prefer modalities other than talk therapy.

*Not accepting new clients at this time.* I work with couples and individuals and support relationship concerns, trauma, depression, anxiety, etc. I have found effective growth and change is rooted in a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. In my holistic approach, I evaluate and challenge the mind, body and emotions. This provides external skills and internal growth that makes for lasting effects in relationship and within self. I truly believe that people are resilient. When someone is motivated to change, given the opportunity to be understood, validated and compassionately challenged, they can meet their therapy goals.

You are unique and special just like everyone else. This phrase resonates with me. I have had the privilege of experiencing life's good, bad and ugly. When life’s path and rhythm are suddenly thwarted, we may feel powerless, vulnerable, distrustful and out of control. We have little to no idea how to maneuver our life’s steering wheel to get ‘back on track.’ This could lead to worsening or ‘stuck’ conditions reinforcing the negative thoughts and feelings at hand. Like you, all of us experience these waves at several points throughout our lives. My own healing was through insight, guidance and support while engaged in counseling.

Do you believe there is something terribly wrong with you and you don't understand where it is coming from? Transactional Analysis shows us our personality is formed by age six where the combination of the messages we receive from our parents and how we learned to adapt to those messages form our life script, or pattern of behavior we repeat to get our needs met. The problem occurs when we grow up and the scripted behaviors no longer meet our adult needs, limiting our experiences in life. The script can be changed in order to adjust to our adult needs and desires. I can facilitate this process using Redecision Therapy.

You are good at bottling up your pain or minimizing the issues coming up in your life and relationships. In the past, you may have experienced feeling unsafe, hurt, or being without control which all continue to impact you regularly. Even though you are reflective and self-aware, you keep hitting walls when it comes to working towards change. This is both frustrating and exhausting. Yet, you do want things to be different.

You are doing life--going to work, to school--but it's not easy! And it's exhausting presenting as if all's OK all the time: to put on the smile, to muster the energy. But that little voice still whispers negativity in the back of your head: All. The. Damn. Time. You don't know how to take appreciation, much less see it in yourself. You don't know how to say no. And you just want some peace and the sense that you exist outside the needs of others.

I believe in working collaboratively, as opposed to unilaterally. My client may not yet know specifically what their needs are at the start, but we will figure it out. Therapy should not last forever, so we will work to discover solutions together. My clients will have a desire to effect change in their lives, including issues associated with mood regulation, inattentiveness, opposition and/or defiance, personality disorders, substance abuse, other concerns identified by the client.
