I have expertise in treating children , adolescents, and young adults, presenting with a range of challenges including anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, trauma, ADHD and interpersonal difficulties.
The process of starting therapy can feel daunting and overwhelming, but can also be enlightening and rewarding. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I offer a collaborative approach to therapy, providing support to each individual along their journey toward self-discovery and growth. My goal is to help you identify and utilize your inherent strengths and learn adaptive skills to aide in developing a strong sense of self, reach your personal goals, effectively manage life’s challenges, and cope with emotional distress. Moreover, I believe that therapeutic work is most productive when aligned with an empathetic and nonjudgmental environment, which I intend to offer each person. I tailor treatment to meet the unique and diverse needs of every individual.

Once stated by Erik Erickson, " Children love and want to be loved and they very much prefer the joy of accomplishment". My passion comes from working with children , adolescents, and families as they learn and grow together while celebrating the joys of their own accomplishments. Providing support while managing a variety of life stressors including but not limited to school difficulties, ADHD, anxiety, and defiance are my specialty. I have gained this specialty through my work while providing therapy in Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient, and School Based Programs. Having the privilege to provide you with empathy, warmth, and empowerment on this journey is my hope.

I was the Associate Director and Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the Institute for the Study of Child Development of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
Life is filled with many opportunities as well as challenges. My goal is to help children and adolescents recognize and seize those opportunities and overcome any challenges and obstacles that get in their way. By helping them create a positive mindset, build effective coping strategies, and expand their repertoire of problem-solving skills, they can live a healthy, satisfying, and successful social and academic life. The earlier these skills are cultivated within the child or adolescent, the greater the opportunities to practice and utilize them to their benefit.

For over 25 years, I have been a New Jersey licensed psychologist providing therapy for adults, children and adolescents, as well as families and couples.
As a psychologist, I believe that good therapy builds upon a trusting, working relationship between therapist and client. For me, each client is a unique individual with his or her own special needs, feelings and life experiences. Of most importance is that my clients see me as a professional who listens with respect and empathy to what he or she tells me. My goal is to work collaboratively with all clients to help them examine and modify self-defeting beliefs and behaviors that prevent healthy and productive funcitoning in family,social and work or school settings.

What type of New Jersey mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in New Jersey?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
