I work with many issues including but not limited to: depression, anxiety, grief/loss, trauma, addiction, life management issues, parenting issues, learning disabilities, bipolar disorder, serious illness, employment related issues and adjustment to life changes.
Sometimes life gets complicated. Confronting and discussing your feelings requires strength. In my experience, things that are never discussed are never resolved. The decision to ask for help with your concerns is a tremendous step forward. When choosing a counselor, look for someone you can easily sit across from. Then ask yourself, do you feel heard? I have listened to hundreds of stories. I respect each one as it reflects that person's journey through life. I feel privileged to play a part in that journey. I promise to do my best to help you find your way! Thank you.

I also specialize in addressing a variety of family and couples’ issues such as communication, parenting /co- parenting , blended family dynamics, health concerns, life transitions, etc.
The past year has been extremely difficult for so many and may have caused or exacerbated emotional health issues. It’s normal to feel stuck, lost or a need to recover lost parts of you. I can help you if you feel weighed down or drained of energy, feel depressed or have anxious thoughts, or lack enjoyment in your life like you use too. I know it can be hard to take the first step and ask for help, however, a new transition and transformation for your life is just around the corner. My professional focus is to work with individuals to help them find a greater sense of self and purpose in the midst of life's hardships.

Over the years, I have treated many clients who are concerned about intimacy, relationships, family dysfunction, divorce, re-marriage/step- parenting , chronic pain/illness, substance abuse, mood disorders, sexual trauma and concerns, grief and loss, and adjustment to issues of Military life.
As John Lennon wrote "Life is what happens when we're busy making other plans". Our lives have been changed significantly since March 2020. We may be still social distancing and feeling somewhat disconnected from family and friends. Many people continue to experience anxiety, depression and relationship issues as a result. Most of my clients had initial reservations about trying telehealth but, much like everything else lately, we’re resilient and go with the flow. The benefits of telehealth are that you don’t have to travel, scheduling is much easier and you can be seen wherever you have internet (must be in NJ during session).

Life presents us with moments of wonder and inevitable times of challenge. When difficulties arise, we often choose to isolate and thus make our struggles feel even more overwhelming than necessary. Taking the step to ask for help is a brave one. I am here to meet you where you are, to walk beside you, and to help you hold and manage all that hurts. Together we can discover skillful ways for you to connect with others and your own sense of purpose.

*I'm accepting clients with am/early pm availability* Unhelpful behaviors, emotions, thoughts, & beliefs sometimes indicate we don't have the words&life experiences on which to reflect and find solutions/hope. These can be an expression of unmet needs, uncommunicated truths, insufficient coping skills, and can be signals that something is not OK. There is hope. People can communicate, heal, grow, understand, empathize, & manage their lives to thrive, succeed, and feel satisfied. Together we can find a way. I also coach parents to help best understand/communicate with their child/teen/developmentally disabled adult child.

The decision to seek counseling can be a difficult one for many people, and choosing a therapist can be a daunting task. The client and therapist partnership must "work" in order for it to succeed. There must be a connection, an atmosphere of respect, support, trust, and caring - a dedication to the process by both parties. In this way, the search for understanding can bring insight, healing, growth, positive change, and a greater potential for happiness. We never know where within an individual's experience may lie the key to a breakthrough. It's a journey to well being that can begin right now.

We are all more alike than we are different. We grow into ourselves as a result of our relationships and our experiences. We want to live our best lives with a sense of meaning, purpose and belonging. Yet, for many, the challenges of everyday life; work, school, family, relationships, decisions about what to do or what direction to take, feel overwhelming and unmanageable. Therapy is a collaborative process; a journey toward increased understanding and insight.

Parenting Therapists

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
