Long term problems do not necessarily require long term solutions. By employing the latest evidence based treatments, I aim to maximize durable change in the least amount of time. As my client, you will find me to be a patient & empathic listener. I strive to view life through your eyes so that I can be best positioned to help you attain rapid improvement. Together we will develop a plan that targets your areas of concern. As part of the therapy process, I will teach you empowering techniques that will enable you, after you leave therapy, to become your own master therapist to yourself.
It seems like the world right now is collectively having a “WTF” moment where even keeping track of the day proves to be a daily challenge. It may feel like you are riding a never-ending rollercoaster of emotions that flow between sadness, helplessness, confusion, boredom, anxiety, anger, and that's all before breakfast! Maybe you are experiencing some guilt for not starting all those projects now that you have an "abundance of free time." Or feel so emotionally wiped out that you only have enough energy to watch Netflix while depleting your quarantine snack supply. AND all of this is on top of the regular life stressors!
You're busy, and that's part of the problem. You’ve been thinking about therapy for a while -- between getting it done at work, parenting your ass off, trying to be the partner you think your partner deserves, managing family obligations, PTA, book club, carpool… In fact, thoughts of therapy have probably popped up as you’re lying in bed at night worrying through your mental to-do list for tomorrow while too exhausted to sleep and knowing that tomorrow won’t provide any more of a break than today did (spoiler alert: there was no break). And you just want a friggin' rest without worrying that those you love won't suffer for it.
Does it feel like things are falling apart? It is as if you lost the ability to manage your life. You may feel overwhelmed with strong emotions, and at the same time strangely disconnected. It feels like your emotions are working against you.
I am passionate about working with men and women ages 18 years-old to older adults who are navigating life’s challenges, who feel blue, overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, angry, who are not able to concentrate in college or at the workplace, who are unsettled due to their trauma and utilize bad coping skills. I help individuals grow while they feel stuck and shut down. I provide various forms of therapeutic treatment, not just talk therapy. My experience and trainings are broad from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, EMDR, Trauma Therapy, Empty Chair, and Hypnosis.
Each individual has the ability to make healthy changes to address areas they find of concern. Dealing with these life challenges on your own can be very difficult. Fortunately, counseling can help. My specialties include but are not limited to, depression, addiction, anxiety, codependency, and anger management. I have much experience with the gay and lesbian population. I work from a client centered, eclectic and humanistic model to address your individual needs. We will collaborate and develop a treatment approach that will best address your needs.
I have been providing counseling and consulting services for over 35 years. My office is conveniently located in the Princeton area.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor in the State of New Jersey, offering counseling to individuals seeking help for emotional issues that are affecting their sense of satisfaction and well-being in their lives.
My priority in treatment is to provide a safe, relaxing, non-threatening atmosphere, where individuals will feel "listened to/really understood", in examining whatever issues or concerns might be preventing them from experiencing happy, peaceful, and fulfilling lives.
I work with adults, older adults, couples, and college students. My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety and relationship issues. I'm also interested in women's issues and assertiveness. I tailor therapy to each individual client, rather than taking a "one size fits all" approach. So, with one person, therapy might focus on solving some current problem or crisis, for another it might be learning stress management techniques, and for another it could be working to resolve issues and trauma from earlier in life. Most often, it's a little, or a lot, of all of these things.
** Please note that I only have daytime appointments available at this time. I do not have any afternoon/evening appointments available. ** As a therapist I work with children, adolescents, adults and their families to improve relationships and decrease family stress. My goal is to leave people with strategies, communication skills, and ways of thinking that can be transferred from the therapy room to everyday life - to parenting, friendships, family dynamics, and just enjoying each moment.
At Princeton Family Institute we provide psychotherapy to families, couples and individuals from a culturally sensitive collaborative family systems perspective. I work with a range of problems:depression, anxiety, school refusal, child behavior problems, arrested emotional independence, substance abuse recovery, anorexia, and family and couples' conflict. In child-focused issues, I believe children should not alone bear the burden of change. I enlist family members as a resource in problem-solving. Parents and I work as a team to help their children. I welcome individuals, couples, and families whose problems have not been successfully addressed through other therapeutic approaches.
