Thank you for your interest in my practice. I work primarily with older adolescents and adults who seek help in dealing with stress, challenging relationships and life transitions, including loss. I work collaboratively with my clients toward reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression. I believe that within the context of a supportive therapy relationship individuals can develop insight into the roots of their struggles and effective strategies for change. In addition, I specialize in the use of a harm reduction approach in the treatment of young adults who struggle with alcohol or other drugs. See WWW.THE-DRINKING-GAME.COM

Therapy can be a healing and ultimately freeing journey. In my experience, it allows individuals at any age to get in touch with and learn to understand their feelings. In being able to better understand ourselves, we can better recognize not only what prevents us, but also, what allows us to have a more fulfilling life. There is no better feeling as a therapist than seeing your clients realize and embrace their inner strengths, humbling resilience, and acquire the tools to manage their struggles in healthier and more productive ways.

I believe the quality of the client/counselor relationship is a major factor in the success of therapy. I bring honesty, humor, warmth, and a profound respect for my clients' struggles to every session. My approach is interactive, gently challenging, and problem/solution focused. Using psychodynamic and cognitive modalities, I help clients explore the beliefs holding them back, help them develop their strengths, and learn new coping skills.

I believe therapy is a tool used to help guide people in achieving the life goals they set for themselves. If you have a teenager experiencing depression, anxiety, or identity conflicts call me to discuss how I can help. If you are an adult feeling stuck, having relationship conflicts, employment stress or grief/loss I look forward to hearing from you. I will work with you to learn skills to manage life’s challenges while identifying past experiences that may be driving the decisions you make today.

We fear being vulnerable. We run from difficult feelings. We seek approval of others. We feel ashamed of our emotional baggage. Worst part is, we often try to hide these under our mask because of shame, fear, and anxiety. But hiding in shame only makes us feel worse about ourselves with isolation, emptiness, and a sense of self-hatred. In my practice, I support my clients to feel accepted, validated with no judgement. To promote healing and growth, I sit through difficult emotions until self-acceptance and self-compassion is communicated and received in a safe space.

I value building a supportive alliance that is based on honesty and frank communication. I have received excellent training from mental health experts in three major hospitals in the NYC area. My approach is psychoanalytic integrated with cognitive behavioral, emotionally focused and mindfulness approaches. Most importantly, we talk together to find out what works best for you. I am especially well suited to working with trauma victims, couples and families, and those with an interest in the bodymind perspective. Years spent living abroad inspired an interest in cross cultural dynamics and diversity.

You are seeking help from an experienced therapist and that is the first step toward feeling better! Whether worried, overwhelmed, resentful, and/or "down-in-the dumps," you are reaching out to a professional, with whom you can feel safe to be yourself and tell your story. Sometimes it is difficult to say out loud what you have not wanted to articulate; however healing takes place when you begin to share, feel understood and problem-solve. We may discover patterns of behavior that are not in your best interest, and explore ways to affect change toward a more satisfying life.

New patients and referrals often ask me how I practice. My reply is usually that it is up to them! Since I have been trained and have considerable experience in a variety of approaches (cognitive, behavoral, psychodynamic,couple therapy),it really depends on which approach would be most effective and acceptable to them. Because of different personality types, people do not all respond well or the same to only one approach dictated by someones training. Most find this non cookie cutter approach and attention very effective and rewarding.

I am a licensed psychotherapist dedicated to helping individuals establish a clear vision for their lives that incorporates both personal desires and professional goals. Different points in life present different challenges. Are you relatively new to the workforce and trying to figure out your career path? Do you feel stuck in a job or profession that you've outgrown? Has a life change (marriage, parenthood, eldercare) altered your priorities? Perhaps you're contemplating a life makeover but don't know how to proceed. These are areas where I can help.

There is a lot that pulls you in a thousand directions as a mom. You're expected to run a seamless household, support your family, spend time with friends, and look good while doing it all. Advice from family and friends doesn't help much, and instead it leaves you more confused. Your older family members suggest parenting with a heavy hand how you were raised, but that doesn't feel good to you, or your kids. You wonder... how is it that other mothers seem to have it all together? You can allow motherhood to take over your well-being, or you can get support from a licensed therapist - who looks like you and totally gets it.

Rize-Up Together was started by three women of The Bronx who realized that often times the services provided to low socio-economic communities is lacking quality care. We noticed these communities where confronted with long wait times, disrespectful admins, and subpar treatment. The one and only purpose was to exploit the community for profit without providing the level of care deserved. Rize-Up Together began from the inspiration to provide quality mental health care to the poorest of communities and treating the clients of this community the same way a rich patient would be treated in a clinic treating affluent clients.

My office is a safe and judgment free space where my clients can talk openly about the challenges they face. I utilize a holistic therapeutic approach which explores my client’s whole self. This includes their physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social being. Participating in therapy does not remove or eliminate life's challenges; however, it can help clients learn strategies and coping mechanisms to deal with them. I concentrate on my client’s strengths, using CBT, as well as, other treatment modalities. I have over 20 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families.

What type of Leonia 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 Leonia?
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.
