**Currently not accepting new patients.*** Psychotherapy is a process that allows for healing and meaningful connection. Past struggles and difficult thought patterns can cause strain on your sense of self and your relationships. My goal is to provide a warm and supportive space that allows you to share and explore what you need. As your therapist I would take great care in hearing your story and attending to our therapeutic relationship. I work with individuals, couples, and families across a spectrum of identities and backgrounds on their path toward wholeness.

Whether you are looking for a therapist for yourself, your child/ adolescent , or for you & your partner, please call me.
There is something in the human spirit that recognizes that our lives can be changed. A spark of possibility lives alongside our confusion, loss, anxiety, anger or trauma. Working with an experienced therapist provides a chance to access those possibilities, understand ourselves and our circumstances better, and bring about the changes that we want and need.

I have also done many trainings in mood disorders, anxiety disorders, couples therapy, adolescent therapy, addictions, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and energy psychology.
Life can sometimes feel and be very complicated. As a psychotherapist in private practice for 25 years, I work with adults, adolescents, families and couples. The way I approach working with people is to create a compassionate, intelligent, non-judgemental, therapeutic space where a person can feel safe, heard and understood. A person can then be more at ease with talking about their concerns and problems in an authentic and meaningful way. I welcome people from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities and family structures.

My orientation to psychotherapy is to approach every session as a creative undertaking, whether it is with an individual or a group, a couple or a family, a child, an adolescent , or an adult. This is true for every stage of the treatment process, beginning with engagement and problem clarification, with developing a working relationship based on trust, and moving constructively forward in relation to established objectives. The process of each session involves engaging purposefully to facilitate problem resolution, newness, and growth. When appropriate the course of treatment can be as brief as three sessions.

As a former teacher and early intervention provider, I have a strong understanding of child and adolescent development, school based difficulties, and learning differences.
My goal is to help individuals and families uncover their true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't always change difficult situations, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges. Seeing a situation in a new way, becoming aware of what we can and cannot control, or learning coping skills for managing our circumstances can significantly improve our daily lives.

Whether you are an adult trying to fit into a world where everyone appears to be successful or a teenager who feels completely disconnected, I can help find the peace that comes as you drop harsh self-judgments that block moving from where you are now to where you want to be.
Are you a talented, intelligent, person who walks around with feelings of anxiety depression and shame? Shame, that you feel underwater, that you are not living up to your potential, or that you maybe ruined what should have been a great life? My understanding of shame/resilience is at the core of my work as I believe that shame can significantly contribute to much of the stress and unhappiness we experience. Personally, having changed careers at midlife and walked a path that is unconventional, I deeply understand how shameful it can feel to believe you are an outsider.

“As adults, we are quick to forget how difficult the life of a teenager can be. When faced with the stressful demands of adulthood, it is easy to minimize the challenges of our teenage children. However, the demands of being a teenager can be just as stressful when you consider the pressures of school, family, friendships, and identity development. Adolescents today are faced with an abundance of information from social media that they are not emotionally ready or equipped to process.

To parents, their children are the most important part of their lives. No one wants to see their child struggle. Navigating the difficult years from preteen to adolescent to young adult can be a daunting task. In my work with young people, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help work through issues related to emotional difficulties, academic struggles, and behavioral problems. CBT focuses on learning new ways to think, feel, and behave and addresses pressing issues. As treatment progresses, I want patients to feel more able to utilize new strategies and skills while improving the quality of their life, education, relationships, and experiences.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Montclair and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
