My clients are children, adolescents, adults and parents experiencing life stressors, struggling with relationships, striving for personal growth or seeking change. My work commonly addresses symptoms such as anxiety, depression or general difficulty functioning in one or more areas. I use an eclectic and collaborative style to best serve each client. My highly individualized and integrative approach draws from a variety of techniques depending on specific therapeutic goals and needs. When working with children and adolescents, I find it is important and most effective if I collaborate closely with their parents to support the family system and promote optimal outcomes.

Change and well being are possible. Relationships and circumstances of life often present challenges that overwhelm us mentally, emotionally, and physically. As a result we develop blocks in our thinking, feelings, and develop physical symptoms that cause distress and prevent us from functioning at an optimal level. I am dedicated to understanding your unique experiences and history. Together we develop a plan creating a well balanced integration between thoughts, feelings, and behavior. Development of trust and the practice of mindful awareness enables self reflection, clarity of perspective and compassionate understanding of your history as it impacts present day choices.

I firmly believe that life is easier lived when lived in relationship. In relationship, we can receive support, understanding, growth, and acceptance, making difficult life experiences much more bearable. We find and make relationships in so many domains; at home, with friends, in communities, and even with a therapist. That is why I think finding a therapist you feel safe with is so important.

Guiding you in accessing resources for your own healing is some of the work we will do in therapy. I work with clients in a holistic and authentic manner that strives to explore and hold space for multiple aspects of the human experience. I offer therapy that is grounded by strong theoretical frameworks, applied with a creative, client-led approach. Process art has become a foundation of the work I do with children and adolescents, providing a mode of expression that encourages the development of freedom and control which equates to regulation. Children have fun and learn self-regulation skills simultaneously.

Effective counseling, like effective parenting and teaching, involves understanding where someone is at in their growth process and providing them with a safe space and the supports essential to move to the next level. Developmentalists refer to this as "scaffolding". Like scaffolding for a building, these external supports are specific and put in place to allow for expansion and strengthening. Now, think about your favorite mentor or coach. It is likely that they provided support and encouragement that was a good match for you. As a counselor, I provide these supports, assisting my clients in reaching their greatest potential.

You don’t ever have to go at it alone. I thank you for having the courage to begin this journey. I often describe my work as a journey as much of my role in this work involves being a co-pilot or co-author of your story. I seek to help individuals become the best version of themselves as they work through unresolved issues, trauma, or maladaptive patterns that have led to stuckness or got in the way of their happiness. As your therapist, I will encourage you to integrate all parts of yourself by becoming aware of much of what has shaped who you are.

We are collectively experiencing trauma at this time due to the pandemic, climate change, violence in our communities, political strife, etc. Trauma therapy techniques can help us explore how direct or indirect challenges are impacting our lives. Together, with kindness and compassion, we will gain a deep understanding of your life experience and identify, augment, and employ your strengths to the fullest. Individual growth and stability is possible when we are willing to look at all aspects of ourselves and apply that learning and understanding when navigating our personal lives in the chaotic world we are living in.

Carving out time to air your concerns with a therapist you are comfortable with can bring relief and help you navigate a path that feels meaningful, fulfilling, and authentic. I work primarily with individual adults. Some of my areas of focus are: identity, anxiety, depression, relationships, stress, self-esteem, adoption, coping skills, spirituality, trauma, LGBTQ+, life crises and transitions. Often when you address one area, clarifying and working with what is within your control, other areas improve as well, as you access your strengths.

What type of Montclair 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 Montclair?
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.
