"Every moment is a fresh beginning." ,T.S. Eliot. There are opportunities to have a fresh beginning every moment of your day. I have that hope for you and all my clients. Through my empathic, direct and experienced clinical skills and strong background working with children, adolescents and families in crisis, I can help empower you and your family. I provide a safe and therapeutic setting for emotional, social and familial growth to motivate my clients and families to be successful in their current and future lives.
All of us face challenging moments in our lives that create a sense of urgency for change or a need for extra support. With over 20 years of experience in the field of mental health and alternative healthcare, both as a practitioner and an educator, my practice is grounded in empathy, intuition, and building a strong therapeutic alliance.
Are you feeling down most of the time? Do you constantly worry about your future? Do you have problems relating to others? If some of these questions speak to you, you may want to talk to a trained therapist, who can help you to sort out the things in your life and help you to regain the lost time you spent alone. Some of the feelings you may have are quite normal. However, it becomes a problem when such emotions and feelings impede the daily functioning of your life, such as inability to work, difficulties with family relationships and friendships.
I am a licensed psychologist in NJ and NY and I have been working as a clinical psychologist for 13 years to improve my patients' quality of life, strengthen their relationships, and develop self awareness, emotional stability, and a positive sense of self. I welcome individuals, couples, and families, as well as young adults and adults. My patients often come to me seeking relief from stress, anxiety, and depression; I help them to develop better coping skills, mindfulness, and improved adjustment and communication skills. At times in life, many of us will require guidance in various areas to navigate interpersonal challenges:
Are you looking for a different way to respond to situations in your life? Although we know that "HOW" we respond is critical...we often feel we have little control over our response. We can lose sight of our better judgment, our strengths, and miss opportunities to either make the situation better or our response better. In our efforts to get rid of our problems or shoo them away, they are on our minds even more...making us feel overwhelmed and helpless. Considering or imagining other ways, of responding or looking at situations, is a matter of training the mind.
In my practice I work with adults coping with depression, anxiety, parenting issues, relationship struggles, substance abuse and other problems of adjustment. My work with children and adolescents include: learning disabilities, ADHD, autism, oppositional defiance, anxiety, depression, and family conflict. I believe that a collaborative alliance based on mutual respect and understanding is the cornerstone of therapeutic change. I encourage client's to take an active role in the therapeutic process, while I aspire to remain as transparent as possible in this collaborative partnership.
Wildrose Psychotherapy clinicians believe the most important ingredient to achieve change, is a strong connection between the client and therapist. We are caring, empathetic and knowledgeable about interpersonal and relational issues. Your increased personal fulfillment and happiness, as well as learning how to manage your issues, are just a few of the benefits of therapy. Let's work through challenging issues such as parenting, divorce, substance abuse, negative self image, phobias and anxiety. . We are passionate about our work and look forward to working with you in a respectful environment.
Choosing a psychotherapist is a very personal decision that I view with respect and humility. Whether dealing with depression, anxiety, marital or relationship issues, family problems, grief, adjustment issues, or any of the social emotional reasons that you are seeking help for, I am committed to approaching our work together with a personal and collaborative approach to problem-solving. My belief is you are the expert of your life, but that when problems occur, a non-judgmental and objective perspective can help to clear the barriers away that are blocking you in a safe and trusting space.
Life is stressful. We cope with pressures from spouses, parents, children, friends, work and school. Sometimes we need some help to move forward, to develop, to grow.
It is worthwhile to try therapy to see how it can be helpful to you. My goal is to empower people to find solutions and change self defeating patterns. We will work together to actively focus on your goals.
I provide individual, couples, family and group therapy for adults and children. I am located in a private, comfortable, professional office in Oradell, New Jersey.
When faced with life's challenges, sometimes we need help. Problems concerning marriage, family, and work can be emotionally draining, but with guidance, we have the resilience to work through these challenges. My practice focuses on trouble-shooting hardships; whether these hardships are personal, between partners, or within a family, the goal of our meetings is healthy functioning in the face of difficult situations. Emotional freedom is found as people increase their self-confidence. As clients progress through treatment, they often realize an improved "self" in addition to relief in the area they intended to "fix". This improved "self" enhances all areas of their lives.
Making the decision to seek counseling can be an anxious time. It is important to select a good therapist that can help you work toward your goals. Therapy can be positive and rewarding, if you are committed to the process. It can give you a chance to explore thoughts and feelings regarding your relationships, family, professional life and overall happiness. Therapy can be active and solution-focused, or quiet and reflective. Most importantly it is always collaborative. I help clients work towards goals in a safe, nonjudgmental manner.
Even when we know that it is time to make a change, fear has a way of trying to hold us back. It’s courage that pushes us beyond that fear, to the place we deserve to be. Challenges related to work, school, family, and health can be overwhelming. If not addressed, these issues begin to spill over into the parts of our lives that were previously well. The good news is that there are positive ways to navigate life’s tests, and I am happy to help explore these paths with you. I work with people making small tweaks and huge overhauls to their lives. To me the size of change is a matter of perspective.

I bring over 25 years of experience as a clinical social worker and decades of life experience to my practice as a psychotherapist.

Pregnancy and birth can be a beautiful and fulfilling journey. However, sometimes the journey is not so beautiful, and things don’t go as you had expected. During pregnancy or postpartum, 1 in 5 mothers can experience a mood or anxiety disorder with symptoms that are more than just the “baby blues.” It may be surprising, but fathers can also experience paternal depression or anxiety. Seeking support for perinatal mood and anxiety issues including those related to infertility, miscarriage, premature birth, having a baby placed in the NICU, pregnancy loss, and pregnancy after loss can help.
I work from an empathic perspective which means I want to come to know you in a non-judgmental way at a pace that is comfortable to you. Do you find yourself searching for answers, unable to find satisfaction in both work and relationships? Are you searching for something greater and more in life that never seems to come? Do you feel you are somehow undercutting yourself, demeaning your accomplishments? Are you feeling alienated from others in social situations or when around other people?
I aim to empower individuals (children, adolescents, adults) and families to discover healthier ways of living. I believe therapy can be beneficial to anyone looking to get through a difficult time in their life. I practice an integrative approach which includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution-focused therapeutic models with my clients. I help my clients to process their current thoughts, feelings and behaviors and develop effective solutions to their presenting issues. I encourage clients to make positive changes both in the present and future to live the best possible life they can live.
We live in a world of immense pressure. Both adults and children have to struggle with an exhausting list of responsibilities, a deluge of constant communication, and for many of us, the residual impact of trauma. We are pulled in so many different directions. It can feel isolating. It can feel overwhelming. But we can get through it. Everything you need to do so is already inside of you. Managing anxiety, coping with depression, resolving trauma, improving relationships, all of it is possible. Congratulations on taking the brave first step towards taking control and establishing a new pace of your life.
