Dialectical Behavioral Therapy combines standard cognitive-behavioral techniques and present moment awareness.
In my twenty years of working in the mental health field, I've learned that it is not the situation that can render us helpless, but the meaning we create about the situation. The judgments we make about ourselves and others can make a situation worse, creating anxiety, depression, or undue stress. I specialize in providing therapeutic interventions to decrease self defeating patterns and negative self-talk. You will be engaged in a partnership as treatment goals are identified to personalize your care. I specialize in the following therapies: DBT , CBT, EMDR, Mindfulness Meditation, Hypnotherapy, and Imago Couple Therapy.

DBT -LBC(TM) Certified Clinician. I work in collaboration with clients so they can achieve their goals and work through any challenges they may be facing.

In a supportive way, I effectively challenge and help people shift both current and long-standing thinking and behavior patterns. While this process can be daunting, it can also be extremely vitalizing; and at the end you will find that the “dread” and “weight” can be lifted off your shoulders.

I am certified in DBT and utilize a strengths-based integrative approach.
To be self-aware and recognize that you need help is a strength that should be acknowledged. Taking the next step and finding a therapist can be both nerve-wracking and uncomfortable. While deciding to seek therapy is hard enough, finding an approachable and empathetic therapist should not be. Although it is my job to counsel and treat my clients, it is my passion to empower and encourage my clients to grow and achieve their goals. By establishing a strong rapport and a safe environment, the therapeutic relationship becomes supportive, collaborative, and non-judgmental without effort.

What type of Paramus 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Paramus?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
