By the time you reach out for therapy, chances are you've tried to feel better on your own long enough. You've reached the point where you want and need to feel better quickly. While this is never guaranteed, it is always the goal of our work together. I believe that promptly finding the right connection with a therapist is of utmost importance. There is no time to "shop around" for the right fit, telling your story over and over again without feeling any relief. I have recently narrowed my client base to Young Adults, ages seventeen through forty five, struggling with anxiety, depression and substance use disorder.

The cornerstone of my practice is a simple but incredibly vital one: providing empathy. I will listen to you and work to truly see and hear you. We all have different, unique stories and it’s so important to honor those in our therapeutic work together. By better understanding your story, I can then assist you in breaking down the challenges you’re facing into more manageable pieces so you don’t have to feel defined or limited by them. I will also guide you in recognizing your own strengths and work actively with you to develop healthy coping strategies to better manage your anxiety, depression, everyday stress or life transitions.

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?
