DBT is an evidence-based approach to help individuals who experience emotional dysregulation, suicidal ideation , impulsivity, and self-harm.
Crisis is defined as a crucial stage or turning point, and my goal is to help you to effectively navigate this turning point in your life. Often people struggle to manage their intense emotions and have difficulty with relationships and managing life issues. I work with individuals, couples, and families to help reduce overall distress, develop more effective communication, and build or improve relationships. I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) through Behavioral Tech, and identify targets and teach skills to reduce stress and intense emotions to maintain balance and build a life worth living, and use a DBT-informed approach to treatment.

With 12+ yrs of working in Emergency Rooms, I have handled suicide assessments, mental illness, behavioral problems, hospitalizations and grief counseling.
Therapy is weird. I get it. You are sharing your secrets with a stranger. The relationship between the therapist and the client is the most important aspect of therapy. I have worked with single mothers, couples, families, children/teenagers, and the LGBT community. With over 15 years of experience, there is not much I have not seen. I treat my clients like I would want my family members to be treated, with respect, compassion, sincerity and honesty. I also believe therapy can be fun as well as constructive and valuable.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by life’s challenges? Feeling at a loss as to how to manage so many emotions at once? Perhaps you are adjusting to an important transition, such as graduating, getting a new job, or moving. Maybe you have experienced life circumstances you did not foresee, such as loss of a loved-one. Sometimes we are not prepared for what life throws in our direction, which can lead us to feel anxious, isolated, insecure or depressed. Not a fun feeling, right? By coming to therapy, we can work on helping you feel more at ease with navigating these hardships. Asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness.

I am also a Lyme Literate counselor and as such have worked with other chronic complex illnesses. In the work that I do, I have found it key to highlight and appreciate differences in perception so we can explore how they lead to communication barriers. Celebrating diversity and uniqueness is important to healing.

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.
