Do you find yourself wanting to feel happier, feel less stressed or want to be calmer? My counseling approach is focused on using positive psychology to help achieve a happier, more fulfilling life. I believe in focusing on one's strengths, while working on one's weaknesses. I believe strengthening self-esteem is one of the keys to helping conquer any issue. I routinely treat people suffering from depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, mood disorders, relationship issues, eating disorders, and everyday stress.

I subscribe to Irving Yalom's "fellow travelers" philosophy of psychotherapy that seeks to eradicate the old hierarchy of "therapist" and "patient." I consider it a sacred honor to be walking alongside my clients on the road toward more healthy, passionate, fulfilling lives and, as such, find myself just as inspired through the process of therapy as they are.

Hello! My name is Allie, and I am a professional counselor. I decided to become a counselor because I enjoy being a support system. I have worked in partial care transitional housing facilities and have an extensive background in providing outpatient counseling services. I use a trauma-informed, holistic, and strengths-based approach with all my clients. I also commonly use CBT, MI, expressive therapy, and solution-focused strategies in sessions. Most recently, I was trained in TF-CBT by the CARES institute for adolescent survivors of abuse.

We all struggle at times; emotional and psychological anguish are part of the human condition. And yet these challenges can be reframed as an indication that change may be helpful. I am a strong believer in the profound gift that mental health support can confer and that seeking therapeutic support is an act of self-empowerment and strength. I have a private practice in Princeton, NJ where I specialize in the treatment of anxiety and depressive disorders, LGBTQIA+ issues, parenting concerns, family systems and eating disorders. In my private practice I work with preadolescents, adolescents, adults, couples and families.

Many of us struggle with everyday stressors. Whether stemming from family dynamics, work difficulties, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, low self esteem, identity confusion or a combination of contributors, these stressors can have a profound effect on our quality of life. Finding change and accepting support is a journey that takes time, compassion and patience. I offer psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families with a strengths-based approach, aimed at making clients feel engaged and vested in their treatment process. Through self reflection and collaborative efforts, I work with clients to balance these life stressors and make them more manageable.

If you are looking to understand yourself better and develop an honest, open relationship with your (human) therapist, I might be a good fit for you. I have helped people survive and heal from trauma, loss, and disappointment to find a greater sense of agency in their lives. My practice is informed by research and theory, but I try to use everyday, non-technical language in my work.

I use an integrative and collaborative psychotherapeutic approach, working to nurture the relationship between my clients and myself, with curiosity, warmth, and humor. Some people like to resolve specific issues quickly. Others prefer a slower pace and an emphasis on safety and trust. Still others are eager for in-depth, insight-oriented therapy, delving into the past, searching for new meaning and ways of being. Whatever the intensity and focus, I seek to help people find ways to help lead fuller richer lives, alleviate distress, deal with life's challenges, and improve relationships.

As a psychologist, I appreciate the opportunity to witness peoples’ capacity for not only surviving, but also thriving in today’s complicated world. My experience over the past decade has brought me to understand the many ways a therapist’s role is akin to that of a gardener tending to a lotus. Just as the young lotus needs tender care and stillness, I provide a safe, nurturing and collaborative environment. Respecting the lotus’s need for sunlight, I approach therapy with warmth, openness and humor. As a Confucian scholar once said, “I love the lotus because while growing from mud, it is unstained.”

At Princeton Family Institute we provide psychotherapy to families, couples and individuals from a culturally sensitive collaborative family systems perspective. I work with a range of problems:depression, anxiety, school refusal, child behavior problems, arrested emotional independence, substance abuse recovery, anorexia, and family and couples' conflict. In child-focused issues, I believe children should not alone bear the burden of change. I enlist family members as a resource in problem-solving. Parents and I work as a team to help their children. I welcome individuals, couples, and families whose problems have not been successfully addressed through other therapeutic approaches.

I am both an art therapist and counselor with many years of experience working with individuals challenged with issues such as anxiety, low self-esteem and difficulties adjusting to life's changes. I can help you express and explore your core beliefs and concerns in a safe, calming, non-judgmental environment. In addition to traditional verbal therapy, I offer art therapy, mindfulness, and creative writing/journaling. *Art Therapy allows for expression of feelings using materials such as markers, paint, and pastels. It is a non-threatening and more immediate method to voice issues; drawing ability is not important.

Recognizing these feelings and reaching out for therapeutic support during these times is a sign of strength and resiliency that can go a long way towards growth and healing.

“Hang on to your hat. Hang on to your hope. And wind the clock, for tomorrow is another day.”– E.B. White This insane and painful year is coming to an end. Maybe now, you can get out of survival mode and start thinking about how to improve your life. You are so grateful for hanging onto your current job, but long for something better. Maybe in a company with a more dynamic culture, better compensation or opportunities for advancement. Or maybe you want to explore other options that possibly offer greater satisfaction. Yet, how to get from here to there may feel completely overwhelming. You just know you feel stuck.
