My clients have included domestic and sexual violence survivors, incarcerated offenders, and LGBTQ+ individuals, among others.
Traumatic experiences can take a heavy toll, and not just in the moment. Symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or complex PTSD (CPTSD) can last for weeks, months, even years after the event. I am passionate about helping adolescents and adults heal from the effects of trauma so that you can reclaim your vitality, and establish a genuine sense of connection with yourself, others, your body and your soul. While my therapeutic approach is eclectic, Somatic Experiencing (SE) is foundational to my work. SE is a body-oriented and naturalistic approach to the resolution and healing of trauma, developed by Dr. Peter Levine.

Among my additional interests are 1) relational recovery (substance abuse ), 2)therapeutic family reunions (ranging in duration from 2 hours to weekends) to improve and heal intergenerational stresses.
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 have extensive experience working with: Depression and anxiety, addictions, relationship difficulties, sexual issues, adults with stressful life-circumstances, those coping with aging family members, survivors of childhood abuse , veterans, rescue workers, medical trauma survivors and those living with a debilitating or terminal illness.
Are you not feeling or functioning the way you used to? Are you having trouble explaining what you're feeling to others? Has someone told you that you could use some help and support? I am helpful with the process of entering therapy because I respect the significance of that decision and see it as an opportunity for positive change.

The therapists at Healing and Recovery arts are specially trained in expressive therapy; women's, gender and LGBT issues; overcoming trauma, abuse , and victimization; addiction recovery and DBT.
Do others see you as a woman who has it all together? Inside, are you feeling like you're falling apart? Do feelings of emptiness consume you? For many women suffering with emotional wounds, anxiety, isolation and hopelessness can become a daily part of life. Sometimes managing painful times from the past intrude on their ability to enjoy the present. Sometimes compulsive eating patterns, substance abuse , spending or even relationships seem like the only way to numb the pain. You don't have to face it alone. We can work together to find new solutions for wellness, healing and recovery.

If you are struggling in relationship with yourself or others due to the impact of trauma, neglect, or abuse , you will find a safe space to begin your journey toward healing and peace.
Often individuals who have experienced on-going internal or relational conflict feel stuck in a cycle that they can't seem to control no matter how many attempts or strategies they try. In the confusion and exhaustion, they give up and give in to hopelessness, low self-worth, shame, anger, and fear. This leads into more alienation, suffering, and despair. Those who want to heal the relationship with themselves and with those they love can rediscover the self that is trapped under all of the pain, anger, and fear. With empathic support, knowledge, and adequate resources, healing is possible.

I am especially equipped to work with those who are navigating developmental trauma, sexual violence , primary loss, divorce, and disordered eating.
So often in today’s world, we differentiate mental and physical health. This distinction has only further perpetuated the stigmatization of seeking help. I am a firm believer that mental health is physical health. If you were experiencing a physical health problem, you would seek help from a doctor, and the same should be true for mental health; the only difference being that we are dealing with the most important organ in our bodies: our brain.

My ideal client would be someone who is trying to make connections from their past to the present, not to relive their past, but to understand why they may be struggling in the present. Learning to let go of old habits, old ways of thinking that were dysfunctional, is key to living mindfully in the present. Changing the response to the narrative is important to be able to move forward from your past experiences.

In the sea of content available online, we may think that we can "fix" ourselves if we just have the right information, but this is not the case. We require connection for healing to occur. I practice therapy in a way that prioritizes the relationship between therapist and patient. I utilize the information gleaned from our relationship to uncover thoughts and feelings you weren’t aware of, helping you stop behaviors and ways of being that are no longer serving you. I help patients see the role trauma has played in their lives by providing education and nurturing areas of psychological growth that were suppressed because of trauma.

Worried moms & frazzled dads, look no further! Maybe your child/teen is anxious, sad, angry, or acting out. You've tried empathy, rewards, punishments, extra attention, special privileges. You've read books, consulted parenting blogs, & asked other parents for advice. Whatever you try, it may even work for a few days but then all the old problems come right back. Maybe your boy wants to dress like a girl and it's freaking you out. Maybe your teen declares "I'm queer"--what does that even mean? Let's add the stress of Covid-19, and you're exhausted, frustrated, and worried about your child's future.

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
