My approach is sourced from attachment, existential and humanistic theories, applied through Psychodynamic, Emotionally Focused and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Do you ever feel alone in a room full of people or lonely in what should be a loving relationship? Are you anxious or sad and don't know why (or maybe do)? If you struggle to connect, to trust, to reach out, to pursue what you desire or to stop doing what doesn't work, our work together will begin with creating a safe, open, inquisitive, and engaging relationship with me. I believe the connection and strong alliance with the therapist is essential for developing a secure base from which you can gain the confidence to understand yourself in new ways and to explore and pursue more meaningful changes professionally and relationally.

I am currently only offering tele-health services. I have trained in a variety of mental health settings treating adolescents and adults. These settings include hospitals, community clinics and private practice. I believe that therapy is an essential way to understand how the emotional and physical bodies are connected. Gaining insight of the internal self, and learning the mind-body connection, guides us to acknowledging and accepting our actions, reactions, and behaviors. Throughout my career I have worked with individuals struggling with fertility issues, trauma, anxiety, self-esteem, depression, and martial discord.

Many of my clients feel stuck or have reached an impasse in their lives that they have not yet been able to find a way around. Many feel frustrated, or even doubt that it will get better. Many are feeling overwhelmed with chronic stress, feel exhausted, and keep pushing themselves to pull through. Many, understandably feel they have to do it themselves and know of no other way of being. I find working with these strong individuals to be the most rewarding, as I feel honored to witness their meaningful process unfold.

Learning how to hold space for yourself and your emotions can be difficult. You deserve a space to slow down, take a breath, and connect with what matters most to you. Therapy can be that space for you. I specialize in working with humans who are experiencing anxiety, depression, burnout, or are in the midst of life changes or have experienced trauma in life. We'll access a place inside you that allows you to become more curious and aware of the unconscious processes currently running your life. I also work a great deal with couples to understand the very same unconscious processes running their relationships.

It is my pleasure and privilege to work with individuals, couples and families in my Ridgewood private practice. Since receiving my Ph.D. in 1998, I have had the opportunity to offer psychotherapy to late teens and adults who are struggling with issues related to mood, anxiety, body image, self worth and relationships. I take a highly interactive approach to treatment, engaging with my patients as they explore the obstacles to their optimal spiritual, mental, physical and emotional well-being. Our goal, working together, is to turn those obstacles into opportunities for openness and integrity in personal and relationship issues.

We are "all much more simply human than otherwise," wrote Harry Stack Sullivan, meaning that we, and our problems and difficulties in living, are not as unique to us as they may seem. Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche wrote "We all must simply become who we are." Easy to say... but being able to live it is another matter. My patients find in me someone who can accept and amplify possibilities to which they (and their partners and families) may be blind. My purpose as a psychotherapist is to help you become your best self, by listening to you, hearing you, responding to you, helping you voice yourself.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
