I also specialize in working with the LGBTQ population.
The last couple of years have left us feeling isolated, lonely and definitely confused! Plans and goals were derailed leaving some of us to wonder how things will change... I call this the "worried-well". This is a way that functioning individuals focus on the negative, despite success in everyday life. But there is a way out of this and into a more positive, life-embracing mindset!

I am an affirmative therapist who understands the issues that are faced by the LGBTQ + community (I am also part of that community).
Without the right help, mental health issues can impact your career and your family. Whether you need help with anxiety, stress, depression, or relationship conflict, I can offer you a tailor-made, professional psychotherapy service without compromising on quality. In 2010 I published research on men's health, and ever since I have been helping men to resolve their difficulties.

My clinical areas of specialty include: childhood trauma, lifelong and social anxiety, low self-esteem, male sexual health concerns, sexuality-based shame, and stressors unique to queer and kink-diverse folx.
Let’s face it, navigating life can at times be an overwhelming and emotionally isolating experience! My practice provides affirmative mental, emotional, and sexual health support for millennials. — Many of us have been socialized to "save face" and “push through” especially during times of struggle. While this may serve us in the short-term, eventually those suppressed feelings begin to impact our personal, romantic, and sexual life. Together we can slow down and lean into vulnerability as we explore what is truly concerning for you. Let’s connect to explore how I might be of support!

I have experience working with anxiety, depression, bereavement, trauma, relationship issues, parenting issues, adolescent / young adult / LGBTQ issues and eating disorders.

I am an affirmative therapist and attuned to concerns facing the LGBTQ + community.
A variety of reasons draw people to therapy. Perhaps you’re looking to develop coping skills to manage difficult symptoms which make daily functioning a challenge. Maybe you’re looking for a clearer understanding of why you interact with important people the way in which you do. Or, maybe it’s a combination of the above or to get help for your child’s emotional health as a result of family concerns, anxiety, depression or peer issues. If any of these reasons resonate, I think you’ll find my respectful, non judgmental, warm and collaborative approach to be just what you need in your journey towards greater well being.

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.

What type of Ridgewood 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 Ridgewood?
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.
