I work with patients in individual and family therapy who suffer from anxiety, depression, personality disorders , self harm, eating disorders, and emotion dysregulation.
A key ingredient to successful therapy is having a strong therapeutic relationship. To foster this relationship I am open and honest with my client's and create an environment that allow the people I work with to feel cared for, safe, and free from judgement. My main treatment method is cognitive behavioral therapy however I take an integrative approach to treatment. I consider the individual needs of my clients, I help them regulate their emotions, manage stressors, and function effectively in their daily lives. I work with my clients collaboratively to develop interventions and coping strategies that work for them.

Individual Psychotherapy is a process of getting to know yourself and your inner world, so you can live more fully in the outer world of work, play, and relationships. In Couple or Family Therapy, I help create a safe environment in which you gradually stop criticizing each other, learn to listen and to talk about feelings, begin to understand each other, and learn new and loving ways of relating.

I have a particular interest in helping people with personality and relationship problems. In therapy I try to create an environment where patients will feel safe sharing and exploring all their thoughts and feelings about themselves, so that we can trace how these affect their daily experiences. To do this we may also examine the person's moment to moment experience in therapy. Understanding the interactions between internal assumptions on the one hand, and feelings and behavior, on the other,leads to a more stable sense of self and the possibility of different choices.

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.

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.

I treat older teens and adults experiencing challenges with anxiety, depression, interpersonal difficulties and adjustments to major life changes, such as school transitions and becoming a parent. It is easy to sometimes lose sense of who we are, as we become accustomed to the routines of our lives, and to the worries of our days - big and small. I work with clients to unpack the events and situations that led to feeling emotionally unwell, and to develop and build on skills to address these issues in order to help clients feel more empowered in making positive changes in their lives.

Therapy is about telling the truth. Listening for it, discovering it, and acknowledging it with the help of someone who makes that possible through trust. It's also about growth beyond difficult times, with guidance and encouragement. Over the last 25 years, mental health studies reveal that the most significant factor in successful outcomes is the alliance between the therapist and client. Often the practitioner's credentials, methodology, and theoretical framework are secondary. I specialize in work with couples, individuals and adolescents. My credentials include the 6-year psychotherapy privilege, the highest licensing of my profession in New York State.

In understanding that individuals in pain or having a particular challenge in life may make only one attempt at reaching out for help, I strive to welcome and set at ease every one who contacts me. Most therapy patients are ordinary people that have hit a bump in the road of life and cannot get past it on their own. My commitment, through goal directed therapy, is to help those people return to their optimal level of coping with the sometimes mild, sometimes severe challenges that life brings their way and guide them back to a sense of well being.

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.
