In that time, I've become very familiar with children who have school-related problems, as well as psychological testing and special education laws.
Let's face it, it's not easy coming to the decision to seek out counseling, let alone calling a complete stranger to do so. My hope is that, if you decide to take this step to contact me, we will not be strangers for long. I have been a clinician in various capacities for over 15 years and have always worked very hard to make people feel comfortable talking to me. During those years I have developed a general practice where I have seen people for anxiety, depression, parenting, marriage and sexuality.

Often when people are faced with life's challenges, they do not realize how strong they can be. I work with children and families who are struggling with the impact of divorce, learning disabilities, sudden or chronic illness, disability, trauma, loss, neglect or abuse. Challenges can be difficult but they can also lead us to new emotional growth. My strength-based approach will help you and/or your children grow closer together, heal emotionally and find inner resiliency. I am committed to navigating with you, side by side, to help you be the best you can be!

Marriage & Family Therapist, LCSW, LMFT
I specialize in treating both couples in trouble and children with behavioral problems in the context of their family.
Nearly thirty years ago I was began my family therapy training with one of the most highly-regarded figures in the field, Dr. Salvador Minuchin. Since then, I have worked with couples reeling from affairs, or on the verge of divorce, people suffering from anxiety or depression, and children with "acting out" behavior or identified as having ADHD. My long experience as a family therapist has only deepened my appreciation for the trials and triumphs of the human condition. I work relatively briefly, and often successfully, with those who have tried other therapies, without improvement.

I've also been trained extensively and worked a lot with children and adolescents and their families.
I believe that each person has a unique self that must respected, recognized and understood. In order to find the right therapist I feel that there has to be a sense of connection and trust that develops over time. I try to help people understand how connections to their past and their fear of the future and of change keeps them trapped in cycles of behavior amd relationships that hinder their chances for a more fulfilling life and following their goals and dreams. I can work with anyone who attempts this experience of working together and exploring their life issues.

I have been working with families for over 20 years. During this time I have worked with children , adolescents, adults and couples. Many people begin therapy to work towards moving aside obstacles or issues that prevent movement forward, whatever that looks like to them...it is all individual. Although my expertise has always been in working with adolescents dealing with social, emotional, family or school issues, I feel equally capable when working with a family, a couple or an individual towards their goal.

I am a psychologist who has provided psychotherapy and psychological testing services to children , adolescents, and adults for over 30 years. I have developed a particular interest in working with hypersensitive children and in the differential diagnosis of ADHD and Bipolar Disorder. Many of the pervasively hypersensitive children and adolescents with whom I work have come to me with a diagnosis of ADHD, but are then found, after a thorough evaluation, to have either an anxiety or mood disorder. As a therapist who works primarily with children and adolescents, I have found that when children feel understood and valued, they connect.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Registered Play Therapist - Supervisor with over 20 years experience working with children , teens, adults, and families managing life's struggles.
Therapy can be a healing and ultimately freeing journey. In my experience, it allows individuals at any age to get in touch with and learn to understand their feelings. In being able to better understand ourselves, we can better recognize not only what prevents us, but also, what allows us to have a more fulfilling life. There is no better feeling as a therapist than seeing your clients realize and embrace their inner strengths, humbling resilience, and acquire the tools to manage their struggles in healthier and more productive ways.

Art Therapist, MS, MA, ATR-BC, LCAT
In an art therapy session, your child is offered non-threatening ways to communicate what is on their mind, indirectly or without words.
There are many stress factors in the lives of kids that can cause them to become sad, anxious, angry or confused such as illness, loss of a loved one, the separation or divorce of parents, or adjustment to a new environment. It is often difficult for these children to put their feelings and concerns into words. Art psychotherapy is a unique way of helping children find solutions to their emotional distress. Children love to make art - to tell stories, to play imaginatively, and to express feelings. Art psychotherapy uses children 's natural delight in the creative process to gain a better understanding of their inner world.

Treating children , adolescents, and parents has always been of special interest to me.
Having been in private practice for approximately 25 years, as well as having worked in hospital, clinic, and school settings, I 've found people are unique individuals typically involved in a variety of systems including family, friends, school, or work. As a result, I've found it important to focus on individual makeup (nature vs. nurture) and environmental influences. Creating a respectful, warm, engaging atmosphere helps facilitate the therapuetic process. Research has shown that the therapuetic relationship between client and psychologist has proved most valuable in creating healthy and productve changes and an improved quality of life.

I counsel from a strengths-based compassionate view point. All ages are of interest to me as I believe in relationships and how clients are able to operate within the relationships they find themselves. With 29 yrs of work in education, students and young adults are of particular interest. I have worked as an in-school clinician in a K-8 school with children who have emotional, behavioral and interpersonal issues. As a former spiritual hospice counselor, I have gained extensive background in grief and loss therapy and end-of-life issues that are often manifested through family dynamics.

What type of Teaneck 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Teaneck?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
