As a psychologist for 42 years, 21 years as a school-psychologist, 22 years in private practice, I am frequently asked about my areas of specialty or my modes of treatment. I explain that what WE do (therapy is a joint effort) has everything to do with the person sitting in front of me. Everyone brings his or her own problems, histories, relationships, personalities, situations, and resources into therapy and it is not a one size fits all paradigm. And as similar as we humans are, we are each of us, unique.
Over 17 years in private practice, I offer my clients a combination of deep listening and practical problem-solving. I approach my clients in a respectful yet warm way, and genuinely feel priveledged to be able to support my clients through their therapeutic process. I work with clients on mood issues, anxietiy and unhelpful relationship patterns, and thereby help clients feel happier and more fulfilled. My past experience with psychoducational testing has particularly sensitized me to the ways in which our learning profiles shape and maintain our emotional functioning.

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who has experience working with people from many diverse backgrounds and all age groups.

Taking the first step and seeking help is oftentimes the most difficult decision one must make. Finding the right therapist for you or your family isn't easy. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, and that the therapist plays an active role in the treatment. Therefore, finding the right match -someone with whom you have a sense of rapport- is critical. My view of a patient is beyond a set of symptoms. Each client is a unique person who brings his or her particular experiences, strengths, and vulnerabilities.

All relationships rupture...but not all relationships repair. A couple's ability to safely and effectively repair their ruptures, and heal their pain, is an essential ingredient to any healthy long-term connection. In my office, I meet a great variety of people and relationship types; some are merely dating, while others are already engaged, or have begun the marital journey... and yet others are anywhere from 10-50 years into their marriage. What unites them all is the great human need and desire to feel understood, seen, safe, loved, and held.

So, if you find yourself scared, frustrated, defeated or overwhelmed, allow me to accompany you on this journey. Together, we can figure out how to deal with all that troubles you-successfully.

I have been in private practice for more than 20 years. I work in Northern New Jersey and provide short-term psychotherapy using psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and sensorimotor psychotherapy. I feel using an integrated model produces the best results. Every client is different so it's necessary to use multiple modalities --a one size fits all model does not work in therapy. I like working in partnership with clients. I am approachable, warm, nurturing and active in my sessions. I believe it's essential to be available to clients and return phone calls and emails on a timely basis
As a psychologist licensed in NY and NJ, I have maintained an independent psychotherapy practice for more than 35 years. Therapy with me allows each individual to feel fully recognized and accepted. The most common reasons that people come to me are for help with depression and anxiety. We often discover the self-defeating ways--avoidance, aggressiveness, addiction--you use to cope with the stresses of everyday life. We usually find that the problems are present in the most intimate relationships, and may be threatening work relationships as well. We will bring a healing connection and compassion to the obstacles to a fuller life.
In the over twenty years that I have been in the clinical practice of psychotherapy, I remain amazed by the tenacity and resilience of the human spirit. I respect the human capacity to survive and adapt to challenges - big and small, acute and chronic - but also the ability to make change given the right circumstances. It has been an honor to witness and be part of many individuals’ journeys to a better and more satisfying life using psychotherapy. Sometimes peoples’ ability to change has seemed miraculous. Through my training, many modalities have been embedded into my practice including cognitive-behavioral techniques.
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.
