Women , men, and couples are my specialty.
TELEHEALTH SESSIONS ONLY... Feeling stuck, confused, and burden by life's challenges can affect your relationship with your children, your spouse/partner, co-workers, and those who come in contact with you. The right therapist can help you get "un-stuck" and lighten your burden. I am all about total transformation. I help each individual and couple restore hope and achieve their relationship goals. Working with me may NOT be blissful as I am a firm believer in addressing the pain and discomfort weighing us down. However, if you do the work required, you will experience emotional, mental, and spiritual growth.

Lately, you don’t feel like yourself. You are overwhelmed, anxious and pulled in too many directions. On the outside, it might look like you have it together. Inside, you feel like you are drowning or running on empty. You can’t keep going this way─the demands keep piling on and it feels like things are getting harder. If your postpartum experience or your adjustment to parenthood has been tough, or you realize you're burnt out to a crisp from work stress or the demands of your life, I can help. I help women and parents of all ages and stages find clarity, calm and balance.

I have a strong passion for helping women to work through the many facets of motherhood.
I'm an authentic, warm, open human being with a deep commitment to helping people to identify and work through the aspects of life that are causing the most pain. Therapy sessions with me are collaborative, insight oriented and strengths-based, weaving in mindfulness as well as heartfelt doses of honesty. My role is to guide you: to ask about who you are, what you desire (or don't desire) and why that is, so that together, we can identify where you'd like to focus your energies and your growth.

I have a special interest in working w/ young women , LGBTQIA+, and people of all ages experiencing chronic illness, pain, and/or co-occurring physical disability(ies).
Psychotherapy should be individualized, supportive, adaptive, and promote increased feelings of wellbeing, a heightened sense of competence or mastery, enhanced coping skills, stress reduction, and improved interpersonal relationships. Everyone is different, and our first sessions will focus on an exploration of your unique needs, strengths, preferences and abilities. Psychotherapy can be brief and solution-focused, but is often a lengthier relationship in which we examine lifelong themes and patterns. Please note, I typically work with individuals who can make a regular, weekly commitment to attend therapy.

You’re a professional woman over 40 who is enterprising and introspective. Despite your achievements both personally and professionally, you still have nagging feelings of being "not good enough" that gnaw at you with every accomplishment or hurdle. This may show up in your life as perfectionism, overachieving, a deprivation or scarcity mindset, procrastination, anxiety, or multitasking to oblivion. You long to get to the root of these feelings and change that faulty narrative. You’re through with feeling “not good enough” and you're ready to find the right therapist to go on the journey with you to rewrite this narrative.

What type of West Orange 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 West Orange?
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.
