I am particularly energized by using Internal Family Systems (IFS), a transformative model of psychotherapy that uses techniques to harmonize the inner system, which IFS theorizes is comprised of sub-parts or personalities that serve various adaptive functions.

My approach stems from Mindfulness & Internal Family Systems theories, incorporating new ways to be in the world.
Are you struggling with feelings of loneliness despite having lots of friends and people in your life? Do you feel like you are unable to be yourself with the people you most care about? Do you want to feel healthier and happier? I want to help you to find more joy and ease in your life by focusing on the most important relationship we have, which is with ourselves. Learning how to become more connected to oneself is not easy, but it's a huge start. I want to work with you to build self compassion, a key to healing.

Feeling stuck, unfulfilled, and overwhelmed can be very debilitating, isolating and feel permanent. These challenges can come up in relationships (love, family ) and in your profession. You may have tried just about everything you can think of to address your concerns but still don't know how to move forward and resolve things. I can help you find relief. I have a calm, gentle presence that is perceived by many to be nurturing and inviting.

Prioritizing mental and emotional health may sometimes feel hard to do when there is so much going on.

Are you a 20-or-30-something? Are you experiencing huge changes in your life right now, with work, dating, relationships, family , and friends? Perhaps you're new to New York, newly single, newly coupled, or a new parent. No matter what you're facing, you know that as a young adult, this time of life can be one of the most difficult periods we face, as we confront new challenges and responsibilities, answer huge questions about who we are, form new relationships, and make big decisions about our futures, often with little guidance or support.

Therapy is an integral part of self-care and overall health. My goal is to help clients uncover their strengths and passion to live more fulfilling lives. Communicating (with self or others) is a common area of focus, particularly relating to transitions across the lifespan (such as adolescence, young adulthood, middle age, etc.) as well as facilitating meaningful communication both for the individual and the relationship (for example, couples, family members, friends, and coworkers).

The complexities of human nature is something that many of us grapple with. Therapy, although seemingly scary, intimidating and overwhelming at first, can lead to change, growth and a high degree of satisfaction when an individual is willing to look at themselves in a new light. I believe in treatment that is collaborative which encompasses a conversational dynamic. I provide individual, family and couples sessions for various issues, some of which include; anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, communication problems, life transitions, issues with interpersonal relationships, work stress and other stress related issues.

I have specialized experience and training in addiction and trauma and welcome individuals, family members, and couples looking to work on these issues.
I'm drawn to Robert Frost's saying "the best way out is always through." It captures a sense of deep suffering and illustrates the type of healing that the process of therapy can bring. I’m a psychotherapist who supports individuals and couples in their process of healing from a variety of emotional, psychological, behavioral, self-esteem, and relationship challenges.

My diverse training and experience includes a variety of short and long-term treatment modalities such as trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), Functional Family Therapy (FFT), play therapy with children, psychodynamic and humanistic techniques.
My clients are children, adolescents, adults and parents experiencing life stressors, struggling with relationships, striving for personal growth or seeking change. My work commonly addresses symptoms such as anxiety, depression or general difficulty functioning in one or more areas. I use an eclectic and collaborative style to best serve each client. My highly individualized and integrative approach draws from a variety of techniques depending on specific therapeutic goals and needs. When working with children and adolescents, I find it is important and most effective if I collaborate closely with their parents to support the family system and promote optimal outcomes.

Change can be intimidating. We develop methods of coping that, at one time, perhaps helped to survive, but now prevent us from ultimately thriving. This can manifest in our relationship patterns and our mood, causing disruption in work, love, family , friendships and a healthy identity. My approach to therapy is rooted in helping clients develop a deeper understanding of these patterns and effecting change and empowerment through insight, support, and challenging maladaptive beliefs.

Other areas of special interest include family systems work and the trauma of neglect.
Each client is unique. Crisis, transition, relationship, workplace problems, coming out, depression, anxiety, identity, parenting . . . the list goes on. Nonetheless, the three phrases I'm most accustomed to hearing first are: "I'm completely stuck." "I don't understand why I feel this way." and "I just don't see a way out of this." It is important that we begin exactly where you are. Some of the issues you're bringing to therapy may first need practical attention in order to alleviate your current distress. Subsequently, we'll look for connections to the source of your issues and begin the healing process.

That has gone through a life change such as divorce/separation, empty nest, death of a family member, change in job or loss of a job, a recent move, family stress ext.
It can be challenging to go through the stages of therapy, but the goal is that you leave the session exhaling with a smile that you took a step towards supporting yourself, that you made yourself a priority, and are on your way to tackling life’s stressors. We can work together to face the struggles that brought you to therapy and find solutions that help you feel inspired and empowered. I have spent much time doing crisis intervention and trauma therapy work. I am also passionate about working with grief/bereavement clients and have recently developed an interest in working with self-esteem building in client sessions.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
