I am here to support you in cultivating your strengths and help you increase your toolbox of skills to build your sense of mastery and ability to cope more effectively with the challenges in your life. I am an intensively trained DBT therapist with expertise working with adolescent and adult women.

I have 15 years experience working with children ages 4 and up, adolescents and adults. My early interest in child and adolescent work came from a commitment to recognizing these little humans as people with their own thoughts and feelings and in acknowledging how much they can challenge their loving parents. Thankfully there is a lot of wonderful literature and resources for parents, but meeting with a professional that takes the time to understand the specifics of your family and your needs is still an invaluable experience. I hope you will consider me for this.

I have authored three editions of the groundbreaking book " Invisible Girls Speaking The Truth About Sexual Abuse: for teen girls and everyone who cares about them".
I have been working as a psychotherapist for over thirty years. Most of my practice is filled with wonderful young women ages 15-40 dealing with issues of life changes, work, relationships, and family. I have a very glass overflowing approach. My passion project is helping incest and all sex abuse survivors heal from abuse. I believe survivors can lead beautiful lives and thrive. I love to see growth and happiness after any abuse, as I know all survivors are righteous and can lead beautiful lives. I focus my work with women, anyone who identifies as a woman. My therapy doggie provides the warmth and comfort that my clients love.

I’m here to make space for you or your adolescent child to mourn the life we knew before March of 2020.
Being a young person today is much harder than the world makes it out to be. Managing the transition from adolescence to young adulthood can be quite jarring, particularly during a time where social connection is limited, fear and anxiety are at an all-time high, and coping skills are limited to whatever we can pursue within the constraints of our homes.

I am a child and adolescent therapist who works with young people and their families in a developmentally sensitive manner. Through careful listening and collaborative parent work, we create the possibility for change. Younger children use play as their most authentic means of communication. Talking directly about worries can be overwhelming. Play becomes a rich way for me to communicate with your child. Older children often communicate directly about their concerns, but will play while we talk. Play gives them a feeling of control and familiarity when addressing difficult issues.

My areas of specialized training and interests include trauma, addictions, gender identity, Sexual orientation, sexuality, parenting, ethnic and racial identity concerns, social justice work, immigration, women's health, and adolescent development.
Starting therapy is a leap of faith at a time when hope is scarce. It is an act of courage. I prioritize symptom relief and stabilization, but I believe that lasting change and growth stem from a deeper understanding of our histories, relationships, internal worlds, and motivations. I work best with people who are willing to take a risk and become curious about their own complexity. I believe social and political environments, genetic predispositions, and intergenerational histories all interact to manifest our challenges and gifts. Ideally, my clients would be open to uncovering the many unconscious forces at play in their lives.

My areas of focus include self harming behaviors, low self esteem, depression, anxiety and panic attacks, substance use, and teen dating violence.
Seeing your child angry, depressed, anxious, and engaging in self destructive behaviors like cutting or using substances is overwhelming, confusing and frightening. Maybe something recently happened that explains these changes, or maybe it feels like this has come out of nowhere. Either way, you have come to the right place, and I am here to help.  I have devoted my practice to supporting teens and their families through one of the most tumultuous times of their life.

As a parent of a struggling child or teen , do you often find yourself wondering what you can do to help them feel better? Do they wrestle with daily stressors (school and homework pressure, family/peer issues, self-image, COVID-19 fears) and emotional issues ? Parents often feel that they have run out of ideas of how to help. They just want their child to thrive. I have helped children and teens that were struggling with anxiety disorders, self-regulation, low self-esteem, body image concerns, and anger issues. I work with parents to help them develop strategies to help their children as their needs change over the years.

I specialize in working with adolescent clients (gay, lesbian, straight, questioning and transgender), which includes providing support and guidance to their parents.
Psychotherapy offers us the opportunity to have the support we need to examine those areas of our lives we find painful, confusing, and/or challenging. It is common for all of us from time to time to feel "stuck" in our lives, or faced with problems that we cannot seem to overcome. My goal is to help my clients access their internal and interpersonal resources in ways that are healing and help them gain a greater sense of personal agency in their lives. We may achieve this by exploring the past, looking at the present, or a combination of both.

I provide talk therapy and specialize in women’s issues, loss and grief, anxiety, depression and trauma, family work, and adolescent development.
I have always been the person people come to talk to and my practice is a natural extension of myself. I strive to develop a trusting and comfortable clinical relationship with all my clients, where they process their various challenges, life changes, pains, uncertainties, and family dynamics. Thirty years of practice have taught me how incredibly resilient the most struggling individual can be given the genuine support of others and even without it. Building from my clients’ resilience and our clinical relationship, treatment evolves and mental health is found, strengthened, or regained.

Kids are under enormous pressure at home, in school and with peers. These pressures can present themselves in many ways -- as childhood anxiety, adolescent depression, or school behavioral problems. My focus is on making your child feel heard, while providing them with a tool belt of coping mechanisms that can be accessed whenever they are feeling overwhelmed. Your child will build self-esteem along with practical emotional awareness and regulation skills that can be incorporated into their daily lives.

My primary focus is in the adolescent and adult treatment of trauma symptoms stemming from adverse childhood experiences.
We have an inbuilt propensity towards self-actualization and the job of the therapist is to help identify and remove obstacles, with the rest following from the innate tendency to grow. I use humanist and cognitive-behavioral frameworks to help individuals take action to reduce stress and pain in their lives. DBT and CBT approaches to treatment can help people develop mindfulness and interpersonal skills that support the ability to focus, manage stress, regulate emotions, and identify underlying beliefs that perpetuate problematic patterns of thinking and behaving.

I worked for many years in child and adolescent mental health clinics and then in a school for behaviorally challenged children.
Have you felt like you are missing your partner, or have lost the ability to talk to each other? Do you long to feel more connected? If you cannot understand why so many of your interactions with your partner or children end up in arguments then I might be able to help. I work with families who are experiencing this kind of distance and escalations. My clients state that after our work together: they communicate better, feel more connected and 'in sync" with each other and are better able to meet each other's needs. I have heard comments such as, "I feel like I am falling in love again" and "thank you, I got my child back".

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Brooklyn and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
