In times of anxiety and fear, we rely on the closeness of family, friends and our community. In the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, however, we find ourselves in the uncharted territories of being quarantined or sheltered at home, separated from our familiar support groups and activities. With over 20 years experience as first a psychotherapist and now a life coach, I help people adapt and thrive in response to transitions and challenges.
Serving Bergen/Rockland Counties and Manhattan, I bring 30 years as a psychotherapist, 25 years as a family and couples therapist, and 20 years of practicing behavioral and physical rehabilitation medicine and years of contemplative and body art practices (YTT200) to a psychology practice that incorporates evidenced-based treatments with contemporary psychoanalytic practices and body/mind perspectives. Therapy works with mind, body, and between ourselves and others in a relationship that frees the creative potential for healing, discovering new inspiration for transforming self, work and relationships.

Navigating life's ups and downs can be challenging for anyone. People deal with many stresses, difficult relationships, career and financial difficulties, as well as difficult emotions including anxiety, sadness, shame, negativity and anger, just to name a few. Seeking therapy as a way to help address life's difficulties is a sign of strength. I respect that strength in my clients and feel privileged to work with them in navigating the challenges that bring them to therapy at this time. I look forward to speaking to you and learning how I can be helpful to you in your journey. I recently opened a second office in Monsey, NY.
For over a decade, I have been treating adolescents and young adults struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, adjustment issues and relationship difficulties. I take an individualized approach, guiding each client to discover and utilize her strengths and internal resources in the healing process. I assist my clients in identifying and overcoming their own barriers to being happier and calmer. I also use a skills-based approach to provide my clients with new resources to help them more effectively navigate daily life and relationships.
