My private practice involves a focus on anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and physical illness in ages 16 to geriatric.
Life has many stages and painful times that we live through that include relationship difficulties, family problems, aging, illnesses and bereavement. I provide non judgmental guidance without an agenda focusing on the patient's needs. I help them work toward what they want to achieve or change and together create concrete short and long term goals, integrating them into daily living. There is no pressure, only understanding and support for them to achieve what their focus is for the present and future.

My treatment orientation is both cognitive and psycho-dynamic psychotherapy. Modalities include Relaxation Techniques, Hypnosis, and De-sensitization for Phobic and other stress related illnesses. I am a very interactive therapist who has been responsive to the Managed Care directives that often limit the number of psychotherapy sessions. The oftentimes short term treatment requirements has required the need for techniques that are more time limited and outcome focused.

The need to prioritize ourselves and our mental health has never been more important. As someone who has battled with generalized anxiety, OCD, and panic disorder since childhood, I have intimate knowledge of the turmoil and suffering associated with mental health issues and how it can affect every aspect of our life. I’m also aware that our mental health is a journey of growth, which involves a daily commitment to show up for ourselves and do the work in order to craft a healthier mindset. The awareness we might want to speak to someone is the first step in making a change in our lives in order to better ourselves and our health.

I work with clients who come to therapy with a variety of issues. I then try to break down the situation into more manageable parts to set up goals that the client can work towards achieving. Sometimes a client needs support and validation as well so I try to find the right balance of both worlds and get the client to work towards a more positive direction in their life

Bipolar Disorder Therapists

What is the most successful approach to treating bipolar disorder?

Living with bipolar disorder can be challenging, and a number of therapies have been found effective in providing support to patients as they gain the skills to understand and manage the disorder. Family-focused therapy is often helpful for children and teens (the majority of cases develop before age 19); it aims to minimize mood cycling by improving family communication and reducing conflict. It also helps young people navigate the developmental challenges the disorder can create. Cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) and variants such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) help patients manage the thoughts and feelings that influence bipolar mood swings as well as develop specific behavioral strategies to counteract them.

What happens in therapy for bipolar disorder?

Because the patterns of mood switching and its triggers differ for each person and can change over time, mood tracking or monitoring becomes a basic way patients learn about the nature of their condition. One of the most common features of therapy is finding a workable method of mood monitoring, in which patients track their daily activities and rate their moods, then use the findings to adjust routines accordingly. Patients learn ways of handling the many stresses that arise in life so that they do not trigger mood swings.

What kinds of problems does therapy help with?

Like many other mental health disorders, BPD is heavily influenced by stress; therapy provides skills for coping with stressors of all kinds. Therapy is extremely important for helping individuals identify the situations that may trigger mood switching, so that mood swings can be prevented. Therapy may especially target recognition of the early stages of mood change so that they can be managed. In addition, therapy helps patients deal with the significant amount of turbulence the disorder can create in relationships and in work life.

What is the goal of therapy for bipolar disorder?

Therapy helps patients set up their lives to maintain stability so that their mood isn’t constantly threatened by daily events. Perhaps the first task of therapy is to educate people about the nature of the disorder. At the same time, a primary goal of therapy is to enhance adherence to drug treatment. Extended periods of mood stability can prompt patients to discontinue medication, triggering relapse, while the early phases of manic episodes can feel so energizing that patients stop medication, ushering in full-blown mania and the altered self-perception that can lead to destructive behaviors. Another major goal of therapy is to understand one’s mood patterns so as to minimize both the frequency and intensity of mood cycling.
