Does your use of SOCIAL MEDIA feel like an ADDICTION? Do your moods vacillate wildly depending on your Twitter mentions or how many times somebody has swiped right on your profile? We fear the judgment of others, but we crave their approval and praise. These feelings can be overwhelming and make you feel like you are out of control. What if I told you that you didn’t need to suffer like this?

I believe the usefulness of therapy lies in the relationship the counselor and client create together. It is there that the client is able to safely explore the challenges of life. Within that relationship, personal strengths are cultivated, while weaknesses are identified and skills developed to inform how best to navigate through one's life fully. I have worked with students struggling under the pressures of academia; couples working to keep a relationship strong; couple's in the midst of separation/divorce; Individuals struggling with depression and anxiety.

I AM CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Seeing a therapist -- this is not an easy step you’re considering. Putting your most vulnerable thoughts and feelings in the hands of a stranger takes some courage and a bit of a leap of faith. Whether you’re feeling anxious or depressed, or are in a troubled marriage or relationship, or struggling with issues that have no label, you’re probably feeling stuck. Stuck is when people call a therapist. It’s after they have tried everything: waiting for things to get better, talking to friends or relatives, or reading self-help books.

Many of us look 'fine' on the outside, but inside it's more complicated than that. You may have feelings of uncertainty or insecurity, worry about some aspects of the future, or be dealing with fallout from the past. You may be struggling with challenging symptoms such as anxiousness, a sense of life dissatisfaction, or feeling 'low' much of the time. All of this is part of being a human in a complex time, and often this can be addressed by counseling. Talking and processing with another person can provide so much relief. I help by creating a safe space where you can feel free to, at your own pace, explore current challenges.

In psychotherapy, we work together to understand the meaning of your symptoms and the sources of your pain. The therapeutic process is in large part a careful encounter with the past in the hope of getting beyond what happened to you and discovering who you are apart from your history. It also includes the exploration of your beliefs, emotions, protective strategies, recurring patterns, and relationship dynamics. From a stance of compassion and curiosity, we put words to your experience and what has been unsayable before.

As a therapist who goes to therapy, I know, firsthand, the importance of finding the right fit. The right therapist is different for each of us and often has little to do with programs completed or certifications earned. Instead, it’s about presence—about feeling safe to show up exactly as we are while being empowered to do what is right and true for us.

Many of us benefit from having a safe space where we can regularly express ourselves with an empathic Counselor Therapist. The process of exploring our struggles, frustrations, as well as aspirations, with a non-judgmental professional Counselor Therapist, can produce growth. Previous work at Cornell University Health Center as well as my integrative approach, enable me to address a variety of needs and to assist with finding empowerment. Some of the qualities which I look for in prospective clients are: receptivity, motivation to learn and grow, self-awareness, and inquisitiveness. Prefererring in-person and Aetna insurance.

Feeling stuck or unfulfilled in different areas of your life? Would you like support that is professional and confidential? Unlike talking to friends and family, therapy offers a safe space where you can put words to things that are difficult to say, and confront things from your past that seem to interfere with your life in the present. Therapy can lead to deeper self-awareness and insight that can empower you to make the changes you need to live your best life. Everyone has the power to grow and heal with the right conditions and tools.

My first experience with therapy, was as the client. After surviving a traumatic event, I sought help from a therapist. Therapy proved so helpful, it was then, that my passion grew. While most of my experience has been in private practice providing individual therapy, I have worked in a county mental health clinic, an inpatient psychiatric setting and a residential group home. At the core of distress, we may find some form of unresolved shame, guilt, trauma, abuse or loss. I am here to provide "a safe place" to process those hurts, while helping you increase self-awareness and gain skills to lead a more fulfilling life.

I am a supportive and kink-affirming therapist and my goal is to help couples address concerns with their communication, create intimacy and connection, reignite chemistry and yes, provide sex education, because life should be pleasure-filled. I've helped countless clients become comfortable within their own skin: learning how to ask for what they want to get their needs met both in life and the bedroom too. I am an LCSW-R and I specialize in both couples counseling, behavioral intervention and sex therapy. There is nothing taboo or off limits when it comes to therapy: I want you to bring your WHOLE self when meeting with me.

What type of Ithaca 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Ithaca?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
