Over the last 25 years I have been granted the opportunity to work with amazing individuals, couples and families who were searching for well-being. As we attempt to balance our personal and professional lives it is so very important to have a supportive and nurturing guide. I specialize in working with those living with anxiety (generalized, social, sports performance), depression, substance use disorders, traumatic brain injury, grief, loss and end of life evolution. Those I have worked with say I am caring, compassionate, open-minded and that I am able to create an inclusive and safe environment for growth and reflection.

I have experience with couples and marital counseling, substance use , parenting and adolescent dynamics, intergenerational mapping and trauma work.
Our minds and bodies are powerful forces, which are wholly connected. Environmental factors, as well as belief and value systems are deeply rooted in how we present ourselves physically and emotionally. For many, painful life events can fracture the mind/body connection for the sake of survival. Adults may experience anxious and depressive thoughts. Relationships may see increased tension and/or codependent traits. Healing from therapeutic intervention is recognizing unhelpful “parts” and bringing love, appreciation and competency to your internal world.

Therapy is about exploring where you are and where you want to go. It's about envisioning the life you want and understanding what's holding you back. Sometimes we get so caught up in our stories, we forget that we can change. Yet we are so resilient! I love helping people befriend themselves and celebrate all of who they are. Together we can face your most trying moments with grace and integrity. We can identify obstacles, and explore practical solutions. I value giving you the support and perspective you need to feel grounded and whole.

To seek counsel and to make the conscious decision to ask for help is an act of courage. It is never easy to be vulnerable to another, let alone, allow someone into your world. Forman once said, “It is an act of bravery to feel your feelings.” I hold this statement to be true. As your therapist, it is my hope to be able to develop a therapeutic alliance with you to walk the journey of exploring and overcoming whatever challenges and obstacles you may be facing. By implementing several different types of clinical modalities including CBT, DBT, and Psychodynamic therapies, it is my goal to be able to meet you where you’re at

If you're on this website reading therapists' profiles, you or someone you care about are probably wrestling with unpleasant feelings or difficult life circumstances. I can help you figure out what is working in your life, what is not working, what can change, and how to make change. I listen carefully and ask thoughtful questions to explore where you've been, where you are now, and where you need to go next, working through the tough stuff along the way in a spirit of respect and caring.

I have worked as a clinical psychologist since 2004. Originally from the NYC metropolitan area, I have lived in upstate NY for many years. My approach to psychotherapy is tailored to both presenting problems and clients’ interest in exploring questions. Sometimes, short-term and goal-directed psychotherapy is the best path, while at other times, a longer self-exploration is more helpful for self-seeing. I will meet you at your starting point and try to help you gain clarity and understanding into your questions, with the goal of helping you overcome the obstacles that keep you stuck in a situation or mindset.

Let me tell you a secret, therapy is not a one size fits all type of thing! I wish it were as it would make life so much easier, but the fact is every person is different and requires sessions catered to their own unique backgrounds, environments, and goals. As a psychotherapist, my aim is to work with you on getting to wherever you want to be in life, so I invite you to reach out if you are interested in taking a bumpy ride through the road of self-discovery.

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.
