Sometimes all that stands in the way of your happiness and peace of mind is the way you think about things. It's remarkable how our own thoughts can work against us creating anxiety, depression and an overall feeling of being trapped or stuck. The happiness that you truly want and deserve is actually within your control! Whether it's getting rid of your fears, understanding why you feel sad, finally having that healthy relationship you have been yearning for, reducing stress, finding balance, or finally being able to answer the question "what will make me happy?".

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is an integral part to the healing journey. I work hard at creating trust and safety with those that I work with by providing an honest, authentic, and nonjudgmental presence. It is my goal to accept whatever a person may bring to therapy while also seeing the possibility of change. I work with adults to help them navigate challenges along their journey to parenthood.  I help them cope with the emotional and mental load of trying to conceive; manage feelings of grief, loss, anxiety, and depression; to heal from trauma; adjust to motherhood; and so much more.

As a therapist who believes there is not just "one way" to do treatment, I use an integrative approach to helping my patients. I am a practitioner with a unique perspective having a background ranging from business to mental health. Counseling and psychotherapy are 'teamwork' approaches to problem solving that should be as unique as the person seeking help.

I encourage my clients to become active participants in their own lives and to create opportunities for themselves that lead to life enhancing change. Therapy is a challenging but rewarding process and we can work together toward positive outcomes.

What type of Melville 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Melville?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
