I get excited about helping people make progress with whatever they need to work with. I’ve lived in and around NYC my whole life-through 9/11 and now through this pandemic. If there’s one thing all of it has taught me, it’s how important is to cherish each moment and spend time with family & friends and to appreciate the people we have around us. My experiences along life’s journey have led me to this motto that guides my practice: Supporting Your Courage To Live Your Truth.

I am a body-centered psychotherapist, passionate about helping you reconnect with your inner wisdom and joy. In my role as a loving and supportive guide, I will help you listen deeply to the parts of yourself keeping you from your true path. And since no two healing paths are alike, I have several areas of expertise, including Rubenfeld Synergy Method, an elegant modality combining touch and talk; EMDR, an effective way to heal trauma; Internal Family Systems therapy, a powerful system designed to help resolve inner conflicts; Jungian dream work; Mindfulness meditation; and Food and Body Image groups.

My post-graduate training in Family Systems and Cognitive Behavior Therapy inform my work.
How you get through a difficult time does matter. Insight oriented work is an incredibly powerful and meaningful process whereby you explore who you are, what you want, and how to get there. My clients are typically smart, kind, and goal-oriented. I have found that they may be struggling with anxiety, depression, or rocky relationships but they strive for peace, inner strength, loving relationships and a sense of purpose.

I believe that life is all about experience and relationships that affect different individuals in different ways, and for different reasons. For that reason, I have an integrated and eclectic approach using relational, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, supportive and family psychotherapy treatment modalities to treat Eating Disorders, Anxiety, Depression, OCD and Personality Disorders including self injurious behaviors. Treatment is individualized to the needs of each client and collaboration can be coordinated with a nutritionist, psychiatrist and physician when appropriate. I have a group therapy program for adolescents, young adults and women struggling with eating disorders, body image and self -esteem issues.

My work with children is a collaborative process with the family system.
The healing process is vulnerable and courageous. Whether you seek healing for yourself or your child, a safe holding space that provides supportive containment and compassion is so vital. I embrace each individual with the knowledge that one is the expert of their own lives. My role is to provide a space to access deeper wisdom and personal expression. I began my career in early childhood education and have brought my knowledge of early childhood development into my work as a therapist, with a focus on attachment, sensory processing and the nervous system constantly informing my work.

You are not your story! If you feel alone, unseen or invisible, asking "what's the matter with me?"or "why aren't I enough?" I want to create an emotionally safe space for you to be seen and heard, to help you safely process whatever events, feelings, or family of origin issues have led up to where you find yourself today.

I bring over 20 years of private practice experience working with adults, children adolescents, and families. I am a Certified IFS (Internal Family Systems) therapist. This cutting edge therapy emphasizes Compassion and Courage to heal. Emphasis is on healing! Anxiety, Depression, Panic, Eating Disorders, etc are all a result of not getting what we need to grow and thrive. These are all "Protectors" of deeper "Exiled" parts, experiences. Using everything from play therapy (mostly for children), art, clay, talking, etc to externalize the healing. IFS is the future of Psychotherapy. Curious? Call, E mail.... :)

I hold a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy , an MFA in Creative Writing, certifications in Transformational Life Coaching and Clinical Hypnotherapy.
As a holistic therapist and shamanic practitioner, I work with people in midlife who worry they are slipping into irrelevance as they age. I help them begin (or continue) deep inner work so they can step into mentorship of younger people in their communities. Being your best self is an admirable goal. But that's not enough! Your unique presence is needed in the world to help younger people see that a real, messy, beautiful, productive life is possible. Be of service by being your self.

Our world is full of expectations—should and should nots, and prescribed definitions to make us fit existing molds. When our experience doesn’t match this template, we may feel depressed, anxious, or fragmented. My training is informed by Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and Trauma Informed Care. With sensitivity to the intersections of race, ethnicity, orientation, gender, social class, and ability, I utilize a systemic lens to affirm, heal, and collaborate with you to find greater personal happiness and relationship satisfaction.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
