Parent training is provided. I help individuals who suffer from anxiety/depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and school issues. Other life concerns are addressed.

I am a caring and compassionate therapist who is committed to helping people make needed changes in their lives. Sometimes change is not possible and we need the tools to adapt to those situations that are beyond our control. I have supported many clients in the therapeutic relationship to learn about themselves and to focus and build on the strengths that each person has. I have extensive experience with adolescents and children and i have always worked very closely with parents so that we can all work towards the same goals.
My philosophy is to approach each person as unique with personal strengths. In a supportive atmosphere I will help you explore ingrained and disruptive patterns, to enhance personal growth, improve self esteem, mood and personal relationships. I see therapy as a partnership that allows for a respectful give and take relationship. The ultimate goal is for you to reach your highest level of happiness and satisfaction in your life. During this very difficult time I am offering varied ways of doing therapy including unlmtd. text, video and audio messaging and weekly sessions with billing packages to address financial effects of Covid.
Has your anxiety been rearing its head? Anxiety/worry were put in overdrive due to this pandemic. There is so much uncertainty and feelings of being uncomfortable in situations we never had a problem with before. Our ways of coping were either taken away or we had to adapt. There have been many transitions and unknowns that we still are coping with. I am here to tell you that Anxiety/Worry is predictable and only wants 2 things: Certainty and to be Comfortable. Anxiety cannot be taken away BUT you can with work through the anxiety. Take back the power and learn to be confident that you can deal with whatever comes your way.
Are you ready to feel better? I work with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, loss, life stressors, life changes (divorce, career change etc.), marriage and family counseling. I enjoy helping my clients (of all ages) learn "tools" to help them succeed in their lives. I will help you to identify, evaluate and change behaviors that get in your way of life successes. You will have my undivided and confidential attention. We will work together to improve your life and success. My ideal client wants to change and just needs some help/advice/guidance to do it.
I work with children, adolescents and adults offering psychotherapy and counseling services for anxiety, depression, loss, relationship difficulties, and family dysfunction for individuals, families, couples and groups. Because I believe in the mind-body connection I also work with people to achieve healthy weight loss and optimal health offering free health coaching towards learning transformational habits of health.
Picture yourself standing in an empty room, all of your insecurities, fears, loneliness and sadness are present. Imagine you could strip away all of these things and everything that has ever held you back from feeling alive and present. As barriers are removed, your true self can emerge. Give yourself permission to be seen just as you are today. " Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen."
Are you having trouble in a relationship, feeling overwhelmed, overcome, anxious or depressed? Are you experiencing difficulties with a child, spouse/significant other or parent? For over 30 years I have helped individuals, couples and families become healthier. I have extensive experience helping clients deal with anxiety, depression, conflict, intimacy, communication, and personal growth. I have the training, insight and experience needed to work with my clients to define problem areas and make the changes needed to live happier lives.
While earning my doctorate in child and school psychology at New York University, I had the opportunity to work in hospitals, schools and private practice providing psychotherapy and administering evaluations to children, adolescents and adults. While I enjoy working with individuals of all ages, I have a passion for working with adolescents/teenagers and young adults and guiding them to raise self-awareness, encourage self-esteem and self-love and ultimately make positive changes to become happier individuals.
I believe that certain patterns of behavior that impede personal growth are deeply rooted in our early experiences and relationships. They are largely outside of our awareness. Insight into how these experiences shape our perceptions, views and behaviors are illuminated through our work together within the therapeutic relationship. With clarity and a greater understanding of one's repetitive patterns, lasting change can be achieved as well as a sense of personal empowerment.
Are you feeling sad, anxious, lonely or stressed out? Are you having relationship problems? Do you think that your partner is not responsive to your needs? Are you tired of feeling this way? It seems that the time has come to try something new and seek professional help. You have probably tried working these problems out by yourself, hoping things will change. Maybe you have spoken with friends and family, but you still feel stuck.
Through a supportive and empowering approach, I can help you understand yourself better, clarify your goals and directions, and lead a more fulfilling life. Together, we'll select the tools that can help you overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of achieving what you want, whether it's freeing yourself from debilitating anxiety, finding energy and joy in life, having more satisfying interpersonal relationships, or finding focus and clarity about who you are and what you want for yourself. For children, I'll also help with behavioral issues, ADHD, fears and phobias, and anxiety.
I am known for Caring and Professional PERSONAL, MARRIAGE & RELATIONSHIP Counseling. Life is all about relationships. We shape them, and they shape us - they touch us to our very core! But finding a well-qualified relationship therapist when your relationship is suffering can be very difficult! Many therapists lack the specialized training, experience, or license to work with couples and families. As a result, couples often experience marriage therapy as lukewarm in supporting the goal of life-long commitment. I am licensed as a Marriage & Family Therapist, as well as Clinical Social Worker at the highest level of experience.
