I teach people how to talk about the emotions that are negatively impacting their lives. I assist in helping my clients to process the moments in life that hold them back and affect their families and loved ones. I mostly use talk therapy in order to help my client to place some order to their thoughts and allow them to move on from critical moments in life.
Thank you for checking out my profile, choosing a therapist is a big decision, as is taking the first step to make that call. I am accepting new clients, in person or remote based on your preference and comfortability. Therapy is a journey we take together, working from a strength based practice to foster emotional growth and well being. We work together to identify and prioritize issues that are negatively impacting your well being & happiness. Through ongoing counseling we address issues, identify and encourage more effective alternatives. Be well.
My practice is currently at capacity. If space opens up I will change my status on PT as soon as I can. In addition to CBT, DBT, EMDR, and exploratory and supportive therapy I am now offering RTM (Reconsolidation of Traumatic Memories) and am currently working on certification for this very effective new modality.
I am not accepting any new clients at this time. In my therapy practice I provide a comfortable, safe and confidential space for my clients to get support, learn, heal and grow. It is my experience that the best environment for emotional healing and individual growth is an environment where the individual feels a high level of trust and support. My goal is to provide that environment to each and every unique person who I see in my practice. I am experienced in treating panic, anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, mood disorders, ADHD, self-esteem issues, LBGTQ related concerns, as well as family/relationship issues.
**I am currently full but I do have a waitlist if interested*** I am having a hard time responding to phone inquires in a timely manner and prefer emails. I find I can respond more quickly to email. Are you struggling with issues related to depression, anxiety, trauma or major life changes? I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and I’m here to support you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.
I am currently accepting new clients. I have been helping adolescents and adults work through life issues, navigate barriers, and achieve health and happiness for over 15 years.

I provide to you an open-minded, nonjudgemental, nurturing environment where you can feel safe to speak freely and explore these challenges and discover your strengths.
I am a New York State Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 40 years of experience. I use an eclectic approach in my work. I draw from traditional therapeutic techniques and advanced training in Bowen Family Systems Therapy, EMDR, DBT, Mindfulness and Energy Work. I strive to create a safe, confidential settling for each individual. I help to develop good interpersonal skills, self care and increased self awareness. A primary focus in therapy is often how to address relationship conflicts/issues in a healthy productive way. Whenever possible it is important to maintain healthy connection with our families and others.
My practice and waitlist are currently full and I am unable to accept new clients. Do you find yourself excelling in certain areas of life only to sit down at the end of the day feeling unfulfilled, drained, on edge, or disconnected; like nothing is good enough no matter how hard you try or that you are losing control? Many people I work with are burned out and frustrated wondering why they can't "just get it together, move on, get this under control, relax, or shut off the thoughts." Worry, sadness, and that knot in the pit of your stomach don't have to keep being part of your everyday life.

I see my role as helping you discover your strengths, change limiting thoughts, find solutions, feel better, and live more effectively in all areas of your life.
Unmanaged stress can negatively effect how we cope with the challenges we face in life. Anxiety and depression are just a couple of the most common effects of stress whether that stress is experienced in the present or past. Stress can also interfere with our ability to function in relationships by inhibiting our ability to process emotions. By working with a counselor you are taking the first important step in overcoming your challenges. Your journey in addressing these challenges is important to me and I look forward to working together with you in achieving improved emotional health and functioning.

I provide a safe and nurturing environment where clients are free to express their thoughts and feelings, and I work to help them make sense of it all. My goal is to meet clients where they are, and give them the tools to get to where they want to be emotionally and psychologically.
