Finding the right therapist for yourself or your teen can be daunting.
Teens and young adults have a lot to juggle in their lives. I work with ages 11 & up and help clients find a balance in their lives where things just seem “click” again. By using CBT and mindfulness strategies I aim to help you or your child change old patterns and learn new skills focused on improving self-esteem, emotional intelligence, emotion regulation & coping skills, motivation, and goal-setting. Depending on the nature of a client’s mental health, my approach will be tailored to help bring quick relief with long lasting changes.

Connecting with the right therapist is so important. Finding someone who can help you find words to describe your experience, identify solutions to your problems, and develop strategies to reduce your stress. When you connect with the right person you know because you feel less alone. I have years of experience working with adults, children, adolescents, and families who faced seemingly insurmountable problems. Together, we found strength in the struggle, strategies to manage it all, and ways to feel more connected. What I love most about being a therapist is the possibility.

Choosing the right therapist can make all the difference. You may be someone who understands that a behavioral issue is getting in the way of successful relationships at work or at home, but can't figure out how to change it. You may be someone who is going through a life transition such as the birth of a new baby, career change, retirement, or loss of a partner. You may feel anxious, down, or have a general inability to feel happy. Together we can enhance your appreciation of yourself and those around you.

Isn't it frustrating to be confronted with life issues that can cause hardship and emotional pain. That despite your best efforts a more desirable outcome seems illusive. Sometimes, we all need a helping hand to identify and initiate more effective life strategies. I can help you promote desirable changes with either long standing personal issues or more acute ones that have been brought on by circumstances or unfortunate life events. No matter what the situation, the opportunity for positive change is always present.

Hello, whether this is your first time seeking therapy, or you are looking for a fresh perspective, it is important to find the right fit. I bring thirty years of experience, listening, and thinking to help us build a relationship of mutual trust. Sometimes when you really feel heard, you begin to hear yourself differently, and surprising new directions emerge. If appropriate I may use Focusing, as developed by Eugene Gendlin, to help you find next steps, when you gently bring your awareness into your "body knowing" of a situation. Depression and anxiety may then lessen.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Pleasantville and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
