Are you struggling with perceptions of your identity? Do you feel that you don't fit in your own skin? Do you feel anxious about being your authentic self? Are you unsure what it means to be yourself? Do you find yourself making yourself smaller to fit into a box? Human identity is complex and I want to help you feel free to express yourself. Society can be constraining as it tries to make us fit into boxes. I want to help you transform into the person you are meant to be.

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.

My approach to therapy is psychoanalytically informed, borrowing tools from cognitive behavioral and mindfulness-based approaches. I take time to get to know the person in their present day-to-day life, as well looking carefully at past history, patterns of thought and behavior, and relationship dynamics. My goal is for my clients to develop a deepened relationship to themselves. This work involves us partnering to find language and create structures that facilitate change.

I aim to work with clients in a collaborative manner. I find clients who invest in themselves and approach therapy as willing and able participants find the most benefit. I am very comfortable and familiar working with people who experience anxiety and depression, especially as it pertains to busy hardworking lives. In addition, I believe mental health and wellness are an important duo in maintaining balance. When one aspect of life is out of sync it can greatly impact the other areas.

I work with adults suffering from anxiety, panic, depression, and aftermaths of psychological trauma. I help individuals who experience significant distress because of their hard relationships with the toxic parent or partner.

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.

My background and experience are quite varied, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and neuropsychological perspectives. This allows me to approach each situation with a unique focus on the need of the individual or individuals involved, and to provide treatment tailored to those needs (rather than to narrow conceptualization on my part of what psychotherapy 'is'). I also frequently draw upon the practice of meditation in helping people cope with anxiety, depression, learning issues, impulsivity, addiction, and so on. My commitment is to helping people gain both self-understanding and the ability to make substantive changes in behavior.

Hi there, welcome to my profile. This personal statement is a challenge for me to write because the truth is that therapy has to start with a therapist you can feel comfortable with and click with in a way that makes you feel safe. Sometimes you can tell right away that your therapist is someone you are a good match with or not, sometimes it takes longer (especially with teens). Please feel free to reach out to me and we can spend some time on the phone to see if you feel comfortable enough to make a first appointment.

What type of Pleasantville 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 Pleasantville?
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.
