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.

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 have over thirty years of experience in clinical Social Work and am proud of the many success stories that I have helped my clients to accomplish. In my practice, I believe treatment should be guided with consideration of the unique life experiences of the individual and tailored to their specific circumstances. I believe the therapeutic environment should be a safe, non-judgmental place where clients can explore their experiences and emotions to gain the insight and self-awareness necessary to understand and triumph over the obstacles preventing them from reaching their goals and potential.

Are you are a young adult in college or grad school, or a new professional role feeling slightly overwhelmed or excited, but facing scenarios that are not what you were expecting? Change is hard, even when it’s exactly what you may have wanted. I work with clients who may be feeling unsatisfied or stuck in their lives. Sometimes we may simply want a safe and objective space that is solely their own for regular check-ins on their lives. I love working with creatives, high achievers, and people just embarking on their adult lives to find connection to themselves and what they hope to accomplish.

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.

My practice is gentle and focused on supporting you in helping yourself. I offer supportive counseling and empowerment by promoting self-help and self-compassion. I do not diagnose or label unless it is useful in an educational way . Instead, I am more concerned with what is happening in the here-and-now, what happened before, and in helping you figure out "what now?". Maybe you feel stuck and unsure how to navigate a life transition or adjustment. I work with individuals and families on healing the ripple effects of trauma, addiction, codependency, and grief.

As the world begins to move toward the period of "post pandemic" we may find ourselves struggling. Reports of anxiety and depression are on the rise, particularly among children. Managing our own feelings alongside our loved ones can also feel extremely overwhelming. I feel it is important to have an objective party with whom you can share and process your difficulties while improving healthy coping skills.

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.
