I like to think of myself as a seasoned clinician who has adapted and adjusted to the changing times. I have evolved my craft toward a mindfully oriented practice which I combine with cognitive, behavioral, insight and DBT techniques. My work supports adults going through their journey of radical acceptance focusing on those life changing events which can often cause emotional dysregulation. Whether the emotional rollercoaster is based on abandonment, trauma, inability to emotionally attach / detach to health relationships, aging, divorce, affairs or grief resulting in phobias, fears, anxieties or depression,

There are things in life that prevent us from moving forward, some of these things include anger, bitterness, thinking patterns or habits that keep us from change, unresolved pain, and feelings of hopelessness and fear. We often want to let go of these, but struggle to know how, or where to begin. If you are tired of feeling stuck, and desire growth and change, consider reaching out. Working with a counselor does not have to be a last-minute resort. I am here to facilitate your understanding of self and others. It takes courage to change and heal. Transformation happens from within, and I would love to aid you with that process.

I have the best job ever!! I love what I do because I am constantly intrigued and amazed by new people and their stories. My approach to helping others involves agreeing on goals and then providing people with specific skills to meet those goals...yes, this usually involves completing some type of "homework" assignment because real change happens when skills are used outside of the therapist's office! I like to help people understand the relationship between their thoughts, emotions and behaviors and then use that increased self-awareness to learn new, more rational and effective ways of handling situations and emotions.

."I belong, therefore I am." The sense of belonging has often been wounded, damaged or undeveloped. Initially in our family, later in school, with friends and at work. Through the process of exploration and self-searching, we can begin to let ourselves go. When we are kind, and less consumed by our own ego; the darkness of depression and anxiety have less of a hold and we can find freedom.

What type of Poughkeepsie 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 Poughkeepsie?
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.
