I specialize in helping you find the path to healing from past and present traumas, including birth trauma, and postpartum. I am a lactation consultant, birth doula, and NYS licensed social worker.

For people I work with who are looking to change thought patterns, I usually use CBT, narrative therapy or DBT based interventions.
Currently Accepting New Clients If you've been feeling stuck for a while, or are getting tired of knowing you're not at your best, it might be time to think about starting therapy. Many people know themselves enough to recognize that something is "off" and would benefit from talking through what they need to do to get to a better head space. You don't necessarily need a specific diagnosis or a specific goal in mind to know that you would like to start feeling better.

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,

**I am only accepting new patients for my DBT Skills groups**.
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 seek to work collaboratively with my clients to identify concerns and develop coping skills to move from feeling "stuck" in difficult life situations, to gain deeper self awareness and to attain personal growth.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Poughkeepsie?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
