My thirty plus years of experience has been working with adults, couples, adolescents, and families in the areas of abuse , addictions, trauma, divorce, blended family and communication issues.
Therapy is an opportunity to share with an unbiased person the sorting through of life-issues that a person is experiencing. Together, the therapist and the client create manageable and realistic solutions, whether in an individual, couple or family setting, honoring confidentiality and building trust.

I graduated from Pace University with my Master's Degree as a Licensed Mental Health Therapist and Substance Abuse Counselor. I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy as each individual has specific treatment needs as each person's experiences and the emotional impact of those experiences are unique to that individual. This is why my theoretical approach is humanistic and client-centered. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Adler, and Gestalt.

My background and training has allowed me to work with individuals, couples, and families, with substance abuse , trauma, bullying, depression, family conflicts, anxiety, and mindfulness.
Where do you go when you have had enough? Do you believe in something or someone greater than yourself? Do you believe in trusting the process towards a better life?To be a better, stronger me, I had to let go and trust in someone, trust in something, and eventually trust in myself. Asking for help does not make us weak and carrying life events can bring continuous burdens and sadness. I want to work with you to try different ways to help you be released from the bondage of self. Therapy can be a helping and healing process but in order to start that process we may have to let go and let God!

Depression and anxiety can hurt and the answer does not always come from a prescription.You deserve to work with someone you trust and feel comfortable with. You deserve someone who will not judge you or tell you that your problems are all in your head. Additionally, if you are struggling with a chemical addiction, we need to treat the addiction AND what is going on with you emotionally.

I have experience working with a wide variety of issues including substance abuse , codependency, divorce, parenting, physical/sexual abuse , domestic violence , grief/loss, depression, anxiety, stage of life issues, crisis intervention, self esteem and school/employment stressors, etc.
Relationships can be one of the biggest blessings and also one of the biggest stresses in your life. It's amazing how quickly life can get in the way of our relationships and cause chaos in our lives. We have obligations, responsibilities and demands that we have to keep up with, while putting in work to create a successful relationship. It can be exhausting at times and things can fall apart quickly. Therapy can be helpful for not just the couple or family, but the individual.

A Specialty of mine is Narcissistic Abuse Recovery.
I believe each of us has the ability to heal from emotional pain and damage to our self-esteem. I believe to do this, the source of the “original wound/s” must be identified along with the resulting false image we came to have of ourselves. I believe this is Essential in order to produce change in our behavior... which produces Change in our lives. I believe that a Good Fit between a person and his/her therapist is also Essential to the therapeutic process. Change can be one baby step at a time or a sudden “growth spurt.” I believe knowledge is empowering. And I believe in self-compassion and perseverance. And laughter.

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
