Therapy is a journey and I strive to create a comfortable and safe space for my clients to experience that journey and grow throughout. Therapy is a partnership, between client and therapist, and should remain transparent, respectful and safe. Therapy is a space to be your true and unapologetic self and to feel support with no judgement. The foundation of my therapy practice is always person first. I am dedicated to provide clients with the skills and resources to promote healing and self-exploration. I encourage holistic treatment modalities and work intimately with my clients to learn coping techniques to apply in daily life.

We all face challenges in our lives which impact our ability to function at our best, and experience emotional freedom and contentment. Those challenges may be anything from negative thoughts, poor self-esteem, depression and anxiety, life stressors, issues and complex trauma. Many of us are motivated to make changes, but we may not know how. Our thoughts and feelings about our past, present, and future impact every aspect of our lives. Unresolved issues can fester and continue to negatively impact our lives long after the events or situations which caused them and prevent us from living purposeful and meaningful lives.

There are many types of trauma including emotional trauma and grief. While working with children, I use Trauma-Focused Therapy. This is a type of therapy that emphasizes how the traumatic experience impacts a child's mental, behavioral, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. Trauma focused therapy offers a child the skills and strategies needed for understanding, coping with and processing emotions and memories tied to the traumatic experiences.

Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes “overwhelming” and “unfair” seem like more accurate descriptions. When comfort, happiness, fulfillment, and optimism have become lost in the shadows of troublesome life experiences, it is hard to figure out our next step. Though it might be scary, contacting a counselor is the first step toward reclaiming the satisfaction that’s been since-missing. Whether you are seeking therapy for the first time, or looking for a new counselor that better suits your needs, you’ve come to the right place.

Ever feel like you're on a treadmill and going nowhere fast? That no matter what you do or how hard you try you just can't get past life's challenges? There are many moments in life that will cause anxiety, stress, aggravation, sadness, and despair. No matter your age, sex, or profession these symptoms can throw the best of us into a tail spin. The bottom line is that we're human and these are natural occurrences. Talking them out with someone who is willing to listen is the beginning of regaining a sense of stability and wellness.

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 Staten Island?
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.
