Grace Street Counseling is here to provide support. You don't have to figure it all out on your own.

I'm a licensed clinical psychologist and certified school psychologist, specializing in treating children, adolescents, and families using Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) in homes, schools and the community. CBT treatment is highly recommended for anxiety, impulse, and conduct disorders. While it is well-established that CBT within real-world settings significantly improves functioning compared to office-based treatment, few professionals accept the challenge! As a professional with 20 years of experience traveling to families throughout Long Island, I understand that intense emotions, troubled relationships and significant avoidance cannot simply be discussed away in therapy, but mindfully experienced and addressed when and where they occur.

I especially like to help clients better their close relationships with partners, and have found that helping relationships is an excellent way to improve one's mental and physical health. Sometimes it is best to address individual problems such as anger and depression before engaging in therapy for the relationship and I always see clients individually before seeing them together. In some cases I help clients separate from the relationship with as little negative fallout on themselves or children. I conducted custody evaluations for 20 years but also help couples mediate differences as an alternative to court intervention.

I believe everyone has a story, and it is my job to create a safe space for my clients to share theirs and continue writing it in a way that is empowering and meaningful to them. I use CBT and psychoanalytic techniques with a trauma-informed lens to help my clients better understand themselves-their glows and grows- in relation to their families, peers, and communities. In discussing their past and present, we problem solve next steps that create a rewarding future.

As a therapist I help patients make sense of their lives, past and present, enabling them to understand what causes their current struggles. This provides an opportunity for change by creating more fulfillment. Life is a challenging process; from the moment we are born we have experiences that affect us and we carry these throughout our lives. Therapy provides an opportunity to feel better and grow as a person. It can alleviate symptoms by providing insight which helps develop your most genuine and creative self.

What type of Stony Brook 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 Stony Brook?
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.
