There are times when life doesn't go as planned. Stress, conflict, fear, uncertainty, sadness and anxiety take over. It is very hard to go through this alone and sometimes friends and family may not understand. Talking to a professional can be very relieving. I am a non-judgmental, interactive and supportive therapist who will listen to you and help you move towards positive change.

Therapy is about telling the truth. Listening for it, discovering it, and acknowledging it with the help of someone who makes that possible through trust. It's also about growth beyond difficult times, with guidance and encouragement. Over the last 25 years, mental health studies reveal that the most significant factor in successful outcomes is the alliance between the therapist and client. Often the practitioner's credentials, methodology, and theoretical framework are secondary. I specialize in work with couples, individuals and adolescents. My credentials include the 6-year psychotherapy privilege, the highest licensing of my profession in New York State.

The great majority of my clients suffer from anxiety and depression often triggered by conflicts in families, school, jobs, with authority figures, and peers. I enable my clients unlock their strengths and skill sets to unstick themselves, address their barriers and conflicts, and find solutions. My client base includes teachers, students, law enforcement officers, parents, professionals, and financial advisers. Through my leadership experience in crises and trauma events (including 9/11), I have developed a coping model presented in my book, Resiliency. I use this model to help people to "bounce back" and restore high-level functioning. My approaches are short-term and solution-based.

Perhaps you are struggling as you or a relative begin hospice care or approach the end stage of a disease. You might be grieving a beloved pet. Loss, although universal, can feel isolating and unbearable to endure. I can help grieving people feel better - you don't need to go through this alone.

Are you a law enforcement officer who has thought about speaking to a professional regarding a personal or family issue, but have never felt comfortable reaching out for help? The decision to seek outside help is never easy and the process is even harder for those in law enforcement because of serious and real concerns regarding confidentiality. I am completely independent from your department; this ensures strict confidentiality.

Being a parent is a gift. However, some days we can find ourselves wondering if we are doing our best by our children, our partners and even ourselves. With life's demands - work, household responsibilities, other activities - one can find themselves feeling as if they are stretched thin. Stress that is left unchecked can run the risk of escalating to a severe presentation of anxiety or depression. This can in turn affect the way we parent and resolve family conflict. As a Mother and Wife I bring this relateability to our conversations.

Though our predicaments can often feel hopeless, and seeking relief can feel futile, psychotherapy proves daily that, in the care of a specialist, an altered perspective can offer life-changing insight, as well as the development of healthy and effective coping strategies to deal with a multitude of challenges.

During our most challenging seasons we can feel overwhelmed, stuck, and alone. Navigating these challenging seasons can be painful, as we often fail to manage the intensity of the thoughts and emotions experienced. Healthy choices that can be made, do not seem so clear. But, what if the difficult season is here to help us to discover something essential about ourselves or others? Once acknowledged as such, the process can begin of healing, living, and thriving as a new awareness is recognized, a need addressed, an opportunity seen, strengths developed; all leading to growth, deeper connection, and a greater sense of well-being.

Psychotherapy is a practice of deep listening and understanding. I help people develop insight into their troubles and look into habitual patterns that may create obstacles to their life goals. Together, we identify these patterns, explore feelings, and put effective coping skills into practice. When working with children, my approach invites the family in. Parent coaching, which involves a neurobiological understanding, and psychodynamic insight are integral. Through play therapy I help children discover ways to communicate their experience. The purpose is to establish a connection that encourages growth and the sense that children have a positive impact in their world.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Ridgewood, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Ridgewood listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
