Our ideal client is someone who has been suffering from PTSD and is unable to find relief. We have an innovative procedure at our office called the Stellate Ganglion Block, and we are the ONLY office between NYC and MD that provides this service. Stellate ganglion block is a quick and effective treatment option for refractory PTSD symptoms. The SGB takes less than 15 minutes to perform, and RESULTS can begin to be felt in as little as 30 minutes. This procedure was expressly used to treat PTSD for the first time in 2008. Since then, many studies, including randomized controlled trials have demonstrated improvement in PTSD symptoms.

"It is the client who knows what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, what experiences have been deeply buried." (Carl Rogers, 1961) I view therapy as a journey that is led by clients and work toward guiding others through the therapeutic journey by providing a supportive environment. Therapy is tailored to people's styles, growth edges, and strengths. A collaborative relationship between a therapist and client is essential to working toward self-growth and wellness. I value the use of research informed techniques. I join clients on their therapeutic journey with the ultimate goal of wellness.

I work with clients to help them better manage stress; manage depression symptoms; manage anxiety; process life transitions; and process existential questions.

Everyone’s loss and grief is unique, and yet loss and grief are universal human experiences. There is no one right way to grieve. No universal stages or timetables. No specific coping strategies that are effective for everyone. Yet most people who have experienced a significant loss, have much in common and are able to find ways to cope with their loss and able to reinvest in life. We will find coping strategies that will work for you, positive ways to stay connected to your deceased loved one, and increase meaningful activity and interactions with others.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
