About

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York State and a Licensed Professional Counselor in Nevada with over 25 years of clinical experience in behavioral health counseling. I’ve worked with individuals dealing with chemical dependency, mental health issues and co-occurring disorders. I work with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I help people who have experienced physical trauma and emotional abuse. I work with athletes to help them improve their sports performance and mental framework.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion without judgement or labels. My approaches combine cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, motivational and rational-emotive counseling. I also use collaborative and systematic approaches to help my clients.
It takes tremendous courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. We can work together to develop your treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. You will find support and explore different ways of thinking and feeling.
