"What you think about you bring about." Think about this quote for a moment. It describes who you are. If you want to change your feelings and behaviors you must first change the way you think. Therapy begins the moment you pick-up the phone. It is my priority to personally respond to all inquiries and first time appointments. My number one goal is to help you make lasting changes in your life and to unleash your inner strength.

When people think of therapy they tend to imagine a scary place where they have to tap into themselves to open up to strangers. I became a therapist because I wanted to be that safe place for someone to feel comfortable opening up. Everyone has a story. Each person has the right to feel heard, not judged, safe, and understood. My goal is to help them reach that satisfaction in a safe non-judgmental zone.

A key ingredient to successful therapy is having a strong therapeutic relationship. To foster this relationship I am open and honest with my client's and create an environment that allow the people I work with to feel cared for, safe, and free from judgement. My main treatment method is cognitive behavioral therapy however I take an integrative approach to treatment. I consider the individual needs of my clients, I help them regulate their emotions, manage stressors, and function effectively in their daily lives. I work with my clients collaboratively to develop interventions and coping strategies that work for them.

My ideal client is mid 30's to early 60's. These are people in life transitions, whether career, relationship or soul searching. Probably experiencing stress and anxiety or self doubt. Want to follow their hearts, interests and talents so that they can fulfill themselves in life, love, work and relationships. They want to modify or completely change careers, friends or leave an unrewarding relationship. They're looking for help in growing beyond an impasse while wanting to develop to the next level in their lives. They need compassion and clear but kind guidance to move forward.

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.

I support you in finding the real you hidden underneath the conditioned, programmed you. My work is a blend of psychology, energy healing and the teaching of spiritual principles.

By integrating the shadow, that side of the self often denied, into consciousness, we will reclaim feeling states that have been lost to you. In exploring this material, communication, creativity, and grief will be our guide; grief for what was lost, grief for what was missed, and grief for what could have been while speaking with the sides of yourself which often do not get the spotlight.

Peer Relationships in Ridgewood

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Ridgewood

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Ridgewood

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.
