While my main modality is CBT, in my 15 years of practice I've developed an eclectic approach and I often also integrate elements of ACT, DBT, IFS, positive psychology, psychodynamic, systems, mindfulness-based and solution-focused therapies.
*In-person or virtual options.* I work with clients of all ages, to help them heal from symptoms of anxiety and depression, though I specialize with teens and young adults. Therapy provides an opportunity to be completely yourself, without regard to the pressures or demands of the world around you. When you feel safe, you're more free to talk about change. I'll help you build upon your strengths and support you in becoming more aware of patterns that hold you back from achieving your goals. I believe therapy is an important investment in health and will help you create patterns that form the foundation for a satisfied life.

My main approach is grounded in Positive Psychology.
Just listening and asking you "How does that make you feel" is not my approach. We will get work done and you'll get tools to use in your day-to-day life. I'm authentic in sessions, which helps clients relax and creates a collaborative partnership rather than a hierarchy. Working with people from different backgrounds, cultures, gender identities, and sexualities, I acknowledge the need for different approaches and work with you to find the most engaging methods. I am very active in sessions and keep a relaxed atmosphere as we collaborate.

I am a warm, collaborative therapist who enjoys working with children, adults and families. My hope is to build an alliance with each person that will facilitate personal growth and increased satisfaction in relationships. With both children and adults I employ an eclectic mixture of: Attachment Theory, EMDR, FLASH, positive psychology, CBT, solution oriented, social stories, play therapy, and lots of listening. When things seem difficult I can help brainstorm practical strategies for getting through hard times. I have a strong belief that we all know what is best for ourselves, sometimes it's just hard to envision.

(I am accepting new clients at this time) Sometimes seeing something beautiful, inspiring, or even worrisome could make us want change. You may have reached a point in your life where you’re ready for change. And change can be difficult sometimes. Are you not feeling good about yourself? Maybe you're struggling to find some balance in your life. Have your child/teen's behaviors gotten challenging? Or maybe they're struggling with adapting to school thru zoom. It says a lot that you’re reaching out for support, whether it’s for you or your child/teen. I provide psychological assessment and therapy services for youth and adults.

Can we be real for a moment…or maybe 50 minutes? In that time we can have real conversations between real humans living real experiences. What's covering up your truth, holding you back from your dreams, silencing your voice? Overwhelming sadness? Loss? Anger? Abuse? Trauma? Tired of the struggle? You hold the power to create, nourish, and mold your life. This will not be easy; you will be challenged to look at yourself, then take a second look, (maybe a third), a bit longer this time and rediscover who you are; not by masking or covering the wounds, the trauma, the pain, but by redefining it, by your terms.

Are you struggling with anxiety and trauma and turning towards unhealthy coping mechanisms in an attempt to manage your emotions? Now is a trying time for almost everyone, and if you have a trauma background what's coming up in the current environment may be reminiscent of the stress, isolation, and fear induced by early childhood experiences. You don't have to handle this alone, and with clinically tested techniques to regulate the mind and body, it's possible to shift from a place of disempowerment to strength.

Mike Lubofsky, MA, JD, LMFT, Licensed Psychotherapist and Attorney. We are all seeking some sort of reliable refuge. Most of us have internalized the notion that refuge is to be found in external phenomena – other people, places and things. While these external phenomena can be pleasing, reality demonstrates that these phenomena are inherently impermanent and unsatisfactory. In addition, most of us have internalized our likes and dislikes in a way that have given rise to a crystallized belief in the existence of one’s self, the defense and protection of which has come to dictate much of our decision-making through adulthood.
