Announcement icon I am available for new appointments only though Video/Teletherapy at this time.
I am a licensed psychologist who takes a collaborative and empathic approach, working to meet each client's individual needs. I match interventions with your unique style and frame of reference. I affirm who you are and work with you to broaden the range of possibilities you see for yourself in all areas of your life. The change in your perspective and associated skills that you learn in psychotherapy empower you to alter your approach to how you live your life. Our work helps you to chart a personal course which will bring greater satisfaction, enjoyment, creativity and fulfillment for yourself and your relationships.
I tailor your treatment to your specific goals. I guide you through a journey of self-awareness, insight and behavior change. I use different modalities of treatment that incorporate working with thoughts, emotions, behaviors, the unconscious and past experiences. The work we do together facilitates the development of self-discovery, meaningful relationships and productive living.
I have postgraduate diplomas from the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies of Adelphi University in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, Marriage and Couple Therapy and Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy. I have an Addiction Specialist Certificate from Adelphi University's Social Work School, am a certified Grief Counselor and have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy.
