Announcement icon Anxiety & Panic can be as contagious as the Coronavirus (COVID-19) itself. Per CDC guidelines, I have experience in teletherapy services
I am an award winning mental health and addictions therapist. Therapy integrates empowerment techniques into a spectrum of evidence based approaches tailored to suit your needs. Treatment is primarily focused on empowering clients with new cognitive perspectives, conflict management, self-reconditioning and behavior modification for mood disorders, substance misuse and addictive behaviors. Clients are encouraged to be proactive in therapy so we can build upon your strengths to develop new skills, an informed knowledge base (knowledge is power) and greater sense of autonomy.
I work well with clients who seek positive change and personal empowerment in their lives. My specialties include treatment for addictions, anxiety, OCD, trauma and PTSD. I develop diverse treatment approaches utilizing empirical research findings to attain successful outcomes for adults, adolescents and couples.
I am published in various psychiatric journals; a former contractor for the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC); a recurring presenter at the NASW-New York City Addictions Institute. I invite you to discover more about Empowering Psychotherapy and Corporate Services @ https://www.Empower-sws.com.
