**Accepting referrals in CT office only** I am an NYU trained licensed clinical social worker and have completed postgraduate work in individual, couples, family and group therapy at several New York City institutes. I am licensed to practice psychotherapy in New York and Connecticut and have private practices in both states. I'm the former director of a children's mental health clinic, but now focus on work with adults, adolescents, couples and families. My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, eating disorders, parenting issues, adjustment problems, relationship conflicts, and work difficulties.
I believe the relationship between the therapist and client is crucial to the work's success, and that you should feel you have the right "fit". We would work hard to figure out why your life isn't working the way you want it to and how to fix it.
This often involves your becoming more aware of what the obstacles are and ways to have more control and make choices. Feel free to contact me to set up a consultation to see if I could be of help to you. CURRENTLY NOT TAKING REFERRALS IN NYC. CALL OR EMAIL FOR OLD LYME REFERRALS.
