I am best able to assist those who struggle with competitive relationships, and feelings of being on the losing side in their interactions with those they love. I have seen couples, individuals, and entire families struggling with attempts to force one another to 'win' arguments, only to find that they never seem to go away fully. Many times, other issues such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders,sexual dysfunction or substance abuse becomes the main issue which families show to others the competitive nature which occurs within the family system, and are most concerned when they call for an initial session.

I have been working in the social work field since 1984. About 25 years ago, I started my full time private practice, and can still say that I love what I do. 30 years working with people provides me with a wealth of knowledge. A client only needs to bring themselves and have a willingness to commit to the therapeutic process. I have also enjoyed teaching as an adjunct instructor at The Adelphi University School of Social Work, where I teach graduate level classes in Individual Treatment, Group Treatment and Family/Marital Treatment.

Asking for help can be difficult, especially with the mental health stigma that surrounds us! The reality is that everyone is subjected to the unpredictable stressors of life, and it's normal to feel the weight of that. Whether you are mandated or voluntarily seeking assistance, I will be here for you every step of the way. My approach to treatment is non-judgmental and empathetic, as everyone deserves a chance to be the best version of themselves no matter what their history entails. It is my belief that people are not defined by a single moment or period in their life. What matters is here and now, so let's make positive changes!

Do you know an adult, teen or child on the autism spectrum who struggles with social interaction? Do they experience anxiety, frustration or depressive symptoms during social interactions? As a social worker with eleven years of experience with the autism population, I often encounter individuals on the spectrum who say, “I do not have any friends," or "I don’t know how to make friends." To address this overwhelming need, I am now offering a social skills group for adults, teens and children of all abilities. As adults and teens learn social skills, they also develop meaningful friendships with group members.

"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." - C.G. Jung. The process of self-reflection can both be illuminating and freeing. By shining the light of awareness on that which is unknown, you are on the path to personal growth and unlocking your innate potential. Do you feel stuck and overwhelmed? Do you desire balance within your own being? Or as if you are merely existing rather than living the life you truly wish? Taking the first step and reaching out for help is truly an exercise in courage.

During my time in graduate school I became very interested in the Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) process and how empirically effective it has proven to be. The goal is for clients to realize that changing one's ideas or cognition about events can change negative responses into positive ones. As I put this theory into practice during internships, I began to feel more confident in the effectiveness of the techniques and how they could be utilized for the many diverse issues my clients were facing.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Smithtown, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.
