I help individuals and couples to feel better about themselves and find relief from challenging times in life. I've seen how much difficulty can exist at certain times in life. However, I've also learned that even the most difficult problems can be overcome, and how this is possible.

Loss and/or abandonment early in life often lays the basis for a persons anxiety and depression.These difficult losses often are what make people stagnate in their lives; with fear of moving forward. Together,in therapy, we work towards exploring these attachment issues. I am particularly interested in how the loss of a mother during the formative years...until late 30's affects daughters. My work includes bereavement issues from all other losses.I treat depression and anxiety disorders and have an in-depth and empathic understanding of how families and individuals live with the intense stress of life.

Why do people seek help? I think people in great pain have somehow lost their ability to navigate in the world. Depression, anxiety, and fear renders a person helpless and one cannot summon their old ways of being. Recent trauma or unresolved issues can suddenly alienate a person from themselves. Often people are wrestling with unexamined fears or emotions that have long been dissociated. In the safety of the therapeutic space, the client can confront that which is most difficult with the aim of once again feeling whole, thus able to pursue, with energy and pleasure, their work and relationships.

Most people solve most problems on their own or with help from friends, but that doesn’t always work. Troubles mount up. Upheavals catch you unawares. “Go to” solutions can leave you empty-handed. Even planned changes can be disorienting - job changes, retirement, new relationships, going off to school, children leaving home. Sometimes people just need help coping, changing bad habits, or thinking through options. Other times people feel hemmed in by circumstances, or find they don’t recognize themselves in the life they lead and want to deepen their sense that the life they are living reflects their own values and choices.

While trusting and connecting with those close to us is something that tends to bring joy, vibrancy, and sense of belonging, the complexity inherent in important and intimate relationships can often leave us feeling thrown off course, irritated and unsure. In trying our best to "get back" what was once there - unspoken compromises become the nature of discourse that all too often leave us feeling stuck, misunderstood, and frustrated. As resentment builds, trust dwindles. As the crater of distance fills with frustration, the hope of reconnecting turns to blame.

As we get ready to say goodbye to summer, we may be slow to welcome the fall as this is a time unlike any other. The last 6 months have proven to be challenging for most, to say the least, and we are reminded of how critical it is to make our mental health a priority and consider talking to a professional. Life can have a not so funny way of surprising us even when we think we have it all figured out. But, there is no need to face it alone! Together, we can develop a plan with real tools that will help you feel more empowered and lead a life of authenticity, less stress, and success! #BeKindToYourself

As a licensed creative arts therapist (drama, art, music, movement, play. creative writing) my skills are especially suitable for clients who have been through levels of trauma (domestic violence, divorce, dating abuse, PTSD, grief and loss, depression, self-harm, anxiety. etc.). In addition, I work with high-functioning kids/teens on the autism spectrum. I have found that the visual and physical work of role-playing, scene-work, improvisation, simple drawings, and video work increases their skills to recognize facial cues and feelings. Through play, these clients build self-esteem, social skills, deepen their emotional range and gain empathy.

Understanding your emotions and being able to express them with a trained professional can help you overcome the challenges in your life. It is common to avoid thoughts and feelings that are distressing, and for this reason many people hesitate calling a therapist until long after they initially contemplate it. I focus on the reasons behind these avoidances in order to make life more manageable, and I do so in a safe, comfortable, and nonjudgmental space. Discussing and understanding your past experiences and relationships are important parts of gaining insight and making necessary changes.

Many of my patients are professionals or artists who struggle with issues with their work and with their personal lives. They often are dealing with a variety of forms of anxiety and at times depression.

As a professor at Columbia University and the Director of Clinical Training for the counseling psychology PhD program, my research focuses on how negative life experiences impact stress and well-being, and how this may be magnified for people from historically disempowered groups. Our clinical work can cover a broad array of issues ranging from identity development and career empowerment to recovery from trauma and sexual violence.
