As a USN disabled Veteran, I have learned firsthand that life is filled with many difficult challenges and much is outside of our control but, with the desire to change and hard work, you can overcome traumatic events and live life to its fullest. My focus is on helping individuals, couples, children, and families cope and overcome hardships related to disabilities, interpersonal abuse and sexual trauma, loss and grief, separation and divorce, combat and military trauma, mental illness, and all of our daily life stressors. Life can be tough, but together, we can find positive ways to cope and thrive no matter the challenge.

Over the years, I have treated many clients who are concerned about intimacy, relationships, divorce, re-marriage, step-parenting, chronic pain/illness, substance abuse, mood disorders, sexual concerns, grief and loss, adjusting to issues of Military life, etc.
Are you thinking about starting therapy during “Covid times”? I am providing video therapy to any resident of NJ. Our lives have been changed significantly since last March, regardless of whether or not we’ve contracted the virus. We’re social distancing and somewhat disconnected from family and friends plus our personal politics may add to our isolation. Many people are experiencing anxiety, depression and relationship issues as a result. Most of my clients had initial reservations about trying telehealth but, much like everything else lately, we’re resilient and go with the changes. The benefits of telehealth are that you don’t

Having worked as a crisis counselor at FEMA disaster centers, I helped many people work through emotional difficulties in the aftermath of a crisis. During the pandemic I offer telehealth sessions. Outside of the residual COVID-19 issues, you might just need a caring person to listen and help you navigate the hills and find refuge in the valleys of everyday life.
