My Approach to Helping
I am a New York State Licensed Clinical Psychologist (#018964), specializing in the treatment of adolescents, adults, families, and parents. I have over 12 years of experience post doctorate in assessment, diagnosis and treatment of anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, substance use, relationship difficulties, and providing parent services. I provide treatment to address problematic behaviors (procrastination, insomnia and substance use), troubling emotions (fear, depression and anxiety), maladaptive thought patterns (self-criticism and rumination), and relationship issues (work, family and dating).
I integrate Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), psychodynamic and relational therapy and Mindfulness Training to assist clients in addressing challenges across the lifespan, including navigating stressful life events, transitions, improving relationships and moving beyond roadblocks toward personal growth. I utilize a collaborative approach and provides a safe space for clients to transform and become the best version of themselves.
I also provide services for parents to successfully navigate issues that arise over the course of parenthood, including: Postpartum blues, depression, or anxiety; Sleep issues; Feeding issues; Sibling adjustment to a new baby; Work transition; Difficulty with separation; Concerns about development; Children with learning difficulties, behavioral issues and substance use. I provide coaching and tools for parents to master these challenges and experience the joys of parenting.
