My Approach to Helping

Are you living your life the way you always thought you would?
Are you struggling to find meaning with your life?
Do people tell you you're "too emotional"?
Do you find yourself repeating unfortunate patterns and behaviors and don’t know why?
Would you like to be flourishing?

I help clients understand the decisions they make, clarify their direction and purpose, and map out steps toward the life they really want; a Life Worth Living. Whether your issues stem from early life trauma, racism, sexism, religious tradition, ineffective communication skills, poor coping, low self-esteem, etc., I can help you recover that essential You and find joy in your life again.

More Info About My Practice

Clients are encouraged to think of therapy as part of a journey of Wellbeing, which includes attention to sleep, nutrition, self-expression, connectedness, and bodywork. Mindfulness is key and we will find ways for you to unlock its potential for your personal growth. I offer early and late hours to fit your busy schedule. Working with me, you will identify measurable goals to focus the experience of therapy and facilitate a growing sense of resilience, building towards a life that works for you. Deciding to seek counseling can be daunting for some people. I am passionate about putting people at ease and helping them to reclaim their Best Selves.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Yeah, so have I. Therapists who seemed more interested in their own stories than in helping me. Therapists who sat there silently, waiting for me to speak, not guiding the session at all. Therapists who tried to make me do what They wanted me to do. One therapist even let me tell me cry through the entire initial session, only to announce that she no longer had availability to see me! Bad therapy experiences are not easy to recover from and can really leave a bad taste in your mouth.

The fact is, it can take a while to find a "good fit" between client and therapist. When I worked in an Intensive Outpatient program, part of my job was helping my clients to find an outpatient therapist, before discharging them from our agency. I would encourage them to use the initial phone call to learn as much as they could, before making an appointment. I suggested they ask the therapist to "tell me about your approach to counseling." A therapist should be able to tell you, in a few sentences, how they work with clients and what their expectations are for the counseling relationship.

If you're thinking about seeing a therapist, think about what you'd like to know about them. Maybe even check out their website and see what you can learn, before you call. That way, you can have a sense of who they are and if you think it's a good fit, BEFORE the first counseling session. I offer free, initial consultations for new clients. If interested, call (609) 248-0536. Because my practice is online, I can see clients residing anywhere in NJ.
