My Approach to Helping

I am passaaionte about what I do because I believe people have the capacity to change through a safe connection with another. I want to hear your story and together we can work through issues that are causing you pain, confusion or anxiety. I provide a safe and nurturing environment so you can feel safe to work on whatever is getting in the way of a healthy life. Whether it be relationship issues, feeling stuck, repeating old behaviors that no longer work for you. I will help you learn coping skills to use and help change negative thought processes. I have a wealth of experience working with a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, relationship issues and life transitions. I start with where you are and your feedback will help determine the frequency of our sessions and what treatment modilities are used. In the beginning meeting once a week on a consistent basis will help us identify your needs and alleviate suffering. Later sessions may lessen. I will give you my recommendation based on your individual needs. I am devoted to client progress and successful outcomes.

More Info About My Practice

I have a Masters in Social Work from New York University. I have been fortunate to work with a variety of people in different settings. For the last 18 years I have worked in schools providing emotional and academic support to adolescents and their families. I have over 20 years experience running different groups. I hope to be the start of you or your family's healing.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I specialize in working with adolescents, young adults and families. I tailor the therapy to your specific needs. I work on boundary issues and take a holistic approach seeing all aspects of a person. I use mindfulness because in todays world we have lost touch with the moment and we often allow negative thinking or emotions make our decisions.
