My Approach to Helping
We all have strengths that we can develop, as well as challenges from which we can grow. Each crisis in our lives is an opportunity for healing and growth. As your therapist, I will use a variety of techniques to help you achieve your personal, professional, and spiritual goals. My primary approach is relational psychodynamic, meaning I focus on the healing power of the therapeutic relationship. An interactive, and empathic therapist, I offer advice and support when needed, and I share my own experiences when I think they will be helpful. Though I have extensive, in-depth training, I rely greatly on intuition and humor in my work.
More Info About My Practice
In addition to providing Individual and Couples therapy, I am certified in Psychoanalysis (Contemporary Relational approach), and I provide Professional Consultation (Supervision) to licensed clinicians. I have over 32 years of psychotherapy experience. A certified Clinical Telemental Health Provider and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, I am licensed in New Jersey, New York, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Virginia and Florida.
I am also a Certified Group Psychotherapist. Group therapy is a wonderful way to develop and improve relationships with significant others, family members, friends, colleagues--and other group members. My group is open to women, persons who are gender-nonconforming and men. We explore a broad variety of members' issues in a supportive and gently challenging environment. We meet Thursdays at 5 pm. Adults of all ages and cultures welcome.
I offer a Free Consultation of up to 15 minutes to answer any questions you might have and to see whether we might be a good fit. Feel free to contact me--I look forward to hearing from you!
