My Approach to Helping

I believe in providing meaningful, purposeful, and evidence-based psychological services to the community. I use a collaborative and problem solving approach. Using principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy and positive psychology, I work to help clients become engaged in their life and to experience meaningful success as well as loving and fulfilling relationship with others.

More Info About My Practice

Sessions are online at the Virtual Office and are individualized depending on your individual needs and the goals and purpose of services. Payments can be made by credit card. Online sessions are conducted via a HIPAA Secure Client Portal for clients in NY, VA, and FL.

E-therapy services in the Virtual Office include face-to-face video sessions, e-mail support, journaling, and online chat.

I also published an e-book for children. The Summer it Rained: How Boppy the Beagle Learned to See the Sun Behind the Clouds is a story about resilience and optimism and can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or at my website store.

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

I also specialize in the treatment of anxiety, including selective mutism, generalized anxiety disorder, phobias, panic disorder, OCD, and social anxiety. I also treat insomnia.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

I believe the purpose of psychotherapy is to help individuals and families to live fulfilling lives with meaning and purpose.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I have such an amazing opportunity to help people meet their goals, improve their lifestyles, create better life outcomes, and to enjoy living. I love meeting children, families, and adults where they are and helping them get to where they want to be.
