Do past beliefs and negative patterns hold you back from living life fully? If so, you need to know that HEALING and CHANGE are always possible. IT IS NEVER TOO LATE. Successful clients want to change and are committed to the emotional work necessary to achieve their goals. This takes courage...and if you are resonating with this, you have already taken the first step.

I work with individuals, families and couples.

My areas of expertise include:
anxiety and phobias
adults who were wounded as children
relationship issues
identity and life crises
creativity blocks
life goals related to aging
...and breaking negative patterns (be they personal, romantic, platonic, familial or professional)

Treatment goals are collaboratively identified and are adjusted based on changing client needs and desires.

Often, no single treatment technique is sufficient in helping clients achieve both the intellectual insight and emotional understanding needed for lasting change. Among the therapeutic techniques I offer, alone or in combination, are SENSORIMOTOR PSYCHOTHERAPY, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, EMDR, Short-Term Solution Focused Psychotherapy, Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy, and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy..

i have trained with some of the leading experts in the field of Psychotherapy. But the MOST IMPORTANT thing that I bring to my clients' healing process isn't what I know. IT'S WHAT I UNDERSTAND.
I am a New York State licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-R) and am a Board Certified Diplomate (BCD) in Clinical Social Work. What these letters indicate is that I take my work and responsibility very seriously, and that I am recognized by New York State at the highest level of professional training and experience to practice psychotherapy. it also means that insurance companies will reimburse you for working with me if you have out-of-network benefits. While I am not a participating provider with any network and do not accept insurance directly, I will help you to navigate the insurance waters.

I have been in private practice since 1989. Over the years I have discovered that while traditional "talk therapy" alone works for some people. many people need more than intellectual insight alone in order to change. Long-standing patterns of dysfunctional thoughts and behavior often have their origins in earlier life. They are extremely powerful, yet are often unconscious, have "no words" and are therefore inaccessible to talk therapy. I have been trained and certified in a number of techniques that, used separately or together, allow clients to access those thoughts and feelings that have no words, thereby leading to powerful and lasting change.

I consider it an honor and privilege to do the work that I do. I firmly believe in the healing potential of each person, that everyone (with the right kind of help and the courage to commit to the emotional healing process) can change and live a happier more fulfilled life...and that it is never too late.
