15 years of experience

Welcome! I'm Liz, a dedicated psychotherapist who works in both New York and New Jersey. With a warm and empathetic approach, I am here to provide you with a safe and affirming space where we can navigate life's challenges together. I specialize in supporting individuals who are coping with various life stressors or undergoing major life changes. Whether you're navigating a difficult transition or seeking guidance for managing anxiety, I'm here to walk alongside you on your journey. My experience in helping people with anxiety has allowed me to develop effective strategies that empower you to regain control and find a sense of peace. I believe in the power of genuine connection and understanding, and I'm committed to helping you uncover your strengths and resilience. Together, we can work towards fostering positive change and growth in your life.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I believe in the power of our therapeutic relationship and the strength that comes from genuine connection. By working collaboratively, we can uncover your unique strengths and help you tap into your inner resilience. Whether you're dealing with anxiety, life changes, or simply seeking a space to be heard, I'm committed to guiding you towards positive change and personal growth.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I approach therapy in an informal, conversational way. With this, I incorporate different tools from the following approaches: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT), as well as mindfulness. Sessions are not structured around these models, but the approaches are woven in; as situations are discussed in sessions, prompts and strategies are shared. Resources to explore between sessions can also be provided if this were something a client wanted to read and reflect on between appointments.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

With years of experience, I've developed a deep understanding of the complexities of anxiety. I'm here to provide practical tools and coping strategies to help you manage anxious thoughts and regain a sense of control. Additionally, I pride myself on being an attentive and empathic sounding board, ready to help you process through difficult feelings and explore the roots of your emotions. I pride myself on providing a non-judgmental, safe space, where we can delve into stressful or worrisome feelings together and work towards finding clarity and resolution.
