I look forward to working with you!

Hello and welcome. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. Reaching out to a “stranger” to enter your life is the hard part, my goal is to provide a safe environment where you can explore and enhance your strengths that will empower you to find strategies that support you through life’s challenges. Focus on allowing you to become the “captain” of your voyage in life and joining you in various parts of this journey. There are many times in our lives that for brief periods we just need some support and guidance around the challenges we face whether it is intrapersonal (within our own self) or interpersonal (with others), or just coping with changes that occur during our lifespan. Our goal is to empower your inner resources to live your authentic self in this journey of life. I encourage open communication and connection with those I work with. I utilize various modalities and fit the experience to each unique individual, couple or family. It is important that we utilize all aspects of our “selves”, including physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual dimensions.

Or maybe you have no idea what you want, but you just know something is missing. That pressure alone can feel debilitating.

I also obtained a post graduate degree from the University of London. I am licensed to practice in the State of Michigan as well as the State of Connecticut. If you are facing challenges in your life and are considering therapy I am happy to assist. Many of us experience issues with anxiety, confidence, and self-esteem. Emotions, thoughts and behaviors can be very challenging. It is my goal to assist clients with understanding how these three components are interrelated and to assist clients with empowering themselves to achieve increased awareness, introspection and insight and gain a happier life. Are you faced with worry? Do you find yourself overthinking and experiencing racing thoughts? Perhaps you experience social anxiety. Are you facing a history of family trauma? Or perhaps, issues with communication and conflict in a relationship? Perhaps you are dealing with a stressful matter related to your career, or educational endeavors. Or, you may be dealing with identity issues and/or gender changes. These are just some of the examples of the topics I can address with you. My primary areas of interest include persons suffering from anxiety, persons with a history of family trauma, and individuals and couples experiencing problems with communication and conflicts. I also enjoy working with individuals in the LGBTQ+ community. Whatever issues you may be facing, it is a courageous step to seek and obtain counseling services and I am happy to offer a friendly approach and a safe, confidential, respectful, and supportive environment.

Telehealth Tips If you're used to seeing your mental health professional in their office, it may take some time to adjust to this new process. Take heart that our patients typically find video conferencing beneficial. Make a list of the main symptoms you want to address in the conversation. Also be sure to indicate when your symptoms started, what tends to exacerbate them, and what, if anything, seems to soothe them. Write down questions. Remember that mental health appointments are a two-way street. This is your chance to ask questions you have about your symptoms, brain scan, diagnosis, and treatment. Having a list of questions ready can help you remember to ask them. Have your medical and psychiatric history handy. Your therapist may ask questions about past medical or psychological issues in addition to inquiring about names and dosages of medications you have taken. Having this information available can save precious minutes during your appointment so you can spend more time talking about how you are going to get healthy. Minimize distractions and choose a quiet, comfortable spot One of the best strategies to ensure a meaningful appointment is to eliminate distractions. Close your door, turn off the notifications on your phone, and make sure someone is watching the kids so you can focus. Being able to hear clearly is another important element of an effective mental Tele-Health Zoom appointment. Try to minimize any background noise, such as the TV, the washing machine, or a barking dog. In addition, it's important that you feel comfortable in your setting during your appointment. Find a spot where you are relaxed and at ease. Troubleshoot technology beforehand. Find out what technology will be used and make sure you know how to use it prior to your appointment. Are you signed up for Zoom, Skype, or another video conferencing app? Do you know how it works? If you have never used the app before, do a practice call with a friend beforehand so you can work out the kinks. Set a reminder to keep appointment.

Hello there! I am in this field to make changes to how things have been done to date. Somehow SEX, our most basic primary human experience known to all who have ever existed on this planet, has historically been absent from the therapy room. We have work to do in our field and my hope is to forge a new path in therapeutic care that is sex-positive, welcoming and accepting, embracing all relationship models and gender and identity expressions to feel safe, seen and heard. It is time for us to come out of the proverbial closet and openly discuss those topics that have always been regarded as most taboo and shameful in our social establishments and system. In order to create the fullest, most vibrant and authentic version of ourselves, it's time to start confronting those darkest and deepest parts within ourselves, wrapping our therapeutic arms around them and showing them the love, support and value that they deserve.

Finding and accepting yourself is not always an easy task and sometimes we all need a little help or guidance. That's where I come in.

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 10 years of experience in the mental health field. My greatest passion is bringing healing to people who have been through traumatic and stressful events. I am passionate about taking an integrative approach to therapy, using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), trauma informed, experiential and person centered techniques to treat the whole person and ensure that what is done in therapy is personalized, collaborative and unique to each client. My therapeutic approach is based on the belief that clients are in charge of their counseling experience. I have experience working with both teenagers, adults, and couples in outpatient settings, working in partnership with clients to utilize their strengths to help them sort out their challenges and achieve their goals. I acquired my Bachelor’s Degree in Counseling and then Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Post University. I view the counseling process as an alliance between both client and therapist and consider the client as the expert of their lives. Within the structure of the therapeutic relationship, clients can access their inner strengths and promote change. I hope to work with you soon!

I am a licensed clinical social worker and certified psychanalyst with certified CBT training as well and a Ph.D in an allied field. I had taught at UCLA, USC, and Antioch Universities and I was asked to try to give and develop a college program at the California Institution for Women, at the time, the only facility for female felons in the state. Shortly, I realized I needed clinical training and went back to school specializing in children and families. Later I moved to NYC to attend The Postgraduate Center for Mental Health, an affiliate of New York University. I did one training for adults (5 years) and 3 of the 4 years for the child and adolescent track. I have worked in clinics as well as private practice in both New York and CT.

“Together, we will work on strategies that address the root cause of difficulties. We have what we need inside us. Let’s use curiosity and compassion to ask the hard questions. Those answers are the gateway to resolution. Call me and let’s talk.” I believe there are no broken people. Decisions made during difficult, emotional times are influenced by unsettled parts. Through talk therapy, we can address past hurts in a safe and supportive therapeutic space free of judgment. Doing so will begin the healing process. The focus is to empower your quiet voice within to share your truth with first yourself and then others. The goal is to end historic pain by creating a more pleasant present, which allows you to live your best life.
