Practice Description:
Due to the Coronavirus, I am currently offering remote teletherapy/video sessions to all clients. I am an out-of-network clinician and can provide a bill for you to submit to your insurance company.

Welcome! In psychotherapy and couples counseling, I use a flexible and interactive approach to assist clients in developing new coping strategies. I do this by helping clients to understand how their moods are influenced by the interplay between biological factors and their past and present experiences. I also educate clients about the new advances in neuroscience that emphasize the role of the brain in shaping how we feel and our ability to manage uncomfortable feelings. This body of research informs us about why it is often so hard to change how we feel. It confirms why it is difficult to "snap out" of negative feeling states.

I work with couples, living together, married, living apart and straight, gay, lesbian, and transgender people.

My purpose is to create a safe environment where clients can access and express painful and angry feelings. I help clients to develop insight into what triggers unhealthy, self-critical thoughts, self-defeating patterns of behavior, the sources of debilitating depression and anxiety, personal dissatisfaction, and feelings.

My practice includes work with a wide variety of individuals and couples whose presenting issues are quite diverse. Some of the of the typical issues she works with in her psychotherapy and counseling practice are:

•Low Self-Esteem
•Relationship Troubles (family, work, friends)
•Couples Issues (marital conflict, divorce, relationship problems of people living together or separately, straight, gay and lesbian, transgender)
•Job Stress and Dissatisfaction
•Gay and Lesbian Issues (LGBT)
•Identity Issues
•Substance Abuse and Recovery Issues
•Coping with Chronic Illness

As an author, I am a recent contributor to, the award-winning online continuing education website for mental health professionals. As an educator, I have taught as an adjunct professor of advanced clinical courses at Adelphi University's School of Social Work, I have supervised therapists in the psychotherapy and psychoanalytic training programs.
