I am an experienced Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is dedicated to helping individuals who are experiencing difficulty in life due to anxiety, trauma, grief and loss. I am also passionate about relationships and specialize in working with marital challenges such as communication and infidelity.

You've been able to achieve most of your goals and from the outside, everything in your life looks pretty good. No one would ever know what you've went through or are going through right now. You've been working so hard to live the life that you've always dreamed of, but things are not clicking.

Others might have told you to "get over it" or "stop feeling" what ever you've been feeling lately. Or maybe you just can't seem to break through the wall in your relationship that has you feeling disconnected, unloved and like a failure. You may have been reading self-help material, but nothing seems to be working and you've run out of options on how to fix things.

What if there was a way to figure out how to get back to the real you and reclaim your life again. Maybe things seem like they're off track, but somewhere inside, you know it's time to reach out for help to finally fix what seems to be lost and broken. Wouldn't it be great to finally be free from the emotions that are holding you back and start living a life that is more in your control. The past two years have put enough things on "hold." After everything that you've experienced, you deserve to finally learn what will work for you to get what you want and need in this life.

I am an outside of the box thinker who loves working with people that are ready for change and want to break free from life's challenges that are preventing them from living their best version of themselves. I have worked with many individuals and couples who were stuck in life due to overwhelming emotions from anxiety, trauma, loss and relationship problems. It has truly been an honor to walk along side of my clients and see them make progress in learning effective coping skills that have led them to decrease anxiety and depression, improve their self-confidence and have lasting changes in their marriage.

I have over 20 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. In working with me, you will have someone that is invested in seeing you achieve your goals you've set for yourself. I use techniques beyond CBT and am able to create a plan that is individualized, personal and one that will get you to where you want to be.

Therapy and counseling do not need to take place over years. I understand that you want better and quicker results fast. I am able to provide the most current and effective tools to help you feel more comfortable and satisfied in life. Most of my individual clients start to see results in the first few sessions and are better equipped to deal with uncomfortable emotions. Couples that see me begin to quickly learn their relationship strengths and challenges, as well as learn better ways to communicate and connect with their spouse.

My practice is located in East Setauket, NY and is easily accessible from the Long Island Expressway. I also offer Telehealth services for anyone living in the state of New York. Therapy has never been easier to obtain, whether you would like in-person, video or a combination of both types of sessions. Call now for a free 15 minute phone consultation or to schedule your first appointment. You can also learn more about the services I provide on my website: "positivetherapyservices.com".
