I am trained in the use of CBT, DBT, EMDR, ACT, mind-body, humanistic, psychodynamic, and other treatment modalities. There are many different "schools" of therapy, and I believe strongly that the best approach is an adaptable one. This means combining elements of CBT, DBT, psychodynamic, humanistic, etc. treatments to suit your particular goals. On top of providing mental health therapy I also provide diet, nutrition, exercise, and yoga advice.

For many life can be overwhelming and difficult at times. My goal is to provide with you with a safe and supportive environment where you can be heard and provided with high quality psychotherapy that covers every facet of your life. My clients leave therapy feeling empowered, refreshed, and more optimistic about their lives. I will work with you at your pace to achieve wellness in all areas of your life and meet your goals. I am currently licensed to treat clients in NY, NJ, and CT. If you are in another state let me know. In session I am warm, accepting, affirming, and bring my sense of humor. I have a strong focus on integrative psychotherapy and mindfulness, which I'm happy to include in our sessions. Let's figure out what works best for you – feel free to reach out for a free phone consultation. I provide teletherapy so therapy is easier than ever!
