I am a licensed trauma therapist and I provide teletherapy to individuals throughout New York state. My specialty is developing distress tolerance, or making stress feel less overwhelming. In our sessions, I’ll provide the opportunity for you to reconnect with a sense of safety to move into a fuller life.

I provide tele-therapy video sessions in 45 or 60 minute sessions. I work with children 5-18, and adults 18+ as individuals, or as families. I practice from a combination of therapy models. I use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) as the basis for skill building. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a guide for regulating the nervous system. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) builds a deeper connection to our authentic goals.

Working with these evidence-based models, I create a therapeutic space to help you:
– Establish and practice interpersonal skills for use in relationships and conflict management.
– Learn to understand and regulate feelings of discomfort, anxiety, and fear.
– Develop a deeper sense of compassion towards yourself to reduce self-sabotaging behaviors.
– Work through your trauma narrative, using skills to release tension trapped in your body.
– Improve understanding and recognition of emotions to develop healthier means of expression.
