Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I'm a licensed family therapist based in Connecticut. For nearly half a century, I have been teaching individuals, couples and groups the skills to manage emotions and relationships.
I have trained in many Western and Eastern modalities, and my deep well of knowledge allows me to tailor principles and techniques to fit the specific needs and goals of my clients.
I incorporate emotion education into psychotherapy as well as coaching, and specialize in providing clients tools to independently manage their emotions long after they have worked with me.
I draw from a lifetime of experiences to guide clients on their journey, from humorous homilies on healing to instructive tales of trekking in the Himalayas. I am trained in neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), Eriksonian hypnotherapy, tapping (EFT), pranic healing, yoga and breathwork. Sought out by young professionals and boomers alike, my brand of results-oriented therapy channels problems into opportunities and never lets a good crisis go to waste.
An accomplished playwright, I help my clients transform, improve and rewrite their personal and family scripts to create a fulfilling, creative and connective narrative for their lives.
