We know so much about how our minds and emotions work, how to succeed at relationships, how to manage our stress and anxiety—but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to be healthy.
Everyday I work with people who are trying their best to answer questions like, “Why am I feeling this way?” or “How can I improve my relationships?” Sometimes they cannot get out from the grips of depression or can’t stop feeling anxious or overwhelmed.
Problems often have many layers. I create a safe space for you to connect to and experience your feelings so we can begin to understand those layers and develop skills and habits that move you toward health.
I'm a 1988 graduate from the Business School at Fordham University with a BS in Finance and Economics. After a long career in finance, I returned to education and I earned a masters degree in Counseling from Fairfield University.
I am an EMDRIA-Certified EMDR therapist, a member of the National Association of Cognitive Behavioral Therapists, the American Counseling Association, the National Board for Certified Counselors, Association for Child and Adolescent Counseling. I have a certification in DBT - Dialectic Behavioral Therapy. Certified in Complex Trauma CCTP-II, and Certified in Telemental Health.
I have the ability to establish rapport and build trust through respect and integrity. I believe that all people are inherently resilient with the ability to thrive, given the appropriate support and environment. My clients often see a reduction in symptoms and improved well-being early on in treatment.
Who I Help
I work with all different types of people who need help. I work with adults and teens who may be struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, phobias, addiction, medical trauma, life changes, chronic illness, narcissistic abuse and other issues.
How I Do It
There is no "one size fits all" techniques or strategies. I have to tailor it based on your thoughts and experiences from the past, where the issues are affecting you in the present and create a template for your future goals.
What's in It for You
You get an opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings, and patterns of behavior. Determine where you want to make adjustments. It can also help you learn new coping skills and techniques to better manage daily stressors as life gets lifey.
