My Philosophy of “Let’s make it work” builds on the strength of individuals while acknowledging and accepting, but minimizing their weaknesses. I am a trained Cognitive Behavioral Therapist with a strong commitment to the overall health of those interested in engaging and making positive changes in their lives. In understanding the importance of the “whole” development of a person, I strive to make sure each session is not only person centered, but also approached in a holistic manner.
While working on my Master’s at NYU, I developed a strong commitment to working with children and teens. My experiences have helped me work with some of the most challenging children and producing change through evidence based-practices. Additionally, my use of Play Therapy has shown efficacy with children expressing themselves in creative ways. Although my area of specialty is with teen and children, I am uniquely qualified to work with adults, Veterans, families, and couples.
My primary work is with children and teen concerns related to: depression, anxiety, ADHD, Autism, Learning Disabilities, fear, anger, school problems, trauma, abuse and school issues. I am also well trained to work with adult concerns of: depression, anxiety, alcoholism, PTSD, ADHD, divorce, couples, grief, trauma, abuse, and self-esteem.
