Thank you for stopping by my website. I am a Psychotherapist with a Master’s Degree in Social Work specializing in Clinical Practice. I have been a practicing clinician for 25+ years and supervising other therapists in clinical practice for 15 years. I am Licensed and Certified in the State of New and have offices convenient to Manhattan, Westchester, Rockland County, New Jersey and Connecticut. In addition to my clinical work, I have been an Executive Coach for the past 15 years, teacher of stress management techniques, consultant to businesses and was Director of the Cross Cultural Counseling Center.
I have extensive post-graduate training in Short Term therapeutic techniques, marital and family therapy, and working with anxiety and stress related difficulties. I am certified in Hypnotherapy, Rapid Resolution Therapy, and Strategic Therapy.
My style is one of a short-term therapist who is quite active in therapy. What that means is that I ask lots of questions and often give homework in different techniques to try between sessions. I believe it is important to concentrate on the healthy parts of the individual in order to strengthen those skills which will help alleviate the pain or problem. I feel that this is the most humanistic approach to therapy and best meets the client’s immediate needs.
In my practice, I see adult individuals, couples, families and groups. During the years, I developed specialized skills in working with women’s issues such as infertility, menopausal changes, depression, relationship issues, empty nest adjustments and life changes. I also see adult males, especially those going through life changes such as termination of a job and the stresses inherent in those changes and those experiencing relationship difficulties.
I am the author of the “Tips from a Therapist™” series, have been a guest on national radio shows, considered an “expert” by Psychology Today and write articles for them.
Please visit the other pages on my site to see some of the kinds of issues I work with and feel free to either email or call if you feel that I can be of help or have questions. I look forward to hearing from you and being of help to you.
