In our therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behavior. I will work with you to help you understand your reactions and provide valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles.
Depression and anxiety often feel like bullies, making us think that we cannot cope. The sadness, desperation, lack of drive, and often endless comparisons to others or the way we used to be seem to instill every moment of life with heaviness and pain.
Our work together will help you become empowered to face the day or night ahead of you and provide you with life-changing skills that will enable you to transcend endless cycles of fear, worry, and sadness.
You can now make a life-changing first step. With kindness and compassion for ourselves, we will learn to recognize when our thoughts seem to turn against us and learn how to walk into life’s challenges with strength and self-respect.
You can feel happy and fulfilled again! You can learn to find the motivation to do what matters most to you and live the life you want most!
Couples often feel so rejected by each other and unloved. They wonder where the feelings, respect, and sense of wholesome togetherness have gone.
So often, people say that they just don’t feel important anymore to their spouses…
They yearn and wish for closeness, contentment, and emotional connectedness. Extensively trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), I aid couples in reconnecting through bonds of deepest meaning and recreating a strong sense of togetherness. Understanding your partner’s deepest needs-having your partner understand yours- need not be an elusive dream!
Together, we can create safety and nurturing that transform your marriage into the oasis you crave. Your marriage need not be a source of frustration and pain! You and your significant other can learn to love, laugh, and invigorate your marriage through greater connectivity and mutual discovery.
Raising robust, successful children today is hard! Are you spiraling into frequent altercations with your children or having trouble loving or connecting with your child, teen, or adult offspring? Family therapy can be a wonderful place to explore, rediscover, and reestablish the bonds of love and acceptance with those that matter most.
I believe that therapy is the place for blossoming and becoming. It’s a place for self-discovery and growing into the person you want to be.
I have worked in various therapeutic and educational settings, gaining many experiences with different populations.
In addition to my clinical experience, I have worked in the field of education for over twenty years in both educational and administrative positions in the US and abroad.
After graduating with a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2013, my early clinical experiences were formed at the Family Institute of Neve Yerushalayim in Jerusalem, Israel, where I served as a staff therapist and a volunteer on their domestic violence unit.
I worked for several years at Ohel Children’s Home and Family Services outpatient mental health clinic as well as a foster care case planner aiding children and their families under the administration of Child Protective Services (ACS).
In addition to outpatient settings, I served as an Intensive In Community (IIC) service provider, where I provided individual and family therapy in the homes of families undergoing stress or trauma.
I have been an associate therapist in private practice settings throughout the tri-state area for the last several years.
I believe that through guided exploration of one’s past experiences and proactively engaging one’s future, one can unlock the gifts of self-actualization and meaningful living.
