One of the main goals of my psychotherapy practice is to help people develop a deeper understanding of their connection to SELF, the world and to others as well. A successful psychotherapy experience strengthens emotional understanding. It is a process that fosters healing, wisdom and generates empathy. It brings renewed emotional, spiritual and physical health to each individual person. 

My desire is to convey my compassion to each of my clients, while using my 25 years of experience and skills as a therapist to heal the heart, mind and body, ensuring that each person is given the gift of wholeness to live a happier life and to share this with their family, friends and the world at large. 


Approach & Specialties

My approach is extraordinarily compassionate and non-judgmental while at the same time solution and goal-oriented. I believe knowledge is power, and teach my clients effective, evidence-based psychological skills moving them toward healing, success and independence.

I firmly believe we must look inward and gain enlightenment in order to change outwardly. I specialize in Internal Family Systems approach (IFS), developed by Richard Schwartz, Ph.D. This enhanced mindfulness-based approach is particularly effective for individuals, couples and/or families struggling with:

  • Relationship difficulties
  • Coping with change and loss
  • Healing trauma
  • Management and leadership in business
  • Self- love and kindness
  • Self-judgment and worrying
  • Sexual difficulties
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Addictive and compulsive behavior

Welcome to my practice!

For more than 25 years, I have had the privilege of treating people from all walks of life who have had a variety of needs. Individuals and couples who are struggling and are desirous of greater peace and harmony in their relationship, families seeking greater interpersonal harmony, using specialized conflict resolution treatment, along with children who may be having difficulty in school or who may be suffering from certain forms of learning challenges or bullying, or adolescents who may be experiencing emotional turmoil or lack of direction. 

I obtained my Master's Degree in Social Work from Adelphi University and after 6 years of supervised clinical experience I received my New York State R credentials. My ability as a therapist extends across several treatment disciplines. In addition to my continuing education, I am trained and certified in:

  • Gestalt Therapy with Dr. Jay Early of the Long Island Therapy Center
  • Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with the Albert Ellis Institute
  • Brief Therapy (hypnotherapy) using Milton H. Erickson approach
  • IFS (Internal Family System) Therapy
  • Child Care Specialist with the Nassau County Department of Social Services
  • EEG/EMG Biofeedback Practitioner
  • Health Coach with Dr. Eric Berg
