When you come to me, thinking about seeking help, you can expect certain things: I will listen to what your concerns are. Together we will determine what you want to achieve. I will help you learn and practice skills that will help you gain fulfilling life. I have worked for over thirty years with clients who have mental health and substance abuse issues, with children, adolescents and their families. I love helping people who are struggling with life challenges: overwhelming emotions, relationships, and trauma.


I work extensively with emotional dysregulation and personality disorders, especially borderline PD.


I combine a number of different psychotherapeutic approaches built around a dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) framework.


With children I take time to build trust. I utilize Play Therapy, Experiential and Expressive Arts techniques to help them open up about things that are often too hard to tell in words.


Call or email me, I offer 15 minute complimentary intake calls. Let's talk. Then you can decide if you feel I can help. Now providing IMPAIRED DRIVER ASSESSMENTS for NYS drivers and TELECOUNSELING (ONLINE VIDEO) SESSIONS.
