I am a NYS Licensed Mental Health Counselor and NYS Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with 25+ years of experience working with individuals, couples, and groups. I am trained in Ericksonian hypnotherapy which I use along with guided imagery, and techniques for developing hopefulness. I also use more traditional insight modes of treatment.
My areas of expertise are: self-esteem work, depression, anxiety, stress, pain management, couples communication and relationship pain. My work is nonjudgmental and ego-enhancing. I use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, CBT/DBT, and EMDR among other methodologies. I derive tremendous satisfaction from seeing people grow and helping marriages thrive.
I enjoy working with all kinds of people with a wide variety of issues and backgrounds. I particularly enjoy working with artistically creative people and spiritually sensitive individuals. I am willing to fill out any insurance forms for you to file with your insurance company.
