Hello! I'm a experienced Psychotherapist (LCSW-R) and also a Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC). I have years of experience specializing in working with adults in individual and couples therapy. My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, substance abuse, trauma, relationship and self-esteem issues. Currently, I maintain an on-line private practice serving those who reside in the state of New York.
I strive to create a safe and judgement-free environment to foster a positive therapeutic relationship. I enjoy helping you define your goals, uncover barriers, and identify negative patterns. Then, we can work together to help you establish new patterns that serve you better and enhance your ability to enjoy life and reach your goals.
As a Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC), I have a greater understanding of the disease of addiction and the destructive patterns that not only impact the person struggling with addiction, but also the significant others impacted by this disease. I also work with Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA), understanding the specific challenges those who grew-up in a home where substances were abuse face.
I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in my practice, but also draw upon Acceptance and Commitment Therapy with a Psychodynamic perspective. I utilize the benefits of Mindfulness along with positive coping skills to help you manage uncomfortable feelings while encouraging positive self-care.
I look forward to speaking with you about the changes you would like to see in your life and would love to helping you get there!
