Get to Know Me
Exceeding Expectations One Patient at a Time
I have been in private practice in New Jersey since 2015, treating individuals and couples in relational and psychodynamic psychotherapy. I completed my MSW at NYU and my Ph.D. at Walden University. I trained as a relational couple and family therapist at the Ackerman Insitute for Family Therapy in NYC. primary area of interest is treating adults with childhood trauma.
Therapy is a leap of faith. The higher the level of a therapist’s training and personal work, the better your chances are of getting the help
you need. When a therapist (like me) has had diverse training, then the help that you will receive will focus on deeper issues. This means that if you have been feeling depressed for a long time (for example), I am more likely to wonder whether you missed out on something important that needs attention now.
The experience of talking with a professional is very private and personal. It helps you to understand feelings and behaviors that just don’t seem to make sense. This helps open emotional doors that can lead to personal growth. It is a far different experience from talking with friends or family, who frequently do not know what to say when someone is hurting.
