Carmen works with adults, ages 18 - 65, in individual psychotherapy sessions and is committed to helping people struggling with Depression, Anxiety and Stress find ways of overcoming these struggles and live happier and more fulfilling lives.

Carmen offers an individualized approach to overcoming the struggles of each person she sees.She takes the time to learn about each person's specific needs and works in collaboration with her client's to work on the issues that they deem important and meaningful in their lives.

Carmen considers the therapeutic relationship to be one of the most important contributing factors to success in therapy and takes the time to get to know each person with a special focus on helping each and every person feel comfortable with the goal of building a trusting relationship.

Carmen considers learning and training as lifelong endeavors that she takes very seriously. She takes pride in providing her clients with the best services possible, which are both current and relevant to the people she sees and their needs.

Carmen also has a special interest in and commitment to working with First Responders and Caregivers of People with Special Needs. Carmen finds that often First Responders and Special Needs Caregivers feel alone in their struggles and find that others have difficulty understanding their particular needs. These are people who often put the needs of others before their own and may find it difficult to be the one who is being helped. But the truth is, everyone needs help and Carmen wants to provide a safe, judgement free and comfortable space where putting yourself first is not only ok but a priority. Carmen looks forward to meeting you and working with you in her Farmingdale, NY office.
