Message to clients

I am a licensed clinical social worker practicing in New York and Connecticut for over 30 years. Having worked in private practice, family agencies, business and schools, I have had the opportunity to help many adults, families and children with different aspects of their lives.

It’s a given that life throws us curveballs at times and sometimes these challenges become overwhelming. When you feel stuck, not able to make progress in managing your problems, therapy can help. How you handle your problem can make all the difference. You learn new problem-solving strategies, focusing on what you can do rather than what you can’t do. You also learn how to take better care of yourself, building your resiliency as well as a sense of well being.


Specialties

Relationships - Significant relationships are complex and require a deep understanding of each person’s role in any interaction. The work is to learn how to communicate effectively, building a constructive and trusting connection.

Women’s health - Emotional effects of pregnancy, miscarriage, postpartum depression or coping with an illness like breast cancer. Approaching the illness in a positive, pro-active manner minimizes its negative effect and sense of shame, and increases one’s sense of mastery and well-being.

Child mental health/Parenting - Utilizing both play therapy and parent guidance as a treatment model, I address common childhood disorders including separation anxiety, sleep issues, behavioral problems, attention disorders and learning problems.

Chronic illness - In addressing one of life’s greatest challenges, one learns how to Not be defined by the illness; instead realistically and proactively address the reality of the disease. This allows for a ‘new normal’ - finding the good in one’s life.

Tinnitus retraining - Habituation to tinnitus so that tinnitus no longer controls your life.

Bereavement - Allowing oneself to mourn the loss of a loved one, facilitates the ability to come to terms with it. Expertise in complicated bereavement including untimely loss of a spouse or parent; loss of a child; child’s loss of a parent or sibling.

Career counseling - Choosing a job, career, or second career that plays to one’s strengths and interests; developing strategies to deal effectively with work-place conflicts, stress or job loss.
