Life is full of challenges, and sometimes we find ourselves feeling hopeless and trapped. Worry, fear, sadness, and doubt can feed this sense of hopelessness. If you are struggling to manage stressors in your life, and feel overwhelmed or full of worry, I am glad you are seeking out support. I am a licensed psychotherapist with over 20 years in practice. I work with people as they navigate through their struggles, helping them move towards understanding and calm, as they realize their full potential. I have found that the most effective treatments are achieved when you feel comfortable in the therapeutic setting. Therapy should be a safe space where there is a sense of openness, support, authenticity, and even a touch of humor at times! My experience has shown me that when a therapeutic relationship clicks, tremendous progress can be made. You deserve to have this source of support.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 20 years of clinical experience. After spending several years working in the business field, I decided to change my career to follow my true interests and passion. This led me to graduate school where I earned my Masters of Science in Social Work from Columbia University. I then went on to spend the next 17 years in clinical practice in New York City. Over the course of my career in NYC, I worked in hospitals - both inpatient and outpatient, and maintained a private practice. I have now moved my practice to Stamford, CT where I work with a diverse client base. Some examples of struggles that bring people to therapy with me include anxiety, depression, grief, interpersonal issues, life stage transitions, and coping with medical issues to name a few. I work in a partnership with clients to explore underlying dynamics and means of change. I utilize varied treatment approaches in my work, individualized to each unique client. It is often a collaboration of approaches such as CBT, insight-oriented work, mindfulness, and supportive therapy that concurrently work to help clients actualize their goals.
