Profile
“In addition to many of the more traditional methods of talk therapy (such as cognitive behavioral), I have studied a variety of treatment modalities over the years that involve various experiential methods.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My first career was in the art world, running an art consulting company in New York City. I decided in mid-life to make a change and go into the helping profession, which had always been a passion of mine. Prior to my work as a therapist, I worked in higher education administration as the Director of Disability Services at Barry University where I enjoyed working with young adults and learned a great deal about ADHD. This became a focus area for me when I later developed my full-time private practice.
What should someone know about working with you?
During your first counseling session, my focus is on understanding your concerns and therapy goals. You will have the opportunity to get to know a bit about my therapy style and determine our compatibility in working together. If you feel like we are a good fit, we can establish how often we will meet and move toward successfully achieving your therapy goals.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
In addition to many of the more traditional methods of talk therapy (such as cognitive behavioral), I have studied a variety of treatment modalities over the years that involve various experiential methods. These include hypnosis, NLP, RRT, and EPI. These methods are so effective because they target the way the brain interprets data and allow for quick and lasting change.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am very excited by the way neuroscience is being integrated into much of the "brain-changing" work being done in psychotherapy now. The idea of using neuroplasticity to activate quick and lasting change is one of the most innovative brain-changing tools being developed and what I believe to be the future of best practices in psychotherapy.
