Profile
“I am a practicing Jew and use the core values of my religion to treat everyone respectfully, regardless of their cultural, religious, or racial background.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
From the time that I entered college, I knew that I wanted to work as a helping professional. My calm personality and ability to manage everyday and emergent stressors serves me well as a psychologist. Since becoming licensed in 1995, I have always worked in a private practice setting. I have completed level 2 Gottman training to help clients with relationship issues. Additionally, I have considerable experience in the area of psychological testing and use this experience to help parents and children navigate school issues.
What should someone know about working with you?
I value setting goals with my clients and helping them to achieve those goals. Often, the therapy process includes helping improve diet, exercise, and sleep habits. I use our sessions to facilitate a different understanding of a client’s situation in order to gain insight into making changes and reaching goals.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I am a practicing Jew and use the core values of my religion to treat everyone respectfully, regardless of their cultural, religious, or racial background. I also value community and try to facilitate connection for my clients.
