Therapy Style

In working with me, my hope is that you will feel cared for, seen and understood. My style is warm and empathetic, but I am also very direct and solution-focused. My initial career in the theatre, ignited my interest in what both motivates and challenges us as human beings. Personal loss of great magnitude inspired a new career path for me, helping others navigate change, life transitions, and move toward personal growth and satisfaction in their lives. I love when clients gain self-awareness, improve their interpersonal relationships, reduce or eliminate stress and anxiety, and identify and actualize their goals.

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I consider my work as more than simply a job, It provides meaning and purpose to my life. On some level, it is a way of giving back for the assistance that was provided for my family and myself at a time where it was really needed many years ago.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy seeing shows, concerts and exploring the food scene in New York City. I am also a writer and speaker and part of a local author community. I love being outdoors and like being by the water and in nature in general.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

Checking in with my young adult kids now that I'm an empty nester. Connecting even for a few minutes really makes my day a little brighter.

Do you have any pets?

I have a visitor during many of my virtual sessions, a rescue dog named Peanut. He listens intently from the couch in my office, sometimes for hours. Somehow he knows to be very quiet though.
