As a psychotherapist with more than three decades’ experience, I have helped many people bring positive change to their lives.

Children and Families

You love your child(ren) and your family. You want the best for them all, but what do you do when your child has issues – angry, defiant, anxious, worried, threatening self-harm, that are causing them and family members, to go off the rails? Even the most loving of families has hard times. I know, I’ve been there and have come out the other end. If your child needs to talk with someone, I have decades of success engaging with young people, finding out what’s not working and helping them and their families rebalance and get back on the rails.

Call Me and Let’s Talk.

 

 

Adults

We all have a story; it includes us, our past and present and the world of experiences we inhabit. Often people call me and say “I’m so anxious” or “I know I’m depressed.” That’s where the narrative starts, with what is and isn’t working. Listening carefully, looking for themes, using humor and reflection, is what I do. We discuss the concrete and the abstract, as well as the emotional and social issues of health, family, education, work and ambitions, belief systems, trauma and discrimination. We go wherever your story takes us. We develop goals and a sense of owning your story toward a more positive sense of yourself and your world.

Call Me and Let’s Talk.

In a scheduled 30-minute phone conversation, you talk and I listen.  By asking the right questions, I elicit what it is that makes you want to talk to someone. I have a gift for connecting with people. “You had me at 'hello' is how a client, Jackie, put it. The feeling of being in a safe space, talking to someone who can understand you, creates a sense of calm and acceptance. You might even find you enjoy a laugh or a moment of clarity. That’s not an accident. I strive to make you feel heard, so you can begin to make that change.

About Me

As an LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) and psychotherapist, I have specialized training in children and family therapy from Hunter College, New York University and the Ackerman Institute for the Family. I have three decades of practice in community settings, with a focus on public and private schools. My conviction, that all children are gifted and talented, led me to start an innovative arts and education program from scratch in my Brooklyn community. In a similar vein, I look to emphasize and uncover the strengths and talents of adults, couples and parents I work with.

I am a survivor (after 9/11 my ex-husband suffered from severe mental illness leaving me to raise and support two daughters as a single mom). Overcoming domestic tragedy proved that belief in your values, caring for your children and yourself, can bring you through.

I believe there are many ways to find deeper meaning and value in our lives. Talk therapy is one way. It is the way I choose to help the children, adults and families who come to me. My practice combines my professional and personal experiences. It is these simple but tested beliefs that I want to share with you.
