Hello! I am happy that you are here. Counseling is a great first step to help making life changes. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York State. I have over 10 years of experience working with individuals of all ages. I have provided therapy for a wide range of issues including treating Depression, Anxiety, family and parenting difficulties, stress management and addressing life changes. I have extensive experience in the treatment of trauma including all forms of abuse.
Sometimes people come to therapy and aren't quite sure what steps they would like to take to make changes. That's ok! My goal is to help you identify the changes that need to be made and how to implement strategies to achieve those necessary changes. This can include a variety of different methods and I use a trauma-informed eclectic approach in my therapy practice. These approaches can include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and include Mindfulness Practices. Our treatment direction will focus on your needs and goals and we will create a plan to best accomplish this.
You can contact me anytime through Better Help. I check messages 2-3 times per day, every day of the week. I offer messaging, phone and video sessions as well as live chat. These can be scheduled to fit your needs. I may have availability outside of my current calendar so please contact me to discuss. I look forward to our work together!
