I help people who are feeling as if they aren't valued.
I help people who are beginning to wonder if they even are valuable.
Even if they are married.
Especially if they are married.
I help people who have gotten used to "coping" and surviving, when something in their hearts tells them there is much more to life and that they should be thriving.
I am a New York State Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 30 years worth of experience in psychodynamic psychotherapy, and a Masters degree from NYU . I have worked in NYC, Rockland, Orange & Ulster counties and have lived in the Hudson Valley since 1986. I am also licensed as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Massachusetts.
I am in the completion phase of training in Terry Real's Relational Life Therapy (a focused, structured approach to couples' therapy that yields fast results). If you've had bad experiences with couples' therapy in the past, you aren't alone. Call me; Relational Life Therapy is different.
I am a certified Bioenergetics therapist who knows that what goes on in our psyches is also going on in our bodies. I regard the body and mind as functionally one.
As someone who was married, divorced and remarried in my fifties I have a strong appreciation for working with people in step-parenting situations and new relationships. I work to help people maximize their potential as lovers and friends. I work to help the relationships you have bring you purpose, connection and happiness. Nothing brings me more professional satisfaction that helping couples go beyond acceptance of "barely-good-enough" to break through to real intimacy.
I also help people on an individual basis, in individual therapy. I work with teenagers and young adults and have over 26 years of experience of working with them in middle schools and high schools.
I teach as an Adjunct Instructor for NYU in their MSW program in Westchester county each Spring.
I am licensed at the highest levels for clinical work in both New York and Massachusetts and am reimbursable, directly to you, by your insurance company.

To schedule an appointment call me at (845) 987-0094, or send an email to me: email@example.com. (Or you can use the Making An Appointment tab, above)
