Counseling with Me

How Therapy Helps

     The process of therapy is like walking through a dimly lit house--our job is to feel for the light switches & discover new aspects of your interior space. 


      As we do, you'll find new ways of thinking and feeling about yourself, your relationships, & the world!

EDUCATION & TRAINING 


I received my bachelor's from Williams College and my Ph.D in Clinical Psychology from Fordham University.

I am currently the Mental Health Coordinator at Manhattan School of Music.


CLINICAL PRACTICE 


     Based in Tarrytown, NY, I'm a clinical psychologist who does relational therapy with adults and adolescents, and individuals and couples. 


My practice is geared toward helping you transform your relationships and expand your creative potential!  


SUPERVISION 


 I have a passion for supervising and enjoy working with those in the process of developing their 'therapeutic voice' and accruing licensing hours.

PERSONAL 


You'll ll find me to be thoughtful, attentive, and warm and also focused and precise in zeroing in on what you are feeling and thinking that you never quite put words to.  The  process will be fulfilling and energizing!
