As a seasoned, innovative mental health provider, I have maintained a psychotherapy practice on Church Street in Montclair for 28 years. I specialize in treating a broad spectrum of individuals, couples, groups and families. I strive to help clients enhance their quality of life by refining goals, increasing motivation, and implementing interventions designed to build hope, happiness, patience, gratitude, self-esteem, forgiveness; promote health and wellness; and improve peak performance. I help clients bridge the gulf between who they feel they are and who they yearn to be. With the right tools and a safe, positive, nurturing, empathic environment, I believe that we all can improve our lives.
Among my areas of expertise are attachment styles, trauma, handling life transitions, stress management, coping skills, emotion regulation, financial empowerment, women's health and wellness, couples and families, conflict mediation, gay and lesbian health, spiritual health, culture and ethnicity, depression and anxiety.
In addition, I have presented at national conferences and to general audiences on many of the above topics.
I also provide consultation, supervision and psychological testing.
After completing my doctorate in clinical psychology at the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, I completed a fellowship in the Department of Psychiatry at Yale University Medical School. Following my fellowship, I worked in the Department of Epidemiology at Yale as a research assistant studying help seeking behavior. I have been licensed by the Board of Psychological Examiners in the states of New Jersey and New York since the early 1990s.
