For 28 years, I have maintained a therapy practice in Montclair Center. I specialize in treating a broad spectrum of individuals, couples, groups and families. Clients typically come to therapy emotionally and spiritually broken. I help them 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 relationship and marital issues, depression, anxiety, adolescents, PTSD, LGBTQIA, family conflict, personal growth, self-esteem, gender identity, spiritual health, culture and ethnicity.
In addition, I have presented at national conferences and to general audiences on many of the above topics.
I also provide consultation 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 by gender, class, citizenship, economics, and via social and economic inequities that impact health, disease and access. I have been licensed by the Board of Psychological Examiners in the states of New Jersey and New York since the early 1990s.
