You’ve searched and arrived at a place where you and I can begin to work together toward your goals, whatever they may be. The therapeutic relationship begins from the moment we meet, and I strive to be fully focused on you, an active listener and participant in your journey.
A good therapeutic relationship will support you in clearing the debris that may be preventing you from making good life choices, or just feeling good each day in general. Effective treatment helps you to find your own way – No one knows better than you what you need to live a fulfilling, content life.
EMDR Therapy is a powerful tool that I incorporate into treatment to facilitate a focused approach toward your personal goals. It is known to heal trauma, but is a method that works for most issues presented for therapeutic intervention.
Whether you’re here looking for a therapist, or a colleague needing EMDR Consultation, it makes sense that you’d want to know more about me.
I have an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s Degree in Social Work. I had early training as a child and family therapist at North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center in Westbury, NY, and from there developed a private practice which has continued to grow and change through the years.
Since 2001 I’ve been dedicated to honing my skills as an EMDR clinician and teacher. I am a Consultant, Facilitator and Long Island Regional Coordinator. What this means is that I work with EMDR trained therapists to deepen their skills; work at the basic trainings; and also plan informational meetings twice yearly for our local EMDR clinicians to network and experience special EMDR presentations.
Although EMDR is my expertise, you will have a traditional talk therapy experience until you and I determine whether EMDR is appropriate for you. After that, EMDR is woven through your treatment to complement the talk therapy.
