Clinical Social Work/Therapist , MSW , LCSW

(516) 256-9909
I am a pro-active therapist. I believe that helping clients understand their problems through education and knowledge of the issues enhances the clients ablity to make informed, decisions about what to do regarding the issues they are struggling with. Whether it's helping clients change their faulty beliefs about themselves and teach them skills to attain their goals, or helping a marriage survive the chronic stress of living with a child diagnosed with a chronic physical or mental disorder, I am there to support and encourage my clients to reach their goals and "See the forest for the trees!"
Cognitive/Behavioral therapy, Psychodynamic approach,and understanding the bigger picture of the clients life. My goal is to encourage clients to be more fulfilled in their relationships, careers and family life.
Being trained in EMDR enables me to bring help to those suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder caused by sudden trauma or by chronic trauma i.e. raising a child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.It's great for career performance enhancement too (sports, acting, etc.)!
