I work with individuals on issues such as Relationship Issues, Anxiety and Fears, Self Esteem, Behavioral Issues, Family Conflict, Panic Attacks, Depression, Anger Management, Self-Harming, Infidelity, Loss and Grief, Stages of Life Changes, Divorce, Parenting, Sexual Abuse, Trauma and PTSD, Obsessive Compulsive (OCD), and more.
Marriage/Couples Counseling :
I help couples with issues such as: Infidelity, Forgiveness, Loss of Connection, Communication Issues, Control, Disconnect, Loss in Income, Inequality, Sexual Frustration, and more.
I enjoy helping couples find new ways of relating to each other, determining where the glitches in their communication patterns are, finding forgiveness for past hurt, breaking down walls they’ve put up, finding compassion for one another, and ultimately helping couples reconnect after years of disconnect.
Family therapy is often an important addition to any child’s individual therapy. When children are brought in for individual counseling for behaviors such as acting out, aggression, bed wetting, disruptive behaviors in school, lying, bullying and so on, I will ask the parents to be involved in roughly a third of the sessions. Often it is not possible for all family members to attend these sessions. I am understanding that scheduling an entire family to be in one place at one time is often an impossible task. If that is the case I will continue working with the parties that can attend. Ultimately I will ask what each family is most comfortable with and will work in a way that feels right for them.
I was accepted into a two-year Art Therapy program at the New School for Social Research during my last two years of my B.A. I have found my education in this area to be extremely useful in working with clients. Working through art bypasses the difficulty many people have in putting words to what is going on inside them. Using art to commu- nicate allows one to have a more direct link between their unconscious and conscious. I have found it to be a very useful tool at different times when working with individuals, couples, and families. I incorporate art therapy into sessions only if the client is open to it. I fully acknowledge that it is not the right fit for every clients, which I always understand and respect.
