Thank you for visiting my website!

I am a clinical psychologist with more than 15 years of experience providing psychotherapy and assessment to adults of all ages, and older adolescents. If you are feeling overwhelmed and in emotional pain, you have already taken the first step towards positive change, learning new skills to manage your feelings, and self-acceptance.

I also provide effective communication training, team building and organizational consultation to corporations and health care teams. My office is located in Montclair, NJ and I consult within the NYC and NJ area.

Services Include:

  • Individual Therapy
  • Couples Counseling, Marital and Pre-marital Counseling
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) – Group DBT or individual sessions
  • Teambuilding and Organizational Consulting
  • Psychological evaluation

I am very easy to talk to. I will help you manage overwhelming emotions, communicate more effectively, and connect more deeply with others.

Call for a free 10-minute phone consultation:  973-500-4025

I specialize in helping men and women manage difficult life challenges, including:

  • Depression, anxiety and self-esteem problems
  • Emotions that feel “out of control”
  • Marital problems or Divorce
  • Loss, grief and trauma
  • Caregiving and Parenting
  • Substance abuse or impulsive behaviors
  • Suicidal thoughts

It takes courage to seek help, and I will support you throughout this process. Together we will identify where your challenges began, help you build skills to manage your distress, develop self-compassion, and feel more in control of your emotions.
