About me

I am passionate about working with issues of depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders and adolescents and their families. I strongly believe that a safe, collaborative and caring therapeutic relationship is essential to effective therapy and can provide a foundation for healing and growth. Drawing from relational, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness-based, insight-oriented and family systems models, my approach is always tailored to individual client needs. I am intensively-trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT),an evidence-based practice, successful with eating disorders and other self-injurious behavior and am part of one of the few intensively-trained teams in Northern NJ.

Before being in private practice, I worked in both hospital and school settings, as well as in Battered Women's Services. I received my MSW from Fordham University. I make school-based presentations on eating disorders and relational aggression between adolescent girls and run issues groups for teenage girls.

I am a member of the NJ Eating Disorders Association, where I run monthly groups for ED clients and families. I am also a member of the American Assoc for Marital and Family Therapists, and the National Association of Social Workers, where I have contributed articles to their consumer website regarding the treatment of depression.

My Philosophy of Care

The therapy I did for myself decades ago inspired me to do this work. It is fascinating to get to know people and see both how vulnerable and resilient they can be. I could not imagine anything else feeling more meaningful to me.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

I believe most clients leave my office feeling comfortable, safe and supported and hopeful that our collaboration will help them make the changes they want to in their lives.

My Inspiration

Therapy can sound intimidating or feel scary if you've never tried it before, but the reality is that whatever is bothering you won't magically go away, but dealing with it, in a safe and sensitive environment, at an appropriate pace, will help you feel better, less alone and more in control of your life and your happiness.
