I work with adolescents, young adults, adults and couples who are motivated to explore their anxiety, depression, life transitions, career changes, relationship concerns and/or professional choices.
I have specialized expertise in working with victims of crime, trauma and interpersonal violence and an extensive background providing services to survivors of child abuse, rape/sexual assault and domestic violence. For nearly 20 years, I’ve been working with survivors of trauma and crime in hospital-based and private practice settings. I previously led New York Presbyterian's Victim Intervention Program (VIP) providing acute emergency room support, counseling, and case management services to crime and trauma victims and their families; prior to that I worked at The Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention (SAVI) Program at Mount Sinai Hospital in a similar capacity.
I maintain an office in Midland Park, NJ (Bergen County) as well as a satellite office in Manhattan conveniently located near Grand Central Station. Daytime and evening office hours are available to accommodate busy schedules.
Please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions about beginning therapy, my style or scheduling availability.
