About My Clients

Children and adult clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, ADHD, autism, social issues, LGBTQ, loss/grief and cancer/trauma. Those who tend to be highly sensitive, creative, restless/energetic or shy types are examples of clients I often deal with who feel that they do not fit in or struggle with other individuals or group situations.

My Background and Approach

I've practiced Art Therapy/Psychotherapy with inpatient and outpatient pediatric and adult clients for over 26 years. My approach incorporates creative modalities such as art, sandtray, writing and drama within the therapeutic process for building self-esteem, easing anxiety, self-regulation and copying with depression, loss, trauma and disempowerment. I've had training in Reiki, Play Therapy, Sandtray and Drama Therapy. I've been on many boards holding several leadership positions, such as the New York Art Therapy Association for 18 years, receiving the Pam Clark Service Award and Honorary Life member Award. Currently I'm in my 4th year as Co-President for the SEPTA (Special Education Parent Teacher’s Association) in the Roslyn School District. I lead many presentations and workshops on many therapeutic and parenting topics in the community. You will be guided with a hands on approach to working through your struggles and goals in order to gain the control and power you deserve.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

With passion and energy I bring to you, it is my whole-hearted objective to provide professional therapeutic services to your treatment process utilizing either art, play, sand, writing and words in the hopes to offer a healthy, safe,and expressive means of communication and healing. I'm dedicated to offering a humanistic and integrative approach to meeting your unique individual needs. My approach offers a positive, creative and fun avenue to self-discovery and self-expression, while still upholding clinical and psychodynamic principles. It is also my goal to educate and inform students, professionals and other interested individuals about mental health, self-care and becoming your best unique self in the world.
