You’ve been searching for someone who gets you-not your grandma’s therapist. My style is direct, without judgement, empathic and encouraging
Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Staten Island, NY
Although I’d be considered more integrative and holistically centerered in my therapeutic approaches, I’m a huge proponent of CBT, DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)...the latter two are offshoots of CBT. I have found these evidence-based interventions invaluable. Studies have shown that DBT actually changes the brains of individuals diagnosed with BPD and my work with CBT has shifted the core beliefs and lives of many clients.
I’m in the process of completing my certification in Deep Memory Process® and past life regression. This is a creative synthesis of present and past life regression work that draws from Freud; Reich; Psychodrama; Jung; Gestalt; Spiritual Psychology and Shamanic Healing. Distinguished Oxford scholar and Jungian analyst, Roger Woolger PhD, created DMP®. This addresses core soul wounds and transforms body, mind, emotion and spirit simultaneously. The results for clients are profound.
Emotional well being is only one side of the triangle in holistic wellness. In treatment we will look at your health as a whole: emotional, spiritual and physical. All three sides need to be in balance to experience optimal wellness and peace. Integrating traditional talk therapy, evidenced based interventions and holistic modalities such as meditation, aromatherapy, breath work and more bring healing to your journey.
If you are experiencing anxiety, panic attacks or worry, I can help you. You might feel overwhelmed or anxious about a number of issues or you might just feel stuck. Whether your anxiety stems from difficulties prioritizing your own self care or setting boundaries with others, there is HOPE. Intergrating traditional talk therapy, evidenced based treatments and holistic techniques such as meditation, breath work and aromatherapy can really shift your life. You’re also given tools and resources.
I believe working with women, young and old, is part of my sacred mission. Helping you connect to your Divine inner goddess, identifying your power, resiliency and ability to thrive in life is my ministry. The world needs women of excellence and strength and we owe it to ourselves to be nothing less than this. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. ~Marianne Williamson

I’ve worked with clients that have had dozens of therapists prior to us working together. DBT, Schema, intergrative and holistic treatments are proven interventions. YOUR pain and despair can be lessened, you ARE worth it!
