My background, experience, education, and licensing credentials enable me to provide a unique perspective to my clients. I have been a practicing therapist for many years after receiving my license as a mental health counselor first in New York and then in Florida. A former faculty member for Bay State Junior College in Massachusetts, and former adjunct professor at The New School, SUNY Purchase in New York and New York University, where I earned my Master’s in Counseling Psychology, I am committed to providing therapy and coaching to individual clients, couples, and familiies. My goal is to actively help my clients gain insight, tools and strategies for making the changes that they want in their lives, relationships and careers. My clients have become better able to cope with situations, feel better about themselves and their decisions, make behavioral changes, and take actions to get “unstuck”. In addition to my training and education as a therapist, I am a certified collaborative divorce coach through the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and a certified hypnotherapist. My work with couples includes knowledge and experience using Imago and Emotionally Focused Therapy. I integrate multiple therapeutic modalities in my practice including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, with a strong leaning towards Postive Psychology.
My career has also included managing and consulting in the field of Human Resources for large and small firms in diverse industries, executive coaching, career coaching and outplacement. In that capacity I have used my knowledge of organizational change, conflict resolution, employee relations, training, and coaching to improve organizational climates and individual effectiveness and success. I established 4 human resources functions for companies, began my career at Chase and have worked for or consulted to companies in most industries including biotech, healthcare, technology, education, non-profits and financial services. My combined experience provides me with the ability to help my clients who need career coaching or who are in a career transition.
I am a member of numerous professional associations including the American Counseling Association (ACA), The Futurist Association and The Mental Health Counseling Association (MHCA) and local Human Resources Associations.
My specialties include:
Life Transitions, Individual Counseling, Social Skills, Social Anxiety, Conflict Resolution,Communications, Marital and Relationship Counseling, Pre-During-Post Divorce Counseling, Career Counseling, and Parenting Counseling, Coaching, as well as HR Consulting
