“it’s complicated” is my cup of tea! I treat clients across the life span (birth- adulthood) specializing in complicated cases. Complicated could be defined as any of these: treatment failures, multiple or co-occurring diagnosis, intellectual disabilities or personality disorders. I believe we deserve to live with joy. I am passionate about helping those who feel that they are constantly functioning from a place of fear, suffering and stress. I prefer to utilizes a variety of modalities because I believe that one size does not fit all. Some of my favorite modalities are DBT, family systems therapy, expressive arts, ERP & EMDR.

With Family Systems being my background, some hurdles all tie together like a jigsaw puzzle in the end.
At some point in our life we hit a bump in the road. It has been my experience that with the right tools and a supportive system, the client can do extremely well in therapy. My goal is not to have the client in therapy for years to come, but rather to enable them to get over the hurdle they face and live the most productive life that they can. Most of the work I do is with either individuals or families. My training is in Family Systems and I am an ongoing participant at the Family Institute of Westchester.

My philosophy of therapy is guided by Family Systems Theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Trauma Informed Therapy.
Life can be painful yet meaningful. A glance at our lives may reveal the many reasons and paths we have taken to get to this point. Our families of origin, our socio-economic extract, and our personal journey are just some of the factors influencing our here and now. How do we put it all together? How do we summon the best of ourselves to deal with life crises and help our loved ones? Sometimes we need a caring and empathic presence to walk along difficult parts of our journey and feel that our natural sense of order is restored, so to make our lives meaningful, with purpose, and worth living. Counseling shines a light for us.

I have completed training in Bowen Family Systems, Level 1 Gottman Couple Therapy and hypnotherapy.
Life is too short to live it feeling unsatisfied, confused, depleted and or powerless. Sometimes you can manage, but other times you want to turn to someone who will provide an empathic, non-judgmental space for you to (re)connect with your deepest, most authentic self. Maybe you are in a relationship which feels stagnant, emotionally/physically disconnected or is burdened by accumulated hurts and betrayals, and you and your partner are seeking clarity, support and a new way of being either together or apart. Being skillful in relationships with others (and oneself) has become essential, and is central to our well being.

I believe that contact with a psychologist can be impactful in as little as one visit, and a variety of different strategies can be utilized once someone has begun developing insight. Often people are ready to make changes but can't get an appointment soon enough, or they aren't sure if they want to go to therapy but the process is intimidating and overwhelming. I created this teletherapy process to bridge that gap, to assist patients with discovering their needs while also giving the option to treat them with therapy virtually.

In today's society reaching out to a therapist is a great step towards future success. I have worked intensely with anxiety/depression, irregular mood, difficulty sleeping, addictions, relational problems and grief/loss among other issues for the duration of my career. So often we isolate our true selves and potential for the benefit of those around us by hiding behind the proverbial mask, or wearing the superhero cape. This leads to an internal struggle and often to issues in our personal lives along with those who are closest to us.

In the broadest terms, my practice centers on the idea of helping you to establish or restore greater authenticity--a more authentic voice, space of desire and trajectory of drive/motivation. This can be addressed through more short-term approaches that focus primarily on the present, or a deeper approach that considers and works through past experiences as they inevitably impact the present in ways not always available to consciousness. By uncovering these occluded forces left over from the past and lingering in the present, you will be able to develop broader insight and live more fully with greater intention.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Southland Park, West Palm Beach view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
