There is no reason to be nervous. This is an opportunity for you to grow as an individual or couple. I have worked to make my practice a safe and comfortable environment to share and talk about what is concerning to you. I ask that clients let me know when things are not what they seem and we will talk about what we need to do to reach their goals.
Our first session with clients I offer the opportunity for you to ask me questions. It also give me the opportunity to learn about you, where you come from, what life was like growing up. I use this information to understand why you may do certain things and how they may have influenced where they are today. We will then work together to create goals and how we can make them attainable.
I grew up in New York. Knowing people of this area of the country has helped me understand issues and struggles people deal with. I look at situations systemically, looking at all the parts of an individuals life that influences them. People carry with them history and experience that guides them, but those guides are not always useful all the time.

I was trained as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I have worked with individuals, couples and the elderly. I work in private practice in New York where I live and grew up. As my second career, I bring experience as a child, mother, and wife. As a systemic thinker, I look into all facets of a persons life. There are many factors that influence people and we influence others as well. I not only look at the issue that a person or couple is struggling with, but those things that can be contributing to the issue as well.
