Being married for 37 years and counting, I am very passionate about marriage, family and relationships. I believe relationships and learning the many facets of another can be an ever evolving process. We live, we learn and we grow. Love doesn’t have to fade, if you still believe in one another.
Depression often causes people to feel sad, empty, or hopeless, and can cause a lack of interest in life. It can also affect a person's thinking patterns and physical health.
Anxiety can mean nervousness, worry, or self-doubt. Anxiety disorder is a mental health disorder that entails excessive, repeated bouts of worry, anxiety, and/or fear.
It's normal to experience anger at times, but for some, it becomes so frequent, intense, or difficult to control that it negatively affects their life. Anger management is a structured therapeutic approach toward reducing one’s anger to a point where more appropriate coping and/or conflict management skills are used. Beliefs and thoughts leading toward anger outbursts are explored while healthy coping and interpersonal skills are put into practice.
Coping skills are tools and techniques one can learn, practice, and use to handle difficult emotions, decrease stress, and establish or maintain a sense of internal order.

I have 15 years of therapy experience. I have worked across all areas of the NYS mental health system, i.e., Inpatient, outpatient clinic and day treatment program for the severe and persistently mentally ill population. I have been doing private practice work for the past 10 years working with clients to develop coping skills for everyday life stressors. Some of my best work has been done with couples and adolescents due to my warm and compassionate counseling style.
