Helping You Find Your Power

Finding Success Across Your Life Through Finding Your Authentic Self

I want to help you in the process of becoming an authentic self
who is capable of being effective in all areas of life. 

My goals for each client are

  • To improve decision making and problem-solving abilities.

  • To reduce the effects of pain and suffering.

  • To increase resilience.

My approach is to build a strong therapeutic alliance with each client that combines support and validation with skill development to help reach goals. 

I customize cognitive, social and emotional interventions to each client’s unique strengths and needs. 

My aims for each client are

  • To improve self-determination and agency.

  • To reduce non-effective, non-life-affirming behaviors.

  • To replace ineffective behaviors with more effective ones.

My clients include those working in business, healthcare, the arts, education, emerging adults, and university students. 

 I have been successful in helping male and female clients work through traumatic experiences, including sexual abuse. 

I have helped clients cope with physical and mental aspects of complex behavioral and health conditions and diseases like diabetes, cancer and physical injury.

I have used my professional framework to help clients clarify their values and to turn them into action plans that help reduce suffering and improve lives:

  • To support intrapersonal and interpersonal wellbeing, I teach mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance and relational effectiveness.

  • To help with tolerance of stress and pain, I teach and reinforce coping techniques including relaxation, distraction, and attention refocusing.

  • To help with emotion regulation, I promote cognitive restructuring, emotional processing and mood elevation and control.

  • To help with trauma, I use therapeutic imagery, graded exposure, habit modification and processing of environmental triggers.

  • To help clients develop an increase in self-control, I help them examine evidence and monitor and reinforce gains.

  • To support clients’ family, friendship, financial, scholastic and work obligations, I help weave clients into communities by engaging in the process of teaching and learning, promoting activity involvement, identifying resources, people and educational materials, and delivering parental counseling, as warranted.

Overall, I help each client become a skillful problem-solver, who is more empowered and more adept at transforming challenges into
success in the real world.

Emerging Adulthood is not an age band…It’s a state of mind.

DBT Skills Groups for Adults in NYC:

 

Emerging Adulthood is not an age band…

It’s a state of mind.

 

If you are trying to get your life in gear, you are an emerging adult.

If you have goals and ambitions and you can’t link the beginning to the end, you are an emerging an adult.

If you feel that your life seems unsettled and that you need to work on an action plan to make yourself feel more complete, you are an emerging adult.

 

There is a life out there that you want and NYC may have it to offer.  But, you may be unsure of yourself and how to build a roadmap to make your dreams a reality.

 

You can learn to build a life worth living.
