After 17 years in this field, I am still inspired by the integrity and courage it takes to even consider an investment in counseling or coaching. Stress can easily swamp the very best of intentions. But there are reliable ways to build better habits and better relationships.

I love helping clients turn-off their inner-critic, embrace the power of mindfulness, and create lives that feel more fulfilling and connected.

My work with clients focuses in these areas …

Habits – Let go of unhealthy relationships with food, technology, over-working, over-spending or other out-of-balance habits.

Personal Relationships – Stop power-struggling, yelling or distancing with your partner or family, and cultivate satisfying connection with loved ones.

Work Relationships – Find your authentic professional voice. Exert the influence you want in your own career and with those you manage.

Well-being – Take control of stress, reactivity and anxiety. Create a life of choices rather than “have-to’s”

I have studied classic psychological techniques as well as those applying the latest neuroscience. I use a blend of methods in my practice to help you interrupt the habits of stress that can make change so difficult.

My training includes neuroplasticity, mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic therapies.

I received my master’s degree in Applied Psychology from New York University and completed mediation training at the Columbia University School of Law. I have held numerous clinical roles, managed clinical operations for a national EAP, and have advised executives on complex employee-relations concerns at Fortune 1000 companies.
