Practice is currently full (updated 08/01/23)


All sessions are via tele-health, as this has proven to be the most convenient format for the greatest number of people following the pandemic.


I'm motivated to help people get past their pain and become who they were meant to be. Doing this requires trust, curiosity, careful listening, thoughtful feedback, and a full commitment to what is most alive in you. The reward for me is that I get to be present when the next, better, freer and more flexible version of you comes into the world. It's exciting, meaningful work.

Trauma & EMDR

Trauma shows up in some unexpected places: as anxiety, depression, obsessions, compulsions, panic attacks, substance abuse, etc. I'm interested in the big and small traumas that accumulate over time, steering the course of a human life without our full awareness. Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) and Somatic Experiencing (SE) give us "embodied" ways to work with these symptoms, creating an opportunity for permanent change.


I bring eight years' experience working in hospital-based mental health settings, both inpatient and outpatient, where I treated a broad range of mental health issues, including: crisis intervention, severe and persistent psychiatric illness, mood disorders, PTSD, family conflicts, identity and phase-of-life issues, and many others. I have been in full-time private practice since 2018, focused primarily on the treatment of trauma
and anxiety.


I have additional training / certification in these areas:


  • Bowen Family Systems Theory (Rutgers)

  • Domestic Violence and Trauma (Rutgers, VAWC)

  • EMDR (EMDRIA-trained, NJ)

  • Somatic Experiencing, SEP + Intermediate / Advanced Assistant

  • Inner Relationship Focusing

  • Certified Clinical Social Work Supervisor (NASW / NJ)
