Is your mental health keeping you from living your best life? You have come to the right place!
These are a few of my specialties
Mood & Personality Disorders
Mood disturbances such as anxiety and depression are signals that we are out of balance. Personality disorders are treatable once acknowledged with compassion. Together we will collaborate and develop healthy and effective ways that bring relief and ultimately healing. I work with anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder, and bipolar disorder.Read More
Complex Trauma & Shame
Shame and C-PTSD are at the root of all mental health issues. Both are caused by attachment traumas in early life. To transform traumatic experiences, survivors need to understand their symptoms and reactions as normal responses to abnormal events. We will collaborate on step-by-step strategies and ways to work with the symptoms that intrude on your daily activities.Read More
Love & Relationships
Having survived a tumultuous marriage to the infamous Wolf of Wall Street, I am as professionally credentialed on relationships as I am personally. I work with couples and individuals at all stages of their relationship. We will uncover your attachment pattern and relationship habits that need to shift so you can have healthy interdependent relationships.Read More
Somatic Therapy & NARM
Our identity is revealed in the body – through chronic pain, posture, gestures, movement, bodily tensions and breath. We don’t have a body we are our body. Somatic therapies allow us to approach recovery and transformation through the innate wisdom of the body. I am a trained practitioner in the Neuro-affective relational model a cutting-edge mind-body therapy.Read More
Therapy is a safe, confidential experience where you can focus on connection to yourself: together, we will explore your thoughts, emotions, relational patterns and habits.
The new insights and tools you gain through deep introspection can support your journey of re-connecting to yourself and your loved ones. We are all built for connection, health and aliveness. My mission with each patient is to help them restore connection and cultivate resilience so that they themselves can create vitality. No matter how broken we feel, there is in each of us an impulse toward healing and therapy is a resource that supports personal growth and wellbeing. There is always hope!
There are many routes to healing but working with a therapist enables you to feel supported while asking difficult questions that lead you toward your inner truth. Every therapist works differently, so it’s important to find the right fit for you.
I have been in practice since 2008 and my goals are to help people to reach their full human potential and, of course, to relieve suffering along the way. Each person is unique and thus treatment is highly individual and tailored to meet your needs and desired outcome.
My approach is interdisciplinary and integrates modalities rooted in attachment theory, neuroscience, and somatic psychotherapy. I also strive to remain trauma- and research-informed by staying up to date with the latest studies and research findings from around the world. Yet my work is radically relational, as connection is at the core of what makes us human. You can expect to be met with honesty and compassion in my office.
My practice in Glen Cove, New York services Long Island and the greater New York City area.
