Welcome to my Practice

My private practice in psychology is located in the heart of beautiful semi-rural Long Valley.  For 14 years, my practice was previously located in the center of Liberty Corner (Basking Ridge).  My goal is to provide you and/or your family with quality services, delivered with compassion.

I provide a variety of clinical, forensic, and community services. In my clinical practice, I provide counseling services to individuals (preschool through adult), utilizing cognitive/behavioral, interpersonal, humanistic, and psychodynamic techniques, tailored to meet client’s individual and unique needs. I do so with compassion, care, understanding, and acceptance. My goal is to draw upon my clients’ strengths and foster new coping skills. I also provide consultation services to parents, as well as parent education and support.

I have extensive training and experience with preschoolers and young children. I also enjoy working with adults addressing issues related to grief and loss, coping with illness, family conflict, parenting issues, women's issues, family/marital issues, and support through crisis and change.

In my forensic practice, I conduct court-ordered psychological evaluations, parenting evaluations, expert witness testimony regarding child protection matters, custody/parenting time evaluations, and consultation to other professionals. My clients have included parents, private attorneys, Law Guardians, and the State of New Jersey. I have specialized training and 17 years of experience in child protection matters and have provided expert witness testimony in Bergen, Essex, Hunterdon, Hudson, Middlesex, Somerset, Passaic, and Warren counties.

My community services include coordinating a free weekly women’s walking group.  I also provide trainings and workshops in preschools, public and private schools, public libraries, churches, non-profit organizations,  community centers, and coffee shops on a variety of topics,  including empathy, fostering gratitude, coping with grief and loss, mind/body/spirit wellness, parenting, social media, mental health, mindfulness, communication, and fostering positive family relationships among others.  I enjoy writing about parenting, psychology, and life, and have had articles published in national magazines/journals.  My inspirational memoir is scheduled to be published in 2018.
