Welcome to my Practice
My private practice in psychology is located in the heart of beautiful semi-rural Long Valley. My goal is to provide you and/or your family with quality services, delivered with compassion.
I provide a variety of clinical, consultation, 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 to help others live their most fulfilling lives, even during difficult times. 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.
My consultation services include time-limited sessions focused on a particular goal. This includes: Harnessing the Power of Gratitude, Finding Joy and Cultivating Happiness, Harnessing the Power of The Law of Attraction, The Power of Positive Thinking, and Creative Mindfulness Exercises. I also provide consultation services to parents, as well as parent education and support.
My community services include trainings and workshops in preschools, public and private schools, public libraries, churches, non-profit organizations, business groups, community centers, and coffee shops on a variety of topics, including empathy, fostering gratitude, coping with grief and loss, mind/body/spirit wellness, parenting, resilience, 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 being published in the Spring 2019 by Peacock Proud Press. I am currently working on my second book about finding joy in everyday living. I also coordinate a free women's walking group.
In my forensic practice, I conduct court-ordered psychological evaluations, parenting evaluations, risk assessments, expert witness testimony regarding child protection matters, 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 18 years of experience in child protection matters and have provided expert witness testimony in Bergen, Essex, Hunterdon, Hudson, Middlesex, Somerset, Passaic, and Warren counties.
