I am a licensed psychologist with over 20 years of experience working with people with a variety of problems. I received my Ph.D from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1997 and have been working in group practice since 2002. Prior to that I saw clients in hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living facilities, providing both individual and group psychotherapy. Currently, I work with adolescents, teens and adults, providing both individual and couples counseling. I work with people with anxiety disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks and social anxiety, as well as people with depression and those having difficulty coping with life changes.
My approach is known as cognitive-behavioral, which is focused on problem solving in the present. It is also helpful to determine what coping strategies clients have utilized in the past and whether or not these have been successful so that more successful coping skills may be developed.
