The above are my credentials, academically and professionally, allowing me to be duly licensed in multiple locations, however with that said I believe that being a true healer is more than where you went to school and who you know. I am sorry if this comes off as demeaning to others who follow an academic path. My intent is not to harm others who value these things. It is only an insight and a thoughtful conversation for you to consider other factors that help create a good healer. I have been trained by many of those academic folks in superior institutions and have done my training at well respected places and all my teachers and mentors have been very skilled professionals and amazing healers. I only want you to consider your work with me by meeting with me rather than just considering my academic qualifications. I have helped many people, but whether I can help you is if you decide to open the door to this journey and sit down on the chair and do the work with me. I will be with you to share and guide and witness and be amazed at the spectacular person that you are.
I enjoy traditional therapy and have been trained in multiple different theories and modalities. I also have been trained in other modalities that are more eclectic and alternative. I find many of these to work very well in combination with traditional psychotherapy. In the past, I was on the board of a non-profit organization in Greenwich, CT dedicated to Lyme Disease Research and was able to run a successful Lyme Disease Support group for them for many years. I also have been interviewed by local television in NYC and for several internet radio shows on various topics around mental health and Lyme disease. So what do working with NYC police mobile crisis teams, treating chemically dependent clients with auricular acupuncture for detoxification, journeying with an indigineous medicine woman, fighting for the rights of Chronic Lyme disease patients around the globe, utilizing my tribal teachings for healing and healing wounded adults effected by the traumatic effects of war, medical procedures and sexual, emotional or physical abuse and opening several successful private practices all have in common? Me. This is only a small taste for my diverse clinical experiences.
My style is very direct, compassionate and hopeful. I value clients who share with me their thoughts about what they are looking for or needing to change or grow into. I am also extremely intuitive and use this to help me with the process. I have been trained also in the school of hard knocks and had many teachers on this path having gone through many of my own personal and profound transformative initiations which I feel helps me to be more of an ally and empath with you. Many of these teachers had no formal education and were some of the most gifted healers and humans one can meet. Since my training and clinical experience has been extremely diverse it lends itself to being able to quickly identify what the underlying issues may be for you. Feel free to ask any questions you have about any of my services. I am here to serve. Have a seat.

"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
"There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right." -Martin Luther King, Jr.
" We are closer to G-d when we are asking questions than when we think we have the answers." - Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
"Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement...get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed" Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
"The essence of peace is to merge two opposites. Therefore your notions should not scare you if you see another, who absolutely opposes you, and you presume that there is no chance for peace between you two. On the same token when you see two individuals who are exactly two opposites, never say it would be impossible for them to reconcile. On the contrary, and this is the perfection of peace to make it between two opposites." - Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
"All new beginnings require that you unlock a new door." Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
