I am a Marriage and Family Therapist, specializing in couples and relationship counseling. I maintain a private practice in Massapequa and Wantagh, NY. I have been a therapist for fifteen years and as a Marriage and Family Therapist I exclusively work with couples. I counsel people with marital and pre-marital issues. I have three areas of expertise: (1) couples and infidelity, (2) couples and addiction, and (3) bringing home your first baby.
One of the most difficult things in life is feeling stuck in a situation that we don’t like and want to change. You may have exhausted yourself trying to do things different and then eventually gave up. Each day offers us the opportunity to change and renew our commitment to growth. It is difficult to understand and accept how the choices we’ve made added up to the current situation. It is a good idea to look at the story, or the narrative we tell ourselves about the current situation. If we see ourselves as failing that will block us from succeeding. We have the power to change the story we tell ourselves. When we do this kind of work on how we view our past, we make it possible for the future to be based on positive self-assessment. This inner shift may allow us to get out of a cycle we have been stuck in. Now we can make commitments, knowing that we have done the inner work necessary to make our lives ready for change. I provide support, insight and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal and family life challenges. I integrate complementary methods and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each person. With respect and understanding, I work with each individual to help build the strengths and attain the personal growth we are committed to accomplishing.
