My career has been deeply rooted in substance abuse residential treatment programs, where I have had the honor of guiding adults, adolescents, and families who are facing co-occurring disorders toward healthier and more fulfilling lives. Over the years, I've been dedicated to this field and have taken on significant responsibilities, including managing entire departments within substance abuse programs and providing invaluable clinical supervision to my team members to enhance their knowledge and skills. I've also been actively involved in program development, working to improve the services we offer.


As an approachable and accomplished mental health professional, I have the privilege of serving families here in our local Long Island community for many years. I am  a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a credential as a Substance Abuse Counselor, and I am passionate about bringing my wealth of expertise to my practice.


In my therapeutic approach, I draw upon a systemic perspective, tailoring individual, group, and family therapy sessions to align with each client's unique needs. I skillfully integrate evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Structural Family Therapy to empower my clients to make positive changes, both as individuals and within their family systems. Additionally, I have specialized training in trauma and proficiency in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which further solidifies my commitment to providing comprehensive care.


My warm and compassionate presence is something I take great pride in, as it ensures that my clients feel at ease and genuinely cared for during our sessions. I want you to know that I am here as your trusted partner on your journey to emotional well-being and personal growth.
