My Philosophy: Everyone can learn a more effective way of managing their life, their job, their family. All it takes is good enough knowledge, the will to change, time, effort, practice, and encouragement. Through a combination of techniques gathered from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Short-term Psychodynamic Therapy, Mindfulness Training, Life Coaching, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Neuropsychological Rehabilitation I help individuals and groups learn, develop and practice effective strategies for engaging in the process of healthy change and growth.
For Groups: I offer Workshops, Seminars and Presentations on many subjects related to parenting, learning issues, media issues and anxiety management. My audiences include parents, teachers, peers and others wanting to make a difference in the lives of today’s youth. You can view a full listing of my presentations here. Please contact me if you are interested in having me to speak with your group or at a function.
For Individuals: My private practice specialties include:
-Coping with and managing a learning disability or neurobiological challenge such as ADD or TBI in a loved one or yourself
It’s never too late to learn skills for positive change. If you are ready to learn some new skills and take a step toward change call me at 203 216-3751. If you prefer to communicate via email rather than phone, you will acknowledge that I cannot guarantee the confidentiality of email communications. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I can help you learn skills that will make a positive difference for you and your loved ones.
