About Me
 
I am a NYS licensed psychologist living and practicing in Long Island,New York. My goal is to help people achieve personal growth by learning the skills necessary to deal and cope effectively with personal stressors, such as concerns related to relationship issues, to family ,friends and other conflicts. This is accomplished through a caring, safe and supportive relationship and by the use of various self help modalities incorporated into my treatment plans together with the patient. My approach is patient centered and I am trained in the psychodymanic ,psychoanalytic ,humanistitic, cognitive behavioral and hypnotherapy approaches.
I work with each patient individually to determine goals and set outcomes.Because I am trained in a variety of techniques ,my approach is matched to each patients' particular personality style and needs.
I am trained in the new hypnosis technique , an approach that teaches the patient to use relaxation techniques and visualization to cope with fears, anxieties,depression and other behavioral issues that may prevent the person from being satisfied with who they are .I am also a trained psychoanalyst and use a relational approach .
