Experience and Credentials
I have over 17 years of experience as a licensed psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, administrator, speaker, and author. I was awarded my post-graduate degree from Fordham University and hold a New York State license in clinical social work.
In addition to traditional psychotherapy, I worked with special needs children for 10 years as a play therapist and family counselor. My qualifications also include 2 certifications in hypnotherapy, advanced certification in hypnoanalysis and regression therapy as well as certificates in Broadband for the Brain, Warriors, Settlers, and Nomads, Relationship Intervention, and Ego State Therapy. I also have training in training in Psychosexual Dysfunction and cognitive behavioral techniques.
I am certified in BrainWorking Recursive Technique (BWRT) for general psychopathology as well as the psychology of identity and behavior. I am a founding member of the British BrainWorking Research Society. My qualifications in BWRT have awarded me the opportunity to mentor BWRT trainees and practitioners in addition to administering certification assessments.
With over 13 years of experience, I am certified in tinnitus treatment and co-author of "Tinnitus: Turning the Volume Down (Revised and Expanded)". I have worked with those suffering from tinnitus (sometimes misspelled tinitus, tinitis, or tinnitis and also referred to as ringing of the ears or ringing in the ears) throughout the United States, Canada, South America, United Kingdom, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, and Germany. I have presented and have been interviewed on the topic of treating tinnitus effectively in the U.S., England, and Austria.
Why I Love What I Do
I enjoy the process of working together. As we put the pieces of the puzzle together, it only encourages growth and insight. I know I will always learn from whoever I work with while I work diligently to help improve their lives. We all come to this point with a set of different experiences and genetic memory. As we explore those experiences that influence who you are, I tailor treatment to what works best for you. The beauty in being human is that we can have similar stories or feelings and yet still be so unique in our behavior and perception. I look forward to getting to know you so we can make long lasting positive changes.
