I am a licensed psychologist in New Jersey (USA) and Board Certified in Telemental Health (that is what the BC-TMH credential is after my name). I provide counseling and psychotherapy to expats and individuals in many countries via secure, encrypted video platforms that are similar to Facetime and Skype, but unlike Facetime and Skype, are confidential and protect your privacy. I have experience working with Christian, Jewish (including Orthodox), Hindu, Jain, Muslim, and Buddhist individuals and families from all over the world. I am sensitive to cultural differences and religions and continually learn about cultures and religious practices and how they affect individuals living abroad. I feel very privileged to do the work that I do and strive to help individuals, couples, and families find more balance and harmony in their lives. I am genuinely interested in the people I work with and in their well-being.
I use an integrative approach to therapy and am focused on the positives and building upon your strengths. It is a positive, optimistic and nonjudgmental orientation. I am a warm, motivated, and energetic psychotherapist.
I use a holistic approach to therapy–humans are physical, spiritual, psychological/cognitive, and emotional beings. A holistic approach considers how you are in all aspects of your life.
Goal-setting is always a collaborative effort. My approach to psychotherapy is multi-modal and integrative: We will work on coping strategies and behavioral changes, as well as develop insight and gain awareness.
I have studied and have training in many psychological treatment modalities-including: Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT), Solution Focused, Psychodynamic (Jungian, Freudian), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Couples Therapy (Gottman), Family Systems, Motivational Interviewing, Harm Reduction, Person Centered, Control Theory, and more. I have a great deal of training in Jungian therapy and psychodynamic depth psychology which can be helpful to gain insight to ourselves and what underlies long-term problematic behavior, negative patterns of interaction, and habits that have become dysfunctional. An example of this type of therapy would be dream interpretation. It’s not only fun, but very useful in learning more about oneself and for resolving long-standing issues. Understanding one’s family history and the impact it has had upon you as an individual is also helpful.
