I am a highly trained, licensed psychotherapist and have been in practice for 30 years. I have treated thousands of clients using traditional talk therapy methods and have found it to be helpful to many. But after years of practicing, teaching and supervising other mental health professionals I have realized that it does not always help people 'get to' and resolve their problems. So I started exploring additional avenues of healing to add to my tool belt.
As a Motivational Coach I draw on my experience as an LCSW-R (Licensed Clinical Social Worker with the highest level of certification), a Psychoanalyst with advanced Institute training, a Certified EMDR Clinician (and EMDRIA Approved Consultant), an Emotional Freedom Techniques Practitioner and Certified Abundance Coach (trained by Carol Look, EFT Master), a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach as well as Spirit Junkie Level I Certified (trained by Gabrielle Bernstein).
In the academic track I currently hold a supervisory position at National Institute for the Psychotherapies Training Institute in both their analytic and integrative training programs where I have also served as faculty. As well I have taught at Mount Sinai Medical Center in their Continuing Education Program, teaching medical professionals how to better listen to and connect with their patients. I run an ongoing 'Emotional Freedom Techniques Study & Practice Group' for mental health professionals in NYC where I maintain my private practice, and have spoken widely in the tri-state area on EFT and Energy Psychology.
I am excited to bring my considerable skills, enthusiasm and experience to coaching and approach it through the lens of helping you break through your 'stuck points' in a focused and efficient way.
