Private Practice Psychotherapy

Empasis on the therapeutic relationship

I have been a therapist for over 28 years. I treat children, adolescents, adults, and families. The focus is on the strength of the therapeutic relationship. What is paramount is the ability for you to be yourself, and reveal and contemplate your difficulties in a secure and trusting environment. Your interpersonal relationship abilities will be discussed, whether in the past or present. Allowing you to grow and mature, and to be what you would like to be, in the future, is encouraged. In feeling comfortable to say everything, I will facilitate this process. In so doing, certain resistances may emerge, and these dynamics will become a part of the process, too. Presently, I am in the office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Office hours are from 12 - 9 p.m. I currently accept many third party insurance and HMO plans. I have been working as a therapist, since I received my masters degree in 1994. I have been in private practice at Commack Consultation Center, since 2001

Psychotherapy services, with an emphasis on positive, cognitive process, crystallizing your potentialities, and having a corrective emotional experience. I am dedicated to fostering personal growth and freedom, enhancing interpersonal communication, promoting emotional courage, improving coping mechanisms, and providing a nurturing and safe environment. There is great influence on the strength of the therapeutic rapport.

I accept many insurances and HMO's. I also accept out-of-network benefits on many plans. A sliding fee scale can be negotiated, if you do not have insurance. Typically my fee per session in $150.
