ABOUT ME – CLINICAL EXPERIENCE:

My formal clinical experience began as a Crisis Counselor for Project Liberty, where I counseled survivors of 9/11 and their family members.  Additionally, I worked as a psychotherapist at the same facility in their Outpatient Treatment Program / Department of Alcohol & Substance Abuse Treatment.

I am told that my reputation for honesty, sensitivity, and successful outcomes is excellent.

ABOUT ME – BUSINESS EXPERIENCE:

Along with my career as a psychotherapist and counselor, I have a long and diverse professional background in the private business sector.  This includes positions ranging from product development and buying in the fashion apparel industry to Global Sales Director and factory management in the design, development, marketing, brand building, and sales of unique housewares products.  This diverse experience has enabled me to closely interact with a wide spectrum of people from all walks of life and from all over the world.  I have great sensitivity to cultural and personality differences.  These experiences further strengthened my understanding of the human condition.  This invaluable access to the global community gave me an insight that has helped strengthen my therapy and counseling practice.

I. REGARDING “EMERGENCY” SESSIONS:
“Emergency Sessions” are referred on this site and in my practice as “Urgent Sessions” to avoid the confusion that sometimes exists between definitions in different settings and amounts different people. An “Urgent Session” might refer to a contact with the therapist that was not previously scheduled, but is agreed should occur as soon as possible. Therefore, in this context, its most clear for everyone if the word “Urgent” is utilized which avoids the implications of the word, “Emergency” which, in clinical vernacular refers to an acute crisis, danger, or safety issue.
II. REGARDING EMERGENCIES:
In the event of, but not limited to, an imminent threat, safety concern, perceived danger to yourself or others, including the desire to harm yourself and/or others, IMMEDIATELY call 911 or go to your nearest Emergency Room.
Emergency Services are equipped to provide the appropriate aid for an acute crisis. You can and should contact the therapist once the situation has been stabilized. In an emergency, every second counts.
Maintaining your safety is and continues to be my highest priority.
