Therapy Central NY

My Approach

I practice an Integrative model including a holistic approach to treatment, paying attention to both mind and body. Additionally, I utilize and integrate a variety of therapy styles, to give you the best support, tailored to your needs. My approach is rooted in a passion for research into what truly works. I am certified Clinical Trauma Professional and have received training in:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for depression and anxiety
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • Emotional Freedom Techniques and Tapping (EFT) for anxiety, stress management, PTSD etc.
  • Relational Life Therapy (RLT) for Couples Counseling
  • Trauma Informed Care
  • Suicide Prevention
  • Crises De-escalation
  • Polyvagal Theory
  • Person-Centered Approach
  • Sex and Gender Issues in Couples Therapy
  • Adverse Childhood Experience
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Attachment Theory
  • Post Induction Therapy (Pia Melody)
  • Somatic Experiencing (Peter Lavine)
  • Family Systems Constellations

Ultimately, my goal is to help you get back in charge of your life, give you the focus, confidence, calmness and self-sufficiency to progress and let your life flourish.

In my work with Couples I mainly use Relational Life Therapy for Couples (RLT) along with Trauma Informed Care, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Attachment Theory and Family System Constellation. As an RLT therapist I work with clients to develop deep, permanent change in themselves and their relationship.

My work style is different from a typical couple’s therapist. First of all, I often take sides when there is power imbalance, as I do not believe that all problems are an even fifty-fifty split.  Second of all, I use appropriate self-disclosure, I am honest, I am direct and I am real. Thirdly, and most importantly, I often do individual work in the presence of the partner. My goal is to help you move from trauma to healing, from disconnection to connection.
