I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in Wayne, NJ and the Director of HeartLife Holistic® LLC. As an Integrative Therapist, I provide Individual and Couples Counseling in Wayne, New Jersey.
To help my clients move away from the intensity of trauma (PTSD), I use current trauma therapies informed by neurobiology and somatic techniques. These include Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills and CranioSacral Therapy.
I also have a well-developed special focus in Perinatal Mental Health. I help women & their families with are: the emotions of pregnancy, birth and postpartum. This encompasses such issues as the fears and anxieties of pregnancy & birth, pregnancy loss, anxiety & depression, PTSD/ birth trauma, impact of sexual abuse & rape on pregnancy& birthing, abortion & post-abortion emotions, prematurity, adaptation to motherhood, and the couple’s transition to parenthood.
