Certified Clinical Partner Specialist
(The Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists)
"Peace: It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work.
It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart."
I am a clinically trained and experienced Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of New York since 1982.
My clients have commonly suffered from anxiety, depression, grief, childhood trauma, personality disorders (i.e. borderline, narcissistic, ocpd), addiction recovery, and the everyday issues many of us face in life.
I have years of expertise in helping betrayed partners whose relationships are in crisis due to infidelity, affairs, pornography and sex addiction.
Specifically, I am a Certified Clinical Partner Specialist (CCPS), a designation of The Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists (APSATS). As a CCPS, I have advanced training in the Multidimensional Partner Trauma Model, which provides a sound foundation for assisting betrayed partners in their healing process.
In terms of Betrayal Trauma experienced through infidelity in their relationships, I help both individuals and couples; develop recognition of triggers, learn healthy coping skills, restore sanity and trust in themselves, and explore the next steps for recovery.
I participate in ongoing clinical training, coursework and conferences. I work closely with other psychotherapists, especially Certified Sex Addiction Therapists (CSAT trained by Patrick Carnes and IITAP) and APSATS trained therapists.
I am currently a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist Candidate (CSAT).
I provide individual, couple, family, and group psycho-educational therapy.
Since physical distancing has become the new norm, I am pleased to announce all services offered are now through HIPAA-Compliant Teletherapy via ZOOM or telephone in New York State.
