Hi there! If you are reading my blog, considering having a therapy session with me, or just checking me out- you probably want to know more about who I am and what I bring to the table. Here’s a bit about me:
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Life Coach, energy healer, and spiritual counselor. And my career is my calling, not just a job. I am the creator of Modern Intuitive Therapy, a progressive counseling model that combines the absolute best tools from psychotherapy, life coaching, energy healing, science, and spirituality. Developing this healing model came as a natural bi-product of two things: I am a relentless learner who is super curious and I have a stubborn belief that all people can reach their highest selves when taught the best skills and tools (and yes, that includes even you regardless of how bad you think your issues are). As a result, we do far more than just talk about the problem in our time together. Our sessions are customized with energy healings, meditation, discussion, teaching, guided intuition, and the best tools to enable you to achieve you goals and attune with your highest self.
In my earlier years as a psychotherapist, I specialized in severe issues and trauma. As a Trauma Expert and Sexual Abuse Therapist at The Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence, I treated clients individually and led Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and PTSD groups. We were lucky enough to provide the most progressive therapy models for sexually abused, suicidal, self-harming, anxious and depressed clients for free. I also was blessed to be a psychotherapist in private practice at LIDBT, a pioneering DBT treatment center on Long Island where I specialized in working with adolescents and adults with Borderline Personality Disorder. I have also been a case manager for a Diagnostic Center in Crown Heights Brooklyn that evaluated adolescent girls who were abused in their homes. As a community organizer I have created multiple speakers bureaus and led Gay and Lesbian Youth and Substance Abusing LGBT folks to educate others.
Today, I teach people to master their energy, radically trust, reprogram subconscious blocks, and build awesome lives attuned to their highest good. .As I has evolved over the years and had so many amazing teachers and clients, I became interested in not only helping people survive, but wanted to find the keys to thriving. I learned and began to teach clients- regardless of their past issues or current goals- how to heal their energy body, reprogram their beliefs and mental patterns, connect with The Soul’s Eye view of their life challenges, use neurobiology to rewire their brains, communicate with their angels and spiritual guides, meditate, and live more fabulous lives.
I teach these skills individually in Modern Intuitive Therapy sessions, in my weekly Positive Energy groups, and during my Sunday Morning Enlightenment workshops. Recognizing that there are so many barriers to getting truly effective help for anxiety, I created The Soul Cure For Anxiety. This 11-week e-therapy program is the best alternative to in-person therapy and is the only multi-media, comprehensive alternative of its kind.
I am an avid speaker and workshop presenter. I have been teaching and speaking to groups for over 20 years. As the co-organizer of the first Women’s Wellness Day on Long Island attended by over 300 women and girls, I had a blast presenting the workshop “So you saw The Secret…Now What?” As a professional speaker, I teach the staff in School Districts, corporations, and groups how to master their energy and thoughts and choose love over fear and stress.
I like to use both humor and depth as I teach both large and small workshops about energy healing, spirituality, positive energy, mastering your mind, meditation, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), curing stress and anxiety, and aligning with your soul. Please contact me to discuss speaking opportunities at your event.
I have been featured on several radio stations, including WUSB 90.1 and 94.3 The Shark as an expert in choosing love and mastering energy.
My Blog and YouTube Videos are meant to teach and serve. All of the writing I do and videos I create are meant to teach skills, tools, beliefs, approaches, and perspectives that will immediately help you in some way. Every time I write or create a video I am thinking of clients, people like you, who need free, effective, and practical tools to achieve connection with the best version of themselves. I hope you will subscribe and comment to my blog and videos to let me know how I can help you!
More than anything, I have long and deep history in the fields of social services. I grew up in a family that established a compassionate tone about humanity and service, where my parents modeled volunteering and also fostered infants with drug-addicted mothers. As a teenager and adult, I have been a volunteer sexual assault counselor, an HIV educator, a street counselor for FROST’D helping sex workers in New York City, a community organizer around women’s and sex trafficking issues, and organized the painting of community murals. I believe human beings are amazingly resilient and that we all have a role in elevating the consciousness of the planet.
It is important to me that I am extensively trained in many healing modalities. My clients deserve the best. I learn new tools, experiment on myself, and teach what actually works. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, have my MSW from Hunter College, am a Certified Life Coach, and am trained and experienced in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Eye movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Tapping, 21st Century Energy Medicine, The Healing Code, Integrated Energy Therapy (IET), meditation, The Book of Life/Akashic Records, and The Law of Attraction.
