I am an emotion and attitude teacher.
Emotion is a word that signifies all those things that we feel. We can’t always explain it, but our feelings are telling us something. When we feel angry, our emotions are telling us something. When we feel anxiety, our emotions are telling us something. I can help you listen to your emotions so that you can better understand what they are telling you, so that you can respond in a healthy way.
Attitude is a word that represents how we address and interact with the world. Many things can frustrate us, and cause us to feel emotions. But we always have the ability to choose the attitude we adopt and how we respond.
I teach proactive lessons and skills.
If we have a leg injury, it is important to think about both what exactly is wrong and why, and also what can be done to make it better. Both are important, and also separate.
In practicing our mental and emotional health, it is important to think about our past and present, to think about our families, jobs, and friends, but it is just as important to think about positive lessons and skills that we can use to improve ourselves. I teach both: I will help you be mindful and reflective on yourself and your life, and I will help you develop the skills and techniques to make real changes and improvements.
You have the answers already. I help you find them.
You will be surprised of how much you know already. My experience is that I know how to help you uncover that knowledge and create your own mental and emotional success.
I have over 20 years of experience as a clinician and as a supervisor of therapists. Over my years of practice, I developed a specialty in couples, families, and children, in addition to regular practice with individuals. I have a Masters degree in social work and am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I have had in-depth extensive training in various interventions helping relationships, domestic violence , and child abuse victims, as well as many anxiety and depression states.
I have led group sessions on domestic violence prevention, worked with entire families, and kept up on research regarding the most effective techniques.
But I have also held roles as a bookkeeper, waitress, a salesperson, and worked with Alzheimer’s patients in a hospital. I am a parent. I have siblings and family. I have coworkers, bosses, and subordinates. I have dealt with relationships and breakups. I have worked with hundreds of individuals of all kinds.
I am a veteran of life, and, in combination with studied practice and learned theory, I use this experience to help guide my clients in their own life journey.
