As a licensed New York City psychotherapist, coach and consultation therapist to individuals in entertainment, performance, wellness and a variety of professional, entrepreneurial and executive positions, I strive to help my busy clients create work and life balance, manage stress and difficult decisions, enjoy healthier relationships and find clarity of purpose with the goal of nudging them towards a sustainable life-integration of love, play and work. As a therapist with an integrative focus, I believe that sound emotional well-being is strongly influenced by healthy relationships, nutrition, exercise, sleep, creative outlets, thought pattens, self-care, spirituality and a healthy balance of work and play. I enjoy incorporating a variety of modalities into my private practice, including relaxation techniques, breathing, guided imagery, yoga philosophy along with evidence-based and traditional therapeutic treatments such as psychodynamic psychotherapy, self psychology, object relations, attachment, relational, cognitive-behavioral therapy or CBT, DBT therapy skills, Mindfulness and EMDR therapy.
I engage clients with a collaborative style, insight, curiosity, sensitivity, solution and change-oriented approaches and sometimes humor. As a former Miss USA, I am someone who understands the unique challenges, demands and struggles of gifted, creative and talented individuals. My own personal life experiences and unique training enables me to provide the mentoring, support and guidance that high-profile clients benefit from most. In addition to a special interest in celebrity mental health, I have experience working with the following concerns: anxiety, depression, multiple addictions (process & substance), recovery support, compulsive behaviors, eating disorders, Asperger's, ADHD, self-esteem issues, loneliness, isolation, developmental and event trauma resolution, spiritual concerns, loss, bereavement, transitions, life purpose, chronic illness and interpersonal and relationship conflicts. I also welcome individuals who could simply benefit from ongoing support or mentoring.
I enjoy blogging and providing relevant, helpful emotional, physical and mental health information in an effort to reach those who might not otherwise have access to psychological help, counseling or therapy. As a registered yoga therapist RYT 200 + 500 level, I enjoy writing about whatever I may stumble upon that is yoga, meditation and mindfulness related.
