If you live outside the New York or New Jersey area, I offer private consultation services by phone or Zoom. Consultation is different from the deeper, individual therapy. I do not treat clinical levels of mental health symptoms in this capacity.

Consultation can be helpful for working on a specific problem or for creating a concrete plan to move forward.

Consultation services can be short-term, longer-term, or ongoing, and can be helpful for working on a specific problem or for creating a concrete plan to move forward on a more complex issue.  I am available for consultation for the following areas:

  • Postpartum Mental Health Care Plan

  • Parenting Children with Anxiety

  • Meeting a specific career, relationship, life goal 

  • Family Relational Issues

  • Creating a Healthier Lifestyle 

  • Personal Development

  • Life Transitions 

  • Stress management
