Getting Help

Seeking therapy for yourself, your child and/or family can be a tough decision to make.  When seeking therapy, we are often going through struggle and are experiencing a lot of different emotions.  I meet all my clients with care, compassion and respect and strive to make this process as comfortable as possible.  I honor your values and your needs and believe a strong, safe relationship is the foundation for success in therapy. This decision has the potential to bring about real and positive change in your life.  My ultimate goal for you is not only healing but setting you up to thrive as you move past therapy.

Stress

Is your child struggling with anxiety, emotion and behavior regulation, attention and focus, peer conflict or a major transition? 

Is your teen experiencing mood swings or behavioral changes? Has your teen recently experienced a difficult transition? Are they having a tough time managing stress and life responsibilities?

Are you feeling overwhelmed, sad or anxious? More moody? Have difficulty with sleep? Trouble with focus? Struggles with relationships?

Do you feel that you are having a tough time resolving conflict at home?  Are you struggling to connect and communicate with your child?  Are you feeling lost with adapting to the changes in your teen?

My Approach

I believe that the most valuable aspect of promoting change through therapy is in the relationship between the therapist and client.  I value each individual clients needs, experiences, values and wants.  I see all clients from a place of strength and resiliency and strive to enhance these innate traits that we all possess.  I believe strong in the mind-body connection and incorporate both behavioral and body-based interventions such EMDR, DBT, Somatic Therapy, CBT, Attachment-Focused Psychotherapy, Play Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Therapy.  No client is the same and each client gets a unique treatment approach, designed collaboratively with me. Every client I work with is treated with empathy, respect and unconditional positive regard.  Please contact me for your free 15-minute phone consultation to see if we would be a good fit.

About me

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker in the State of New York and I have been working with children, adolescents, young adults and families for 4+ years helping countless individuals work through some of life’s most difficult moments. I specialize in treating trauma-related issues, anxiety, depression, behavioral struggles, body image struggles, social conflict, stress management and life transitions. I am extremely skilled in building strong relationships with clients, especially those who have had difficulties in therapy before.

In the summer of 2017, our middle son began to experience anxiety which eventually led to him having extreme anxiety attacks in public.  Tami was referred to us, and very soon after beginning we knew she was the the right choice for our family.  Tami is a wonderful communicator, and took the time to explain what was happening in simple terms, helping our son build a "tool box" to deal with his feelings. Tami also took the time to involve the entire family, creating a forum for our son to explain what triggers his anxiety and how we can help him.  We have been delighted with our son's progress and are very thankful to have Tami in our lives.
