"It's time to let the BDD/OCD faulty thoughts and fears take a back seat and begin to live the life you have always envisioned."

-Robyn L. Stern-

"Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it."

-Helen Keller-

I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and therapist in Florida, New York and California, who has been practicing since 2012.  I received my Masters in Social Work from California State University, Northridge and a Masters in Counseling Education from Hunter College. I provide therapy in FL, NJ, NY and CA. I also offer coaching services remotely via phone or Skype, utilizing the same treatment modalities that I do in my individual therapy sessions.

As someone who had been affected by BDD and anxiety, I have a unique perspective and approach. I combine research-based treatment and my own successful treatment strategies and tailor them to each individual client. BDD, OCD, BFRBs and Anxiety Disorders can be life-changing and painful. However, with the right modality, including cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure response prevention, acceptance commitment therapy, habit reversal training and mindfulness, you can learn to not engage in compulsions, challenge the way you think and feel, and most importantly, come to experience a healthier and better quality of life. I am professionally trained in CBT/ERP, ACT, DBT, Habit Reversal Training and Trauma Informed Therapy practices.

In my practice, you can expect a professional who can honestly understand your daily struggles and can truly  empathize with your concerns. Together, we will work to establish a trusting and comfortable environment that will allow “you” to work on yourself and make sustainable changes.
