You are not alone...
We will work together to effectively understand and naturally manage your health issues by providing counseling and biofeedback in a safe and supportive environment.
My loss experience reshaped my life. I allowed my grief experience to make the changes in me that I needed to grow and thrive.
During this time, I graduated with my masters in social work from NYU and created Aimtherapies or AIM (Awareness in Motion) utilizing the creative art therapies for bereavement. Through Aim, I worked with refugee children from Sierra Leone and several organizations on Staten Island implementing bereavement programming. My current research with Susan Antelis, has brought Network Biofeedback, to develop a proposal to secure funding for a protocol that will effectively treat complicated grief.
Grief is a natural process, but it can also be painful. Biofeedback can help you reclaim the focus and energy needed to actively grieve and grow throughout your grieving process. As one who has worked through their own grief, I believe that biofeedback will be beneficial to your grieving process as it was to mine as it complements and supersedes other therapy in many cases.
We use biofeedback to experientially learn self-regulation skills that will lower stress, enhance your quality of life and create a healthy awareness of and relationship to your body. These skills will empower you to take control of grief symptoms such as Depressed Mood, Focus, and Attention as well as Sleep Issues, Panic and Anxiety.
We also address ADD in adults and children. As well as stress related issues such as High Blood Pressure, Headache and stress related Infertility.
With the assistance of your medical doctor, Biofeedback may help you to wean off medications used to treat these existing health issues.

I believe that everyone has the right to feel healthy and energetic. Stress often interferes with this; it doesn't have to be that way. A warm, professional atmosphere and a variety of bio-behavioral techniques can provide just the support necessary to help people to be the very best they can be. I am personally in recovery from a 13 year Migraine headache and anxiety condition; biofeedback and counseling helped me to put this debilitating set of symptoms into remission without the use of medications. I am a living testimonial to the effectiveness of the complementary therapeutic approach to health.
Teaching as an Adjunct Professor in the Counseling Program at Hofstra University further helps me to fulfill my life mission of training as many new therapists as possible for this good work. The Executive Office on Long
Island’s South Shore in Lynbrook, includes a Biofeedback Student Internship & Mentoring Program, Psychotherapy and an Art & Play therapy division. I am in my eleventh year as an Adjunct Professor and at Hofstra University in their Counseling Department, having previously served as an Adjunct Professor, at CW Post, LIU Department of Arts and Performing Arts.
A combination of bio-behavioral and psycho-dynamic, creative approaches are used in therapy sessions. My education and training in Biofeedback, Psychophysiology, Creative Arts Therapy and Counseling offer a broad array of tools to use in my work with people. Each person is assessed and treated based on their unique needs. I am especially interested in helping children and families.
