Meliora Counseling and Psychotherapy provides counseling to individuals & couples, evidence-based approaches, and Telehealth services.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor in White Plains, NY
I offer expertise in family systems and relationship dynamics, but, more importantly, a genuine love of working with couples. Areas that I address include; infidelity, communication/attachment styles, trauma/abuse, and non-monogamous relationships.
While I tend to utilize a psychoanalytic/psychodynamic approach, this simply means that I do not provide surface-level therapy. My intent is to help clients understand more about themselves and the patterns of behavior they exhibit, because this kind of self-awareness is often the key to long-term success.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an evidence-based practice that consistently produces positive results in my work with clients. I find it is one of the most effective therapeutic approaches across demographics and diagnoses.
Anxiety is one of the most common maladies that I see. It often presents as a symptom of deeper, psychological issues, but can also be caused by short-term events or life changes. Together, we will work to discover the root cause of your anxiety, and develop skills that can effectively manage triggers.
Depression is an insidious mental health concern, because the very nature of it discourages individuals to take action by seeking treatment. If you are searching for a therapist, that is a great first step!
While counseling can result in improved communication, a greater depth of mutual understanding, and a renewed appreciation for one another, ultimately, the outcomes of therapy are unique to each couple. Your goals are my goals, and I endeavor to provide autonomy to my clients throughout the therapeutic process.
