I am the lead clinician/owner/founder of Life Enhancement Psychotherapy. Our goal is simply to assist you in improving the essential aspects of your life. In addition to psychotherapy, we provide coaching and integrative wellness practices. We emphasize empirically supported therapies for adults, couples, children, adolescents, and families.
My work, in particular, draws from traditional talk therapies such as CBT as well as newer neuropsychological and somatic (body-based) interventions. I am highly interactive and goal oriented in my approach to psychotherapy. My work is influenced by years of collegiate teaching of courses related to clinical psychology (such as Psychological Trauma, Abnormal Psychology, Personality, etc.).
Other members of our team: Yelena Zelikman is our psychoanalytic psychotherapist. She specializes identifying and resolving problems that leave you feeling “stuck” or unable to improve the quality of your life. Rachel Mondrick’s specialty is Internal Family Systems (IFS) which is used to help you examine those aspects of self that create a sense unease or anxiety in response to conflicting needs or unresolved emotional pain. Christine Aufiero is our Creative Arts specialist. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be artistically talented to work with Christine! Instead, she integrates are into her work to assist you with identifying and exploring thoughts and feelings that are unrecognized, destructive, painful or hard to put into words. (learn more about our team by visiting https://www.life-enhance-therapy.com/AboutUs.en.html).
Not sure who is a good match for you? No worries! We function as a collaborative team. This means that each of our clients has access to the entire team. We meet regularly to discuss our interventions and receive input derived from each clinician’s special area of focus.
Holistic Care: Years of experience and academic study make it clear that traditional talk therapy alone is insufficient for addressing some problems. For other problems and fostering personal growth, better results are obtained when clinicians extend their work beyond talking. We combine traditional psychotherapy with “bottom-up” (body based) work, neuopsychologically oriented therapies (like EMDR), nutritional considerations, and other holistic supports. We are particularly proud of Life Enhancement Essentials (LE Essentials). This is our proprietary line of essential oil blends created in 2017 by our clinical team and approved by a credentialed aromatherapist. We use LE Essentials in our work with clients to help with regaining grounding during moments of emotional distress (Take Control synergy), to uplift one’s mood (ML Smile), to replace anxiety with a sense of calmness (Exhale) and to promote relaxation (Letting Go). (You can learn more by visiting www.LE-Essentials.com.) We have received remarkably positive feedback from clients regarding LE Essentials and other non-traditional types of care we provide.
In essence, we strive to provide uniquely effective care as we partner with each of our clients. As we strive to create positive change, clients learn about themselves and key variables that contribute to their personality, functioning in relationships and broader behaviors. When they leave our care, a large majority of clients report knowing themselves better and report that they feel better equipped to navigate life’s inevitable challenges. We invite you to partner with us. As stated in our tag line, we will do our very best to help you excel into a more joyful and abundant life!
