I am a licensed mental health counselor. I received my graduate degree from New York University, Applied Psychology department in 2003. I began my ventures in this field at Cornell Presbyterian Hospital in NYC, interning in the behavioral health department, treating substance abusers/mentally ill. Upon my completion, I continued in this arena, and obtained employment at Richmond University Hospital, formerly known as St. Vincent's Hospital on Staten Island, NY working with individuals with addictions, chemical dependency, alcohol abuse/dependence, drug addiction/abuse, domestic violence, coping skills, relationship issues, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), depression, anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), etc..
I also had the opportunity to work with young teenagers at Girls and Boys Town, working in a non- secure detention, treating juvenile teens while they waited to either be sentenced or released home as per judge's decision. Working with adults and young adolescents provided me with much insight and knowledge treating both of the populations. I truly enjoy and love what I do and consider it an honor to have the opportunity to empower individuals to find their "greater self."
In addition to practicing therapy/counseling, I am a Certified Life Coach since 2009. Furthermore, I have expanded my expertise in Business Development. My training is with Certified Coaches Federation-The Healthy Wealthy and Wise Corporation. Furthermore, I chose to continue my education and attained a Certification as an Anger Management Specialist in 2013. I am currently approved by all courts to offer anger management classes/sessions. I am happy to offer a very unique and individually tailored anger management program. Anyone will and can benefit from this invaluable anger management service.
I like to grow as a person and as a therapist. Knowledge is power and power can be used to help those in need. Thus, I also gained a Certificate as A Divorce Mediator in 2018. During a Separation/Divorce Process it is a very delicately painful time that people can truly benefit from a smoother transition. I can help with divorce counseling, parenting plans and possible financial decisions.
I feel that I am fully equipped to provide the best treatment possible: As a Therapist, as a Coach, A Mediator and as an Anger Management Specialist .I strongly believe in self-improvement, enhancing the self to help others!
Many believe that self-help and self-improvement is about rags to riches, failure to success, and so forth, when indeed it is the beginning of a journey into self-discovery. Inside every human being is an eternal truth and a life purpose. Using our mind power is simply starting the engine on that journey of self-discovery and highest self-actualization. - Eldon Taylor
