Story
Tagline
Founder of DiabeticTalks & "The Diabetic Diary", T1 Diabetic, Psychotherapist, Advisor for ADA
Introduction
Living life as a diabetic is a difficult task but can be managed well given the right support, both emotional and physical. Relationships become harder because of fluctuating blood sugars levels causing emotional instability and mood swings. Feeling of isolation are common in children and adults with diabetes due to labeling and feelings of guilt. 

I have been practicing psychotherapy in New York for many years and I have 35 years of managing my own Type 1 diabetes under my belt. I am here to help diabetics from preteen and adolescents to adults of all ages and the parents and families of diabetics manage the daily emotional issues and psychological challenges they face while living with diabetes.  

In exploring interpersonal and personal relationships, clients will be guided to make well informed choices around their diabetes. For parents, I help them manage the impact diabetes has on them, the family and other children in the household. 

Emotional issues will be addressed during therapy sessions. These are often overlooked or remain unattended to by other professionals. Feelings of isolation, guilt, anger, loss and others become detrimental to healthy living and increase the  risk of mismanaging diabetes. 

Through using a combination of education, client centered therapy,  cognitive-behavioral and psychoanalytical therapy, it is my hope to reduce or prevent present and future physical and psychological issues. I help my patients understand the impact diabetes plays or has played in their lives which leads to a happier and healthier you.
