Caring and Confidential Support
Schedule a Free Consultation
I know how hard it is for many first responders to reach out for help. The work can be very challenging and may result in emotional disconnect to continue day to day functioning. For some of you, this is not without its cost in terms of chronic stress, PTSD, depression and substance abuse. I am here to help if you have these symptoms or merely require the listening ear and safe space of someone who “gets it” and will certainly do her best to offer the supportive and trusting care that you need.
How Therapy Can Help
Some End Goals
Each person is unique and may feel that he or she might benefit from individual, couples of group therapy for a variety of needs.
Therapy offers a safe and neutral place to find help overcoming trauma or stressful experiences.
At Urim Recovery, you can also get help building resilience to future experiences, develop coping skills, repair or restore broken parts of your life or relationships.
Our work together will help you live in the present and not in your past. In our sessions I will help you understand how trauma impacts the brain and results in the discomfort many experience long after a distressing event: the flashbacks, startle response, sleep disturnbances.

Helping the Helpers
My passion for helping first responders is borne, in part, out of seeing the devastation of 9/11 in Manhattan and it’s ongoing impact on the residents and first responders living and working in New York. I’m not a first responder and only have a reported idea of what their daily life is like, but I share the heavy burden of vicarious trauma and sense of duty that keeps people dedicated to helping others. I can help first responders carry out that duty with reduced impact on their own mental health and well-being.
As part of my commitment to working with first responders specifically, I have additional speciality training and certification as a Certified First Responder Counselor that addresses in depth the culture and unique needs of first responders and law enforcement officers.
Please check our schedule for availability or call. Use the free consultation to discuss whether our services are a good fit for you. I have extended and weekend hour availability to address your unique needs.
