Yoga and Ballet

I am firm advocate of strengthening not just your mind but also your body and spirit.  At CRS, as a bonus, there are wonderful classes to join for all yoga and/or to cultivate your creative spirit via dance.  These are available at your own discretion, independently, and are provided by the Center at a separate cost and by different practitioners, and not affiliated with my practice.  Just know that these are also available to you to add and benefit your well-being!

Massage & Bodywork

CRS offers independent massage and bodywork with appointment times, private practitioners, based at their rate.  If you are interested in adding massage and body therapy, these are available at your discretion, independently and are provided by the Center at a separate cost and by a different practitioner, and are not affiliated with my practice.  I inform of these to others because they are available to you and can add and benefit your well-being. 


Due to the scope of my educational background and NY licensure, New York State prohibits me from prescribing and/or dispensing any psychotropic medications and/or other medication (medical) that you may be in need of.  If you are in need of medication and/or or would like to explore this method as an additional treatment option, I can and will be more than happy to accommodate you with a psychiatric consultation as needed and provided in a safe environment.
