Supportive & Empathic Therapy
I offer individual, couples, and family therapy in my Garden City practice. My compassionate approach focuses on the goals important to you. Don't let communication issues or chronic conflict prevent you from having the life you want. We can work together to reduce stress and emotional overwhelm. Things can get better - when you're feeling that your partner doesn't understand you and they feel you don't understand them, it's time to bring in a third-party to help "translate."
If you're unsure about taking the next step, I'd encourage you to call or text me at (516) 350-0975 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can discuss any questions or concerns you have and determine if therapy would be a good fit for you at this time. You can also take a look at some of the testimonials from my former clients below.

"We are currently together for 18 years and married for 11 years with three children. We met with Meredith about two years ago. It was the best decision we made for our relationship. Although the first few sessions were difficult because we had to share our relationship issues, we worked through them with her and looked forward to meeting with her each week. She was always kind, positive, supportive and open minded. She always saw both sides and helped us to truly understand each other. She gave us helpful advice and tools to deal with conflict, which we still use today. We communicate better and resolve our arguments faster. This has created a healthier environment for our children and we are better role models for them. We are so grateful to Meredith and would recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their relationship with their spouse." - Stacy C.
"I'm so glad I decided to see Meredith. She truly understood me and offered ideas to help me through a difficult time in my relationship. My boyfriend (now husband!) was hesitant to see a therapist, but instantly felt at ease during our sessions. Meredith has a quality about her that makes you feel comfortable; more like talking to a close friend or family member. She exponentially changed the way we communicate and listen to each other. I can surely say that my relationship is better because of the time we spent with Meredith!" - Olivia T.
"Before starting therapy, I was always doubting the actual benefits of having someone putting their two cents in my life. After my partner and I tried to do things on our own and failed miserably, I decided to go to therapy as the last resort. Meredith was very attentive and she made the process very easy and comfortable; she designed exercises that pertained to our actual situation and did not take a one size fits all approach, which made us very happy. She provided an environment that forced us to talk openly about issues that plagued our relationship, no judgments or pointing fingers, unbiased and safe. On many occasions, my partner and I used the time to really let each other know how we've felt regarding situations that had happened during the course of the week that we didn't really know how to say on our own. If you are going through something with your husband/wife/girlfriend/boyfriend, Meredith is your therapist. Just be open-minded to the exercises, you may not always understand them, but they will work wonders." - Andrew R.
