Here is a list of some great places to go hiking or walking on Long Island – as well as a few other things, such as horseback-riding!
SUFFOLK FAMILY THERAPY
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW, PC
Sometimes painful life events can damage your ability to have healthy relationships, and a fulfilling life. You don’t have to be crippled by anxiety, anger, fear, shame, and intrusive negative thoughts. These symptoms can destroy relationships and isolate you, limiting your ability to feel safe and calm in any environment. Our goal is to help you move past these events, reclaim your life, and feel happy again.
Here at Suffolk Family Therapy, we help frustrated parents regain confidence in parenting and build a better understanding of their children and themselves.
Young adults often feel like they are thrown into the world. From one moment to the next they go from having life taken care of for them to endless paths, decisions and choices.
Children & Teens
Just like you, children and teens experience a range of emotions: joy, frustration, anger, grief, sadness, insecurity and more. The environment surrounding the child has an impact on these emotions.
Trauma can take many forms whether it be: witnessing/experiencing domestic violence,
sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, community violence or tragic loss of a
loved one- to name a few.
EMDR Therapy is a progressive psychotherapy tool used to enable people to heal from past trauma.
Does Any Of This Sound Familiar?

Belief in the stage theory of grief pushes the idea that bereaved individuals must undergo a specific sequence of reactions over time as the result of the death of someone who was significant to them. Not only is this inaccurate since individuals may not experience all the stages in their set order, but it also is stigmatizing to those who never experience the stages at all as they may think there is something “wrong” with them.
Most people also think when they are starting to feel better that therapy has worked and they can now stop coming. For some people this can be true. But with most of our trauma folks, “better” simply signifies not being in constant crisis mode.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD) are both neurobiological disorders that occur when someone experiences or witnesses a traumatic event. Examples include, but are not limited to, war or combat, natural disasters, physical or sexual assaults, and life-threatening accidents.
