Having practiced for more than 40 years in NYC, and now in White Plains, NY and Stamford, CT, I work primarily with patients suffering from panic attacks and/or other anxiety disorders and depression. These are highly treatable conditions and I see fairly rapid progress. I also teach assertiveness and communication skills to enhance relationships. Being successfully married for 47 years, I bring a wealth of personal experience to couples counseling. Therapy is centered on giving people the tools they need to move on and enjoy their lives. I prefer face to face sessions, but also do phone sessions and/or video sessions when needed.

Normal feelings of sadness, worry, fear, and anger sneak up on us. It is impossible to keep them down. Without thinking we react to life's normal problems by withdrawing, name calling, fighting, hurting ourselves or others. You can have your feelings, from the past or the present, without acting them out. When someone had a damaging childhood it doesn't go away. We repeat what was done to us unless we intervene with therapy. Remembering, talking, and feeling, this is how the wounds are healed. Then you will feel freer, lighter, more energized and have the life you deserve.
