I believe that seeking therapy is a sign of courage and strength, not to mention motivation. As a licensed, experienced psychotherapist working with adults and children, my goal is to provide a safe, supportive environment to help clients make the connection between current symptoms and underlying causes. I will work collaboratively with you-to help you work at a comfortable pace that will help you meet your goals. Beginning therapy can be a daunting proposition and I hope you will take this important and ultimately rewarding first step and contact me for an appointment. Saturday appointments available.

Do you want to find your way through this crisis and come out stronger and even more empowered? It is possible!!! Quarantined and in "social isolation" we can go deeper within (even if we didn't want to.) We can use this opportunity to look inside and discover inner issues that keep us from being who we really are, and find the inner gifts and resources we didn't know we had, to go to the next level of our more empowered life. We can learn how to adapt successfully.

I appreciate the courage and determination one needs to begin psychotherapy and the importance of finding a therapist with whom to establish a genuine connection. With that in mind, I strive to provide an empathic, collaborative, and supportive relationship with my clients. I believe that our psychological development continues throughout life and that the process of psychotherapy provides challenging opportunities with which to identify, understand, and resolve problems. Psychotherapy has the potential to increase understanding of the powerful influences of our past and to provide insight into how and why they have an impact on our present behaviors and beliefs.

My work with clients is influenced by the well-known American Humanistic psychologist, Carl Rogers. He believed that there is a positive energy in all of us to grow, develop, and become more mature. When a person experiences unconditional acceptance and empathic understanding from another (a parent, friend or therapist), who is also experienced as genuine, human and "real," growth naturally occurs. I make every effort to be with, understand and accept, and see the positive strengths of clients. My therapeutic work has also been influenced by contemporary self psychology, intersubjectivity theory, and relational theories in psychoanalysis.

I am a training analyst and supervisor at NPAP and Blanton-Peale Institute, and a professor at CUNY. I use a psychodynamic approach allied with an interpersonal or relational orientation. I interact with clients as they come to grips with the hurtful circumstances of the past- or recent events- that have undermined self-esteem or their sense of self and resulted in poor personal choices and decision making in the present. I understand the persistence of unproductive or destructive modes of behavior, or the difficulty of seeing oneself in a new, hopeful light and acting in accord with such insight.
