About

It is important to have physical and mental well-being.Therapy is a process of self discovery and healing. I believe in the process and help people understand that we do it together. It takes time to work on one's issues but I believe in the process of growth and positive change. I help people recognize that you have to love oneself , feel you deserve to be happier and do the work to make that happen.I believe that people are survivors and can overcome obstacles. I look up insurance benefits for patients and do all billing to lessen patient worry over this. I provide telehealth therapy for those who work from home or are disabled
I have multiple specialty areas of practice and a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise. I work in addictions, chronic illness, mood disorders, stress, grief, relationship issues, workplace problems, transgender to name a few. I work with individuals, couples, families and groups. I have offices in Manhattan and Queens NYC.
I create a relaxed atmosphere with my patients, believe it is important to be interactive and provide feedback in a helpful manner. I feel divulging personal information can help a patient feel connected to you as long as it is professionally relevant. Important to love one's work!
