There are many ways to process experiences and feelings, not simply limited to talking. Integrating psychotherapy and creative expression can provide a refreshing, insightful, and effective experience in therapy. Some of my areas of focus include trauma, anxiety and depression, stress, loss and life transitions, as well as family and relationship difficulties, among others.

My approach to treatment is two fold. It involves clearing away any unresolved issues from the past that may be keeping people stuck, and working in the present to alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression, grief & loss, and/or unwanted habits and patterns that are no longer useful. We work to create new positive and healthy habits of thought, emotion and behavior, more likely to result in feeling better and seeing outcomes clients want. Many of my clients struggle at the start with not knowing what they want in their future, or feeling stuck where they are, and not being able to realize the future then know they want.

This typically means understanding and changing behavior that doesn't seem to be working for you, improving existing relationships and developing new ones, conquering fears/anxiety, reducing depression and more.
My approach to treatment is interactive and engaging. I find that clients appreciate and benefit from an active therapist that will help identify areas of difficulty and work on initiating changes rather than a passive, primarily listening approach to treatment. A comfortable fit between therapist and client is an essential part of successful work together. Consistent with that, I'm happy to do a phone consultation so you can get a sense of how I approach this process. In terms of insurance, if you have out-of-network benefits we should be able to make therapy affordable.

In my experience, people seek treatment for a wide variety of reasons such as depression, anxiety/stress, relationship problems, parenting difficulties, low self-esteem, and so on. Seeking therapy is an act of maturity and strength! It says that you recognize that you are unhappy or dissatisfied with some aspect of your life and that you ultimately want to function and feel better.

Before I came to New York, I was a lecturer in medical school and a neuroscientist. I was interested in the wonders of the brain from a scientist's point of view. My focus, over the last decade, has shifted from the brain to the mind. I think of psychoanalysis as a profound journey of understanding of oneself. Its purpose is to help people to understand feelings, behaviors, and habits that are troubling to them and to enrich their lives with new creativity, more fulfilling careers, and more meaningful relationships.
