Perhaps you've been in therapy before or you're just starting for the first time--starting can be so hard. You need to find someone where you can feel safe and comfortable. You wish to be happy, but some patterns may be holding you back from the life you want to lead. Maybe some aspects of your life are fulfilling and successful, but something still feels off. The way that you've been approaching life and relationships isn't working anymore-- you're ready to begin to learn & uncover new resources, ways of being and feel empowered making choices & decisions.

With a supportive, interpersonal approach, my goal is to guide you, but not direct you to recognize and then rise above the obstacles that prevent you from thriving in all aspects your life--in work, family & romantic relationships, creativity, and in your own self-development. Since 1996 I have had the opportunity to work with individuals and couples who have struggled with a wide variety of emotional issues. I have found that lasting change comes from discovering the underlying causes of problems, and working together to resolve and reduce your symptoms, while helping you grow towards becoming your most authentic self.

Seeking therapy can be an intimidating and overwhelming process. From acknowledging that you would like more support to searching for the right therapist for you, it takes time, effort, and courage to face your challenges and risk vulnerability. That is why I aim to create a warm, welcoming, and non-judgmental space where you experience trust, safety, and comfort to bring your authentic self into the room. To be vulnerable and open as your true self without fear of judgment is to move towards freedom and expansion.

No matter how fortunate you may be, still human life is difficult. Despite your best efforts, at times life's stresses can be too much: you may be overwhelmed. Hurt, fear, guilt, anger, shame, grief: feeling bad can alert you to where the trouble lies, or add to your emotional burdens. Confusion, isolation, loneliness, restlessness, worry, despair, or addictive attempts to find relief - all of these painful states are attempts to ward off problems or fix what's wrong, but they can also make things worse.

**My practice is currently full** A person's trajectory in life can be offset by a history of stress, strain and compromises. Therapy can re-orient a person to their true needs, allowing them to become more effective in many aspects of their lives: at work, home, and in relationships. I offer a collaborative, safe, and respectful environment where conversations unfold at their own pace. It is important that a person trusts the therapist who they work with and is able to discuss their problems openly. The right "fit" between therapist and patient can be determined best after an initial consultation.

I have extensive experience working with patients and families during times of illness and at end of life. As a medical social worker, I have also been supporting medical professionals during this pandemic. My expertise extends into grief and bereavement. These can be defined and understood in many ways. Some examples are found in my work with caregivers who have lost loved ones, while other forms of grief can mean grieving our old way of life.

If you are an adolescent or adult experiencing a life transition, spiritual and/or relationship crisis and are tired of just talking about or analyzing your issues, body-centered psychotherapy can help. You will learn to study how you organize particular present experience like a tension pattern,habitual gesture, feeling or image. Since most behavior is automatic and based on habits and core material, body psychotherapy helps you recognize and work with these core patterns mentally, emotionally and physically. You will deepen your capacity for self understanding, free yourself from limited habitual patterns, communicate more effectively and create more satisfying options.

An artist who never experienced being loved by a woman may look for a different therapy than someone who, after the collapse of the Twin Towers, has experienced crises of panic and is unable to travel the subway. Somebody may want to stop using drugs and alcohol, but may also be interested in finding a spiritual path. Most frequently, people do not know what they want from therapy. Finding out is part of it. Some go to therapy to solve a problem, and some to grow and look for the meaning of life, while others have both reasons.

You're thriving professionally. Yet your anxiety is off the charts. You feel weighed down by bodily sensations or emotions that seem to come out of nowhere. You’re particularly anxious around loved ones. In contrast to your values, you prioritize work over time with family. A part of you suspects something from the past is playing a role in this daily struggle. Sometimes you imagine utter catastrophe: your hypertension will lead to a stroke and devastate your earning power, or you'll explode in anger at the people closest to you. Whatever the imagined fear, you're convinced that ultimately your loved ones will leave you.

These elements empower individuals to take ownership of how they choose to create their lives and to find greater wellbeing and fulfillment. We often do not realize that the very habits and behaviors that cause us to feel stuck or block us from having what we want were necessary tools for survival at some point in our lives. Understanding such patterns is an important step.

Finding the right person who is able to attune to and respond to your needs is an essential part of this journey.
