I am a New York based psychotherapist providing teletherapy. I work on a range of concerns including anxiety, depression, sexual orientation, gender identity, difficult interpersonal relationships, occupational problems, trauma and chronic illness. My training in social justice and systemic oppression are valuable when working with clients experiencing racism, homophobia, sexism, poverty and intimate partner violence. I am here to help you identify the sources of dis-ease and discomfort in your life and then assist you in responding to them.
You will find me to be empathetic and compassionate, but I will challenge you when necessary. My practice is based on a perspective of equality amongst the client and therapist. Together, with thoughtfulness, intention and humor, we will work to alleviate the concerns that are bringing you to therapy.
In addition to my private practice, I have provided psychotherapy and family counseling services in clinic settings as well as emergency psychiatric hospital based treatment and mobile crisis services. Our initial session is a chance to get to know each other; there is no fee for consultation.
