I work with career-oriented individuals to resolve relationship issues, stress at home and work, as well as help parents with challenging adolescents and children. Too much responsibility and stress at home, school or workplace often leads to strained relationships, isolation, loss of motivation or debilitating fears. I help people and families who are affected by anxiety, depression, ADHD, behavior challenges at school, defiance and anger, divorce or trauma. I've worked with children, teens and young adults with emotional disturbances, behavior problems, substance abuse, self-harm, or personality development issues, and helped couples and parents sort through relationship challenges.

The things that we don't want to talk about, think about, or remember haunt us in our current lives. They can have us feeling numb and distant from people, situations, or our bodies. Whether thoughts, feelings, or events have undermined your sense of self, triggering anxiety, depression, anger, or grief, or you are struggling in your relationships or with your sexuality, you can begin to feel less perplexed and alone.

The demands of modern life increasingly necessitate managing multiple roles and stressors, while also offering numerous ways to distract and numb ourselves through technology and other outlets. It is easy to become disconnected from our relationships and ourselves, and lose sight of our values and goals. I believe that psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to slow down, examine emotional and behavioral patterns that may be ineffective, and make more conscious choices about how to live. My role as a therapist is to help you define your goals and facilitate a supportive and collaborative partnership that empowers you to achieve them.

In my Psychology Today blog, The Minute Therapist, I focus on how changing our thoughts and beliefs can help us control troubling emotions and lead more effective lives. Many people are burdened by anxiety, phobias, stress, relationship problems, depression, insomnia, anger-related issues, and sexual dysfunctions. In cognitive-behavioral therapy or CBT, we explore the cognitive and behavioral roots of these problems and help individuals develop more adaptive behaviors and ways of thinking. CBT is a time-limited approach and the most well-documented method of therapy in use today.

Life can be stressful and at times we need assistance finding balance and meaning in this often unkind world. My clients often express dissatisfaction with their image in the mirror—they feel stuck in unsatisfying careers and are struggling to determine the next step. They are either in relationships that are not mutually beneficial and are struggling to communicate effectively, or they are feeling overwhelmed with dating in this app-centric world.

After 25 years of experience, I've learned that successful psychotherapy begins with a genuine collaborative relationship and connection with my clients - one formed in an environment of trust and safety, but with enough challenge to promote change. I work from a psychodynamic and relational perspective, actively engaging with you to explore issues including relationship and career difficulties, anxiety, depression, self -esteem, as well as addictive behaviors such as eating disorders. I integrate behavioral strategies (CBT), life coaching techniques, and mindfulness practices as needed. I want my clients to know themselves better, be able to explore new options, and learn the tools needed to change.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Upper West Side, New York can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
