In understanding that individuals in pain or having a particular challenge in life may make only one attempt at reaching out for help, I strive to welcome and set at ease every one who contacts me. Most therapy patients are ordinary people that have hit a bump in the road of life and cannot get past it on their own. My commitment, through goal directed therapy, is to help those people return to their optimal level of coping with the sometimes mild, sometimes severe challenges that life brings their way and guide them back to a sense of well being.

Therapy is about telling the truth. Listening for it, discovering it, and acknowledging it with the help of someone who makes that possible through trust. It's also about growth beyond difficult times, with guidance and encouragement. Over the last 25 years, mental health studies reveal that the most significant factor in successful outcomes is the alliance between the therapist and client. Often the practitioner's credentials, methodology, and theoretical framework are secondary. I specialize in work with couples, individuals and adolescents. My credentials include the 6-year psychotherapy privilege, the highest licensing of my profession in New York State.
