We specialize in working with individuals wrestling with anxiety, depression , trauma, ADHD, existential exploration, grief, workplace politics, and teen angst, eating disorders, substance abuse, and identity issues.
If you are struggling in life, chances are you have a diagnosis which is termed a psychiatric disorder- but diagnoses only define the negative aspects of who you are! In fact, most "disorders" have a wealth of amazingly positive traits also associated with them. Together, you and I will work to uncover your superpowers- those positive traits that diagnoses don't cover, and which make you amazing. Some of the therapies we incorporate into our practice include art therapy, play therapy, guided visualizations and rituals, narrative therapy, practical life skills (CBT), mindfulness (DBT) and other relaxation techniques.

People experience stress, anxiety and depression not knowing exactly what's causing the problem.
Trained in short and long-term therapy, I am flexible with your goals. I help people find new solutions to on-going problems in relationships, in work, or creativity, and in navigating life transitions. My ideal client is a person who is open to change and is willing to confront what hasn't been working so that life can improve.

I work with adults of all ages, and I can be flexible with scheduling and fees. Note: I practice in two locations - NYC & Madison CT.

With greater self-understanding, we can discover and break through barriers that hold us back, find new perspectives, and achieve new goals. I work with people who are experiencing specific challenges--such as trauma or relationship issues--as well as those who suffer from anxiety, depression , feel "stuck in a rut" or are simply interested in exploring new ways to find more fulfillment in their lives.

Primarily, I see young adult females who are high functioning, and show mild to moderate anxiety and/or depression symptoms.
It is my primary goal as a therapist to help individuals establish personal and obtainable goals specific to their concerns, needs, and abilities. It is vital that in doing this, I am there as a guide and supportive figure only; their accomplishments will be of their own doing. The "game-changers" for my clients are the "AHA" moments; the moments they find themselves thinking about something differently from before. That moment can change a person, and it can change their destiny.

If you can examine feelings, take responsibility for your part of conflicts and look for ways to expand give and take with others, you will do well in therapy with me. My recent work with brain behavior therapies can help you resolve difficult and long standing sources of anxiety and depression .

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Madison. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
