One of my areas of expertise is helping shift long-standing depressions - the kind of depression that feels as if it is so much a part of you that you can't imagine ever changing.
I tailor my approach specifically to you. Together, we will work in a non-directive, supportive, and at times, gently challenging environment. Many of my clients have childhood histories of psychological abuse and toxic narcissism. Often these are childhoods that look great on the surface, but underneath, are filled with unspoken pain and cumulative neglect. In recent years I have developed new perspectives on treating these issues. Please see my website for a look at my current writings. I also work with dreams as a way of understanding and working through past dysfunctional patterns.

Within the artistic community, I focus on how a patient's creativity can assist organically in coping with anxiety and depression.
Trying to navigate life and relationships during and after a pandemic has not only affected our daily routine, we may also find ourselves confronting frustration, anxiety and depression. We may feel out of control. My clients and I create a trusting and supportive environment. As we explore your individual stories, we find a path to reframe goals and challenges as we create a new normal.

I am a psychotherapist with a wide array of experience treating adults and teens with depression, anxiety and relationship issues.
Feeling alone or disconnected despite being in a relationship or in a city of millions? Feeling unfulfilled despite having "it all" or professional success? The human experience is full of complexities and contradictions that can often disrupt our world and lead to suffering. In the midst of distress, seeking therapy is an act of courage and an investment in your wellbeing. Few things are as powerful as having a trusting and supportive environment in which you can share your inner world.

I also use EMDR as a means to address past and present traumas as well as anxiety and depression.
When starting therapy it's important to choose someone you feel comfortable with and can trust. I like to start by meeting once or twice to see if we are a good match. Together we will address the problem that brings you into therapy and establish a treatment direction designed to meet your goals. My orientation is Psychodynamic and my style is supportive, interactive and collaborative. Successful therapy can either be a short or long term process and I belive that it's important to periodically touch base to make sure that your needs are being met.

Additionally, I work with individuals who are struggling with: stress, anxiety, life transitions, grief &loss, depression, relationship issues, LGBTQ-related issues, & with artists struggling with performance anxiety.
As humans, we never stop confronting the adversities of life. Although we cannot control the ups of downs of everyday life, we can learn how to respond to and manage stress and tragedy differently than how we have done so throughout our lives in order to survive or tolerate the unbearable. Having a safe and supportive place to address past learned behaviors and coping strategies is crucial for self-healing and growth. As a nonjudgmental and empathetic therapist, I work with clients' strengths which often leaves clients feeling more empowered and with a new sense of self.

You don't want to feel beat down, let down, depressed, overwhelmed, out of control, broken or ashamed. But the daily experience of your life being undervalued by society on top of the difficulties of work, relationships, and personal struggles just seems like too much. You feel like relationships won't work, it's impossible to stop circumstances from getting you down, and you can't win for losing. You doubt who you really are. You question the strength within you, the courage you were born with, and the wisdom from those before you.

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 Midtown West, New York. 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.
