Depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship issues are areas of particular interest.
Often, clients enter my practice seeking relief from painful internal states, including sadness, unshakeable anger, anxiousness, or feelings of “stuckness.” Challenging relationships and life circumstances are typically part of their struggles. As a therapist, I honor the singularity of each person’s experience in the world. I am dedicated to helping clients explore themselves truthfully, with intimate curiosity, so that they can achieve whatever change or goals are meaningful to them.

With over 30 years of private practice, I have seen major changes in people resolving problems and changing their lives for the better. You may come in with issues such as relationships difficulties, anxiety, depression, narcissism, sexual identity, coping with stress, self-sabotage, lack of confidence, problems with aging, and others, which we can deal with together. In therapy, we have an opportunity to identify repetitive patterns and assumptions that interfere with a satisfying life. I bring an analytically informed approach, while maintaining a focus on your present life and interactions, as well as using the relationship between us as a valuable source of information.

I believe that what people most need is to be heard and understood by a non-judgemental witness. Using empathy, I do my best to put myself in your shoes in order to understand you and your life situation. I then bring these feelings alive in the room so they can be addressed directly and compassionately. For many that is an unfamiliar experience. Together we can explore the roots of what's troubling you and work together to help you find new perspectives and ways of being that don't repeat the past.

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 Upper West Side, 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.
