I know it's hard to find the right therapist. Finding a good fit is very important, however, going through profiles, you may not be entirely sure what you're looking for. I recognize how difficult the first step can be and I see your willingness to stick your neck out as gutsy as well as a sign of strength and resilience for which we will build upon. Good therapy reaffirms life,helps you tap into joy and find meaning and pleasure in life, it improves your relationships, and strengthens your self esteem.
Living, loving and working in NYC can be very stressful. My patients use therapy to figure out what gets in the way of finding/keeping love or meaningful friendships, what keeps them "stuck", to come up with ways to manage work stress, burn out and difficult work environments/relationships
Our therapy together will help you understand the roots of your depression & anxiety and become a safe space to try out new skills to cope and manage. In addition, I particularly like working with patients struggling w/obsessive thoughts/compulsions, grief, loss & trauma and children/siblings of those w/mental illness, post partum depression & anxiety
