"Being human can be as amazing and wonderful as it can be challenging and confusing. Navigating personal burdens such as depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, addictions, and relationship strains can be especially difficult when feeling stuck, alone, or misunderstood. I believe that upon looking deeply into these challenges, we actually stand to gain a great deal from them, and that having the right support in doing so can really make a difference. As a therapist at Embodied Mind NYC, I am passionate about holding space for people to explore their full range of human experience and live more fulfilling lives."

"Therapy offers a new way of being in one’s own skin. There is no other experience quite like it—two people in deep inquiry into how you can move through the world in the way you most want. I’ll companion you in thinking and feeling our way through the inner thickets of what most confounds you. We’ll clarify what’s most important to you in this life, understand exactly how you get stuck, and locate inner and outer resources. If feelings tend to overcome you, we’ll hone skills to tolerate and make good use of them. If your responses to pain tend to multiply your problems, we’ll find methods that truly serve you in the now. "

"An artist who never experienced being loved by a woman may look for a different therapy than someone who, after the collapse of the Twin Towers, has experienced crises of panic and is unable to travel the subway. Somebody may want to stop using drugs and alcohol, but may also be interested in finding a spiritual path. Most frequently, people do not know what they want from therapy. Finding out is part of it. Some go to therapy to solve a problem, and some to grow and look for the meaning of life, while others have both reasons."

"No matter how fortunate you may be, still human life is difficult. Despite your best efforts, at times life's stresses can be too much: you may be overwhelmed. Hurt, fear, guilt, anger, shame, grief: feeling bad can alert you to where the trouble lies, or add to your emotional burdens. Confusion, isolation, loneliness, restlessness, worry, despair, or addictive attempts to find relief - all of these painful states are attempts to ward off problems or fix what's wrong, but they can also make things worse."

"(Un)fun therapy fact: most people assiduously avoid what they need most. As humans we want deep, authentic relationships. But what do most of us do about that? Some binge on social media, compare our real lives to other people's illusory ones, and feel like pariahs. Some of us are out socializing up a storm, but too often end up surrounded by people we don't feel connected to, telling zero of them the truth about what's going on inside our heads. None of us is alone in feeling alone, but all of us secretly think that we are. If we want to break out of interpersonal jail, we need to remember how to talk to--and listen to--each other."
