About

Having trained in several models of contemporary, evidence-based psychotherapy, I believe firmly that there is no "single" treatment that works best for everyone. Instead, I have found that therapy is most effective when it is tailored to the unique needs of each client. After all, we each have distinctive histories, biologies, identities, relationships, ambitions, etc. Given how spectacularly variable human beings are, how can anyone try to fit clients into a single psychotherapy mold? At the beginning of therapy, we will spend time becoming acquainted with one another and arriving at a shared understanding of your treatment goals.
Before becoming a psychotherapist, I worked as a New York corporate attorney for nearly a decade. Though no longer practicing, my time as a lawyer has proved essential in affording me insight into the challenges of others in highly demanding professions. I understand the limits our careers may impose, and I strive to seek practical solutions with my clients.
I am an out-of-network provider for most insurance plans, which means that you may be able to receive significant reimbursement for my services by any plan that includes out-of-network benefits. I will gladly submit all claims on your behalf at no additional cost to you.
