I work with individuals, couples, and families who are struggling in loud and quiet ways. I have a warm, down-to-earth style and years of experience with a range of issues including trauma, relationship and intimacy difficulties, family conflict, mood disorders, personality disorders, and emotional disturbance in children and adolescents. Recognizing that insight is sometimes not enough, my approach combines exploration with more active interventions. I have extensive training in psychodynamic, DBT, family systems, play and couples therapy techniques, and carefully tailor treatments to each patient's needs.

I am a graduate of advanced training programs in both psychodynamic and couple/family treatment, and also have learned to integrate cognitive and experiential components into my practice.
People most often contact me when a critical life event has occurred. They may be feeling anxious or depressed, or have become newly aware of a need to make changes in the way they handle their relationships, emotions, and self-esteem. For some, this is the beginning of a long journey of self-exploration. Others prefer to seek new, more effective tools to address the immediate situation. I think that a good clinician should be able to tailor the treatment to fit the needs and preferences of the client. Too often it is the other way around.

As a psychotherapist, I work with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, family conflict, relationship issues, trauma and other issues of emerging adulthood. I work collaboratively with people to create a safe, nonjudgmental and supportive environment and remove any obstacles that may be interfering with living a fulfilling and enriching life. Therapy can be a powerful force in identifying and exploring patterns, habits and relationship dynamics that are no longer serving you, and in creating positive, lasting change.

I bring an array of training and experience to my work: relational psychoanalysis, cognitive-behavioral techniques, knowledge of Buddhist and other meditation traditions and training in family systems theory and couples counseling.
There is no simple formula for helping people but there are necessary elements: an atmosphere of safety and respect, and openess to and curiosity about the uniqueness of each person. Therapy is essentially a series of conversations in which you and I create meaningful solutions to problems and difficulties in living. The opportunity provided by therapy for greater self awareness allows people to stop self defeating behavior and destructive patterns of living and to get on with making the best use of their time and talents.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in New York are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in New York then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in New York, or Child Psychologists in New York.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like New York psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in New York specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
