Everyone deserves to feel at home in their body. I work using an intersectional feminist perspective with a focus on trauma, gender, sexuality and wellness and specialize in working with LGBTQ+, TGNCNB and queer identified communities. Working with a therapist as you strive towards your goals of healing can be an act of liberation and a vital part of envisioning a just future for yourself and the world you live in. The mind and body are impacted when you experience stress and trauma and my approach is to address both using tools like meditation, EFT, guided visualization, and body movement.

In my 30 years of practice in NYC I've specialized in successfully treating men and the unique concerns that bring them into therapy. These include career insecurity, burnout, transitions; relationship problems; and the entire gamut of addictive behaviors (sex, porn,gambling, substances, etc.). Symptoms most often associated with these life problems include depression, anxiety, avoidance, isolation, and sexual dysfunction. Men often need encouragement by others to convince them to seek treatment because they aren't comfortable exposing their vulnerabilities. If this description sounds like you, or someone you know, please contact me for a free consultation. I can help!

Seeking therapy can be overwhelming, and also relieving; it is an act of hope. I believe that the potential for personal growth and change within all of us is enormous, and I value the opportunity to work with clients as we weave between the present and the past to explore the impact each has on the other. I help my clients examine their personal histories and uncover unconscious barriers to achieving goals. I work with clients to uncover the stories that they have told themselves or have been told to them about who they are that keep them stuck.

I role is to be a supportive agent, assisting the client to explore their past and present and to be more open about conflicts that are causing stress. Together, we explore the clients past, namely family, in order to develop a deeper understanding of their present patterns and relationships. Anxiety, low self-esteem, sexuality, work problems are all examined. As a parent who has adopted, I work with families and individuals who are concerned about adoption/foster care issues.

It is my genuine belief that the process of therapy can be broken down into the following quote by author Hannah Brencher: “We all have a bag. We all pack differently. Some of us are traveling light. Some of us are secret hoarders who’ve never parted with a memory in our lives. I think we are all called to figure out how to carry our bag to the best of our ability, how to unpack it, and how to face the mess. I think part of growing up is learning how to sit down on the floor with all your things and figuring out what to take with you and what to leave behind.”

Clients often come to me with some version of “stuckness”—whether that is a couple or family having the same fight over and over, finding oneself repeatedly in the same kinds of relationships, or feeling lost and without direction. I believe that everyone’s feelings and behaviors, as confounding as they may be on the surface, are rooted in something real and valuable. Our feelings and patterns give us important data on what we’ve needed for protection in our lives, and through a close relationship with my clients, I can be an active partner in helping them discover how to no longer have that protection keep them from what they want.
