Announcement icon I will be conducting video sessions and phone sessions until further notice. Please contact me by email for more information.
Having practiced for more than 40 years in NYC, and now in White Plains, NY and Stamford, CT, I work primarily with patients suffering from panic attacks and/or other anxiety disorders and depression. These are highly treatable conditions and I see fairly rapid progress. I also teach assertiveness and communication skills to enhance relationships. Being successfully married for 47 years, I bring a wealth of personal experience to couples counseling. Therapy is centered on giving people the tools they need to move on and enjoy their lives. I prefer face to face sessions, but also do phone sessions and/or video sessions when needed.
I am a cognitive-behavioral therapist. Many of my patients left psychoanalysis because they weren't taught tools needed for change. I teach coping skills, relaxation techniques and rational thinking. I focus on the present, and am very goal oriented. With couples, I focus on conflict resolution and effective communication. Therapy is usually short term.
Having overcome panic attacks and depression myself, I am especially skilled in teaching others the techniques I have learned. Patients tell me that I understand where they are coming from and am very supportive. I am not in any networks, but I offer a sliding fee scale depending on your situation.
