A good therapist will not only use sessions to help you access your emotional intelligence, but will also help you become your own therapist so you can continue the process on your own. With that in mind, I customize each therapy to the individual with an emphasis on a solid working relationship, clear goals and a specific focus. I treat a range of issues including anxiety, depressive states, substance use issues, addictive sexual behavior, life transitions, challenging work environments and relationship conflicts among others.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist seeing clients at my private practice in Manhattan. For the past 11 years, I have worked with individuals and couples unsatisfied with their current situation and wanting more from life - more happiness, connection, and success. Though I am trained in providing long-term psychotherapy, I have adapted my techniques to maximize the results of shorter-term treatment. While many clients want the intensive experience of longer-term treatment, I recognize that this is not always possible due to the constraints of time and money.

How can we make deeper changes when we are trying to manage unusual pain, or just handle our ordinary suffering? When we feel safe and accepted as we are, we can challenge ourselves to grow, and to encounter others in an authentic way. I aim to create, with you, a safe place where we get to know your habitual patterns of behaving and relating, and explore less familiar sides of you that may offer surprising possibilities for thinking, feeling, relating and living. How can deepening awareness enliven, balance, support, un-stick, sustain or change your life? Let's find out!

Do you have a feeling that “something” is missing from your life and you can’t quite figure out what it is? Are you moving through each day with ruminating thoughts, fears, and feeling isolated even though you may be surrounded by people? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, there is an emotional block holding you back. The main blocks to living a full life are: fear, anger, grief, and shame. These blocks are unburdened wounds that need to be revealed and shared in order to live more fully. Together, we can chart the roadmap to unburden these wounds and get you on the path that you’ve been waiting for.

Too much responsibility and stress at home, school or workplace often leads to strained relationships, isolation, loss of motivation or debilitating fears. I help people and families who are affected by anxiety, depression, ADHD, behavior challenges at school, defiance and anger, divorce or trauma. I've worked with children, teens and young adults with emotional disturbances, behavior problems, substance abuse, self-harm, or personality development issues, and helped couples and parents sort through relationship challenges.

Nearly thirty years ago I was began my family therapy training with one of the most highly-regarded figures in the field, Dr. Salvador Minuchin. Since then, I have worked with couples reeling from affairs, or on the verge of divorce, people suffering from anxiety or depression, and children with "acting out" behavior or identified as having ADHD. My long experience as a family therapist has only deepened my appreciation for the trials and triumphs of the human condition. I work relatively briefly, and often successfully, with those who have tried other therapies, without improvement.

We are all faced with choices each day, and at times we can feel stuck repeating the same patterns, unsure as to why we feel anxious, depressed, or unsatisfied. Therapy can help us uncover some of the agency and authority we do have - allowing us to understand how our past experiences might be alive in the present, and how we might make different choices for our present and future. It is a process that asks you to challenge yourself and make a commitment to your well-being, and I believe that a supportive therapeutic relationship that helps you feel safe to truly examine yourself can foster immense growth.
