I help people just like you who are struggling with anxiety and stress, obsessive compulsive disorder ( OCD ), perfectionism, hair pulling (trichotillomania), and skin picking .
You’ve felt this way for too long. You thought that in time you would feel better, but you don’t. You are exhausted from hearing that inner voice that tells you, you’re not good enough, you’ll always feel this way, or you have to be perfect. You feel guilty, anxious, and embarrassed for thinking these thoughts and for behaving in ways you feel you just can’t control. You feel frustrated, depressed, and overwhelmed. You feel like you are on a hamster wheel and going nowhere fast. You aren’t sure how you got to this place, but you know you want out. There is hope. You don’t have to feel this way and you don’t have to do it alone.

Can’t seem to turn your brain off and stop worrying? Are you constantly overthinking? Are you playing the same events over and over in your mind? Always concerned about saying or doing the right thing? Inside you may be feeling on-edge and nervous, and struggling with doubts and fears can be so tiring, which makes it harder to cope. It can seem like a never-ending cycle where trying to control everything just makes you feel more restless and out of control.

I am a clinical psychologist licensed in New York and New Jersey. I specialize in Child and Adolescent Psychology and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and in working with individuals experiencing anxiety, stress, and related difficulties. I believe strongly that there should be no mysteries in therapy. Goals are best served if they are clearly established. Children, adolescents and their families deserve to be part of creating those goals and should know when they are being achieved. Therapy should be practical and based on the available relevant research evidence.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Therapists
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
