Do you want results? Are you finding that you keep getting in your own way? That your emotions, trauma, pain, BS stories and anxiety are preventing you from living the life you are meant to live? The good news is that there is always a way, a technique or perspective that can and will shift you and your life. The catch? You need to be willing to step into the unknown and get uncomfortable.

Living with ADHD is challenging. My ADHD clients struggle with time management, planning, getting started with and completing projects, creating reasonable morning and evening routines, and impulsivity. If you feel that you are constantly spinning your wheels without getting any traction working with a coach will help you get unstuck. As an ADHD coach I can help my clients manage the symptoms of ADHD, set specific goals and support them as they move toward acheiving those goals. I work with clients as part of their health care team.

Are you a queer or trans person feeling stuck or disconnected and looking for support with your relationships, sexuality, or gender? For many of us, navigating intimacy and seeking purpose in our lives can bring up the legacies of shame, estrangement, and trauma, and make us feel anxious, overwhelmed, lonely, or empty—especially in a time of increasing uncertainty, heightened injustice, and institutional failures. But as queer people we’re also highly adaptive and resilient. In my practice, I help clients build on this strength so they can brave tough moments, heal, and find a greater sense of authenticity and trust in themselves.

Change is an inevitable facet of life. Although some changes may be welcome, others may evoke feelings of fear, sadness, or even despair. Be it the loss or rupture of important relationships, upsets in one's career or academics, or taking on new roles and/or responsibilities; changes like these can be challenging. However, they may also present opportunities for deep self-reflection and personal growth.

As we are all confronted with the challenges of the current public health crisis, many of us are experiencing significant changes to our social and familial relationships, our economic realities, and our sense of normalcy. This can naturally contribute to feelings of anxiety, stress, fear, and uncertainty. Therapy can provide you with a supportive space to process and navigate these challenging times. My approach to therapy is to partner with you to create an individualized and goal-directed treatment plan that draws upon your strengths, and enables you to make lasting changes.

With curiosity and compassion I aim to offer individuals not merely a physical space to sort through concerns; but the opportunity to create space in the thought process for insight to occur. Through reflection on relationships, and the collaborative examination of formative experiences, we will drive toward the identification and adoption of alternative perspectives. This is a reliable path to healing and meaningful, lasting change. Please do not hesitate to contact me for a free consultation to determine if I would be a "good fit" to aid you in addressing concerns.

I am a seasoned clinician based in Brooklyn with a background in relational, attachment based psychotherapy. A psychodynamic approach will help us identify what's under the surface to tackle old habits, default behaviors, cognitive distortions that can cause symptoms like anxiety or depression. Trauma can be debilitating until you learn strategies to weaken its hold. Therapy is a partnership to strengthen your sense of self, create sustainable skills to cope with stressors, feel effective in meeting your own needs. I utilize a wide variety of therapeutic approaches, adapted specifically for you including CBT and EMDR.

The decision to enter into therapy can be overwhelming but finding a connection to the right therapist can change your life. I believe that the foundation of the therapeutic process is built on rapport. I understand that being vulnerable and sharing areas of your life can be difficult, and I am here to make that easier for you by collaborating with you to reach your desired goals. My style has been described as the antithesis of a note scratching, cliché, therapist.

The collective grief of the pandemic has left us facing anxiety and unstability we may have already been managing before, but it's now magnified by the loss of so much of what we remember having. Emerging feelings can include grief, depression, relationship issues, parenting stress, and even anger. This can leave us feeling isolated and alone as we struggle to navigate through the monotony and difficulties of our new every day.

Times of transition can often cause us to feel overwhelmed. While people close to us may be supportive, we may not always feel able to share with them our doubts and discomfort. Having an empathic therapist who can objectively help us navigate the journey is invaluable. My work with clients who have struggled with depression and anxiety, survived trauma or grief, or experience the world as LGBTQ+ identified people is strengths-based, person-centered, and results-oriented.

Whether you suffer with anxiety, depression or relationship issues we can work together to figure out how to manage all these things and learn skills to help you cope.

I believe that symptoms such as anxiety, depression, dissatisfaction in relationships, and feeling “lost” are cues to investigate what is truly happening within us, and attend to it. I believe that feelings of empowerment enable individuals to obtain power, authority, and influence over themselves, institutions or society. I have experience working with adults and young adults from various communities and across the spectrum of gender and sexuality, and I am committed to ongoing learning from my clients about the truth of their own lived experience.

While therapy can sometimes remind us of pain we may have tried hard to push away, my hope is to help you access your intrinsic joy, creativity and compassion so you can connect to yourself and others in a more fulfilling way. I treat individuals and couples using an attachment-based perspective and help clients explore how early trauma necessitated adaptive coping strategies that can get in their way later in life.

What type of Brooklyn mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Brooklyn?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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. 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?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
