Directly facing our challenges and issues can be difficult, especially when there are less certainties to hold onto. I strive to simplify our process, through dispelling unnecessary complexity, to aid you in navigating discomfort. My approach taps into creative parts work, so that clients can explore and unearth rich parts of themselves, in order to foster authenticity and build independence.

Healthy relationships with ourselves and others are some of the greatest indicators of overall well-being. We are hardwired for connection, and some of our most profound healing experiences and deepest emotional wounds happen with those closest to us. I use an attachment framework and trauma-informed lens to help you explore your attachment history, recognize your views of self and others, identify patterns that contribute to gridlock issues, and then work to communicate your needs in new ways that strengthen connection, trust, and security with yourself and in your present and future relationships.

My approach to therapy draws from modalities such as interpersonal, art therapy, mindfulness based practices, Health at Every Size, and trauma informed practice. I understand that sometimes it is difficult to talk about one's emotions. However, even without words, it's often helpful to express those feelings through other mediums. I also help clients better understand their internal thought patterns, their motivations to make healthy changes in their lives, and their daily attentional patterns.

Is it difficult to find the time for therapy? Online counseling can make it more accessible for you. Do you feel overwhelmed, have negative or irrational thoughts that are sometimes intrusive? Allow me to help you think more positively and develop healthy coping skills. I am adept at anxiety and depression, personality disorders, addiction, eating disorders and those affected by trauma. My role as a therapist is to provide you with a safe and non-judgmental environment to explore your thoughts and feelings.

All of us have the basic needs of connection, validation, and support within a trusted relationship. Many of us wrestle with our past mistakes or trauma in the form of depression, or worry about the uncertainty of the future in the form of anxiety, or simply want help navigating the complex modern world. As a therapist with years of diverse experiences, I believe I can help a variety of clients, from children ages 10 and up to adolescents, and adults.

What would it look like if you were more in your life? I help those who struggle with old emotional patterns be more present in their bodies and become active participants in their healing. I am a psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapist with an empathic and humorous approach to the work. Before I became a therapist, I taught Pilates for over 15 years and received a Masters of Science in Kinesiology. The body and the mind are undoubtedly connected. The body tells a story, and therapy gives us the tools to be able to articulate that story.

You may look like the same person on the outside, but inside everything has changed. You don't recognize yourself anymore. Your mind is constantly replaying painful memories, making it hard to focus on anything and leaving you overwhelmed. You are afraid all the time - afraid to be out in the world, to be around other people, and afraid your life will never be the same. But this does not have to continue to be how you live.

Waking up to another morning feeling the same anxiety and dread about your job, school, self-identity, partner, or family? Does life feel like all too much? Or maybe even empty? Are you ready to take steps forward while being present in the right here, right now? To feel excited by life and at peace with it? To breathe in fresh air, whatever your obstacles? My approach begins with you and your relationship with yourself, the people around you, and your environment. We all suffer from common problems in life, love, and work, but the solutions that work for each of us are as unique as we are.

I am a Clinical Social Worker with a background in treating behavioral health and substance abuse issues at community agencies and hospitals in New York City. My own experiences coping with anxiety were one of the key reasons I got into this line of work, and so I can understand how important your wellness and self-care are. A bit about my approach to therapy I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy which is an approach that is effective at helping resolve a wide variety of issues. In CBT we will take a look at the way our thoughts influence our mood, and how to change unhelpful thoughts to feel better.

Therapy is an opportunity for you to work on developing how "you want the next chapter of your life to read". I have over twenty years of experience in working with people to help them work through many different issues in their lives, both from their past and/or their present. It is very important to understand the stress that a person is experiencing and develop positive skills to decrease and manage the stress. I work with individuals to create a positive plan to master these skills.

Many clients in my Fort Greene practice are suffering from depression and anxiety. Both these strong emotions can rob you of joy in life, your energy, and your interest in connecting with others. Many people underestimate the impact of these strong emotions on your relationships, your productivity, and your health. Freeing yourself from the paralyzing trap of depression and anxiety will give you new energy to move on in your life.

Are you feeling slightly reluctant about your child needing help? Have previous interventions thus far been unsuccessful? Maybe the 'problem' has only been exacerbated by time? Some moodiness, anxiety, and socioemotional difficulties are expected as kids grow up. However, the possibility of your child struggling with tough emotions has increased even more due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. It can be challenging to admit that your child may need professional support; I commend you on your effort in seeking relief for them.
