I believe that hurt, disappointment, sadness and grief are a normal part of the human experience. However, we often turn this hurt inward and create even more painful beliefs about ourselves and the world. I create genuine relationships with my clients, helping them to address and remove barriers that prevent them from more meaningful, authentic, and purposeful lives. I offer curiosity, new ideas and techniques while helping my clients identify and shift patterns that no longer serve them.

Such clients would be receptive towards homework assignments, self reflection, and questioning patterns in their life that keep them viciously entangled in their symptoms.

Every person deserves a space in their lives in which they feel heard, acknowledged, accepted, and safe. Finding the "right" therapist and imagining how it might feel to open up to someone new can be difficult as well as emotionally draining. In understanding some of these challenges, I place great importance on facilitating a comfortable and non-judgmental space in which clients feel comfortable being vulnerable. I take a person-centered and strengths-based approach to therapy, and believe that the creation of a strong therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is one of the most important aspects of our work.

As a clinical psychologist my goal is to help clients find ways to help themselves be happier and more satisfied with their lives. People usually come to therapy because they are suffering in some way: perhaps anxious or depressed or they have trouble finding or sustaining meaningful relationships. The goal of treatment is to begin to talk openly and honestly about the obstacles in ones life and to think about how to move forward. I will work toward putting you in charge of your own well being, but I will also work carefully to ensure you are safe and well cared for: this will be a collaborative effort.

Life can be painful and complicated at times, and so often we react instead of respond to stress. Whether you are an adult, teen, or child, emotions can be complex to navigate and difficult to manage alone. My goal is to support you through difficult moments, help you build awareness and understanding for your behaviors and feelings, gain clarity in confusing times, better understand your relationships, and ultimately help you see life in clearer terms. As a collaborator on this journey, I aim to provide a nurturing and safe environment so that you may explore your internal nature and grow in all the ways you desire.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Brooklyn?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
