I understand the vulnerability, trust and courage it takes to engage in psychotherapy and confide your deepest worries, fears and desires in someone. I also know that it can be challenging to nourish your self-esteem and experience positive emotions when you feel consumed by excessive worry and the recurrent distress of traumatic events. You don’t have to do this alone. Together we will work on developing the mechanisms you need to cultivate inner peace and harmony as you weather some of your life’s transitions.

In my psychotherapy practice, I strive to create a safe and supportive environment for individuals to explore painful and troubling feelings, identify goals, and develop strategies for coping with difficult emotions and circumstances. I believe that the awareness and insight that can be developed through therapy allows people to be better connected to themselves, more engaged in their relationships, and more present in the world around them. I take an active role in therapy sessions and work with my clients in ways that challenge them to achieve their personal goals.

Life is not random. Sometimes we have this intuition in the midst of difficult situations but are not sure what to do with it. Turning points are usually waiting for us when we get inside the themes brought on by the difficulty. I work collaboratively on finding those points of insight, putting them into workable terms, and taking actionable steps with you. In practice, this happens via a combination of approaches I have found useful and effective. Including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Object Relations theory, and related models. I have several years of post-graduate institute training and experience.

Are you invested in perfection and stifled by fears of failure and success? Do you neglect yourself and take care of others? Are you easily enraged or overwhelmed and struggling to manage your moods? Are you feeling isolated and struggling with personal relationships? If any of these issues resonate for you, I am here to listen and help. I approach therapy as a process that allows you to be honest with yourself and every facet of your experience. We will explore your inner world and put words to your past and present experiences. As your self-understanding grows, inhibitions and anxieties dissipate and you will feel more alive.

Life transitions - from getting married, a new job, having children, or retirement - present us with new and unique challenges that we have to navigate. Oftentimes the challenges presented by these life transitions are informed by our experiences in navigating previous major life transitions. My approach to psychotherapy is to examine not only the current challenges but also any previous obstacles that we have faced in order to determine what interpersonal, internal, and skills-based needs may be getting in the way of successfully navigating the current situation.

Sometimes the most overwhelming step can be the first one: Finding a therapist who feels like a good fit for you. I aim to create a safe, warm environment for you to come and unpack the content of your life—your past, your current struggles, and your thoughts about how to design the future you want for yourself. With the freedom to speak candidly about issues that are causing you distress comes the power to start making change.

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.

Creating an emotionally safe environment for the client is crucial in fostering personal insight and change. I believe regardless of age, a humanistic approach and strong therapeutic alliance can help establish a connection with the client to allow growth and change. I have extensive experience treating children and adolescents. For 11 years, I traveled into elementary, middle, and high schools to provide individual and group therapy for students. I am comfortable and confident helping children and adolescents better understand and process their feelings, perceptions, and behaviors through the combined use of play-therapy, applied creative arts, and behavioral modification.

It is my belief that seeking help is a courageous step that should be commended. Therapy offers us an opportunity to get to know ourselves, and provides a safe and comfortable space to think about the ways we can make our lives better. In this space, we come to understand the deeper meanings of the problems we face, gain the emotional tools to solve these problems, and become more confident in the decisions we make. Therapy can help to slow life down, and helps us find a place in it that fits who we are.

Art is a way of knowing...it is a way to make sense of what our personal experience is. Whether we reflect on our past or consider our current state of being, creating images can be both cathartic and enlightening. Self expression is a liberating and powerful tool that can be used not only for self-expression but to also to help develop insight and empower the individual. Through the support and guidance of a licensed creative arts therapist, the individual is able to make the connections between image, content and intent to self awareness and understanding.
