I am providing online creative arts therapy and talk therapy sessions to children, adolescents, and adults and will be doing so at sliding scale rates.
Finding a therapist that is the right fit for you is a crucial first step to a successful therapeutic experience. My approach to therapy is client-centered, meaning that I will work collaboratively with you to tune into your struggles, explore new and creative ways to cope, and strengthen your ability to manage your emotional experiences. I believe in using art in conjunction to traditional talk based therapy, as I have seen it provides an alternative way of expressing oneself for children, adolescents, young adults, geriatric clients, and on an inpatient psychiatric unit.

I have worked with children and families for many years, in multiple supportive capacities, and most recently in this therapeutic setting.
"Are you feeling overwhelmed with life, because of stressors at work, at home, or with your children, or your significant other, or even your past, then that is normal." I am here to listen and help you work through those stressors and those difficult times, especially when you can't turn to friends or your family.

Waitlist for new clients
I understand that it isn't easy to reach out for help for yourself or your child, but I'm here to make sure therapy is helpful for both of you.
I'm an LCSW practicing in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and my office is conveniently located three blocks from the Bedford L stop. I'm psychodynamically oriented, and I specialize in anxiety, play therapy, trauma, and attachment. I enjoy helping families to strengthen relationships. Play is a child's natural way of communicating, and thus is the perfect tool for therapy with young children. I often work with older children, teens, and adults as well, and tailor my therapeutic approach to the needs of each person I work with.

My office is conveniently located with every resource imaginable which might be desired by children or adults.
As a retired school counselor with extensive background in dealing with substance abuse issues, I am best positioned to assist clients with difficulties related to social, academic or behavioral issues. I am particularly attuned to the ways in which parenting styles impact upon the functioning of children and to the most efficient ways of creating change to promote the likeliness of a person's or family's success and happiness. At times, these are most effectively addressed through an examination and fostering of an individual's goal-setting and motivation and how these may encumber his or her movement on the path to future satisfaction.

I worked for many years in child and adolescent mental health clinics and then in a school for behaviorally challenged children.
Have you felt like you are missing your partner, or have lost the ability to talk to each other? Do you long to feel more connected? If you cannot understand why so many of your interactions with your partner or children end up in arguments then I might be able to help. I work with families who are experiencing this kind of distance and escalations. My clients state that after our work together: they communicate better, feel more connected and 'in sync" with each other and are better able to meet each other's needs. I have heard comments such as, "I feel like I am falling in love again" and "thank you, I got my child back".
