Are you trying to manage your stress in the ever-growing tumultuous environment? Are you working from home having a hard time juggling with family life? Perhaps you have a challenge with practicing effective communication? Or maybe just talking about your issues can be difficult, and that's ok. Do you want to learn more about yourself, how to cope in a healthy way, and have better communication? I can help. In my practice, I respect the unique experience of each individual. I see the particular difficulties that each faces. I listen and interact with empathy and provide insight and support. No two treatments are the same.

I work primarily with adolescents, children, and young adults who have had very difficult experiences and need a safe, playful, and steady partner to explore the impact of these events on their lives. As an out queer clinician I also work regularly with LGBTQIA+ clients who seek a therapist aware of the complexity of those identities in the world, as well as with parents looking to better develop skills to support trans or queer-identified children. I recognize racism and white supremacy as forms of social oppression that provoke traumatic responses and work accordingly with clients who have been harmed by these systems.

After many years of working in direct service in organizations, I come to private practice using an eclectic approach, often blending behavioral therapies with psychodynamic roots through a person-centered lens. I aim to modify theories and interventions to shape positive outcomes for the client's cultural aspects. My experience provides a connective insight into a client's progression toward healthy development. The foundational pillars of ethics are necessary for effective counseling and are the core of each platform implemented in my therapeutic practice.

Adjusting to changes in a time of uncertainty while maintaining a sense of connection to one’s friends and family can be difficult. In such conditions it is easy to feel disconnected from one's career and from the support systems used to foster a sense of stability. This sense of disconnection can be overwhelming and can result in feelings of anxiety and depression.

My approach with individuals and couples is holistic and experiential, rooted in psychodynamic psychotherapy, EFT, and mindfulness. I believe that my role as a therapist is to help clients and couples discover, engage and sometimes confront contradictory or conflicting parts of the self. I believe that this brings about access to the unconscious and a greater understanding of one's wishes, fears, losses, and strengths.

Our lives can lead us to existential confusion, self-doubt, and seeming psychological impasses that can affect our relationships, careers, creative life, and health. Patterns of behavior can seem intractable, with the past resurfacing in the present and managing day-to-day stressors becoming a burden. I will collaborate with you on cultivating a non-judgmental curiosity about your experience, both past and present, and on finding more freedom and agency to lead life in a fulfilling and healthy way.

I work with clients who want to build a life they can love. Many of us come to therapy seeking help through a difficult period, healing from an experience (or a lifetime of them), or relief from a source of emotional pain. As your therapist, I bring empathy and compassion to our work together. You are not to blame for the difficulties you experience and at the same time, healing will mean journeying into difficult areas within yourself. I create a caring and empowering space for that exploration; help you identify, understand, and challenge an oppressive world; and co-create a life you can love living.

In therapy, we take a courageous step in pursuit of the age old quest: know thyself. Yet why is it so elusive and scary to do so? We all have our blind spots, our unconscious obstructions, traumas and repressions, left in the dark corners of the psyche. These may bring about great suffering for reasons unknown to us. Together, in a safe, open minded therapeutic space, we will explore what it is that is holding you back from your goals and growth; what is left in the darkness, causing pain. We will work towards finding more autonomy, authenticity and freedom. We will nourish the ground upon which you may bloom to your full potential.

Reaching out for help isn't easy. It's a lesson in vulnerability. You're taking the first step by searching for a professional and trying to make sense of the way you're feeling right now.

We all may have felt that way some time or another. Most of the time we move on and continue on with our life. However sometimes we feel stuck, and despite being told (or telling ourselves) "just get over it” we can’t! There is something that holds us back and we cannot make sense of what is happening to us.

I am a Marriage and Family Psychotherapist in private practice in Brooklyn for over thirty years and formerly Director of Family Services at a large, multi-modal, private counseling center in Manhattan. Although continuing to work with individuals, for the last twenty years my continued training and professional focus has been on couples, children, and families as it became increasingly clear that engaging the family group was so much more effective and efficient. This comes not merely from having the additional information, but from being able to mobilize the inherent strength of the family and its' intrinsic, natural movement towards growth.

I have seen how much difficulty can arise during certain times in our lives. I've also learned that even the most challenging problems can be overcome, and how this is possible. For therapy to be beneficial, it is important to have a strong connection between client and therapist that is based in trust and honesty. The success of your treatment depends on your relationship with your therapist. The extent to which you and your therapist are on the same page is a great indicator of how well your hard work will pay off.

People go to therapy when they feel hopeless, worried or stuck. They feel they can't cope with their lives, their struggles. They might know what's wrong but can't see a way out; or how untangle "things" inside. Worst of all, they can feel trapped. During the initial sessions and beyond, I work with a patient’s thoughts and feelings about their past, their family, friends, and relationships. We also work to uncover known and unknown strengths, and defining moments of success and self-realization.

The privacy of our emotional suffering can be painful. Not being able to share our innermost thoughts and feelings makes it difficult to have more meaningful relationships and to experience ourselves in a way that is life-enhancing. Having taken this first step to begin psychotherapy means that a part of you has chosen a personal path of healing. Talking with a psychoanalyst, someone who understands the complexities of the emotional world, will bring to life your pains, desires, and conflicts within a non-judgemental process that is both soothing and life-changing.

Male Therapists

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
