My passion is helping people adjust to significant transitions in their lives. Often when we experience changes in our lives, we lose our sense of balance and identity. These changes may be caused by the death of a loved one, shifts in family roles, adjustment to an illness, or new demands at school or work. In our work, you will gain a deeper understanding of how these transitions are impacting your mood, quality of life, and overall happiness. I work with clients to set and achieve realistic goals, while using one's values and strengths to help achieve these goals.

There are many reasons we might seek psychotherapy. We might want more or better for ourselves. We may be ready for change but something is stopping us. Perhaps we are grappling with a change, challenge, or uncertainty already upon us. The people I work with face challenges at various life stages, including those related to depression, anxiety, chronic/acute trauma, cultural conflicts, relationships, motherhood, high-pressure academic and work environments, entrepreneurship, and loss.

The feeling of not truly belonging, whether it be in the context of one’s cultural environment, birth family, or sex can often lead to a painful sense of inadequacy, stagnation, and paralyzing low self-esteem. Left unaddressed, these feelings give way to fear and resentment and hinder us from finding our true voice, pursuing our life calling, forming and keeping meaningful relationships, and experiencing joy. You may be tired of feeling stuck, yet also anxious and overwhelmed by the prospect of change. Continuing to hide and bottle up your gifts and desires can only lead to long-term regret over a life unlived. There is another way.

I believe that people are the experts in their own lives and that we are wired to connect, adapt and grow. But life can be difficult to navigate. We all get stuck sometimes, or we imagine that our lives could be better but cannot seem to find the way on our own. The overarching goal of therapy is to reconnect with our own inner wisdom to experience real transformation and healing. It's a deep privilege for me to be part of that process. I use a holistic approach with a mix of evidence-based methods that are tailored to your individual needs.

I think people come to therapy with a purpose - to realize certain hopes, address pressing difficulties, reduce the obstacles in their way. I view psychotherapy as an active collaboration around that purpose, and seek to create a welcoming and comfortable base of strengthening support. I have twenty years' experience helping people manage anxiety, mood disorders, issues of self-esteem, loss, relationship problems. I use diverse approaches, drawing on: training in psychoanalysis; techniques gained doing couples treatment; skills from extensive work with teens. Additionally, I have expertise treating substance abuse. I have written and presented widely on these subjects, and am on the faculty at NYU.

FAQs - About Therapy and Counseling

How can I find a therapist in New York?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
