My approach is warm, active, and compassionate. I work collaboratively with my patients so that discovery can unfold, and connections can be made between past influences and current patterns. My work focuses on building a stronger sense of self in a supportive and empathic environment where it feels safe to explore and challenge ways of thinking that have led to road blocks and unwanted emotional distress.

You are like all other people, like some other people and like no one else. I believe it is more important to know the person who has a problem than to know which problem the person has. Each person's anxiety, depression, problem behavior, or set of relationship difficulties is unique, while also sharing features with those of others. I value your time as well as my own, and always try to find the most efficient, effective, possibly creative solution to the problem at hand. Problem-solving proceeds from careful listening, to increasing understanding and trying out alternative actions.

We are all trying to find meaning and happiness. Therapy is a space to explore how we engage in behaviors and thoughts that often contradict this fundamental truth. I believe that people can learn different ways to interact with their personal worlds when given the space to be seen and heard. You are the expert on your own life, and my role is to support you in seeking the solutions to your unique struggles.

I am very fortunate to combine my three loves: people, psychology and dogs. Over the years my dogs have accompanied me to my office and have been of great therapeutic value and pleasure in their interaction with patients of all ages. Therapy is an exciting adventure in which therapist and patient agree to explore the patient's life, dreams, problems, fears, hopes and aspirations. As therapist it is my responsibility to guide: sometimes lead, share and always to jointly explore who the individual is. While everyones' therapy is different, therapy is the opportunity to pull ones' life together and develop the courage to change.

I enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds dealing with a wide range of concerns. Clients seek therapy for a number of reasons: some need guidance through grief and uncertainty, others feel stuck, and some want to understand themselves better. Ultimately, my job is to guide a client through revelations, insights, and desires; to help them explore and understand what drives them and what might interfere with their journey; to support them in discovering the best relationship with themself and others.

Many of us enter therapy feeling lost. Starting this journey-lost in the forest of feelings, pain, or trauma-can be so daunting. But this is likely one of the bravest things you'll ever do. And you shouldn't have to wander this forest alone. As your therapist, I'll walk beside you each step of the way, as your equal, your guide, and your support through the journey to healing.

We all get stuck from time to time, but I feel it's important to remember that the way you feel right now is not how you have to be tomorrow. I believe therapy is primarily a change in perspective. It allows us to gain a new viewpoint of the problem that has us feeling stuck. I believe this new perspective can arise when we truly feel understood. Having an impartial witness listen to our story with attention, concern and care can lay the foundation for change.

Everyone can use help on their journey toward healing and happiness. Despite how you may feel right now, there is a way to create the lasting healing and change you want in your life. These are especially challenging times for all of us. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a new normal often full of new and compounding stressors. Many of us are undergoing life transitions or have relationship, work, or other stressors that can lead to debilitating anxiety and/or depression. I am currently offering teletherapy sessions to assist those living in the greater NYC area.

My work is grounded in the desire to help you create the most crucial relationship in your life – your relationship with yourself. I base my work on exploring the thoughts and feelings associated with the self.

In these challenging times, I believe the exploration of our experience of being and the understanding of our longing for meaningful connections with others can be a driving force toward change. In our work in therapy we will deepen the understanding of yourself, discover what you want and need from others, and how to solve issues of the past that are still alive today. Together, we will explore how old patterns get in the way, and work toward a personal narrative that is based in self-compassion, acceptance, and human connection.

Being vulnerable, feeling safe, laughing, and pushing past the distress are just a few of the moments that are shared in the therapeutic relationship journey. I often work with individuals, children, families and couples who feel lost and hopeless after experiencing trauma or feeling stuck by perpetuating issues. At times, experiences that we go through may also lead to anxiety, depression, and feeling lost for how to move forward. I work with individuals to help identify ways to have these "rocks" removed and develop plans that could be accessed outside of our therapy sessions.

As a family systems thinker, I believe that each individual, couple, and family belong to many different demographics, impacting our responses, outlooks, and narratives in understanding that there is an understanding that no one client is the same. Staying curious, sitting in the learner's seat in moments, leading with empathy, and facing different realities create an opportunity for a healthy, understanding, and safe therapeutic relationship. My goal as your therapist is to create this type of environment in a collaborative effort to find the right fit.

What type of New York 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in New York?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
