This right here, this first step is scary. Overwhelming. Intimidating. Vulnerable. This is the scariest part of the process, recognizing that you need additional support. Sometimes it may seem easier to stay in denial, to convince yourself that things are ok, to justify your circumstances, and the reoccurring patterns in your life. Change is scary, and unpredictable, but yet you are here, wading into vulnerability and on the cusp of making a decision that will improve your life undoubtedly.

Perhaps you are struggling with excessive worrying, low self esteem, relational issues, or navigating a life transition. Or perhaps you struggle with discontentment - some inkling that you could be leading a more satisfying life. Whatever brings you to therapy and whatever your background, I will welcome you with compassion, competence, and sensitivity to your current set of challenges. I view the therapeutic relationship as central to the change process and thus strive to create a warm, caring, and non judgmental space for you to freely explore your thoughts, feelings, and ways of relating to yourself and others.

My private practice offers a warm and caring place to build skills and enhance personal growth. Therapy is a guided process of self-discovery. It provides access to develop and strengthen skills so that new, healthier thoughts and behaviors take the place of old unhealthy ones. My approach is determined by your needs. I pay attention to your strengths, guided by a belief that you already possess the ability to make things better. My style is down-to-earth and supportive, and I believe that active listening and feedback are essential so that you feel understood. Then we work together on identifying and reaching your goals.

From the outside you seem to have it all together. Inside you feel down, trapped, lost, and lonely despite not being alone. You're frustrated with life but don't know what to do about it. After achieving some life goals you're stuck wondering: now what? Maybe you successfully made it through school and into your early career, but it's not what you were hoping for. Maybe you're torn between wanting a relationship and wanting to remain fiercely independent, or you want a partner but the idea of dating is nerve-racking. Perhaps you're in a relationship but you still feel lonely. Something's missing, but you're not sure what.

It is sometimes difficult to know the direction one must take in life because of the influence of family, friends, and even strangers. Advice may be plentiful, but not helpful. I help by offering supportive and collaborative conversations so that you may find your own voice, use the skills and creativity that you have to survive life's challenges, transitions and relationships. I have made a commitment to work with individuals, and their families (when desired and available) to improve relationships, heal pains, and stregthen bonds.

Psychotherapy is a process that facilitates change, growth and renewal. There are many concerns that may bring us to therapy: a difficult relationship, a general feeling of dissatisfaction, a life transition, a traumatic experience, gender/sexual orientation issues, immigration, feelings of depression, anxiety or loss. All of these circumstances are worthy of attention.

I FOCUS ON MEN"S COUNSELING. Are you a man who feels stuck between anger and numbness? or feeling depressed and don’t know how to deal with it? Do you wish something would change in your relationships, but you don't know what to do or worried it might end? Whether married or divorced, are the roles of a father not what you expected? Men tend to isolate themselves when what they need is someone to talk to. Even if there isn’t a major life event or crisis, if a man has not had a warm, positive, well-attuned relationship with a father, a male therapist can help you uncover what's missing since childhood.

My clients struggle with self-acceptance and often see themselves through a harsh, unforgiving lens. Though they can sometimes understand the connection between their anxious feelings, grief, or feelings of depression and their behavior, they feel unable to forgive themselves for their actions and inability to achieve true happiness. My clients are able to share the most intimate feelings and are met with nonjudgmental compassion and empathy. Soon enough, they become more willing and able to offer it to themselves as well!

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. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

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.

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.

What type of therapist is right for me?

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.

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 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.

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.
