Encountering struggles in our lives is a universal part of our humanity. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed and alone, whether going through a painful breakup, dealing with grief from a tragic loss, coping with the pressures of career or chronic illness, or dealing with family and relationship situations. Sometimes we just need someone to talk to, who is impartial, can listen, and who can help us somehow make sense of it all. Therapy can act as a bridge of compassion and hope, to get us through to the other side to a greater understanding of our authentic selves and to help us reach the potential to live our best lives.

As an individual and relationship therapist, I aim to make the experience as comfortable as possible for you. I believe that we are all deserving of compassion, respect, and generosity. My clients have diverse lived experiences and backgrounds. As such, I approach my practice with an intersectional perspective, ensuring your therapeutic experience is individually tailored to your needs.

My professional interests include working with individuals who have faced traumatic experiences of any nature; symptoms of anxiety and depression; difficulties stemming from troubled relationships and complicated family dynamics; bereavement; perinatal issues; and cultural issues.
Every individual’s motivation for seeking therapy is unique. I am sensitive to the specific goals that an individual has for the treatment, and frame recommendations accordingly. For some, therapy may involve a few, brief targeted consultations, while others may choose to engage in a longer term treatment. Regardless of the duration of treatment, I view the therapeutic relationship as providing the scaffolding to achieve one’s full potential, and resolve symptoms which often arise out of unresolved conflicts and anxieties.

I'm a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst specializing in anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. Before I became a therapist, I worked as a freelance writer, editor, and writing coach.

I've taught family and couple therapy at Hunter College School of Social Work.
Choosing a psychotherapist is rarely an easy decision. Can I trust this person? Will she be able to help and understand me? I believe that feeling respected and heard is the first step in a therapist-patient relationship. It is a necessary prerequisite to meaningful change in a person's life. People come to me with many concerns that can rob them of optimism and hope, and leave them feeling anxious,worried, alone,sad or frightened. I work to help people overcome obstacles, to value themselves more, and to help them find meaning and connection.

I have been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for a very long time. I have much experience working with people of all ages, backgrounds, sexual orientation, and relationship issues. I do this work because it is very satisfying. And it is “work” for my clients as well. I know that my clients need courage and self awareness to recognize when they need to reach out for help. I consider the goal of therapy is to empower my clients to find solutions to solve the problems in their life—to get unstuck from unhealthy patterns in their life—unresolved and repetitive conflicts.

I blend both Western psychotherapies, such as Internal Family Systems, with Eastern practices like Yoga, Meditation, and Somatic work.
Imagine feeling less shame and more connected to those around you. Imagine having more space from your inner critic/judge while having more patience and compassion for yourself and others. Imagine moving from perceptions of “not good enough” to feeling more "whole". Feeling less confused and more confident and clear about yourself and important life goals/decisions. Imagine unburdening from past traumas that still negatively impact your life and present relationships, shifting from helplessness to empowerment and healing from painful past hurts and moving forward with more connection, clarity, love, compassion and safety.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
