My background includes work with adolescent and adult individuals, families, and groups struggling with a variety of mental health issues.
In my work I use therapy to help identify and support my clients in getting what they want out of life. Whether it is making a big life change, working on a relationship, or resolving an issue that you have not been able to get a handle on, therapy can help you develop the necessary tools and insight to navigate through life's challenges. Furthermore, the skills you will gain will help you not only with the presenting problem, in our work we will explore how these skills can be applied to improve other areas of your life.

I am a family therapist with over 20 years of experience. I provide supervision and training as well as therapy, and am a senior faculty member at the Minuchin Center for the Family. I work with individuals and families experiencing the range of issues that bring people into therapy: depression, divorce, substance abuse, behavior problems, relationship issues, adolescent issues, etc. I work with children, adolescents, and adults; and see individuals, couples, and families. But, as a family therapist, I am always concerned with the many ways in which our families and our significant relationships impact on our lives.

I support the LGBTQ+, adolescent , and adult populations through trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, mindfulness, post-induction therapy, inner child, religion integrated CBT, interpersonal psychotherapy, narrative therapy, and others.
The therapeutic partners I work with span sexual orientation, gender identity, and ethnicity. Many navigate anxiety, depression and trauma, while others seek to explore hurts, habits, and hang ups that minimize their ability to thrive. There are still others that navigate childhood wounds that cripple their functional adult selves. I also partner with persons from diverse faith communities that have experienced spiritual abuse and religious trauma, and desire to work with someone who is both a spiritual leader and clinician and does not shy away from spirituality as a protective factor.

I also specialize in adolescent issues.
As a true believer in human strength, many of us spend our lives searching for what is already there. A fuller and meaningful life is lived when we have discovered our inner strength. I am trained to help you find your inner strength so you can live a healthier and more meaningful life. My practice is rooted on a psychodynamic approach--assisting the client in gaining a perspective of pure insight in order to recognize the character, traits, actions, responses, and behaviors that will be transformed.

I am a child, adolescent , and adult psychologist licensed in NY and CA with over 20 years of experience.
Is your child having difficulty with friends? With school? At home? Do they appear sad, worried, or angry? Parents want to help their child but don't know where to start. Our kids' behaviors can be confusing, so that is why I work with you to understand the "why's" of your child's behaviors. I teach you effective parenting strategies, and I work with your child to help them gain tools to help them feel better. Are you an adult who is having difficulty in relationships, or are you struggling with sadness, fears, or anger? I work with you to find tools and strategies that can work for you in your path to healing.

Have you wondered if your child or adolescent would benefit from therapy? I offer a complimentary consultation to discuss any questions you may have. I can help your child explore their feelings, make sense of their experience, and develop their full potential. I can help your child become their own therapist by learning techniques and coping strategies to learn how to deal with their challenges in their lives. I work well with children and adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, social issues, learning issues, attention deficit disorder, and body image issues. Clients often see improved well-being early on in therapy.

Anxiety, worry and self-doubt are perhaps the most common and widespread challenges faced by children today. From every area of their lives, children face daunting pressures and demands. For those already anxious or vulnerable, these pressures maybe be overwhelming. Already primed for frustration or failure, such children may find navigating key developmental transitions - from childhood to grade school, for example, or from pre-adolescence to the teen years - difficult if not impossible. Parents may have tried other interventions or therapies; but often with little or no success. What's a concerned parent to do?

My clinical approach is integrative, combining elements of evidence-based and experiential interventions including: mindfulness, solution-focused approaches; cognitive behavioral interventions; family interventions; trauma-focused treatment; eye movement desensitization response (EMDR); child play therapy; adolescent psychotherapy; family collaborative problem solving; training coping skills and interpersonal skills; interpersonal neurobiology.
Improving our lives or relationships, or helping our children do so, may seem like a daunting challenge, yet we know when change is needed. Fortunately, we all have within us a natural capacity for growth and well-being that is best facilitated in the context of relationships that nurture the deepest parts of your being and awaken your strengths. Over the past 20 years I have gained a deep appreciation for the complexity of human experience and the pain and difficulties involved in living with emotional or relational problems in our lives or in our children's lives.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in New York and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
