I work with individuals and couples , looking at history to understand what is going on in the present (i.
Sigmund Freud said, “Love and work are the cornerstones of our humanness.” Indeed, these two themes are often what bring people to therapy and may underlie symptoms of depression and anxiety. How does one enter and maintain relationships? What is the dynamic that my partner and I co-create and how do we alter that? Does my work align with my values? Does my perfectionism get in the way of living a full and vital life? A clinician for over 20 years, my approach is practical and strength-based, helping people from all walks of life develop the skills to effectively address immediate concerns, as well as long-standing problems.

I also specialize in working with men’s issues, particularly involving: complex family dynamics, LGBT issues, relationship problems, and career/professional issues.
You may be in a crisis and in need of finding a way for life to return to normal. You might feel anxious and stuck, perhaps with taking a next step, or trapped in a persistent feeling of being depressed. I see psychotherapy as a tool to help my clients become unstuck in their lives, to build healthier relationships with themselves and their loved ones, and as a place to find sense and direction in a world where we often experience contradictory feelings and complex emotions.

I am a licensed psychotherapist specializing in depression, anxiety, relationship issues and eating disorders. I have worked in private practice for years and as a consulting therapist with the Eating Disorder Resource Center. I have a Master's Degree in Social Work from Columbia University and advanced study in psychoanalysis from the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health. This training has taught me to appreciate the formative role our early life and family experience plays in our emotional and psychological development. I enjoy working with people who are curious about themselves and their emotional struggles and are willing to look more closely at what motivates them.

Do you find yourself feeling stuck, unseen, or disconnected? Have these feelings intensified after 2+ years of pandemic? Are you wanting more from your relationships and your work? Do things like creativity and embodiment feel elusive and out of reach? Or are you a performer or achiever who is often put on a pedestal by those around you, idolized yet at a distance from the kind of care you actually want?

I have several years of experience working with individuals experiencing needs related to depression, anxiety, stress management, relationship challenges, and low self-esteem.
*I will be on maternity leave beginning in March and expect to return in early July* Therapy is a space that can empower you to develop a deeper understanding of yourself. If you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious or stressed, depressed, or have past experiences that continue to affect you, you’ve come to the right place. Therapy is an opportunity for personal growth and development, and my goal is to help you to develop deeper insight into your personal thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and emphasize your strengths and abilities. You are capable of change, you are resilient, and you deserve to live a happy life.

Perhaps you have noticed a change in your mood but you are not sure why. Maybe you may feel like you don’t enjoy things like you once used to or that you aren’t functioning at your full potential.

I get to know you on an individual level and cater my interventions to your specific needs. I draw from evidenced based orientations including psychodynamic therapy, CBT, and mindfulness based therapies. I have an extra training and specialty in anxiety treatment and management.

My approach centers on developing a rich therapeutic relationship and collaboratively creating a space where you can be seen and heard.
Some moments of questioning can feel like they awaken endless possibilities, while other moments might feel like they bring us to an abrupt stop. Often times halting moments are an accumulation of experiences, but the shock of our lives being suddenly paused, limits our ability to process the moments in their totality. I invite you to co-create a space with me that allows you to re-imagine how you confront challenging experiences with the security of knowing that you are not alone. I invite you to allow your curiosity to explore the unfamiliar and ask questions that help you discover previously unknown aspects of yourself.

I am committed to building a trusting therapeutic relationship and to providing a welcoming and safe place for the work of therapy.
The decision to enter therapy is often fueled by a desire for growth and change. Having worked as a grief counselor for 17 years, I have had the opportunity to help many people as they learn to navigate the major life changes that come with loss. The death of a loved one often triggers unresolved issues and I have helped people cope with relationship issues, family conflicts, anxiety and self esteem as they deal with the ripple effects of loss. Loss and change of any kind can turn one's world upside down. But it can also be a catalyst for growth as old ways of coping are set aside and new ways of being in the world are explored.

I place a high value on the relationship between myself and each client.
Throughout our lives, we carry within us the voices, the gaze, acceptance or disapproval, the expectations, and the praise or criticism of those who have raised us and occupied our lives. Therapy can help us discover and clarify these powerful experiences and grow in our understanding of how they motivate us, giving us freedom to make more authentic decisions in our daily lives. I view therapy as an opportunity to heal, receive support, solve problems, improve relationships, and escape problems and patterns that seem to reappear over time.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
