Please check out my NY Times article, "It's Not Always Depression , Sometimes It's Shame".
We all have strivings toward connection, understanding, and growth. The more these yearnings are thwarted by deprivation, misattunement, trauma or loss, the more profound and painful the longings and needs can become. There is a basic human need that we all have to grow, to heal, and to transform into becoming our true and best self.

I have years of experience helping clients deal with anxiety, depression and anger problems and with couples who are looking to reduce marital conflict. When new clients call me they are looking for help in coping so they can feel better and handle their life challenges more effectively. Some people are looking for understanding of what happened and how they got here, and some are more interested in learning coping skills quickly, and most want some combination of both approaches. I listen to what their individual wants and needs and plan accordingly.

Congratulations on exploring the option of counseling. My treatment approach is based on respecting each person's inner strength and wisdom. My clients describe me as engaged, interactive, empathic and at times humorous all the the while instilling hope during stressful times.I make this claim with confidence because I have observed how easily my clients relate their most personal issues to me. My sessions provide an environment in which clients can slow down their thinking and pay closer attention to their own wisdom, which facilitates change.

Do you lack self-confidence? Achieving greater self-confidence can lead to immense improvement in every area of one's life. Depression and/or anxiety can develop as a result of low self-confidence, often stemming from early childhood experiences. I have substantial training and experience in helping patients to understand themselves better and to receive the support that has been lacking in their lives. I completed extensive postgraduate training in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health. Call me to set up your free consultation. I look forward to seeing you.

With years of experience working with people from all walks of life dealing with depression , anxiety, cross-cultural and immigration issues, I am looking forward joining your journey of growth.
Therapy is a path to change, growth and healing so you can live the life you want. Our lives turn in unexpected ways, at times it causes us anxieties and discomfort. As we all face emotional and professional conflicts that leave us feeling lonely, unfulfilled or stuck, it's hard to keep hope when you feel trapped by longstanding patterns in your relationships, thoughts, or career. I believe that change is possible. Psychotherapy speaks in many voices. In a safe and non-judgmental environment, my aim is to help you understand the roadblocks, both past and present, impacting your actions and feelings.

It takes tremendous courage to tackle troubling issues and it's important to understand that you are not alone. Therapy can seem scary, but establishing a warm therapeutic alliance can allow you to share your dreams and fears confidentially, without judgment or negative repercussions. By building a collaborative partnership we identify behaviors holding you back. I work with both individuals and couples seeking to improve their sense of well-being and navigate transitions. I also work with anxiety, loss, depression , chronic illness, and medical related trauma.

I work from a relational perspective specializing in anxiety, depression , trauma as well as substance use.
Finding a therapist that is a good fit for you can feel challenging. It is important for you to feel safe, comfortable and understood. I believe therapy should be a place where you feel seen and heard in a genuine way. Within this relationship you can begin to see patterns in your life where perhaps you feel stuck. It is my belief that by understanding where anxiety, depression and grief may be stemming from in your life, you can make shifts toward more successful relationships and a life with more fulfillment.

Welcome. For over 20 years, I've worked with individuals with depression , anxiety, life transitions, medical illness, disability and loss. I work from a mindfulness-based perspective, bringing a kind, compassionate, curious attitude to places of suffering and 'stuckness' in life, to move towards living more consistently in ways that matter to each individual. As the poet Rumi states, "This being human is a guest house," the task being how to invite all the guests, the difficulties, joys and all in between. I integrate Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. MBCT groups periodically available.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in New York. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
