Developing a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship is the first step toward helping one understand their feelings, thoughts and behaviors. Rather than being solely a passive listener, my style resembles more of an interactive approach by discussing issues in a direct and empathic manner. I help both individuals and couples to better understand and deal with life problems. Often, conflict within relationships can be overwhelming. Individual or couples therapy can help you better understand your particular relationship and teach you how to deal with conflict in more constructive and mutually gratifying ways.

I offer a safe, warm, friendly environment where we can communicate openly with one another and work on the issues at hand; it is a healthy and informative process where clients find that not only the relationship with themselves improve, but also those with others.
I am an interactive psychotherapist with advanced experience in Couples Therapy, Cognitive Therapy and Modern Psychodynamic Therapy. I help individuals and couples suffering from symptoms of depression, anxiety or problems in their relationships. Often clients come to me feeling stuck or confused about relationships and careers that keep them from engaging more fully in life. I help them to understand the problems, remove the obstacles, and live a life more in tune with their true nature. Having grown up in a family of therapists and worked through many of my own similar issues, I know personally and professionally the vast rewards of good therapy.

You do not need to face your situation alone. Our inner worlds are congested with competing desires and demands. Our resolutions may bring achievement and calm, yet leave a sense of ambivalence, or we may feel persistent turmoil with little reprieve. I work with individuals experiencing guilt, shame, lack of meaning or direction; seeking deeper understanding of themselves, family issues, and relationship dynamics; or pursuing personal growth and life transitions. I worked in investment banking prior to training as a psychotherapist and understand the particular pressures prevalent in the demanding arena of business.

I view personal problems in the context of people's relationship histories, including their earliest relationships, and their current ways of relating to families, friends, co-workers, and communities.
I believe that life's difficulties offer prime opportunities for growth and learning. People, including young people, bring their own wisdom and knowledge to therapy, and they have great potential for change when they are empowered to access their own resources. Significant change often follows naturally when a person is able to experience difficult feelings such as sadness, fear, and anger in manageable doses in the presence of someone who can listen well, understand, and provide good feedback.

I work with many people who battle with self-esteem, depression, anxiety, relationship /intimacy issues, and trauma.
My passion is to help clients make life changes that bring confidence, fulfillment and authenticity. As a Core Energetics Practitioner, with over fifteen years of experience, I help clients reengage their flow, purpose and direction. We can easily lose our sense of direction when struggles take over, whether those struggles are personal, relational or financial. We can find ourselves stuck in survival mode, depressed and anxious. Thoughts and movements become blocked and disconnected; we no longer feel in the flow of life.

I also work with people who are having relationship issues , going through breakup, having difficulties in sustaining a relationship , and struggling with loneliness.
I welcome your interest and courage to search for a psychotherapist to work on the challenges you have in your daily life. I look forward to work together to help you explore, confront and transform the difficulties you have. There are reasons that you are experiencing the challenges and we can explore them together to see clearly where they are coming from and how they might be unconsciously impeding you from changes or reaching your goals. Changes are more likely to occur when this happens.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a New York relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in New York.
