Mental health conditions and substance use problems affect people from all walks of life and all age groups. These conditions are common, recurrent, and often serious, but they are treatable and many people do recover and thrive. Changes in thinking, mood, and behavior affect how one relates to self, another and how choices are made. When experiencing on-going personal conflict, relationship issues, family troubles, depression, stress, anxiety, and or substance dependency to cope, many people turn to a therapist for help. Early intervention is important. I help clients achieve their goals.

If you contact me you WILL get a prompt call back, regardless of whether I have openings or not. As a psychotherapist, I have worked extensively with adults and adolescents for over 25 years addressing a range of issues including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship problems, substance use and academic underperformance. You will be getting an experienced practitioner. A consultation does not establish our working relationship. You are free to walk away, and if I feel we are not a match I will suggest focused methods to find one.

You want to grow your self-confidence and self worth, but are unsure where to start.

There may be habits, beliefs, and behaviors that are no longer serving you, but you aren't sure how to change them. I’ve been there and understand. My goal as a therapist is to accompany you as a guide on your path of personal empowerment and self discovery.

My background in the arts (PhD in art history), training in DBT, clinical social work, substance use, psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and secular mindfulness deepens the work for many.
As a therapist I work collaboratively to further existing strengths and overcome difficulties that cause people to seek help. Changes in relationships and careers, personal losses and new beginnings, help with long-term recovery, and maintaining emotional balance are some of the issues that benefit from psychotherapy. I seek to provide an atmosphere of attentive listening, safe expression of thoughts and feelings, and gentle suggestions to initiate change. I work well with young and mature adults, graduate students, parents, artists and creative professionals, and anyone who seeks to integrate insight with action to generate change.

I have worked on clinical research at the New York State Psychiatric Institute, looking at how medicines including ketamine help address substance use problems.
When the body is wounded, it shows a powerful and innate ability to heal itself. Likewise, the wounded psyche has a natural inclination toward healing if conditions are right. Therapy is the container made of these essential conditions—connection, compassion, presence and, above all, safety. In it, you can access your inner intelligence to bring about growth, transformation, courage, calm, & greater balance. I approach my clients as a partner in this process, believing in your core capacities and strengths as the foundation of healing.

Making change takes intention and courage. Finding meaning in everyday life and living in a way that we yearn to is no small task! I work with adults who wish to create change and feel happier in their lives. This could mean issues surrounding transition into adulthood, dating and relationships, substance use, school and professional goals, life transitions, work/family balance, parenting, long term relationships with partners. I have expertise in supporting family members of a loved one struggling with addiction. I also have an interest in family members touched by adoption.
