I am a licensed clinical psychologist who helps adults, adolescents, and couples understand and cope with difficult feelings and behaviors that are getting in their way. Sometimes we feel inexplicably sad, lonely, withdrawn, defeated, alienated, anxious, or self-defeating. These feelings can impact our lives and relationships in a negative way. By exploring and understanding these feelings and behaviors together, we can begin to work on changing the negative patterns and to restore a sense of connection and engagement.

Reaching out and asking a professional for help is hard; you are also now one step further in your process. Understanding that, I offer a safe, empathic, and judgment free space to work toward your goals. Whether you have already tried therapy in the past and you feel like you're starting back at square one or this is your first time, we will build on your strengths to achieve a more enjoyable present. I have been trained in EMDR, which can be utilized to address anxiety, depression, trauma, and a number of other concerns; this treatment can provide relief at a faster pace than traditional psychotherapy if an appropriate modality.

Choosing to pursue therapy is a difficult decision but one that can offer great benefit. I work primarily with individuals and couples struggling to find and maintain intimate relationships they find gratifying. Difficulties in relationships often lead to depression, loneliness, and the feeling of being "stuck." My approach is practical and present-focused yet grounded in an understanding of the ways our past experiences may have contributed to our present difficulties. I help patients to explore and work through what gets in the way of them developing the kind of intimate relationships they desire.

Congratulations! You’ve made the courageous decision to search for something new. My approach to psychotherapy is experiential and relational. I believe that we hold within us everything we need for recovery and expansion and that a genuine and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship offers the context for healing, exploration, and growth. My clients describe feeling gotten and empowered by me. Psychotherapy with me is like traditional talking therapy. And also quite different. We won’t just talk about the bad experiences you’ve had. We’ll also cultivate new ones and help you consolidate the "new you" that will slowly emerge.

I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is the vehicle for lasting growth and change. Using a collaborative, integrative approach to treatment, we will work together to determine goals for treatment and then work toward achieving those goals. I believe in accessing and exploiting the strengths you bring to the treatment, as well as understanding how your particular culture and background have impacted your life experience. In addition, I do not believe that psychotherapy can be successful unless it occurs in a safe and supportive environment, which I strive to create and maintain.

Together we will identify patterns of behaviors and thoughts that are no longer working for you, and learn new techniques to maximize your quality of life. As we learn more about your style of thinking and how you act/react to challenges, we will investigate how these styles developed, why they developed, and why they may no longer be successful in helping you navigate your life's demands.

When you are physically ill you turn to your doctor, hoping he or she can help you feel better. Problems like depression, anxiety, impulsivity, uncontrollable anger, or low self-confidence can be as painful, if not more so, than physical illness; they can also create serious relationship and work difficulties. I have over 25 years of experience and I have helped many adults, adolescents, and couples who had received limited or no benefit from previous therapists, other doctors, or medications. I work well with people who are skeptical of, or intimidated by, talk therapy.

Listening defines my approach to your treatment. A major difference in working with a psychoanalyst as opposed to other mental health practitioners is the careful, consistent, deep attention a psychoanalyst gives to listening. Change can occur because the first emphasis of this treatment is understanding, rather than feeling pressured to "do" something. Psychoanalysts develop this skill by engaging in extensive institute training beyond that required for their license. My goal is for you to achieve substantive, durable change through a collaborative approach to understanding the deeper meanings and causes of problems you face.

Peer Relationships in New York

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in New York

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in New York

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.
