"Psychotherapy opens space for exploration, healing and growth, acceptance that opens more space for being oneself or taking risks with new possibilities. One can enter this space because they are stuck in painful patterns or relationships, anxious,depressed or seeking to understand themselves better. Together, we bring understanding to a patient's conflicting needs, desires & loyalties; and transform difficulties into strengths & gifts. Patients find my non-judgmental, warm, creative attitude helps them face their darkest shadows and develop new resources. I now teach Psychoanalysis and case formulation at the LP program at GC."

"People often have a sense that they are capable of more, that some things are just outside of reach and they don't know why, or that they are in discomfort for reasons obscure to them. Sometimes people are confronted with difficult situations that feel impossible to deal with or that cause them conflict, anguish or confusion. Psychotherapy can help people to identify inconsistencies, resistances, behaviors, styles of living, conflicts, stresses and other factors that impede optimal functioning, effectiveness and experience."

"I have been in practice for over 25 years and find my work very rewarding. I believe that therapy can help people feel more confident about their place in the world--more confident that the balance of goodness within themselves will allow them to go forward with their lives. I feel respect and gratitude towards my patients; their readiness to explore their areas of vulnerability has helped me to understand similar vulnerabilities within myself. I have learned from many sources; in this sense my approach is eclectic. It is important to tailor frequency and duration of treatment for each patient."

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in New York or for a New York play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
