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.

Life can be painful and complicated at times, and so often we react instead of respond to stress. Whether you are an adult, teen, or child, emotions can be complex to navigate and difficult to manage alone. My goal is to support you through difficult moments, help you build awareness and understanding for your behaviors and feelings, gain clarity in confusing times, better understand your relationships, and ultimately help you see life in clearer terms. As a collaborator on this journey, I aim to provide a nurturing and safe environment so that you may explore your internal nature and grow in all the ways you desire.

We're often stuck in patterned behaviors, thoughts, feelings, and relationships that only increases our distress and prevents us from being able to move forward.

I believe everyone has their own unique experience in therapy, and that one approach or theory does not fit all. Having said that, I believe the therapeutic relationship is central. We are hurt in relationships, and we are healed in relationships. A therapist's job is to provide an open space so that the client can express thoughts and feelings, and have the experience of being listened to without judgment. For children, it is to play freely in a safe space and be able to express without interruption or interpretation, and for the therapist to accompany them with genuine interest.

I am an existential psychotherapist located in Brooklyn, New York. I believe that at their very core, human beings desire to live meaningful, spiritually-connected lives. Despite living in a world with unprecedented wealth & creature comforts, so many of us are suffering. So many of us try and find comfort from that suffering in distractions like alcohol or television. But still, that innate dissatisfaction with our everyday lives persists. Using an existential, spiritual approach, I will help you engage your suffering in a fresh way so you can live a more present, contented existence.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Brooklyn, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Brooklyn are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Brooklyn. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Brooklyn

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Brooklyn you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Brooklyn and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Brooklyn or family therapy in Brooklyn.
