I approach treatment as a growth opportunity for my adult patients. Therapy hinges on the rapid development of a treatment alliance and I make a special effort to help patients feel comfortable and "open up." As a psychodynamic therapist I base my treatment approach on insight and self-understanding. Knowledge is indeed power, and my patients almost always become more effective in the world and in their close relationships. My approach to treatment is depth-oriented, but also practical and challenging. I work most effectively with patients who are intelligent, active, and "in the world."

My approach is generally psychodynamic; tilizing behavioral and cognitive techniques if the treatment requires.
WHY THERAPY? Finding a therapist or counselor can be an anxiety-provoking pursuit and a fairly confusing, & stressful one too. In my experience, people seek treatment for a wide variety of reasons such as depression, anxiety/stress, relationship problems, parenting difficulties, low self-esteem, and so on. Seeking therapy is an act of maturity and strength! It says that you recognize that you are unhappy or dissatisfied with some aspect of your life and that you ultimately want to function and feel better.

I believe that treatment works best when it is tailored to the personality and individual needs of each client. Rather than relying on one theoretical perspective, I utilize a multi-modal approach, which consistently yields faster and longer-lasting results. My approach to treatment is grounded in psychodynamic and inter-personal theory, which I integrate with cognitive-behavioral (CBT) and solution-focused techniques. I have extensive experience dealing with a variety of psychological problems, including depression, anxiety, and trauma, as well as work-related, phase of life, marital, and family issues.

I work with adults, adolescents, and couples. I am active in my work; I clarify for each person what is important to her. My orientation is psychodynamic; I explore past history connected to the present and open the possibility of finding out who you are, how you arrived here, and where you are going. Crises in development and transition are important, opportunities for change. These are good moments to enter therapy. Times of depletion or feeling stuck are also important moments to initiate change. I'm here to help. It is important that you feel I understand you correctly, as you see yourself.

My approach is based on psychodynamic practices, deep empathy, Buddhist philosophy, mindfulness, and the body-mind connection.
At some point along the way, we all struggle with something. Family, career, relationships, depression, anxiety---something---and we need help to get unstuck and move towards living a more satisfying and authentic life. This is where psychotherapy comes in. I truly believe in its power to bring about personal transformation, help us better understand ourselves, and work through life's difficulties. Life ain't easy, and often, seeking help isn't either. But finding a therapist that you feel comfortable with is the courageous first step.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Lower Manhattan, New York, 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.
