Do you need stress relief? Is anxiety intruding into your life? Do you sometimes feel low and have no where positive to turn? My practice will help to alleviate and solve these sometimes staggering life problems. I use a holistic and warm approach to address many of life's challenges- whether with relationships, individual identity, or with family needs. We will focus on developing a vibrant, well-related, and meaning self. I offer effective short term therapy, as well as longer partnerships aimed at developing a positive and fulfilled identity. Invest in yourself- together we'll find the path forward so you can flourish.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist (NY and CT) providing both effective psychotherapy and evaluation. My practice, Bedford Psychology, is designed to be a place of change, healing, and support. We will use insightful and cognitive strategies to handle complex relationship matters, anxiety, and depression, in effective, beneficial, and positive ways.
As an experienced psychologist, I understand what makes people and relationships work well. Together, we'll explore your concerns so that you can reestablish and develop better overall health, well being, and joy. You can become the person you want to be, leaving the anxiety, relationship problems, and depressive experiences behind.
