As someone who came to this country as an adult (from Israel), and grew up speaking another language (Hebrew), I know that there is never just one way of seeing things, never only one perspective. Your culture makes a difference. Your language makes a difference. Your sexual orientation, gender identity. Your DNA. Your soul. Your upbringing. My role is to listen carefully to how you experience the world, how you relate to others, how you think of yourself--and then reflect back to you what I heard, so you can decide what you wish to keep, what you wish to adjust, and what you wish to let go of.

Collaborative by nature, I aim to provide a caring and safe space where you feel validated, valued, and are open to explore new parts of yourself. My understanding of personal change and growth is grounded in both psychodynamic and systems theories. Together, we focus on how some of your early history may inform your present challenges while also acknowledging the impact of the familial, institutional, and cultural systems in which you live. In addition, I believe that a consistent sense of curiosity and authentic presence with you, where multiple meanings can be explored, is paramount to growth-promoting and healing therapy.

During these uncertain times, getting extra support can be vital. Anxiety, depression, all the unknowns have been chipping away at many of us. Teletherapy helps. Many of my clients are adults asking the "who am I" questions. Now more than ever. They’ve come to me to explore & discover themselves, perhaps for the first time or perhaps as part of a lifelong process. Whether a relationship, a loss or trauma, being new to NY, or feeling stuck in a career first sent them to me, what they all have in common is a desire to be and feel more authentic, more connected, more safe, and to live life with more ease & joy, more passion & purpose.

I am a psychotherapist specializing in growth-oriented counseling with adults & couples. My clients typically work to increase emotional awareness of their present choices or patterns which lead to various forms of distress. This pain often causes significant disruption in their social, work, physical lives or intimate relationships. Early childhood experiences influence how we all experience our lives today. Insights and associations during talk therapy often bring previously unseen options to light that lead to healthier choices and decreased stress and pain. These sessions take place weekly over the course of many months or more to provide the foundation of lasting growth.

My therapeutic approach is based on a psychodynamic perspective with a strength-based, ego-supportive, and empathic stance. I am mindful of each individual’s unique needs and circumstances with a strong awareness of socioeconomic, cultural, and environmental factors that contribute to various experiences and stressors. I integrate nonverbal and verbal aspects of the therapeutic process through the use of creative arts as I've found both to be effective in exploring one’s unconscious mind and understanding how it may be affecting conscious behaviors and thought processes.

“I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason. Bringing something we must learn. And we are led to those who help us most to grow if we let them and we help them in return“.I’d like to thank Stephen Schwartz for borrowing his lyrics from Wicked, as I’ve always seen the journey of therapy as the need to grow and learn how to navigate life’s many challenges. In our fast paced society, many people feel inadequate, worried, and that they go through the motions of daily living. Children often face impossible tasks and are made to feel “less than”. Others have suffered from trauma and need help to heal from suffering.
