"At times, therapy can feel necessary in the short-term to help navigate a crisis situation. Other times, it can be a longer process of self-exploration and growth. My goal is to help you tell your story, figure out how to overcome stuckness, and live a more meaningful life in whatever way you define that. We will pay close attention to the patterns that frustrate you, the things you want but can't seem to get, the parts of yourself you want to express but remain hidden or misunderstood."

"All kinds of things bring people into therapy. Many of my clients are struggling with some kind of relationship issue, whether it’s a stressful workplace dynamic, a conflict with a partner, friends or family, or challenges navigating the dating world. Many also feel stuck in some indescribable way – in their careers, with unhealthy habits or with feeling like they’re somehow not in the driver’s seat. I see myself as a facilitator and a guide. I’ll help you understand all the different parts of yourself, connect you to your inner voice, and learn to recognize the relationship patterns you find yourself repeating."

If you're transgender or are looking for help with transgender issues in New York or for a New York transgender therapist these professionals provide transgender counselling and transgender friendly care.

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