The complexities of human nature is something that many of us grapple with.  Therapy, although seemingly scary, intimidating and overwhelming at first, can lead to change, growth and a high degree of satisfaction when an individual is willing to look at themselves in a new light.  I believe in treatment that is collaborative which encompasses conversational dynamic.  I provide individual, family and couples sessions for various issues, some of which include; anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, communication problems, life transitions, issues with interpersonal relationships, work stress and other stress related issues.  Treatment techniiques include, but are not limited to, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), psychodynamic and strengths based.  My goal is to help clients achieve more confident, successful and fulfilling lives.

Finding a therapist can be a daunting process.  I believe it is important to feel at ease in order to do the work therapy entails.  I provide a comfortable, down-to-earth environment that will allow you to develop insight, find more choices in your life, and to build self confidence.  I have advanced training in psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy, however unlike classical analysis I do not act as a blank screen and have a contemporary approach.  I provide feedback and believe in mutual collaboration between patient and therapist.  I also have a Manhattan practice at 380 Lafayette Street (corner of Great Jones).

I've been in private practice as a psychotherapist and consultant for over fifteen years.  I work most effectively with clients who seek active engagement with their problems.  I bring a great deal of empathy and warmth to my work, but I also know how/when to push my clients gently forward so real change can take place.  Once I understand how you see your problems and what you've already tried to address them, I'll draw on a rang of techniques (traditional talk therapy, action-incorporating Psychodrama, cognitive-behavioral intervention, goal-oriented coaching) to create a process uniquely suited to your strengths and struggles.  We'll work together until you achieve your goals.  My specialty is action methods.  My unique approach incorporates role playing, meditation, creative arts approaches and mind-body techniques that help clients (especially those coping with trauma, chronic illness and/or relationship problems), foster mindfulness and achieve real change.  I have a B.A. from Yale College, a Masters in Social Work from Hunter College School of Social Work and extensive post-graduate training from the Ackerman Family and Psychodrama Training Institutes.  In addition to my office hours at Plaza Wellness, I see clients in Manhattan at my Herald Square office.  Feel free to get in touch and arrange for a free consultation.

My goal is to help you through whatever difficulties you are experiencing so that you can feel better about yourself, have better relationships, and experience more joy.  Over the past three years I've worked with a diverse community at Mount Sinai Hospital where I treat 9/11 first responders and clean-up workers suffering with the effects of trauma.  I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy as well as psychodynamic and insight-oriented approaches.  I will work with you to develop the therapy that fits you best.  I am especially interested in working with members of the LGBTQ community, people with chronic medical conditions, and people who have difficult family members.

I work with adults, young adults, and adolescents in individual psychotherapy to help clients learn to improve their own self awareness and insight. I maintain a relational and client-focused perspective, helping individuals go at their own pace to identify and articulate their unique needs and desires.  By being a completely non-judgmental sounding board, I am able to help support individuals dealing with many psychosocial and personal stressors.  Together, using a holistic approach, we will work to break down ingrained barriers and negative patterns in order to find sucess and positive progress in therapy.  

Finding a therapist can be hard, confusing and overwhelming process.  I try to do everything in my control to make it an easy and transparent process.  I now offer easy online self-scheduling! I also accept CIGNA health insurance plans and out of network insurance benefits. Check out my website to get started.
