Hello and welcome. I am a psychotherapist serving both individuals and couples in and around New York City, as well as online as needed.
As an experienced psychotherapist, it is my honor to assist you in exploring your core issues and to move toward a healthy, fulfilling life. Utilizing a variety of approaches including mindfulness, cognitive therapy and psychodynamic therapy, I will provide treatment that is customized to meet your unique circumstances.
With honesty and compassion I create an an open channel of communication between us. The goal of our time together will be to help you develop the skills needed to overcome the problems you are now facing and to live a happier life.
As an experienced therapist, it is my honor to assist you in exploring your core issues and move toward a healthy, fulfilling life.
I offer therapy sessions in New York City, New York. Online sessions are available as well.
I will use a variety of techniques to address your unique needs. The foundation of my approach is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. We then work toward a tailored plan which can incorporate mindfulness, insight-oriented therapy, cognitive restructuring, and other cognitive modalities.
In order for therapy to be successful, it is imperative we establish a client/therapist relationship that is supportive and honest. In fact, it is the nature – and the quality – of our relationship that will determine the success of your overall therapy goals. The success of the ‘meeting of the minds’ with your psychotherapist is the most accurate predictor of a positive, healthy outcome to the hard work you put in towards your happiness.
There is a large body of research that supports cognitive and mindfulness therapy. It reveals that individuals who practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal. It would be my honor and mission to help you move past what’s blocking you, and to reach your potential as an individual and in your relationships.
In addition to my work with individuals, I specialize in treating couples working through difficult relationships. I use a combination of cognitive restructuring and insight oriented therapy to help my clients grow. My aim is to help my couples develop the skills they need to overcome the difficult emotions and events of their past and live more fulfilling lives together.
