I am a New York City psychotherapist and psychoanalyst, centrally
located off Madison Square Park in the Flatiron District / Union Square.
It is my perspective that we all have the ability to heal from our pain.
As a therapist, I am committed to fostering hope and reducing suffering.
Throughout my many years of practice, I have seen adults and
adolescents, both individuals and couples, who are experiencing a wide
range of difficulties that include relationship and family issues, loneliness,
grief, feeling overwhelmed or stuck, self criticism, excessive worry or
guilt, hopelessness, self harm, management of anger, identity confusion, creative blocks, life transitions,
intimacy issues, and school and work stress. Sometimes you can feel depressed or anxious, but are unable to locate the source of your discomfort. We can work together to understand those feelings, even if you do not yet have words to describe them.
I have had extensive clinical training in several psychotherapy modalities, which allows me to use my expertise to optimize your therapy based on your unique and specific needs. I have successfully treated individuals with mood and anxiety disorders, trauma history, dual diagnosis, and a broad spectrum of other disorders. I believe part of this success is my focus on you as a person, and not solely on the issue or disorder.
Beginning therapy can cause anxiety, and I am always inspired by the courage it takes for someone to face their difficulties. It is my nature to be honest and nonjudgmental, which helps build a trusting alliance and the foundation for growth. My goal is to ensure that you are highly supported and deeply understood. We will be partners in exploring your life narrative, gaining insight that can facilitate lasting changes and the ability to lead a more engaged, fulfilled, and meaningful life.
