As a licensed psychotherapist, I offer a space in which to deepen your awareness and make positive changes toward greater well-being. My approach is warm, caring and interactive. I specialize in issues ranging from depression and anxiety to women's health, relationships, career and life transitions. In addition to years of psycho-dynamic training, I'm also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and several other modalities. Since every individual is unique, rather than using a one-size-fits all technique, I draw from my extensive training and experience to tailor the treatment to fit the individual.

As a coach, I help people define specific goals- whether in career, relationships or dating- and I help them gain the confidence to achieve those goals. In addition to my work with individuals in my private practice, I provide stress reduction and mindfulness skills training to organizations and corporations across business sectors. I am currently an associate with the NYC division of Leading Minds Executive Coaching, where we offer a team-based approach to Executive Coaching, helping employees and executives manage stress and improve communication and leadership skills.

Whether through my work as a therapist or a coach, my passion is helping people gain the confidence they need to achieve their goals. I believe that with hard work and the right guidance, everyone has the potential for success, regardless of past challenges or circumstances. I look forward to joining you on your journey toward achieving that success.
