I provide clients with individualized, interactive therapy. My specialty is working with young through mid-life adults who have been dealing with a range of issues: depression, anxiety, relationships, natural life transitions (e.g engagement/marriage, career change), substance abuse, and trauma. My therapeutic work is a combination of psycho-dynamic and cognitive behavioral approaches. I offer individuals a reprieve from the busyness and the stress of daily life in a warm, "safe" environment in which I work to build a rapport with each client based on empathy and compassion. I maintain a high level of commitment to my clients in their journeys through personal growth and change.

I am a graduate of the Columbia University School of Social Work and have trained at the Ackerman Institute for the Family. In an effort to continue my education, I attend workshops and presentations to stay current on research in the field. Please feel free to contact me for additional information and to learn more about my practice.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

I believe that psychotherapy can help individuals increase self-awareness that will facilitate growth and change in their lives. Providing individuals with non-judgmental feedback can help them build self-esteem and overcome personal obstacles. Psychotherapy can be productive means for helping individuals develop more effective communication skills that will enrich their relationships and help them navigate more optimally through daily life

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

I recognize that whether one is beginning therapy for the first time or continuing treatment with a new practitioner,it is not uncommon to have a range of concerns about the experience. Issues relating to the rapport with the therapist, trust, comfort disclosing personal information and expressing feelings, the effectiveness of the treatment, and the time length of the commitment may come to mind.

I impress upon clients that I am non-judgmental in my approach and do not have any preconceived expectations. If an individual has reservations about treatment, I often suggest that he/she commit to three sessions before coming to any final conclusions regarding therapy. I emphasize that the therapy process is about the individual's needs and that I will respect and support his/her decisions regarding treatment.
