I honor each individual's unique characteristics and strengths. In that spirit, I tailor my methods to the unique needs of the client - utilizing cognitive behavior therapy, psychodynamic, and humanistic modes. I am warm, encouraging and a strong motivator.

My extensive background as a psychiatric social worker helps me to advocate for my clients and has provided me with special skills and life experiences that I bring to my psychotherapy practice.

More Info About My Practice

In my practice I see individuals and families - including senior citizens - dealing with a large spectrum of emotional issues. I have special interests in bereavement therapy, trauma, life transitions, working with the elderly, and adoption/infertility counseling.

I offer evening, daytime and Sunday hours.
When possible, I make house calls to elderly or infirm clients in my local area.

My office in Briarwood, Queens is near the Kew Gardens, Forest Hills, Hillcrest & Kew Gardens Hills areas.


Organizational memberships include: Give an Hour, a network of therapists providing free counseling services to returning troops and their families; American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress, National Association of Social Workers

I am conversant in both Hebrew and Yiddish as supplementary languages.

Please call or email me with any questions. Either I or my assistant will get back to you as soon as possible.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love helping my clients realize their potential by getting in touch with the essence of who they are. We need to discard the myths that we have developed and accepted about ourselves. It is exciting to see people of any age bring about change in their lives and patterns of thinking.

What Makes up a Problem?

I believe in the principle of "nurture through nature". We are all born with a particular temperament and genetic makeup. But these factors alone do not determine our future or our emotional strength. Early and later life experiences and nurturing are essential influences in our lives.
