My Approach to Helping

I am a New York State licensed clinical psychologist with over seventeen years of training and experience. I provide psychotherapy services for children & parents, teens and adults and have offices in Hartsdale, Southern Westchester and on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I bring to the therapeutic process a focused presence, a sense of humor, and a strong belief that growth emerges from insight and self-knowledge. A sense of safety in the psychologist-client relationship is essential to bringing about positive change and actualizing life goals. In the psychological testing portion of my practice, I look at the whole child-individual in the context of family, social, school and work environments, identifying strengths as well as weaknesses. I treat students, parents, couples, professionals, and artists. My work is psychodynamically informed, interactive, collaborative, warm, and respectful. * I treat in English and in German.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

If you're in your 40s, 50s or beyond, you've probably come to think of yourself as a certain type of person: you're either outgoing or reserved, easy-going or a bit high strung; maybe you're an optimist or maybe you're someone who always worries about things turning out right. At this point in your life, you've likely also become used to inhabiting certain roles in your life and in your community. You've developed a particular way of handling challenges and stresses and have certain communication styles in your relationships.

Sometimes I hear people say, even the ones that state that they feel quite dissatisfied with how they view themselves or how they feel in and about their roles, that change is going to be too hard, or that it may be too late. Others might worry that if they changed, this may complicate other relationships in their lives.

Here's the good news: It's not too late! Contemporary views of development emphasize the potential for change throughout adult life, even up to very late in life. In my experiences as a therapist working with my clients, I know that positive change and growth are possible at any stage in a person's life. The years of midlife and beyond can be a unique and rich stage of development. It can be a time for you to reap the benefits of your life experiences and to use them to help bring about positive change. At this point in their lives, many people are starting a new job or are pursuing additional education, instead of thinking about retirement. Some are even planning for an extended work life.

Individual therapy can be a powerful avenue to help bring about change during this time. Successful therapy can bring new awareness and insight into your actions, thoughts, and feelings and help you learn and practice more effective ways of thinking and behaving. My style is interactive, warm, collaborative, and respectful. My clinical approach is flexible, as I employ a range of modalities, adjusting to what best serves the client?s specific situation and needs. Developing practical and concrete strategies to help you reach your goals will be an important part of our work together. Please contact me for more information andor to schedule a consultation.
