My Approach to Helping


Many of my clients feel they are doing something over and over that's not moving them forward. Perhaps as a young professional, you struggle to find work that is both meaningful and gives you joy. Or maybe you're dating but it feels utterly hopeless and you wonder if you'll always be alone. As an NYU writing professor and former HS English teacher, I also connect easily with teens and college students, with over 20 years in the classroom working with students from all kinds of backgrounds. And I work extensively with couples, married and unmarried alike, using the Gottman Method.

Do any of the following resonate?

-Going through waves of feeling fine and then underappreciated at work or school
-Not having time or energy to take care of yourself the way you know you deserve
-Bad self-talk or intrusive thoughts
-Stressed trying to figure out what's next so you can finally do something you find is meaningful and makes money
-Parenting feels difficult, you worry about not feeling present, question if you understand your kid, or are overwhelmed managing confusing and hurtful behavior
-Your complicated relationship with your parents feels exhausting, hopeless, and as if they are never going to meet your needs
-Feeling overwhelmed with work, life, kids, family, your relationship
-Stressed, anxious, and feeling like something is not working. It makes sense if life is overwhelming with everything that's going on. And it can be challenging to figure out how to get unstuck on your own.

Even if things feel challenging, therapy can help.

What makes me different from other therapists is my focus on immediate solutions. You won’t have to wait to start figuring stuff out, we will start making progress in session one.

During sessions, you will have space to be heard and understood.
I don’t just listen and say a few things at the end. There are therapists like that, excellent ones. That’s not me. I mirror back what you tell me so that I understand you. I ask questions. I make important observations. I am engaged and fully present in the experience with you.

Let’s work together to get you in touch with what matters to you and your life and reach your unique goals.

Couples Counseling:

Something is not working in your relationship. Or perhaps passion has faded. Maybe the arguments have become more frequent and repetitive. Perhaps you used to feel so connected but now you don't even seem to understand each other. Are you wondering if you and your partner still seek the same things?

I Help Couples Heal From Issues Such As:
Blaming one another, and keeping score of wrongs.
Criticism has become the norm in your relationship.
Lack of emotional support, leaving you alone when you are needing connection.
Fights resulting from a lack of clarity around money and finances.
Assuming your partner has lost the ability to care for you or grow.
Lack of intimacy or sex leaves you both feeling unloved.
Avoiding talking about the real problems.
Some couples who begin work with me know what the trouble is but it keeps coming up again and again. Others don?t understand why their relationship has become so hard.

In couples counseling, I will help you build the loving relationships you've always wanted. And through the process, you will gain the skills to communicate (and love) more effectively with your partner and feel more connected.
