My Approach to Helping

Finding the right therapist can be life-changing! Making the decision to get help from a total stranger is a huge step! I understand how crippling anxiety can be. Most people believe therapy is about eliminating stress and burden. To me, therapy should help you re-align the weight you’re carrying.

I provide therapy to adults and adolescents in Baltimore. I specialize in PTSD, anxiety, and depression; with a specific interest in men's health. I am also passionate about working with individuals struggling with their spirituality. Particularly individuals who are ambivalent about Judaism, and their Jewish identity.

Many of us struggle with understanding how our body actually responds to trauma. Using a mindfulness-based body-centered approach, I assist clients in recognizing the connection between their bodies and the trauma they’ve endured. I guide you through identifying the life events that trigger these symptoms, and together we’ll establish safe coping strategies.
