Whether you are in the midst of a crisis, stuck in repetitive self-destructive patterns or dealing with a relationship problem, I am committed to helping you work through the psychological barriers that interfere and guiding you toward greater clarity, satisfaction, and fulfillment.

I am a seasoned psychologist who works with adults of all ages. My treatment approach is empathic, collaborative and pragmatic. We look at what your early experience can teach us about your personality, relationship patterns, and current struggles. We also use our relationship as a source of information and support. By applying the self-awareness you gain in our work together, we unearth long-standing behavior patterns and perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more gratifying life.

While we can't change the past we can change our relationship to the past and work together to better understand and resolve the challenges in your life. I do my best to help you develop greater trust in yourself and others, greater self-confidence and healthy self-assertion. My objective is to assist you in finding the resources within yourself to achieve your true potential, accomplish personal and professional goals and lead a life worth celebrating.

My work is a passion and I consider it an honor and a privilege to facilitate your journey.

More Info About My Practice

Finding a therapist with whom you can feel comfortable can feel daunting. I work with you to create a confidential, safe relationship. Together, we determine your goals for treatment and a plan for implementing them.

People who work with me often comment that I am compassionate, easy to talk to about difficult concerns and a good listener. I respect my patients and am nonjudgmental about their problems.

I offer individual, couples and group psychotherapy. I am also certified in EMDR, a mind-body technique that helps accelerate the healing of impasses and traumas that do not resolve through talk therapy alone.

My office is conveniently located on the upper west side of Manhattan.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

My practice specializations are early adult and mid life transitions and grief and loss, including death of a loved one, divorce, chronic illness and pregrancy loss. If you are in a life crisis or wanting to make a change in love or work, I can assist you in finding your way. If you are grieving a loss, I can help you cope. I am also a certified in EMDR, a mind-body technique that can augment talk therapy. EMDR accelerates the healing of trauma, PTSD, grief, phobias and performance anxiety.
