My Approach to Helping

I approach psychotherapy as a creative, collaborative undertaking between therapist and client with the goal of creating a safe, healing relationship through which clients can discover and mobilize their deepest capacities for transformation.

My approach is psychodynamic and relational, and I am also trained in body-based and mindfulness interventions. While the exploration of the interweavings of the past and present is a crucial aspect of psychotherapy, I am also committed to supporting my clients in identifying goals and developing concrete plans for working strategically towards their accomplishment.

I approach the human mind, heart, psyche and body as a unified whole. Working with breath and movement, along with words, to facilitate the exploration, processing and expression of a full range of emotion, clients can discover new reserves of strength, meaning and self-acceptance.

I have 20+ years experience working with adults, couples, adolescents and children, including the 0-5 population. I am experienced working with issues of depression, anxiety, trauma and loss, as well as eating disorders and body image issues. I have long experience working with children and their parents around behavioral and regulatory issues, adoption, confidence and self-esteem as well as issues surrounding divorce and co-parenting.

More Info About My Practice

I am committed to making psychotherapy available to all those who need it, and therefore reserve spaces in my practice for sliding scale fees. My monthly statement is also suitable for submitting claims for out-of-network insurance coverage and flexible spending accounts. I have offices in both Manhattan's Upper West Side and Park Slope in Brooklyn.
