My Approach to Helping

It is my passion and honor to provide higher-quality counseling sessions to a wide variety of clients from many cultures, religions, and ethnicities. The self-affirming goal during our counseling sessions is to provide you with helpful support and understanding for renewed health and optimism. Our enlightened efforts together also guide you toward finding paths to greater self-fulfillment in relationships, career and personal growth.

Whether or not presently in counseling, perhaps you owe yourself, and your loved ones, the opportunity to invest in several special counseling sessions, which I can provide (917-992-5334). Our counseling sessions will provide valuable knowledge, feedback and unique tools for ascendancy in meeting and possibly even exceeding your life's goals. Although no guarantees can truly exist in counseling (or life itself), still, your choosing a talented, widely recognized and experienced counselor to guide you is most often the wisest, most productive and joyful choice a caring person can pursue.

We, as caring professionals, know that self-empowerment and deeper interpersonal satisfaction (intimacy) are well-worth advancing in our lives. With compassionate and knowledgeable guidance, these worthy pursuits can often occur, and your personal growth can be refined further during the process of enlightened and effective counseling.

In the interest of better serving your needs and practical concerns, I also specialize in providing short-term effective counseling wherever possible or desired by you. This is an efficient and economical way of moving forward your
personal goals within 4 to 10 sessions.

I welcome you to set-up a counseling-consultation session with me, at your earliest convenience, to explore your "personal growth plan" that will help us understand and resolve the most important concerns and issues in your life. I can assure you that I will give you the total attention, compassion, respect and helpful feedback (suggestions and strategy) that you deserve, as we start the process of productive counseling. For more information, please call me @ 917-992-5334.
