My Approach to Helping

Finding a therapist can be a daunting process. I believe it is important to feel at ease in order to do the work therapy entails. I provide a comfortable, down-to-earth environment that will allow you to develop insight, find more choices in your life, and to build self confidence. I have advanced training in psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy, however unlike classical analysis I do not act as a blank screen and have a contemporary approach. I provide feedback and believe in mutual collaboration between patient and therapist. I also believe it is important to modify my approach based on the needs of the individual.

More Info About My Practice

New bereavement group forming in September 2015. The group aims to provide a safe and therapeutic space for people grieving the death of a loved one. The group is open to anyone experiencing a loss, regardless of the relationship to the person or the amount of time that has passed since the loss. We hope the group will also represent a variety of ages and backgrounds among its participants.

The facilitators of the group are Kim Davis, LCSW and Matt Botwin, LCSW. Kim Davis has led several post-9/11 groups in her work with the FDNY Counseling Service Unit and AIDS-related bereavement groups as a social worker for the Community Healthcare Network and AIDS Service Center, Matt Botwin has led many bereavement groups for children, teens, and adults through his 12 years of work at the Comfort Zone Camp.

The group will meet Wednesday evenings beginning April 16 from 7:30 to 8:45 pm at 611 Broadway, Suite 731 (corner of Houston) for 12 weeks. The fee is $75 per session.

Groups I Work With

    In addition to my private practice, I have worked in a variety of agency settings and have experience with a range of issues (depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, identity, relationships, life transition, chronic illness, stress, divorce/separation, retirement, addiction and anger). I also hold a Masters in Non-Profit Management. For the past 6 years I have been working as a Program Director for the FDNY, providing counseling and therapeutic services to firefighters post-9/11.
