As a licensed psychotherapist with extensive post-graduate training, I help clients heal from traumatic experiences, develop more satisfying relationships, identify longstanding problematic behavior patterns and develop healthy work/life balance. I work with individuals who feel overwhelmed, anxious, unhappy, or confused about current life situations, as well as those struggling with self-defeating patterns and addictions. An important focus of my practice is working with individuals and couples experiencing dysfunctional dynamics and unresolved trauma symptoms using a combination of psychodynamic psychotherapy and EMDR. My approach is that of collaboration, acceptance and the non-judgmental exploration of obstacles that keep clients feeling stuck or unable to live a full and meaningful life. Please send me an email to make an initial appointment.

I address symptoms using somatic-focused therapies such as EMDR as well as Mindfulness, Psychodynamic/Relational therapy, CBT and DBT techniques, Coaching and Focusing techniques. I am an experienced psychotherapist in New York City specializing in the treatment of performance problems, anxiety, depression, trauma resolution, addictions, compulsions, eating disorders, self-esteem problems, transitions, crisis counseling, couples therapy and relationship difficulties. I have extensive post-graduate training and experience helping adolescents, adults and couples discover ways to live creatively and authentically. I provide both short and long-term treatment. I've had great success using EMDR therapy and other somatic techniques for clients struggling with PTSD or those in need of trauma resolution. Please email to learn how we might work together.

One speciality is working with smart, creative, successful professionals, who feel they are not living up to their potential in work or personal relationships. Life may be further complicated by self-esteem difficulties, loneliness, disappointment, sadness, loss, past traumas, self-defeating patterns and marital difficulties. Many cope with challenges by turning to alcohol and other substance and behavioral addictions and compulsions. I teach my clients specific techniques to improve mood, reduce anxiety, increase self-confidence and master emotionally difficult situations, all of which result in greater peace of mind.

In my work with relationship dynamics, I treat both gay and straight couples, struggling with communication and infidelity issues drawing from the work of the Gottman Institute and Emotionally Focused Therapy, helping clients experience enhanced communication, understand problem dynamics and triggers and improve intimacy and sexual concerns.

Blending psychodynamic psychotherapy, EMDR therapy, CBT, DBT skills, Non-Violent Communication (NVC), coaching and mindfulness techniques in an individualized approach, I am able to address the following concerns:

Simple and complex traumas
Eating disorders
Body image
Low self-esteem
Identity issues
Relationship conflicts
Intimacy problems
Parenting support
Career issues
Creativity blocks
Grief counseling
Substance abuse and addictions using a modified EMDR method called the Feeling State Addiction Protocol (FSAP)

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

it is important to find a therapist with the training and skills that are suited to address your particular needs. The most important factor in choosing a therapist is to find someone that you trust and can share your concerns. Much of the healing occurs in the context of the relationship--a good client/therapist fit is key. A face-to-face consultation is the best way to learn about and interview a potential therapist.
