My Approach to Helping

Maybe you feel like something has been holding you back from achieving your goals – feelings of depression or anxiety, thoughts of not being (blank) enough, pain from the past, or fear of the unknown.

Maybe you've attempted to make a change, on your own or with the help of someone else, only to find yourself stuck or reverting back to old behavior.

Maybe, you’ve even given up or lost hope that you’ll ever be able to change, find happiness and create the life you envision.

During sessions, I combine various techniques including CBT, Psychodynamic Therapy, transformational coaching, guided meditations, journaling exercises, and hypnosis to help clients uncover the deeper, underlying causes of the issues and challenges they are dealing with in different areas of life including relationships, career and mental health. Through our work together you'll be able to shift and eliminate the fears, blocks and limiting beliefs that are preventing you from moving forward, heal from past pain and trauma, and develop the tools, clarity and confidence you need to achieve your goals.

Whereas therapy can last years, I focus on helping clients get results in as little as one session.

More Info About My Practice

In addition to counseling and coaching, I also offer women's groups, workshops, hypnosis, and energy healing for a variety of issues including low self-esteem, feelings of unworthiness, depression, anxiety, physical pain, trauma, and relationship issues. All services are provided in Manhattan, Brooklyn, via phone, and Skype.

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

You're going through a transition: whether it's a breakup, a new career, or you're on the journey to rediscovering yourself, you need someone to help you navigate all the changes so you can regain stability in your life.

You're overwhelmed with negative emotions: you often feel sad, depressed, stressed, or anxious as a result of past andor current life experiences. You're ready to process and heal from those experiences so you can improve your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.

You feel stuck or stagnant in one or more areas of your life: your career is no longer fulfilling, your relationship lacks passion, and your finances have not improved. It seems as if you've reached your limit and you're so close to the problem that it's hard for you to come up with a solution on your own. You need someone to help you breakthrough to the next level.

You have blocks that keep you from achieving your goals: you know what you want, but you haven't been able to manifest it. You often get in your own way or self-sabotage every time you get close to achieving your goals.

You lack clarity about what you really want in life: you often feel as if this can't be it but you haven't quite been able to figure out what's missing from your life. You know you were created to be, do, and have more, but you're struggling with figuring out who you are and what your purpose is.

You need support: you often feel as if you don't fit in. Your friends and family don't always understand what you're going through. You need guidance from someone who can relate to your experiences and help you navigate through your challenges.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I know how difficult it can be to invest your time, energy, and money with someone you don't know. And it doesn't help that there are so many options to choose from including social workers, counselors, and life coaches. Having been a client myself I understand how important it is to have a therapist you feel a sense of connection to; someone who understands you; someone who is able to help you.

As a mental health counselor, transformational coach, and hypnotherapist my goal is to help clients achieve their goals in all areas of life. I combine various techniques including guided meditations, journaling exercises, NLP, tapping, Reiki, and hypnosis to help clients eliminate all the blocks and barriers that have been preventing them from achieving the changes they desire.

I've worked with clients who have struggled with issues such as depression and anxiety for years. They're always impressed with the results they're able to achieve after working with me for such a short time.

I would love to hear from you to see how I can help. Let's schedule a time to talk more.
