More Info About My Practice

I am a psychotherapist specializing in individual talk therapy. I have worked with clients of all ages in clinical and educational settings. I have advanced training from The New York Counseling and Clinical Social Work Service. Take this next step - contact me to arrange a time to talk.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Therapy provides an opportunity to better understand thoughts, patterns, and behaviors. By connecting to your deepest self and increasing your awareness, internal discomfort can be alleviated. You will develop the tools necessary to make adjustments that will bring more meaning to your life. You can start living more in the moment, rather than dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. People of all ages benefit from talk therapy.
