My Approach to Helping

Beginning or resuming psychotherapy is a deeply personal choice that is often met with complicated and sometimes even conflicting emotions. I believe that in order for people to make the best use of psychotherapy, they need to feel respected, safe, and supported within the therapeutic relationship. This lays the foundation upon which one can better understand themselves and in turn grow. My practice aims to assist people with improving the quality of their interpersonal relationships, deepening their understanding of the familialrelational context in which they were raised, and living a more fulfilling life.

I am affiliated with the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy and have extensive experience working with depression, anxiety, addiction, griefloss, and chronic illness (particularly HIV & AIDS). My clinical approach draws upon the theoretical ideas of the relational, interpersonal, and harm reduction philosophies as well as self psychology and object relations.

During your consultation, we will collaborate to identify the aspects in your life that have led you to therapy, begin the development of a therapeutic relationship, and develop goals for change. I look forward to hearing from you and welcome any questions you may have about psychotherapy or my practice.

I am a Certified Daring Way? Facilitator. Through discussion, video, and a variety of written and creative exercises this group is designed to assist members in arriving at a better understanding of the barriers to their connection with others and improving upon the life they live. If you have been struggling within an important area of your life ( relationships. professionally, parenting, etc.), this process is designed to help you access the courage to live in a more fulfilling way. Group participants self select which area of their life that they would like to work through in each cycle of The Daring Way. See flyers in photo gallery for more information or visit my website for upcoming group information. Registration is now open for my Daring in NYC Winter 2019 cycle. Space is limited... so sign up now! Registration closes one week prior to the scheduled start of group.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Being a therapist is an especially unique and exceptional role to play in relation to another person's life. I am honored to work with people around some of the most intimate details of their life and take that responsibility very seriously. I believe that an optimal level of trust must be established in order to allow the therapeutic alliance to develop. I enjoy feeling challenged by my work with clients while also cherishing the ability to bear witness to the growth and increased fulfillment that I've been able to observe my patients to experience.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I believe that ambivalence to begin andor return to therapy is both natural and welcomed. With beginning anything new, there often comes a sense of hesitation, so why wouldn't the same experience relate to embarking on a process as personal as psychotherapy? My suggestion is to give it a try. Ambivalence is only something to work to understand better, so let's get curious about it together.
