About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    warm, gentle, and honest, with appropriate humor. My goal is to guide you in gaining insight and skills as we challenge patterns and create change.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I provide care with therapies that are structured and actionable, focusing on behaviors and concrete skills, as well as those that are more exploratory and insight-oriented. I balance these based on your preferences and needs.

  • Together, we will:

    identify patterns contributing to feeling stuck and give you tools that are a good fit in helping you build the life and relationships you want. We may also process past experiences or relationships that have contributed to your present experiences.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    are struggling with fears/anxiety, stress, anger, or sadness that impact their life and relationships. I also work with people who would like to feel more in touch with their emotions and openness with others.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I love helping people better understand themselves and using this understanding to create wanted change in their life.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    I offer telehealth Monday through Friday and in-person sessions (currently full) in Midtown Manhattan on Thursdays.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I approach everyone I work with as a unique individual and tailor interventions and skills during our work together to make sure what we're doing is effective and a good fit.
