I am a psychotherapist specializing in individual and couples therapy, and maintain a full-time private practice in the financial district of Manhattan. I also offer consulting services to businesses, government agencies, and the military; (please see "Consulting" page for more information).
With over fifteen years of experience as a therapist, and as a graduate of NYU School of Social Work, I have a private practice working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Imago Couples Therapy, EFT, EMDR, and Hypnotherapy.
While practicing law, I grew more intrigued by peoples' emotional struggles that were part and parcel of their legal battles. Feeling compelled to work with people in that capacity, I got retrained and re-credentialed as a psychotherapist.
I work in an interactive, solution-focused manner. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with people to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to achieving.
