Getting help when you need it is important but can be a difficult first step. I am a highly qualified, experienced and certified psychotherapist who can work with you in an individual or group setting to help you get through your issues and make changes in your life.
I work with patients, from adolescents to seniors, in one-on-one Individual as well as in Group Therapy.  I conduct Couples Therapy for those entering into marriage as well as for married couples who are facing problems together. 

I maintain my primary office in Santa Monica, California and a secondary office in New York City where I see patients once a month. I also work with patients online using Skype and have clients as far away as London and Hong Kong.
