Do you feel anxious, sad or overwhelmed? Are you struggling with relationship or parenting issues? Do you strive for approval at the expense of expressing your authentic self? I believe we are all already whole, and I want to help you reconnect with that true self and improve your relationships. Together we will design goals and strategies so you can naturally heal and grow. I tailor my approach to each person, using a variety of methods including mindfulness, cognitive behavioral strategies and psychodynamic techniques. In couples work, you will find a deeper and closer connection together.
 
A lifelong New Yorker, I have 20+ years of experience as a psychotherapist. I provide an atmosphere that is collaborative, non-judgmental and supportive. I have training in chronic illness and wellness, focusing on the mind-body connection to help you replace negative thoughts with healthy ones and find more balance.
 
Together we will strive to help you find more self compassion, increase experiences of joy, and recognize deeper meaning in your life. Please visit my website UpperWestTherapy.com and request a free consultation. I hope to hear from you and look forward to helping you take the next step.
