  1. I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) practicing in New York City. I have over 20 years of experience working successfully with adults suffering from depression, anxiety and who are experiencing problems in their relationships. I work with men and women of all ages and backgrounds across a spectrum of challenges including:

-Life & Career Transitions
-Aging/Care-giving Concerns
-Pregnancy

Therapy begins where you are.

People seek therapy for many different reasons; whether you are dealing with a particular crisis, managing difficult or uncomfortable emotions, or seeking to know more about yourself, therapy can lead to a better understanding of who we are and what has shaped us. Through examining personal histories the process of discovery begins.

Sometimes we are playing out roles that are based in old patterns that no longer work. I work with clients to uncover the stories that they have told themselves or have been told to them about who they are that keep them stuck. Therapy can allow you identify unconscious barriers to achieving goals, and begin the process of feeling more authentic, happier.

Seeking therapy can be overwhelming, and also relieving; it is an act of hope. I believe that the potential for personal growth and change within all of us is enormous, and I value the opportunity to work with clients as we weave between the present and the past to explore the impact each as on the other.

My practice is informed by my training in Relational Psychotherapy and Attachment Theory, that is, the idea that our beliefs about ourselves and the ways in which we relate to to or experience the world and come to expect how our needs will or wont be met, has a basis in our early attachments with others.
