Qualifications and Experience
I am a psychotherapist in private practice currently accepting new patients, with evening and weekend hours available. My practice is located on the Upper East Side of New York City and I specialize in anxiety, addiction, developmental / life transitions, and the connections between chronic pain and trauma. If for whatever reason, during an initial free phone consult we discover that it's not a good match, I will work with you to find someone who is able to meet your needs. In mental health treatment, there's a tendency to focus on symptoms (such as sadness, worry, or difficulties concentrating) as if they existed apart from the unique, cultural life circumstances of individuals. These symptoms have distinct meanings for each person, and my approach remains flexible and deeply respectful of these meanings. What makes me a good fit for many is my ability to bring to life the internal experience of each individual. Through this approach, I am able to help people live more fulfilled lives, open up new possibilities in relationships, make changes, and reduce a great deal of internal suffering.
