My eclectic therapeutic approach draws from relational psychoanalysis, psychodynamic psychotherapy, interpersonal psychotherapy and family/marital therapy. I take into account the individual sitting in front of me and how he or she can best benefit from therapy. Therapy works best when the client feels safe and comfortable opening up to his or her therapist. Life can be full of stressful situations and it’s helpful to have someone be there to listen to you. It’s important to process change so that stress doesn’t build up and manifest itself in unhealthy ways. I’m here to help you have a clearer picture of what it is you want for yourself so that you can live your life in the best way possible. As an outsider I will reflect back to you what I’m hearing and give you different ways to think about what’s going on. I believe it is important to focus on the present while revisiting the past to better understand how it affects one’s current life.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a private practice in midtown Manhattan. I am a graduate of Fordham University School of Social Service. After obtaining my masters degree in social work I felt it was important to continue my education and completed the four-year postgraduate training program in Adult Psychoanalysis and Comprehensive Psychotherapy from The National Institute for the Psychotherapies. I worked in various clinics throughout New York before entering private practice. I specialize in individual psychotherapy with adolescents, adults, and couples dealing with a wide variety of struggles such as depression, anxiety, body/weight issues, low self esteem, LGBTQ issues, relationship difficulties, as well as assist people struggling with religious identity issues.
