In my practice near Union Square/Flatiron, I draw from DBT, CBT, mindfulness and acceptance-based strategies to address mood and anxiety disorders, trauma, relationships problems, career/academic stress, and life transitions.
I work with adults, children/adolescents, couples and families. My adult clients often come to me because they’re battling depression or anxiety that feels so overwhelming that they can’t pull themselves out of their despair. They may have specific relationship, family or career concerns and cannot see a clear way forward. I help them with techniques for immediate symptom relief as well as facilitating a deep understanding of themselves and their patterns of behavior that leads to breaking free of their sense of hopelessness and starting to live and enjoy life to the full. My child and adolescent patients have behavioral, mood or academic concerns that lead to a failure to thrive and flourish. I assist both the child and parents in understanding what is behind their
difficulties as well as sharing practical strategies to assist in daily functioning.

In my private practice I offer psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapy in which I strive to create a relationship and process in which it is possible to articulate a narrative of your self and your life that can be experienced as resonant and authentic, towards an alleviation of that which ails you. Your personal, historical, and cultural formation is critical in our exploration of who you are and who you strive to become. The state of being anxious or depressed or melancholic is one we will together attempt to understand as a surfacing of a deep and interior self to be understood and integrated.
