Description of Practice

Independent Psychotherapeutic Private Practice for Adults in the NYC-Columbus Circle area.

Philosophy:  We are complex individuals who are shaped and moved in large part by that which is outside of our awareness.  Engaging in conversation with a therapist to discover this hidden stuff has the power to expand, enrich and transform us.  Life challenges as well as difficulties that emerge from internal issues are important to open in the conversation.

Values & style:  Humanitarianism, Diversity, Active engagement without dogma or intimidation.  A “room of one’s own” is provided wherein a mutual conversation opens to new experience, more insight, pleasure and confidence.  Celebration of our differences and our resilience, with attention to our present ways and situations is foundational.  This is an eclectic practice with people of all walks of life, income, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Recognizing that in today's climate, finding a qualified, psychotherapist at low cost can be a great challenge:  My Schedule includes low cost hours.

Services Offered for Adults

Individual Psychotherapy, Couples Therapy, Group Psychotherapy, Professional Supervision.

Where indicated, individuals have the OPTION to engage in both individual and group psychotherapy concurrently (and importantly, with the same therapist).  Combining the two modalities works synergistically to increase self-awareness and capability.
