Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
Clinical Social Work/Therapist
First and foremost, I aim to create a non-judgmental environment where clients can feel comfortable to tackle sensitive issues. Therapy is one of the few places where you can express yourself freely and know that it will remain confidential. My role is to address YOUR goals in the context of your values and beliefs. Therapy is one hour set aside to focus on YOU. It’s a chance to pause and reflect on everything that’s happened during the week and work through issues that otherwise get swept under the rug in the chaos of NYC living. Having a sounding board can be so much more effective than just thinking things through by yourself. Just saying things out loud to another person gives you a different perspective than working through things alone. Clients tell me that they look forward to getting feedback from a trusted source aside from family or friends because their therapist doesn’t have the same bias. When you tell your therapist something they don't have a competing agenda. Your goals are their goals. Your therapist wants to help you achieve your highest potential on your terms. It’s helpful to have an external barometer that is completely on your team.
