Why I chose to be in the helping profession

Jewish Therapist in Manhattan, NY

I help Millennial and Gen X professionals consciously get what they want (in life and relationships). Life is overwhelming. Between work, relationships, and technology calling for your attention at every moment, it’s extremely difficult to remain calm and grounded. We can lose our sense of purpose and passion.

I’ve had my own struggles in life, which led me to see therapists, take countless personal growth workshops, and sit in meditation retreats. Through doing all of this work, I figured out how to rewrite the mental and emotional patterns that no longer served me. I learned how to achieve greater peace by getting out of my head and getting present in my body.

Unlike other therapists who merely sit and listen, I take an active and engaged approach. You may find yourself in a guided meditation or a role-play exercise. There may be optional homework assignments. We’ll tune into exactly what you need. I’m here to support you to find your unique, confident voice.

Personal Connection to Jewish Community: I was raised as a Reform Jew, had a Bar Mitzvah, and have been to Israel twice. I'm more spiritual than religious.
