Why I chose to be in the helping profession

Hey! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York City who specializes in anxiety, depression, life transitions, and chronic illness. Whether you feel burned out by work, are having difficulty with loved ones, or are experiencing any form of chronic illness, I believe that therapy can help you get to where you want to be. I generally work with clients who are 18+ and who are experiencing some kind of difficulty in their lives. I use multiple therapeutic orientations including mindfulness exercises, Person-Centered psychotherapy, and traditional psychodynamic therapy. I strive to be as genuine as possible with my clients, and my style of therapy can be a bit more informal than what you might be accustomed to. I generally facilitate therapy sessions so that can feel more conversational than one-sided.
I was raised in an Orthodox household and attended Yeshiva until after high school. I received my BA from Yeshiva University and a Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Touro College. I am currently enrolled as a doctoral student in Pace University where I am studying different forms of stress and our reactions to them.
I am also a doctoral student with a focus on stress and social interaction and have an interest in research.
