Why I chose to be in the helping profession

Psychologist in Brooklyn & Manhattan

Seeking therapy is the first step toward deep and positive change in a person’s life. My work is aimed at giving people space to explore their immediate concerns, simultaneously developing a healthy and vibrant mindset with which to approach life’s ups and downs. The kind of psychotherapy that I practice involves careful and close listening to the difficulties that manifest themselves in a person’s life, and how those difficulties tend to repeat or consistently present in a variety of contexts. I work with clients that appreciate that lasting change is indeed possible, and more accessible than they might have imagined, even though it can take patience and commitment to achieve.

It is often deeply rooted patterns that one is not even aware of that may be the cause of struggles and dissatisfaction in life. In my work, I seek to help unravel these repetitive experiences to pave the way toward a more satisfying life.

I offer psychotherapy for adults, adolescents and children. My experience includes working in a wide range of settings from inpatient psychiatric units, outpatient mental health clinics, college counseling centers, school settings, and private practice. I am also active in teaching psychology at the university level and in providing clinical supervision for therapists in practice.
