Why I chose to be in the helping profession

Jewish Therapist in Manhattan, NY

Do you feel stuck? Are you having trouble managing day-to-day worries and fears? Do you struggle with people pleasing? Saying yes when you want to say no? Often this creates anxiety, resentment, and dissatisfaction in our lives and relationships and can leave us feeling stuck and unfulfilled. We will work together to create insight to shift old patterns and behaviors that are keeping you from living the life you want. We will develop reliable tools to manage and improve painful emotions and stressful situations. If you are ready to find a new sense of confidence and meaning in your life, I’m here to help you get there.

I work with millennials, teens and tweens to overcome and heal from life's challenges and learn how to thrive. I consider myself multi-theoretical, grounded in evidence-based practice, as I strive to understand which modality is in your best interest. I tend to take a holistic approach, addressing the interconnectedness of one’s body and mind.

Psychotherapy is not a one size fits all. Each person’s journey is unique and therefore we will work together to create a treatment plan tailored to meet your specific needs. It’s essential for my clients to get individualized treatment for issues that range from:
-Anxiety
-Family Relationships
-Communication Skills
-Trauma and PTSD
-Life Transitions
-Dating/Marriage
-Perfectionism
(Just to name a few)

I believe that every client has the intrinsic ability to heal and grow and that it is the role of the therapist to shine the light and help facilitate your process of change. I see change as not only possible but inevitable. I strive to create a warm and safe healing environment that is unique and personalized to meet your individual needs.

I consider myself multi-theoretical and grounded in evidence-based practices, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness as well as integrating attachment-based theory through a psychodynamic lens. This means I explore “the why” behind patterns and behaviors while also working to improve, shift and change them. I have training in family systems and play therapy, as well as various expressive and alternative modalities including art, drama, and sand tray therapy. I am also certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Level 1.
