APPROACH 

The choice of whom to work with in individual or couples counseling is incredibly important. But in New York City, where there are vast number of mental health professionals and treatment options, the choice can also be daunting. I honor the faith my clients place in me with my commitment to providing them with outstanding quality of treatment and attention. I never claim expertise in any field where I don’t have the experience and training to back that up. And I feel strongly that the learning process for any good therapist should be ongoing. As knowledge in the field of mental health advances, so should we. I devote significant resources to ongoing professional education and benefit from consultation and training with leaders in the field, as well as active participation in a number of professional organizations.

But training and experience are not enough. Your choice in therapist is highly personal and you will benefit the most when you feel a natural personal connection with the person you work with. My own style is human, warm and deeply nonjudgmental. I work in an active, engaged way and will encourage you to take risks or challenge old beliefs and behaviors. I also believe that one size does not fit all. My approach to treatment is always informed by what you want most from therapy and how you feel most comfortable getting there. I often work with a blend of relational, systemic and psychoanalytic approaches, compassion based therapy, narrative techniques, and aspects of Buddhist psychology. I invite you to contact me if you are looking for assistance with a specific problem and/or would like to find out more detailed information about my experience and background.
