What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

Their internalized sense of shame or inadequacy that society tends to ascribe to those in need of treatment. Related to this is the mistaken notion that being in therapy is a sign of failure, whereas in reality seeking it is the first step in succeeding in achieving happiness and life satisfaction.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

I believe, experience, and know that everybody wants to move ahead in their life, in whatever way they define this. We are progressive beings. Life may be seen as a series of challenges and tests, different for every person. We obviously prefer not to experience the difficult ones, but fate hands us what will help us to move ahead if we can meet these challenges. If we cannot do this alone, then that is where working with a competent therapist comes in.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

The end goal of successfully completed therapy is for the client to become their own therapist, to have internalized the work done and do it on themselves in a loving manner. There are many signs of progress, some of them being feeling less burdened, more able to deal with their problems, more able to recapture and maintain a calmer mood, feeling happier and more satisfied, among others.

Work History

Whether this is your first time seeing a therapist or not, seeking help can be difficult, and I thank you for viewing my page. I have always been very interested in people, how they think and feel, as well as how they may be helped to feel better. For example, I first read Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams when I was 12 years old. No matter how long you have had to deal with your issues , you and I can collaborate to find approaches that will move towards resolving them. After learning about you at the beginning of treatment, we will work together to determine your goals and frame an initial approach towards achieving them. I feel humbled and honored to be able to work with people who survived difficult life experiences. I have worked in clinics mostly in the NYC area, most recently in western North Carolina, and have treated adolescents to the elderly, with a wide variety of issues. What I bring to the session is an accepting attitude, close listening, great empathy, life experience, and an understanding of the psyche and the complex ways it works. Flexibility is most essential in treatment, and I can change my style and approach to better suit the issues and needs that may arise. In the start of treatment I am very interested in learning about you, the client. While I may be a skilled therapist, you are the expert in your life. I strongly believe in creating a safe, comfortable environment where we can gradually explore, understand, and work through the issues that are holding you back.
