What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

In my own life and in the lives of those around me, I have seen the impact that a talented, trained and truly empathetic counselor can have, and experienced the difference that work has had for me and my loved ones. The pandemic has sunk many who were just barely getting through the day, and I felt that it was important to refocus my life to help the many, many people in-and-around New York City who mange to get by to build a life which feels authentic, and where they can thrive.

What does a first session with you look like?

For every session, I ask clients to bring an agenda of issues to discuss so that we use our time together to process what’s at top of mind. Initially, we can talk about what brings you to therapy now. I will have questions to prompt you on friends, family, work or school, so the time will fly! You are also free to ask me questions; I will answer anything that is appropriate and related to building a working relationship

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Many people show up at my door when facing a major life transition (graduation, becoming a parent, after an accident or diagnosis, facing retirement), so I begin with an existential approach to tease out the anxiety and fear which can accompany change. Pandemic life brought many people to therapy for the first time because of the stresses around change in work, social and family realms, all of which challenged people's ability to “get by." When old wounds and patterns re-surface, it is important to process them to re-establish stability and build resilience. I use mindfulness exercises and CBT-based approaches to arm clients with tools to use outside the therapy office, where (frankly) most of the work happens. Between sessions, I encourage patients to journal; when in session, I am an active collaborator, bringing my decades of experience to bear in helping a patient feel seen, heard, validated and respected.
