New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor
As a caring, collaborative and empathetic Licensed Psychotherapist, I focus on achieving early symptom reduction. My patients and I identify and examine the thoughts, emotions and behaviors that contribute to their discomfort. We explore the changes, and techniques for implementing those changes, that will lead to greater happiness and fulfillment. My areas of expertise include Interpersonal Relationships, Work-Related Anxiety, other types of anxiety, depression, couples and sex therapy, LGBTQ concerns, infidelty, self-esteem, dating and pre-martital issues and psychosomatic disorders. If you are having a hard time in these areas and are seeking extra support and guidance, then I would love to work with you.
I counsel individuals and couples using the most effective forms of therapy, including Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) and Imago Therapy. Treatment is confidential and without discrimination on the basis of religious preference, sexual orientation, or any other attribute.
I earned my Applied Psychology degree at NYU and completed my internship at Columbia University, after graduating from Johns Hopkins University. My training continued at the Albert Ellis Institute and at the American Academy of Clinical Sexologists. I remain very active in the Psychotherapy community.
Treatment is confidential and without discrimination on the basis of religious preference, relationship style or sexual orientation or any other attribute. My office is attractive, comfortable and tranquil and is located within a private psychotherapy suite.
I am honored to teach and supervise graduate students at Columbia University, where I work as an adjunct Assistant Professor one day each week.
