My experience in psychotherapy spans 23 years across clinical environments and private practice. Helping people identify their challenges, gain perspective, and make progress in their lives is at the heart of my practice. As I watch clients change, their growth extends to all areas of their lives, and to what they bring to society.
Since graduating from Hunter College School of Social Work, I’ve had the great opportunity to work with people from diverse fields and backgrounds: artists, business and creative professionals, entrepreneurs, students, CEOs, freelancers, chefs, and expats. My New York clients are global clients, expansive in their desires, ideas, and dreams. The therapy relationship between client and practitioner is highly private and unique. It permits vulnerability and a discussion that cannot exist elsewhere. When one is in transition, a seasoned, objective professional is essential. Our relationship is exclusive to you and your needs. The result is perspective, insight and change.
