About Me

- An Interactive Approach to Therapy-
Are you looking for a therapist who will not only listen to you, but also speak and offer constructive feedback, instead of just sitting quietly in the background?
In my 14 years as a psychologist in Manhattan, I have always been straightforward and interactive with clients. At the same time, I am also a good listener and view my client as a partner in the therapeutic process. My goal—our goal—is to enhance your self-awareness and therefore enable you to become liberated from self-defeating patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The purpose of my work is to decrease your suffering while helping you fulfill your unique potential as an individual.
I take what I do very seriously, but I also believe there is a place for humor in my work. I see no contradiction between sometimes being playful while always remaining an effective, serious, and focused healer. My main priority is to create a setting in which you feel understood and free to express and learn about yourself. Creating such an atmosphere always varies depending on the individual. This means that together, over time, we will “custom-fit” your therapy to facilitate your psychological growth.
I work with individuals (adults and adolescents) and I also do couples therapy.
