According to the World Health Organization, "Depression is a common mental disorder affecting more than 264 million people worldwide. Depression is a leading cause of disability around the world and contributes greatly to the global burden of disease."
My counseling style is very eclectic. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques which cater to each individual’s unique needs, bearing in mind that those needs may change over time — together, we are creating a “work in progress.” My style is a combination of psychodynamic, self-psychology and cognitive/behavioral (CBT) and I am a very interactive therapist who incorporates warmth and humor.
My interests in mind/body healing, energy work and Reiki also inform my work with clients. Often, I find it helpful with many of my clients to incorporate various spiritual philosophies such as Buddhism, or meditation/visualization techniques.
I am a licensed Clinician in New York, California and Pennsylvania offering brief or long term therapy sessions. My specialities include: Career issues, food and body image issues, life stressors, relationship issues, co-dependency patterns and reframing negative thought patterns. I enjoy working with executives, entrepreneurs, students, artists, actors and other creative folks. I am also an LGBTQ-allied therapist. I welcome individuals who are transitioning, non-binary and/or folks who enjoy various non-traditional relationships or lifestyles.
I also believe that first and foremost, a client needs to make a solid connection with her/his therapist and that a genuine, down-to-earth stance on the part of the provider affords the client the most beneficial and comfortable experience in the therapy room. Feedback over the years from my clients includes feeling extremely comfortable to share their information and also an appreciation of my direct and interactive style.
