Thank you for visiting my site.
I'm a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in private practice located in the heart of the Village in Manhattan. I have obtained a considerable breadth and depth of clinical experience, having worked in a variety of settings across New York. Prior to my private practice, I held faculty positions at the NY Harbor Veterans Affairs Medical Center and NYU Dept of Psychiatry.
I typically employ a psychodynamic approach to help individuals develop insight into their interpersonal patterns and internal conflicts. However, I also offer an integrative perspective, meaning that I utilize skills from various schools of thought depending on each individual's presenting concern.
I aim to provide a warm, supportive, and compassionate environment to foster a collaborative therapeutic relationship. Together, we will work to develop the support and confidence to make meaningful life changes and help find peace-of-mind.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions by phone or email, or to set up an appointment.
People enter therapy for a wide range of reasons, whether in response to a crisis, major life change, or dealing with daily emotional struggles. Regardless of the presenting problem, most people can benefit from working with a therapist.
Individual therapy begins with an initial consultation to discuss your reasons for seeking therapy, to discuss background information, and to determine if it feels like a good match. If we decide to proceed, we will meet for regular 45 minute sessions thereout. The length and frequency of therapy is determined on a case by case basis.
There are many different types of therapy, but most use talking in session to help you learn more about yourself and take better control of your life, as well as to facilitate healing and change. Topics discussed in therapy vary by individual and from session to session, but frequently discussed subjects can include past relationships, current conflicts, dreams, hopes for the future, and patterns of thinking and behaving, among others.
Rates and Insurance
I accept some types of insurance, but I am an out of network provider for most insurances. Please check with me directly about insurances I accept, and for my current rates of psychotherapy. If you seek reimbursement from your insurance provider, I will provide you with an itemized bill and will fill out any necessary paperwork.
