If you’re affected by the daily stresses of life or more significant issues related to depression, anxiety or interpersonal relationships, I can be of help to you. I am a New York City licensed psychologist and certified psychoanalyst. I offer psychotherapeutic interventions to help clients gain more detailed insight into what's troubling them so that they can hopefully manage their issues more effectively and thrive in their lives rather than just “get by”.
I work in a one on one setting, situated in a warm, comfortable environment overlooking a private garden. It is a safe space where confidential issues can be discussed. My office is conveniently located, and appointment times are flexible to accommodate your schedule.
Our earliest attachments form the templates for our subsequent relationships. As a result, we repeat patterns in our relationships throughout our lives. Because they are present from the beginning, our patterns may be as invisible to us as water to a fish. Yet they shape our destinies.
Therapy entails a relationship between a therapist and patient. Patients bring their templates and patterns into this relationship. It is my goal to enter the gravitational field of patients’ problematic relationship patterns, experiencing and participating in them. Through participation in these patterns, I can help my patients understand and rework them.
I know that the decision to seek treatment to work through mental health/substance abuse issues is a big one, and I am happy to support you by answering any questions that you might have. I work with clients of all ages, sexual orientations, and have specific experience working with HIV related issues. If you’d like to work with an experienced New York psychologist for whom client well-being is a top priority, contact me today.
