I have been an Individual and Couples Therapist in New York City for over 20 years. I can proudly say that I have helped countless couples and individual clients heal, grow and change their lives and relationships.
The goal of my work is to enhance and expand people’s ability to experience deeper connection with themselves and others, connection being key to physical and mental health and well-being.
Philosophy On Therapy and Counseling
It is my belief that relationships are crucially important and that without close relationships and secure connections with others we can not thrive. Disruption of such connections is the reason for all emotional pain and suffering. Every issue that any client brings to my office is, inevitably, an exploration and healing of a relationship trauma or disruption of connection with a significant person in his or her life.
Rejection and abandonment are common human experiences that traumatize all of us and become symptoms we carry in a form of depression, anxiety, addictions, health problems and all other symptoms and illnesses.
What Happens In Sessions
My clients consider me a straight-forward and active therapist in our sessions. This is probably the main reason most of my referrals come from past and existing clients. I have spent my professional life learning and searching for the root causes of human suffering and the issues that bring people to individual therapy, marriage counseling and couples therapy. ( make these bold and hyperlink these to corresponding pages?) I look for the most efficient, effective and innovative ways to help my clients. To this end I use “old school” proven therapeutic modalities as well as the latest research and cutting edge techniques, such as EMDR and EFT.
