Licensed Individual & Couples Therapist in New York City

 

 
Hello and Welcome
 

You are probably here because you are hurting or are looking for resolution to a life issue. As a therapist, I will give you all the information, tools and assistance you need to find relief from your pain and a solution to your difficulties. I have been a therapist for over 20 years and can proudly say that I have helped countless numbers of couples and individual clients throughout New York City heal, grow and change their lives.

My Therapy Mission is Twofold

 

I work to enhance and expand peoples ability to experience deeper connection with themselves and others, connection as key to physical and mental health and well-being. Also, in my job as a therapist I help individuals and couples in their desire to close the gap between where they are right now and where they want to be.

My clients consider me 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 in marriage counseling, couples therapy and individual therapy. I look for the most efficient, effective and innovative ways to help my clients. To this end I use old school proven therapy modalities as well as the latest research and cutting edge techniques, such as EMDR and EFT.

There is nothing more satisfying to me as a therapist, than to see couples and individuals feel happier and live a better life, enjoying more fulfilling relationships with others.
