As a therapist, I bring my experience and clinical expertise in helping you feel more grounded, confident and courageous to show up in your life. Let's get you unstuck, and help create movement and change. I see my role as not just offering insight and guidance, but providing skills, integrating clarity and mind-body healing that promote a feeling of inner calm and offer a better daily experience.


Whether you're in pain, feeling burdened by crippling self doubt or anxiety, you deserve to feel better. I commend you for reaching out and looking for ways to help you unstuck from patterns and thoughts that are keeping you locked in a cycle of frustration.
You may be in the process of defining who you are, seeking relationship guidance, wanting to learn how to feel "good" again or are looking to finally get some relief from the inner turmoil.


When you're stuck, it feels almost impossible to know where to turn and how to make the best next choice. By choosing to invest in good clinical therapy, you will take the time to find a trained therapist who can help. Good treatment provides the space to be deeply heard, understood and supported in the specific struggle you're currently in.
At the start of therapy, we work on getting clarity in identifying exactly what it is you're needing help with right now. You may be needing to feel strong and grounded. You may be needing to set clearer boundaries, and learn to engage in healthier relationships. The therapeutic relationship leans towards healing injuries or traumas that have been impacting your quality of life, holding you back from living a more fulfilling day-to-day experience. Therapy maps out a plan, providing support, offering skills and insight that will guide you in moving forward with more clarity, confidence and wisdom.


My therapeutic work based on years of clinical practice, blended with my gentle humor has helped clients feel comfortable to begin the work with comfort and ease. I approach therapy thoughtfully and diligently, assuring that the work is thorough and steady-paced, aligning with highest level of clinical care. My clinical framework is based upon my advanced training in EMDR, Somatic Psychotherapy (mind-body), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. 

You can learn ways to be more present, connected and confident. Your life and relationships are meant to be meaningful and fulfilling.  Let's help you learn how. 
My practice is located in Cedarhurst, New York. The office is on ground level so there are no steps to get to my suite. There is outdoor metered parking, however, at busier hours, parking may take some extra time, so I suggest adding an extra 10 minutes to your travel, allowing adequate time to find comfortable parking.

My session fee is $200 for 45 minutes.
