I see therapy as a process to help you attain your goals. Even though eating disorders, relationship issues, and life stressors can derail your life, individual therapy, couples counseling, and support groups can help you find solutions and get you back on track. Whether the concern is anxiety, depression, and/or ADD, psychotherapy can help you and your family to resolve the issues that are troubling.

As a highly trained and experienced solution-focused therapist in New York City (Midtown Manhattan) and New Jersey, my goal is to help you resolve difficult issues and achieve your highest quality of life.  While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and overcome challenges in your life. By applying a variety of therapy approaches tailored to your needs, we will find successful solutions for long-standing behavior patterns or negative beliefs that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're ready to move in a new direction in your life, I can help you achieve your objectives. 

I have a particular sensitivity to the issues of diverse populations including the LGBTQ community and Orthodox Jews. I am also highly experienced in working with single men & women, couples, children, teens, and older adults.

Please call me for an individual consultation, couples counseling, or to join a support group in my New York or New Jersey office. My New York office (212-750-8130) is centrally located near Grand Central and Bryant Park (easily accessible from all over Manhattan, the boroughs, as well as New Jersey and Connecticut.) My New Jersey office (732-247-5112) is easily accessible from communities throughout the state, and has abundant, free parking.

I return all phone calls and respond to all inquiries promptly.

Whether you are new to therapy or feel like you have “been everywhere and tried everything,” I can empower you to get unstuck. I look forward to helping you get started.
