Effective, Accessible & Individualized Care
Conveniently located in Brooklyn Heights
Individual Therapy for Mental and Emotional Wellness
I provide personalized, effective, treatment for mood disorders, anxiety, and other mental health concerns. I have experience working with a wide range of concerns including relationship and interpersonal problems, low self-esteem, employment and educational concerns, and grief and loss.
My approach is informed by contemporary psychodynamic concepts, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and mindfulness. I work to create a balance between seeking insight and finding solutions and can incorporate meditation and writing into my sessions.
I am committed to getting to know each of my client's unique experiences and approach those I work with with respect, genuine interest, and a commitment to find a new way forward together.
Perinatal Mental Health
The strain of pregnancy, hormonal changes, sleep deprivation, and the huge life change that is having a baby can deplete our usual coping skills and contribute to depression and anxiety. This is not your fault, and there is effective help to get you feeling like yourself again and to be the parent you want to be. It IS possible to find new ways to calm and soothe your worries, improve your mood while you care for your child, and connect to your new role as a parent.
I welcome all families into my practice and enjoy working with birth parents, adoptive parents, and partners.
Couples seek counseling when they find themselves having the same arguments again and again, feeling misunderstood and alone. Whether you are approaching marriage, have a new baby, or have longstanding concerns you'd like to address, therapy can help you find ways to support each other rather than argue and begin to replace criticism and frustration with empathy and understanding.
I use principles of Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy to learn about my client's backgrounds and help uncover the deeper wants and needs informing their actions. I provide a safe and structured environment where arguing or distancing are no longer the only options. I help guide clients to experiment with new ways of expressing themselves and to open space for intimacy and connection.
