Are you feeling frightened or find yourself worrying a lot? Are you often tense or nervous? Do you frequently feel sad? Are you experiencing low self-esteem, or feelings of worthlessness? Do you have problems in your relationships with family, friends, and/or romantic partners? Do you lack meaningful relationships and need help in dating and making friends? Do you often feel ill or exhausted for no apparent reason? If so, I can help.
By visiting this site you've taken the first steps toward finding a therapist, an excellent decision if you desire experienced and professional support and guidance through a challenging situation. Such assistance is particularly important if your emotional state is interfering with your interpersonal relationships, adversely affecting your health or enthusiasm for life, harming your performance at work or at school, and if, despite your best and repeated efforts at new beginnings, your situation gets worse, rather than better.
I can help you build a richer and more rewarding life. I work with Individuals, Couples and Families to find solutions to the problems that are robbing them of happiness and tranquility. I specialize in anxiety, depression, stress management, problems with interpersonal relationships -- including dating, marriage, family and couples therapy, pre-divorce and post-divorce counseling, communication impediments, infidelity and sexuality issues. I welcome patients in non-traditional relationships, and members of the LGBTQ communities. My work with mood extends to include the treatment of postpartum anxiety and sadness, work-related issues, psychosomatic disorders (TMS/PPD), and I have expertise in headache prevention. My work is confidential and non-judgmental.
I am a Licensed Psychotherapist practicing both in Manhattan and in Great Neck (Long Island). I take pride in being a caring and skilled therapist and am committed to my patients' well-being. I am a relationship specialist and I use a personalized approach which places high value on the doctor-patient therapeutic relationship. Our work together will be tailored your individual needs. The techniques I employ bring rapid symptom reduction so that you can begin again to find peace and joy. It would be my pleasure to teach you the tools to overcome the challenges that are confronting you.
I practice a form of therapy called Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), the most effective form of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), and when appropriate, I incorporate Mindfulness principles. When working with couples, I also incorporate Imago Therapy exercises to steer our work to the areas in which couples are most in need of guidance.
You will find my style to be relaxed yet professional and I work in conveniently located, inviting and comfortable offices.
