In addition to CBT, I help my clients cope with pervasive existential issues, which are the sometimes paralyzing, but persistently present psychological and emotional effects of the ultimate givens of existence: death, meaning, isolation, and freedom (the groundlessness of life and its consequential need to build life's most beautiful creation — the self.
The foundation of my practice consists of helping my clients become rational and responsible actors in their lives. In the service of these ultimate ends, I teach them how to become better analytical thinkers, working together on fostering healthy conceptions of themselves, others, and their circumstances, thus providing the tools required for emotional regulation and living a healthy and fulfilling life. Additionally, we work together on understanding the sources of and reducing unhealthy behaviors. This approach is called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

My practice began after the tragedy of 9/11 (September 11, 2001) in Manhattan, New York City. Since then I have helped and continue to help individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, grief, stress, suicidal ideation, and trauma. The Covid-19 pandemic has heightened my awareness on the importance of mental health and advocating for it in daily living. Issues of existential distress like abandonment, anger, depression, food insecurity, identity, isolation, guilt, loss, helplessness, hopelessness, toxic relationships, safety, shame, and self-esteem have never been more pronounced than in the past year in my practice.

Anxiety and mood disorders were my first areas of expertise. My fascination with relationships led me to study, from the lens of sex, the complicated and delicate dynamics that occur between and within people. This view point has given me a perspective on the interplay between sex, emotional difficulties, relationship patterns and attachment styles. Whether sex and relationship difficulties bring you to treatment or it's your anxiety and mood difficulties; we'll use my understanding of best clinical practices and your history to help you live a more satisfied life, inside and outside the bedroom.

I ground my work in existential and spiritual perspectives which acknowledge that my clients are far too complex to fit within a particular theory or modality of psychotherapy.
I believe in the holistic nature of change. Thus viewed, change isn't initiated simply by thinking healthy thoughts. These healthy thoughts need to be complemented by healthy emotions in order for us to experience the motivation to change. Very often, we are disconnected from the emotions we experience in certain situations because those emotions haven’t been respected or acknowledged within our past relationships. Consequently, we become estranged from the parts of ourselves which those emotions represent. Through the therapeutic process we may reconnect with those neglected parts of ourselves so we may feel whole again.

Emphasizing the importance of awareness and insight, I prefer the client to be the one to want to find solutions that fit their needs. Each client is believed to have a potential within, which may be hindered by the inability to overcome adversities in life. The struggle to overcome adverse experiences, can be a product of sociocultural system, family context, early attachment and relationships which reflect a stigmatized idea of self.

Do you ever feel alone in a room full of people or lonely in what should be a loving relationship? Are you anxious or sad and don't know why (or maybe do)? If you struggle to connect, to trust, to reach out, to pursue what you desire or to stop doing what doesn't work, our work together will begin with creating a safe, open, inquisitive, and engaging relationship with me.
