Announcement icon I am still accepting new clients and am offering phone and video sessions via Zoom or Skype for clients who are distancing or quarantined.
Finding a good fit is very important. However, going through profiles, you may not be entirely sure what you're looking for. I recognize how difficult the first step can be and I see your willingness to stick your neck out as gutsy as well as a sign of strength and resilience for which we will build upon. Good therapy reaffirms life, find meaning and pleasure in life, it improves your relationships, and strengthens your self esteem.
Living, loving & working in NYC can be very stressful. My patients use therapy to figure out what gets in the way of finding/keeping love/meaningful friendships, keeps them "stuck", ways to manage school/work stress and difficult environments/relationships, how to increase their focus/attention as well as regulate themselves so they can live their lives.
Our therapy together will help you understand why this occurs for you and become a safe space to try out new skills to cope/manage. In addition, I particularly like working with people struggling along the anxiety and OCD spectrum disorders, grief, loss, perinatal and post partum, parenting, and adhd/sensory issues.
