Announcement icon I will hold online, video or phone sessions with clients and have a private home office in which this can be done.
It is important to have physical and mental well-being.Therapy is a process of self discovery and healing. I believe in the process and help people understand that we do it together. It takes time to work on one's issues but I believe in the process of growth and positive change. I help people recognize that you have to love oneself, feel you deserve to be happier and do the work to make that happen.I believe that people are survivors and can overcome obstacles. I look up insurance benefits for patients and do all billing to lessen patient worry over this. I provide telehealth therapy for those who work from home or are disabled
I have multiple specialty areas of practice and a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise. I work in addictions, chronic illness, mood disorders, stress, grief, relationship issues, workplace problems, transgender to name a few. I work with individuals, couples, families and groups. I have offices in Manhattan and Queens NYC.
I create a relaxed atmosphere with my patients, believe it is important to be interactive and provide feedback in a helpful manner. I feel divulging personal information can help a patient feel connected to you as long as it is professionally relevant. Important to love one's work!
