In today's society, we are often expected to have everything figured out and put our best selves forward. Sometimes we just need a space to be our full unfiltered selves where we do not have to know the answer. As a therapist who specializes in anxiety, depression and life transitions, I have a trauma-informed, narrative approach that also incorporates mindfulness practices. I prioritize creating a safe, nonjudgemental space in order for you to openly share your thoughts and feelings. I believe this space will provide a foundation for a strong therapeutic relationship centered around trust and healing.

CBT, ACT, and Narrative Therapy provide evidence-based frameworks within which to collaboratively build a unique treatment plan.
There are moments of insight and energy when we realize we can know ourselves better, live closer to our ideals, and find a better path. This awakening is an opportunity but it can seem overwhelming - we want to start but are not sure how. If this describes your present state, I encourage you to stay with it and trust yourself. A therapist can be a useful guide to help you travel into the sometimes painful past, analyze and accept the occasionally overwhelming present, and contemplate changes that will bring fulfillment and even peace and joy.

I see myself as an editor asked to help review and rewrite the narrative of a client's life. People often find themselves stuck or unhappy or confused by their own choices and their consequences. In an engaged, friendly and respectfully manner I work with a person to understand how they got to the place they are unhappy with. We then try to re-imagine their narrative, introduce new perspectives, or simply find a greater acceptance of those choices already made.

In the end, it's about self-discovery in narrative.
Trained in both classical and contemporary analysis, I focus on depression and anxiety, sexual and relationship issues, trauma and self-identity problems. We would start with a consultation and our goal would be to establish a fruitful connection from the beginning. My other goals include helping you with your feelings, the troubling ones that return unwanted. I have found listening well is at least as important as talking well. Speech contains levels of meaning and so does silence. We discourse together in a dialogue leading to better relationships, better functioning, and better experiences.

For many, the world feels like an especially grim place right now, and finding healing is a challenge. My aim in therapy is to help you learn or rediscover ways of feeling, thinking and relating that work better for you and help you live a life you value. I draw primarily on narrative therapy in my practice, but use techniques from CBT, relational therapy, and other modalities as appropriate. I believe that you are the expert on yourself, that every life is multi-storied and that true understanding and healing requires examining power and privilege in society (including within the therapist’s office).

Say you come in one week with ruminating negative thoughts-that week I will probably use a cognitive behavioral or acceptance and commitment therapy approach. Say you are feeling lost or anxious and are ready to change how you see your past and present-I would most likely see through a narrative therapy lens during our session.

For over two decades it has been my extraordinary privilege to hear the life stories of individuals who have engaged with me in the work of therapy. These unique stories, whether marked by suffering and despair, joy and happiness, were always about resilience and survival, and have taught me well the therapeutic value of narrative. This kind of listening is a partnership, a collaborative effort that is reflected in my clinical approach. I tell my social work students at Columbia that the most critically important tool they have is their ears.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. New York Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in New York.
