I am a cognitive behavioral therapist with a solution-focused strength-based approach. My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life going forward. We will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

I provide therapy for individuals and couples struggling with chronic worry, over-work, over-scheduling and other stresses that often accompany city life. I provide executive coaching and counseling to help unravel knotty interpersonal work-related problems, enhance your career and or open new professional or business horizons. I work with family or friend estrangements. We cover relationship issues, where I provide tools to help you "do conflict" better, learn to manage that out of control feeling in real time and then have guidelines for difficult conversations with those who matter.
The process allowing you to take control in the heated moment is called “ANGER TRIGGERS: A Self-Soothing, D-Escalation and Assertiveness Approach.” It is a structured alternative to reactive behaviors like lashing out or bottling up, in the very moment when intense emotion or a spike in anxiety takes over, driving your behavior.

You may have a longstanding pattern, so ingrained it feels like a part of your personality. For example, when angry or anxious or overwhelmed by emotion, you lose your temper, or bottle up your feelings or shut down. You may think, "This is just who I am." However, no matter how automatic and long-standing these reactions, they are habits and habits are learned behaviors and can be changed.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to guide you in achieving your goals.
Please call or email me for individual and couples therapy or anger management classes today.
My office is located at 425 East 86th Street in a pre-war apartment building between First and York Avenues (a bit closer to First). When you enter the lobby and turn to the left, you'll see Suite 1A, a waiting room, two bathrooms and a nest of offices. Prior to COVID-19, I would be coming out to greet you.
