I am a psychotherapist with a private practice on the Upper East Side of Manhattan who works with individuals and couples, specializing in anger management, assertiveness and relationship issues such as communication. I graduated from Yeshiva University's Wurzweiler Graduate School of Social Work and attended Cornell University and New York University for undergraduate school. I also have a Masters of Business Administration.
I have almost 30 years experience. My practice spans a wide range of ages, ethnicities and religions. I work with individuals and couples on stress and anger management issues, relationship difficulties and on challenges they may have communicating effectively with partners, family, friends, or co-workers. I was in the corporate world which informs my executive and professional coaching and counseling services.
In general, I begin the process by listening to what brings you to therapy and gather information about your background and history. Then, together, you decide on the goals of your treatment. I help you resolve current problems and long-standing patterns by using methods that allow you to find answers within, leading to changes that meet your goals.
There are some situations in which an individual may dismiss therapy although it could make a significant difference in the quality of his or her life. For example, you may want to have couple's therapy but your partner resists, so you may give up on the idea. I encourage you to make that call. By changing the way you think about your experience, you may be able to change your behavior and affect the behavior of those around you. That is why you might consider therapy, even if your partner resists.
If you are experiencing stress, or a nagging sense that your life is not what it could be, reach out to see how therapy could help you learn about yourself and others and make changes you never dreamed possible.
Additional Training: Apart from training in cognitive behavioral treatments, I trained in psychoanalytical psychotherapy and strength-based and solution-focused techniques.
