I am a psychotherapist with a private practice on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I work with individuals and couples, specializing in anger management, assertiveness, communication and other relationship issues. I also coach executives to develop and realize their vision of growth professionally and personally.
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. While we cannot change others, by changing our attitudes and our behavior, those around us often change theirs. So, you may connect in ways that you didn’t before we began working together.
Some, who avoid confrontation, may feel that having that difficult conversations with family, friends, boss, or employees, is futile. But with a different mindset you may realize that there is a way to discuss even the most challenging topics. After all, everyone needs to find a way to be heard that works for them.

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. You may be in a relationship with a wonderful person but don't feel the spark. If you leave him, would you be missing an opportunity or would you be opening the door to new experiences and meeting "the One," whatever that means.

Additional Training: Apart from training in cognitive behavioral treatments, I trained in psychoanalytical psychotherapy and strength-based and solution-focused techniques.
