ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

People tell me I am easy to talk to.  That comes in handy when you're a psychotherapist.  One of the most important things to me is that my client feels comfortable. Just as a flower cannot grow without soil, water or sunlight, I believe a person cannot grow in therapy if they do not feel comfortable and connected with their therapist.  

EXPERIENCE

I have worked as a psychotherapist on Long Island since 2014.  Most of my work has been in outpatient mental health clinics and university counseling centers.  In 2019, I started my own private psychotherapy practice. My therapeutic approach is mindfulness informed, and is also psycho-dynamic and cognitive behavioral in nature.  I also teach mindfulness meditation.  I earned my qualification as a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher through the University of Massachusetts. I teach MBSR at schools and corporations around Long Island, as well as privately at my Meditation Center, The Mindful Place.

MY PHILOSOPHY

You have the capacity to change the way you live your life. You can learn to live in a more liberated way. You can learn to navigate difficult emotions such as anxiety or depression. You can learn to build more meaningful relationships or communicate more effectively. You can experience more acceptance and gratitude. I believe we can change and grow every day if we are open to it. My hope is that I can help you learn to live in a new way, if that is your goal. Maybe your goal is to reduce depression, stress or anxiety. Maybe your goal is to create more meaningful relationships, be more confident or be happy. Your goal is my goal.
