Looking for NYC counseling and psychotherapy services? I offer a wide range of services to older adolescents through older adults at my office in the Union Square/East Village area of New York City. The links below will take you to more information about different areas of my psychotherapy practice. Please read through and if you’re wondering if my services are appropriate for you, reach out to me and I’ll be happy to address your concerns.
Types of Treatment Offered
“A child needs to be loved. An adult wants to love. Couples counseling helps you love more maturely.”
From the moment you pop into the world, you want connection. It’s an emotional and biological necessity.
“Maybe you look great on paper—but you’re not enjoying your life. Are you feeling satisfied in love, work, and play?“
Why aren’t you feeling as good as you “should”? Why don’t your insides match your outsides? I can help you! This is something we’ll explore together through therapy and this can make a big difference in your enjoyment of your life.
Types of Issues Addressed
“Anxiety is a small footprint on the mind. Anxiety treatment prevents it from becoming a rut that traps all other thoughts.”
Living in New York City can be stressful or wonderful. And much of how you experience it depends on how you see the world and yourself—how you think about and deal with the people and situations in your life.
“Depression steals the good feelings from your day-to-day life and your memories. Depression treatment restores your energy and optimism to plan a better future.”
Are you feeling empty, helpless, unmotivated? Disappointed? Alone? Are you feeling that life has passed you by? If depression is keeping you from fully enjoying your life, I can help.
“Self-esteem is learning to feel good from the inside out, not by comparing yourself to others. I’ll help you learn to feel better!”
Many people come to New York City with dreams of finding fame and fortune. You can feel good about yourself—whether or not those dreams come true—if your self-worth is based on the things that matter.
“Hard work won’t guarantee the results you want, but it will improve your chances and you can feel good about yourself, regardless of the results.”
People say to follow your bliss, but first jobs—and later ones—aren’t always so blissful. I’ll help you deal with that discrepancy and plan next steps.
“Parenting is uncharted territory for everyone. In psychotherapy, I’ll guide you through with compassion, humor, and skill.”
How do you cope with the sleep deprivation that comes with parenting? How do you balance your baby’s needs, your spouse’s needs, and your own? What’s spoiling your child and what’s considering your child? How do you help your child who spends most of the time shut away in his or her room? How involved should you be in your child’s homework?
“If you deal with the behavior without confronting the underlying issues, you’re just switching chairs on a sinking ship. What does the behavior mean?”
Do you know why you’re using substances? Are you looking for good feelings about yourself, trying to drown your pain, trying to avoid dealing with certain people or situations in your life? Psychotherapy can help.
“An early experience of trauma amplifies whatever difficulties you encounter afterward. This makes it hard to ‘bounce back’ from setbacks and disappointments. Trauma can be a factor in all of the issues listed above. I approach any trauma in a gentle, safe way, so that it’s talked about—not re-experienced.”
You may be suffering from trauma and/or neglect and not be aware of it. Just because you didn’t grow up in a war zone doesn’t mean you didn’t suffer trauma. Just because you had a roof over your head and food on the table doesn’t mean you weren’t neglected.
