Is worrying getting in the way of enjoying a quality life? Are you experiencing low self-worth, feeling "less than"? Are your relationships with family, friends, and/or romantic partners struggling? Do you lack meaningful relationships and need help in dating and making friends? Is now your time to live a more graceful and elegant existence? Do you have concerns about sex? Do you suffer from migraine headaches or have anxiety about your health? If any of these sound familiar, I have 15+ years of experience helping people just like you, and would truly LOVE to work with you!
I take great pride in being a caring and skilled therapist and am tremendously committed to my patients' well-being. It gives me great joy to see my people succeed in their lives! I use a personalized approach; our work together will be tailored to your individual needs so that you may quickly experience an improvement in the quality of your life and regain the peace and joy you so desperately seek. It would be my pleasure to share effective, evidence-based tools (not just tips!) to help you overcome the challenges that are confronting you, to help you build a richer and more rewarding existence.
I work with Individuals, Couples and Families to find solutions to the problems that prevent them from enjoying their lives. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, stress management, problems with interpersonal relationships -- including dating, marriage, family and couples therapy, divorce prevention, work stress, communication issues, infidelity and sexuality concerns (I have personally taught the class "Clinical Treatment of Male Sexual Dysfunction" as well as the general psychology "Student Practicum" class at Columbia). I welcome patients from all backgrounds and orientations. My work treating mood disorders also extends to include the treatment of postpartum anxiety and sadness, work-related issues and also includes migraine headache prevention and treating psychosomatic disorders (or TMS); I have personally been migraine-free for 26+ years. I respect and adhere to all HIPAA privacy practices and our work would be confidential and non-judgmental (even if you think we have a friend or neighbor in common).
By visiting this site you've taken the first steps toward finding a therapist, an excellent decision if you desire professional support and guidance to help you successfully handle life's challenges.
