I have a doctorate degree in Jurisprudence and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a New York City born and raised psychotherapist.
As a therapist who was a lawyer for over 25 years, I am uniquely positioned to work with lawyers, professionals, and executives in high stress demanding occupations, who are dealing with issues of anxiety, depression, self-esteem, substance abuse, work life balance, career dissatisfaction, and the relational challenges that often stem from high-pressure occupations.
I also enjoy working with younger populations having been a part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters team for over a decade, and through my work counseling mandated youth with substance abuse and emotional problems. The techniques I use in treatment vary because I believe that each person’s needs and innate ability to heal are different.
The techniques used will be selected in collaboration with you and based on the goals and needs we establish together in treatment. I commonly draw from the psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, cognitive behavioral, person-centered, and strength-based therapies. I am
also a trained mindfulness-based stress reduction instructor and believe in incorporating mindfulness and spiritual philosophies in my treatment.
In my spare time, I enjoy running, biking, fishing, and listening to music. I love the thrill of training and competition, and this has led me into marathons, triathlons and other high performance events.
