Licensed Psychologist (NY, MD)
Licensed Psychologist (DC)
Are you feeling worried, depressed, anxious, frustrated, fearful, or stressed? Are your fears and worries inhibiting you from being where you would like to be? I strongly believe in developing a safe and accepting therapeutic relationship where you can work through the issues that are holding you back to build a better future. Are you experiencing relationship difficulties, suffering from an addiction, struggling with work or school challenges, or having trouble with parenting or family conflicts? Are you having difficulties eating or sleeping? I'll work with you to identify and resolve the core issues that are keeping you stuck.
In therapy, we will use a customized approach based on what works for you and your situation that focuses on your unique challenges. I will work with you to change the patterns that are affecting your ability to have fulfilling relationships, be your best self, and move forward.
I work with adults, adolescents, children, couples, and families of all backgrounds with depression, anxiety, trauma, C-PTSD, grief/loss, work concerns, and more. There are many ways to heal and promote growth and I look forward to helping you find your path to healing for a better life.
