I'm a psychotherapist in New York City and Westport, Connecticut. I help young professionals who are trying to find their way. As a born and raised New Yorker, I have a strong understanding of the desire and drive many of us have to succeed, and the pressure that comes along with it. I also work with those struggling with eating disorders, such as binge eating, anorexia and bulimia.
My orientation as a therapist is psychodynamic, which is a way of understanding yourself that is rooted in early life experiences and unconscious processes. Psychodynamic work helps you put words to your current experience by exploring the "stuff" of the past, especially your childhood and family dynamics. I also integrate behavioral interventions such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to help you address present-day patterns and difficulties.
My past professional experiences include working with 9/11 survivors, adults with chronic medical conditions, and adolescents coping with family stressors.
