I’ve been a psychotherapist for over ten years. I was trained in a variety of techniques while doing graduate work at NYU, and I draw upon my knowledge of psychology, life coaching, and meditation traditions to help people move forward on their unique life paths. Unlike the stereotypical therapist who only listens and nods his head while you tell him about your childhood, my style is engaged and focused on what you need now. So we may do some analysis of what’s happened to you in the past, but more often we focus more on present problems, solutions, and goals.
While working with me, people experience both internal and external shifts. I offer a safe space for you to be yourself; it is from that place that healing and growth can best happen. We’ll stay focused on what you need.
Whether we’re working on decreasing your anxiety, improving your romantic life, or helping you make a major life change like quitting your job, our work together will help you build confidence and start trusting your own intuition more.
My varied experiences (from my NYC birthplace to Peace Corps in Bangladesh to adventures at Burning Man) have shown me how human beings struggle and thrive. Along the way I’ve had many teachers who have supported me on my personal growth journey. I hope to be a positive influence on your path as well.
