I am a psychotherapist and journalist based in Brooklyn. I work with adults and couples at group practices in Downtown Brooklyn and Midtown Manhattan.

My approach: I became a therapist because I believe that all of us have the potential to change and grow into better, more satisfied versions of our selves. My goal is to help you identify how you want to live and the blocks that are preventing you from getting there. My approach is interactive (I don’t sit in stony silence) and spacious: I create a judgment-free zone in which you can explore the issues that are causing you stress, unhappiness or frustration.

My training: I studied interpersonal psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the William Alanson White Institute and couples therapy through the Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy. I received my Master of Social Work degree from New York University, where I was a member of the Phi Alpha honor society. I graduated magna cum laude from Hamilton College with a degree in psychology.

My writing: I have worked as a writer and editor at national magazines and newspapers, including Real Simple and Money, and continue to write about psychological wellbeing for The New York Times and other media outlets. My writing greatly informs my work with individuals and couples—I am always considering how the real world influences our mental health. You can read more of my work here.
