Typical clients who receive my services are professionally successful, but privately miserable. Your colleagues believe you're smart, strong and confident, but what you really feel is depressed, anxious and lonely. When you leave work each day all your confidence and vitality seems to drain away and you become this other person; you dread going home. Everything in your social and personal life feels so overwhelming and filled with problems. How much of this rings true for you?
Publicly pretending you're fine just keeps the problems circling around in your head with no solutions, but imagine if you could feel better, have clarity in your thinking, good sleep and energy through-out the day. Imagine living without chronic, draining depression or anxiety; imagine being able to experience and enjoy good relationships. Think about that for a minute. If you could have help to achieve these things, how would your life be better? What would your relationships be like?
I can help you to achieve these things. Choosing to work with me means that together we will engage in a process tailored to support you to discover your unique ways to resolve your emotional struggles. You will rediscover your curiosity and hope for a more fulfilling life and create relationships that reflect who they really are.
I have had the opportunities to work in a variety of settings in both the UK and US with individuals who knew they had the potential to achieve more, but had become stuck in the old negative habits. This was true for my clients in the Inner London Probation Service in the UK, for the adolescents in residences in Upstate New York, with families in crisis in Brooklyn New York, or in outpatient mental health clinics and programs in Manhattan.
In each setting it was clear that behind the repeated disappointments were some common experiences that left people struggling with problems related to anxiety, depression, old traumas and problems with anger that affected the stability of their relationships and their ability to recapture their joy of living. People who work with me learn to overcome their challenges and live lives that match their true values and reconnect with their feelings of joy and hope for their future. Yes, change can be difficult, but you don't have to keep struggling alone. I have supported many people to successfully resolve these kinds of problems (and others) and I'm here to help you too. I know that making the initial call can be hard, but when you're ready, take a deep breath and call me at 347-645-8101 and let's talk about how we can work together.

Specialties & Issues
Some of my clients report their struggles with managing their anger, irritability and moments of poor impulse control. While these moments serve to exacerbate the other problems, I can weave in my specialized training in anger management in a seamless way that will allow you to feel hopeful and in control.
Over the years my clients have repeatedly confirmed my belief that within everyone is the potential to make really powerful choices for change. Women come to find ways to take charge of their bouts of depression and anxiety, and start making relationship choices that are free of old painful cycles. As you reconnect to your personal values the result is that you confidently reclaim your power to make choices that align with your core values; you can stop the revolving door in your relationships and create the security of supportive partnerships and the lifestyle you really want.

I am an out-of-network provider and although I do not accept insurance plans, I do provide clients with the required documentation so that they can seek the level of reimbursement that their insurance plans may provide. Each client will need to contact their insurance plan to clarify if they are eligible for out-of-network benefits and the level of reimbursement.
