Psychologist In New York - Qualified Professional Help

MY APPROACH - Therapy in New York

Some clients have told me that they tried
psychotherapy in the past and shared much with the therapist, but ultimately left feeling they received little in return. That’s because many therapists sit quietly in the background and do not offer constructive feedback or tell you what they are thinking. I approach things differently and over my 25 years of experience working as a psychologist in New York City, I have always been straightforward and interactive with clients.

My main priority is to create a setting in which you feel comfortable, understood and free to express yourself. But I am also not afraid or reluctant to give you the direct feedback you need to hear. And, unlike many other therapists, I also sometimes use humor in my work. I see no contradiction between being playful while remaining a serious and focused
healer. You can read more about my treatment areas for Individuals, Couples and Teenagers.
