Life can sometimes become challenging and overwhelming.
We all have times when we could use some assistance in overcoming life’s diverse challenges. Whether you are dealing with something as specific as marital difficulty, depression or anxiety or whether you just want to feel more confident about yourself and your life choices, psychotherapy is a helpful tool to assist you on your journey. Together, we can work toward real change.
I founded Synergetic Psychotherapy to help people live their lives to the best of their ability, by developing a caring relationship in which to work toward mutually determined therapeutic goals.
I believe in the healing process of therapy, viewing it as a journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and change. I believe therapy to be a collaboration between therapist and client. The therapeutic relationship is essential. Therapy involves a commitment, so it is important that you feel comfortable with the person you select as your therapist. It is important that you feel a good “fit” in your relationship. As a therapist, I strive to develop a collaborative partnership characterized by warmth, openness, authenticity, and a non-judgmental stance. You are a very important and active part of the therapeutic process. As the client, you are the expert on yourself, while the therapist is the expert on the therapeutic process. During the course of treatment, clients experience increased awareness of their feelings, and they learn and practice skills for more effectively coping with those feelings. In addition, individuals often learn to open up and feel more comfortable with themselves, they often feel understood and validated, and they find increased balance and peace in their lives.
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) in private practice in New York City. In my practice, I see individuals, couples and families. I also facilitate ongoing psychotherapy groups.
