Jewish Therapist in Cedarhurst, NY

I have been working as a therapist for 5 years now, and my goal has remained constant. That is, to help you be effective no matter life’s circumstances. I often work with adolescents and their parents, young adults, and adults. My clients often struggle with feelings of worthlessness, self-doubt, emotion regulation, relationship difficulties and various problem behaviors. The common thread is the desire to deal with the difficult emotions and behaviors, making meaningful changes.

I begin treatment by encouraging you to enumerate your short-term and long-term life goals. This process in itself is challenging for many people, as they simply have never defined and verbalized their goals. With your goals in mind we can identify, target, and treat current and past obstacles that stand in the way of meaningful change. Often, feelings of anxiety or depression or problematic behaviors seem like an insurmountable mountain, through clearly and specifically stating your goals we carve a path over that mountain.

I am a trained and practicing DBT therapist, DBT is my passion. I often teach a practical skills to help problem-solve, while at the same time understanding and addressing the root of the problem from an emotional, situational, relational, and historical context. Additionally, I am trained in DBT-PE and TF-CBT for trauma, as well as CBT for anxiety and depression.

I look forward to working together with you, helping you to understand and achieve your goals. Feel free to give me a call for a complimentary phone consultation to see if we are a good match.
