Jewish psychologist serving the community in Manhattan, NY
Therapy can help you effect change in your life and make it more meaningful, fuller, more joyful, or more vibrant. It is wonderful that you are taking this first step in gaining possibilities for yourself. Life can be full of tension and it is helpful to talk with someone who can empower you and help you find your calm, your center, and your action. I will approach your care without assumptions or judgments, but with curiosity and an intent for us to both be surprised and create and discover new experiences that facilitate an amazing life.
I specialize in helping people who have experienced loss, neglect, or abuse and/or are struggling with intense and painful anxiety, fear, sadness, despair, and a lack of meaning or direction. People I work with experience me as genuinely caring, thoughtful, and passionate and find relief and rejuvenation in a space of containing that we create together.
I have extensive experience working with religious community members, in Israel and in NYC. I am aware of the nuances, sensitivities, and challenges of the myriad of Jewish communities and denominations, but will learn most about your experience from you. I believe that our relationships with our community and our inner spiritual-religious life are vital parts of our well being and am happy to help you explore, deepen, and navigate related challenges and changes.
I work across the lifespan and help children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly - individually, as couples, or as families. I am not in-network with a specific health insurance plan but I can help navigate your out of network benefits and offer a sliding scale based on your financial ability. Please feel free to contact me to discuss any of this further.
