About

Frum Therapist in Brooklyn, NY

As a licensed psychotherapist, I am passionate about helping children, adolescents, and adults define and achieve their goals while learning to enjoy their wellness journey.

My psychotherapy style is warm, direct, and collaborative. While I honor the therapeutic relationship above all else, I also want my clients to experience real change in a relatively short period of time. I want therapy to be a tool that gives you tools, not only a tool that you keep needing to borrow. I, therefore, approach this work from a relationship and skills-based perspective.

I begin our work by helping you identify specific challenges you experience, while I listen for patterns and themes that run through your life. By exploring patterns and identifying goals, we partner to help you regain a centered, calm, and balanced position in your life. From this place of strength, we set out to refine and achieve your goals.

My experience as a psychotherapist is coupled with over 30 years of experience as an educator and principal, which allows me to deeply understand the struggles of children and parents as they navigate mental health stressors in the school and home systems.

I specialize in treating all forms of anxiety, depression, OCD (even the most severe scrupulosity!), relationship issues, and emotional regulation. A significant portion of my practice is also devoted to coaching parents on how to effectively parent children with anxiety, OCD, and related mental health struggles without sacrificing their own mental health and/or spousal relationship.
