    My Approach to Helping

    Do you worry more than you want to, or struggle with feeling stressed and overwhelmed? If you want to be less anxious and more relaxed, I can help. I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in helping clients with anxiety issues. I teach practical CBT techniques that will help you manage distress and feel calmer. I also utilize insight oriented interventions that can increase your awareness of the behavioral dynamics that contribute to your anxiety. My goal is to help you become more in touch with your feelings and thoughts, allowing you to feel more in control, less stressed, and happier with your life. People who I work with often have increased career and relationship satisfaction.

    I have clinical training from Yeshiva University, New York University, and Harvard Medical School in cognitive therapy, mindfulness and psychodynamic therapy.

    Specific Issue(s) I’m Skilled at Helping With

    I specialize in treating patients with perfectionism. This is a trait common in high achievers who experience great distress if they perceive they have fall short of their goals.

    Anger management is also an area that I specialize in. I help patient’s manage their anger more effectively and gain insight into the underlying roots.
