Welcome to my website
I am a highly experienced, analytically-trained, licensed psychotherapist and certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. In addition, I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) providing counseling services in New York City. I have had the opportunity to play a significant role in helping clients resolve issues in their lives, overcome obstacles, and heal, using contemporary techniques such as Clinical Hypnosis and Somatic Experiencing. Current research shows us the importance of dealing with mind and body as a whole, rather than focusing separately on thoughts, emotions, or physical manifestations of bodily symptoms.
Every person is an individual, and it is of utmost importance for me to understand your unique concerns, experiences, style, and goals. Our first meeting is a consultation in which I gain an understanding of the issues that are of concern to you. From that information we develop an appropriate individualized psychotherapy treatment program which facilitates your being able to make the necessary changes to overcome obstacles, and allows for the growth needed to lead you to mind and body wholeness.
