WHO I AM
I am a Psychologist who provides Individual and Group psychotherapy to adults and couples.
I am an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and am Past President of the New York City Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Association.
WHY CHOOSE ME
I have more than 30 years of experience helping individuals just like you overcome their anxieties, depressions, phobias, OCDs, relationship problems as well as manage their anger and stress issues.
I am very proud of a 90% success rate. This high success is due to my practice of continually refining my approach so as to tailor it to the specific needs of my patients.
I care about my patients. I take time with them. Each of my sessions is one hour. I am available in the evenings or on the week-end if someone needs to speak with me.
Psychologists, though often very well trained, are still people and sometimes the way a person approaches a situation is not the right one for you. The way to find a therapist is to meet him or her. You should determine if you think the person knows what he or she is doing, that you feel understood, and that you feel comfortable. If you check out some of the reviews people have written, you can see what some of my patients felt about their experience with me. Call for an appointment and see if you think I can help you.
