I believe that no universal way of treating people exists. Rather, your cultural identity, personality traits, and presenting issues guide the way that I approach therapy with you. My therapeutic intent is to treat the person not the problem. Therefore, I adhere to a wellness perspective and a positive psychology framework to emphasize strengths and help you develop your sense of self in a collaborative and supportive way.
I have published research specifically examining the extent to which different theories might work better for different people and I use this research to inform my therapeutic work. I currently teach psychotherapy to graduate students in the Department of Applied Psychology at NYU while I work in private practice at Chelsea Behavioral Therapy.
I adhere to a generalist model and work with adults of all ages. I offer a full range of personality and vocational assessment options to clients. I have extensive experience working with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, mens issues, substance abuse, and trauma and stress related disorders.
