I believe that no universal way of treating people exists. Rather, one's cultural identity, personality traits, and presenting issues guide the way that I approach therapy with him or her. 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 clients develop their 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 at New York University while I work in private practice in Chelsea.
I adhere to a generalist model and work with adults of all ages in both individual and couples therapy. Additionally, I offer a full range of personality and vocational assessments. I have extensive experience working specifically with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, mens issues, substance abuse, and trauma and stress related disorders.
