Not just talking, but new ideas and new approaches

In individual therapy, we would meet once a week for 45 minutes to discuss your issues and concerns—though this can be more frequent depending on your needs and preferences.  People sometimes wonder how merely talking could help in the first place.  This is an excellent question, but keep in mind that therapy is not simply an everyday conversation.  A good therapist can use his or her knowledge to understand you differently than friends and family can, and help you to see yourself differently as well.  This opens the door for new ways of thinking about your problems and your life.

Throughout this site I describe the perspective, insight and solutions I strive to provide through therapy, and My Approach page can give you a clearer sense of what this might look like.  If you have additional questions, or would like to learn more about my approach, please do not hesitate to call or email me.


Virtual Therapy

I also offer virtual therapy: individual therapy over Skype or FaceTime for people who live in New York State but are outside of the city.  This allows me to offer therapy services to clients who are unable to commute to my office.  Meeting in person is always ideal, but these innovations allow for effective therapy even when face-to-face meetings aren’t possible.  Unfortunately, because of licensing laws, I cannot offer virtual therapy outside of New York State, but if you are in the state and interested in these services feel free to reach out to me.
