Supportive Psychotherapy

To reduce sadness and anxiety, you need understanding and authentic supportive therapy. The therapy I provide is not problem centered, but strengths based. We will rediscover the elements that make you a good, effective, valuable person. You are not defined by your missteps or by your problems. We work through your problems and experiences, while normalizing the thoughts and feelings you’re experiencing. Through genuine, empathic support and warm, down-to-earth rapport, I  help you feel more like yourself.

My New York office location is currently 108 1/2  East 37th Street, New York, NY, 10016. My Teaneck New Jersey location is 121 Cedar Lane, Teaneck, NJ, 07666.

Finances:  If you have an insurance plan that I am not in-network with, I work with out-of-network plans. I offer assistance in getting the most out of your out of network benefits. If you don’t know what your out of network benefits are on your insurance plan (most people don’t), I will take your information and reach out to the insurance company for you to find out all the necessary information, then I can share it with you in an easy to understand way. I will find this out for you whether you choose to work with me or not. I will then handle the rest of the paper work, so there is nothing that you have to submit  or follow up on.

I am now in Network with Medicare of NY!

I offer affordable prices for those paying out-of-pocket. For self-pay clients, my rate is $110 – $150 depending on on income level.


***I am currently seeing all clients via Skype, FaceTime, zoom, or by telephone session. If there is another form of video conferencing software that I haven’t mentioned but you are most comfortable with, please let me know!
