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.

*I’m conveniently located at 225 West 35th Street, Suite 701, NY, NY just a few blocks from Penn Station in Midtown and steps from most subway lines. I will also be opening up my office in Bergen County New Jersey in May 2015.

* Telephone and Web therapy  also available.

*I accept CIGNA, Empire BCBS/Blue Cross Blue Shield, ComPsych and MHN Health Net. I offer affordable prices for those paying out-of-pocket. For self-pay clients, my rate is $120 – $210 based on income, sliding fee available if needed.

*Free phone consultation available, call me at (646) 543-6784.  You can also email me at I’m very happy to talk if you’d like more information or have questions about therapy.
