There’s a moment I love in a therapy room:  A client will be talking, then suddenly they stop and say,

“Oh wait, I just criticized myself.”

  That first moment I see them catch themselves in a self-defeating habit is wonderful to witness.

Because once you become aware of something, you can begin changing it.

I know from that point on, things are going to shift for them.  And it doesn’t take long to get there. I could tell you that I have 30 years of experience as a therapist, that I’m a former board member of the New York Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy.  That I earned two master’s degrees and use the best of multiple therapeutic models to help you.
But frankly, it might interest you more to know that I’ve always been the one my friends would go to to talk about their issues.  And I genuinely wanted to hear more from them.  I became curious why they were struggling, and why I sometimes struggled – probably much more curious than the average kid would be.  As far back as 7th grade, I’d pull magazines from the school library and devour articles about depression, anxiety, and emotions.  I wanted to understand what was happening.  To absolutely no one’s surprise, I studied psychology in college and graduate school. Now, many years later, I still love helping people identify where they want to be, then helping them get there.

And it doesn’t take as long as you think.

Walking with someone as they go from being unaware of the internal obstacles getting in their way, to becoming aware of them, to finally deciding to do things differently, has kept me riveted in my chair for over three decades.  Over and over I have watched people create joy and relief where previously they felt stuck.  I would love to hear about what’s happening in your life, and what you’d like to see happen differently.  Because together, we can get there. Why not book a brief, free consult with me?  I’m guessing you’ll know within the first few minutes of chatting whether I’m the therapist you’ve been looking for.  Ask your questions and we will go from there.
