LIVE BETTER. EXPERIENCE MORE.
I am a psychologist licensed both in California and New York where I help people overcome barriers in their life with a non-judgmental, evidence-based approach.
I am hopeful to empower you so you experience growth through support and understanding. Your goals, your self-esteem, your relationships, and your every day life can be bettered through psychotherapy, and for over twenty years I have helped people just like you change their lives.
I believe we are all important and all deserve to experience happiness. I believe self-reflection
allows us to face our inner fears and helps us to direct our outer lives in ways that are productive, empowering, insightful and smart.
I look forward to helping your
