Healing starts

with feeling heard.

I am a Psychotherapist, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, and Pastoral Counselor practicing in New York City.  I treat a wide range of mental, emotional, and psychological challenges and have special expertise in the areas of sex addiction, relationship trauma, LGBTQ issues, spiritual distress, career advancement, and fostering creative expression.

I work from a strengths perspective and use client-centered, positive psychology, along with evidence-based techniques including CBT, DBT, EMDR, Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Task-Based Models.

As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) I have trained with the leading clinicians and researchers in the field of sex addiction, including Patrick Carnes, Stefanie Carnes, Robert Weiss, Ken Adams, and others. For 25 years I have worked with addicts recovering from sex addiction and have presented numerous workshops and seminars on sex addiction and recovery.

I work with both individuals and couples, and also offer group therapy.
