Pastoral Counseling

Sometimes questions

can be

more enlightening than answers.

 

Everyone has a spiritual belief system, for some it's religious in nature, for others it is completely non-religious.  For many it is somewhere in between. But everyone is guided by some set of beliefs – conscious or not – about the world, the universe, and the very nature of humanity.   These beliefs – for better or worse – profoundly influences how we move through life.

I believe that exploring our belief systems is an essential part of the therapeutic process.   As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a Masters Degree in Pastoral Counseling and Spiritual Care, I am very comfortable exploring and supporting your spiritual growth as part of your journey toward a full, happy, healthy, and well integrated life. I work with people of all faith traditions including those who identify as agnostic or atheist.

I am proud to serve as a staff therapist at the Psychotherapy and Spirituality Institute, an organization that has, for more than 40 years, provided highly professional, spiritually-informed, psychotherapy to New Yorkers of every background and faith tradition.  I also serve as a consulting therapist at the St. Francis Counseling Center in Manhattan, and assist with the training of Masters Degree students in the Pastoral Counseling Program at Fordham University's Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education.
