ABOUT

Therapy is one of the most courageous and valuable investments you can make in yourself, your life, and your future. I am here to help you on this journey. In our work together you will have a safe space to explore the landscape of your inner life - your relationships with yourself and others, your challenges and strengths, your hopes and struggles. By developing a deeper understanding of your own inner workings, we will help you get in touch with your innate ability to heal, grow, and direct your life in a better direction. 

I am a clinical social worker (MSW) with training in psychodynamic and family systems therapy, as well as experiential modalities including body-centered therapy, mindfulness-based therapy and psychodrama. I integrate various approaches to help individuals, couples and families develop the skills for more fulfilling modes of being and healthier relationships.

Traditional talk therapy is extremely useful in bringing our life stories to the surface, and helping us understand our lives and our current predicament with greater depth, clarity and compassion. But sometimes, the insights we gain from talking about our experiences is not enough to make changes at a ground level. This is where experiential therapeutic approaches offer a critical additional piece. Rather than speaking about something that happened in the past, we can actually work with our life stories in the present moment and get in touch with the ways that our experiences have been stored in our bodies and minds, and govern our patterns of thought, emotion and reactivity. Working with these experiences in the here and now can help us know and understand ourselves more fully, and enable us to develop new ways of being that are not predetermined by our past experiences. Regardless of the particular approaches we may use, the heart of my work is to attune myself to your needs - to see you for who you are, be sensitive to your particular situation, and work together with you to find the best way forward.  

My work is informed by science and practiced with compassion, and is enriched by years of experience as a Rabbi and teacher of Jewish spirituality and meditation. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into my office.
