As your psychotherapist, I’ll work to create a safe, supportive and nonjudgmental space where you can identify your concerns and explore effective ways to address them. My interventions draw from psychodynamic theory, attachment and narrative therapy.

Together, we will examine the experiences that have made you who you are and the patterns of behaviors, relationships and self-concepts that may or may not be serving you. We will work to find compassion, healing and solutions towards more personal and relational fulfillment. I am drawn towards working with individuals, couples and families that are ready to take an in depth look at themselves. I am particularly interested in the gap between the self that we present to the outer world and the self that we often try to hide. Areas of expertise: Addiction, cultural issues, anger management, anxiety, behavioral issues, children and adolescent health, depression, family conflict, men’s issues and peer relationships

I strongly believe change comes from a careful examination of yourself. I use a holistic approach to support you in exploring and accepting yourself. I offer my clients a safe space, where they can look within themselves without being judged, chastised, or overwhelmed.

I hope to guide you in finding ways to navigate life’s stressors, process trauma and experiences, and thrive in relationships with others. Our work together will be collaborative, and through this, I hope to help you create long-lasting change. I use a multi-modal approach in session, catering to the needs of my clients. I have extensive training in treating individuals with anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, family, and relationship issues. By using CBT, mindfulness, reality therapy, narrative therapy, and a person-centered approach, I encourage my clients to achieve their goals, understand their symptoms, and improve their quality of life.

I provide psychotherapy for individuals, couples, and seniors from all walks of life. My specialty areas include anxiety, depression, relational therapy, psycho-dynamic perspective, and LGBTQIA+ affirmative therapy.

“I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.” I utilize cognitive therapies (i.e., CBT, DBT), mindfulness, and strength-based modalities to facilitate behavioral change that helps children, adolescents, and adults cope with everyday life situations/stressors. My prior professional and clinical experiences include working extensively with children, adolescents, and their families from a strength-based perspective to mitigate the social ills of poverty. He is very passionate about social justice issues that affect impoverished communities. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Social Work from Lehman College and a Masters of Social Work from Fordham University with a concentration in Clinical and Macro Studies. I was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. I currently reside in Brooklyn, New York.
