Are you experiencing stress related to aging, illness, or the loss of a loved one? Are you a parent or grandparent experiencing problems in your relationship with your adult child or your grandchild? I’m a licensed clinical social worker and a psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience working with older adults struggling with these sorts of issues.
First, a little bit about myself. Over the course of my career, I have worked at three of New York City’s most prestigious medical centers, providing psychotherapy to patients in outpatient psychiatry and medical programs. I have extensive experience working with older adults on their concerns related to ageing, including: Medical illness and the challenge of navigating the medical system; loss of physical capacity; caregiving; family issues; grief and bereavement; and other matters. I have also heard my clients describe the many positives that come with ageing: Greater wisdom, more acceptance of life’s twists and turns with increased feelings of contentment and satisfaction; deepened spirituality; the joys of grandchildren; and senior citizen discounts. I currently maintain a private practice and work part time with the Weill Cornell Department of Geriatric Psychiatry in a community-based program that serves older crime victims and victims of elder abuse.
As a first step of our journey together, we will work closely to determine what you are hoping to get out of therapy, and how we can best collaborate to help you reach your goals and find solutions to whatever stressors you may be experiencing. Psychotherapy is a proven path to emotional wellbeing. For your benefit, I use an eclectic approach that allows us to tailor our work in a way that most benefits you. Modalities I use include cognitive-behavioral emotive therapy (understanding the connections between our thoughts, our emotions, and how we behave); positive psychology; body-oriented psychotherapy that opens up the healing power of the mind-body connection; and trauma-informed therapy. I am LGBTQ-I affirming and strive to be culturally sensitive in my work with clients of all ethnicities. I have certifications in rational-emotive behavioral therapy, yoga psychotherapy, intermediate hypnotherapy, and am currently training in Advanced Integrative Therapy. I have a particular interest in supporting people who wish to explore the role of spirituality and/or religion in their life. This includes people who do not adhere to any formal religious beliefs who may identify as secular or humanistic.
The therapeutic relationship we develop is a cornerstone of your wellness journey. I will provide a caring, nonjudgmental setting where you feel safe and respected and are invited to share. I look forward to working together as partners as we progress on the path to your greater happiness and personal fulfillment.
