CBT - the Answer to Anxiety and Stress.
My approach to therapy is aimed at achieving tangible progress, working with clients to improve their daily lives. I direct a team of psychologists on the Upper West Side of New York, using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to work with clients. CBT is an evidence-based therapy which is action-oriented, short-term, and practical. It is a powerful tool for addressing depression, stress, relationship or identity issues, family problems, fears, or traumatic memories.

CBT can help you improve your mood, reduce your anxiety, and enrich your relationships

Traditional therapy often focuses heavily on self-knowledge and insight. While self-knowledge is helpful, usually it is not enough to produce real, tangible improvement. If this has been your experience, it may be time for a new kind of therapy – one which is oriented toward action. I believe that understanding ourselves is just part of the process, and I will do my best to help you take the steps which come after understanding and lead to growth.
