I use science based approaches in my practice. While I may incorporate a variety of methods (mindfulness, acceptance and commitment, emotion regulation), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is the approach that informs much of the work I do with others. CBT is evidenced-based (supported by research), skill-based, and goal-focused. The process includes education, understanding individual or family patterns, monitoring progress, and the learning and application of skills targeting what we do (behaviors), what we think (cognitions), and how we feel (emotions). Woven throughout therapy is a focus on values and fostering positive connections.



I am licensed in New York and Connecticut. I work with many people from the New York Metropolitan area (Brooklyn, Manhattan, Long Island, Westchester) and Fairfield County (Ridgefield, Wilton, Westport). All services are provided via telehealth although there may be opportunities to meet for an intake in Mt. Kisco, NY or Ridgefield, CT. In most cases telehealth is as effective as in person care and is widely covered by most insurance companies.
