in NYC & Westchester
I am a psychotherapist practing in New York City and Westchester County. I offer this website as assistance to anyone who wants to better understand psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, couples therapy and marital counseling. I’ve described these both in general, and in the specific ways that I have developed them in order to be most effective. I offer these ideas as broad outlines and possibilities, rather than as prescriptions, as my experience has been that it is very important to tailor the treatment to each unique person and couple, rather than to make assumptions about how to help someone before I know them.
One of the approaches to psychotherapy that I use is commonly known as Jungian therapy or Jungian analysis, developed by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. While Jung himself drew from other psychologists and urged therapists to match the treatment to the individual, his own contribution was in understanding what people were trying unconsciously to work through and accomplish in their psychological problems. Jung also suggested that as we understand how best to fulfill our own personal, individual nature, becoming more whole and authentic, our psychological struggles take on meaning and suffering is diminished.
This website is also offered to those who want to find a psychotherapist in Westchester or New York City, and would like to know more about my own way of working before they meet with me for a consultation. I work with adults (starting at age 17) who are suffering from a broad range of problems, including depression, anxiety, and relationship issues.
If you have questions please feel free to contact me via e-mail or by phone at either of my locations.
