Help you can trust.

New York City is exciting and vibrant but it also can be hectic, stressful, and overwhelming.

There are tools and strategies you can learn for a deeper understanding of the emotional undercurrents of your life and relationships.



Whether you’re trying to improve your mood, change a behavior, or better navigate your emotions, we help make those goals a reality.



 Are you navigating co-parenting, communication, infidelity, or intimacy issues?

You want it to work. We’ll talk you through it. 



Those related to you can elicit the strongest love and the deepest pain.

Improve communication, resolve conflict, practice boundaries, and create sustainable patterns.

“New York City is a community unlike any other. Our experiences are distinct, our neighborhoods are diverse, and our beliefs are varied. New Yorkers are full of strength, resilience, and determination. In the face of adversity or challenge, you rise to the occasion and triumph.

You may experience a complex mix of success and challenge in creating a life filled with meaning and purpose. New York can be loud, stressful, and lonely. With therapy, it can be peaceful, intentional, and supported.”
