Therapy to Suit Your Needs

I offer creative and flexible scheduling that makes getting support easy and accessible for you.

You have the option of meeting with me in my NYC office or via Remote Therapy using a secure video chat platform that allows us to work together at a time and place that is most convenient for you.

In Westchester, I also offer in-home therapy so you can experience the wonderful benefits of therapy without the hassle of finding childcare or leaving home with an infant.

Coping with Infertility, Miscarriage and Loss

If you have difficulty conceiving or have experienced a pregnancy loss, I help you manage the difficult emotions, stress, and grief that accompany these issues. Whenever necessary, I provide direction to outside resources that you may need. Working with me, you will find compassion, support, and guidance throughout this complicated process.

Mood Changes and Anxiety

During pregnancy and after your baby is born, many women experience symptoms of depression (like feeling sad for no apparent reason) or have overwhelming anxiety about the baby or about being a mother that makes it difficult to get through the day. There are many possible reasons for this and it is important that you know when to seek support for yourself and for your baby's wellbeing.

MATERNAL MENTAL HEALTH 


Embracing Your Changing Role

A New Identity

Nothing can prepare you for the tremendous changes that happen when you become a parent. Maybe it seems like your life is overrun by routines or you feel out of control with the unpredictability of your baby's mood or sleep patterns. Roles and responsibilities must be renegotiated with your partner. Perhaps you miss aspects of your former life and identity. All of these factors can leave you feeling anxious and depressed. 

Adjustment to Stay-At-Home Parenting

Making the decision to be a stay-at-home parent is deeply personal and complex. It could be motivated by inadequate maternity and paternity leave policies or by the financial burden that comes with the high cost of childcare. This time with your child is undeniably special and rewarding, but at times it might feel overwhelming, exhausting, and lonely. You may also worry about reclaiming your professional identity when or if you decide to return to the workforce. 

How I Can Help

I will be your advocate helping you to navigate the challenges of your changing identity. You will be given the tools you need to find greater fulfillment in your ever-evolving role. Whether you are facing infertility, miscarriage and loss, are pregnant, on maternity leave, a stay-at-home parent, or are contemplating returning to work, I have the clinical expertise and firsthand knowledge to support you through these emotional transitions. I value a holistic approach to treatment and will connect you with complimentary care options and happily collaborate with other types of practitioners who can help along in this journey. Contact me and we will discuss developing a treatment plan that works for you.
