I provide individual and couples' sex therapy and psychotherapy services for adolescents and adults. I am licensed in New York and Minnesota. I offer in-person therapy in New York City and have an office in the Chelsea neighborhood.  I have tele-health options available for both New York and Minnesota residents. I have also obtained an Authority to Practice Interjurisdictional Telepsychology (APIT) from the PSYPACT Commission, meaning that I have the capacity to offer tele-health therapy services to individuals in states that have joined PSYPACT. See the list of participating PSYPACT states below.

As a psychologist and sex therapist, I have training in and work with a wide variety of general mental health concerns and have a specific specialty and advanced training in sexual health and gender. Please see below for a (non-exhaustive) list of clinical issues and concerns I work with. Please free to contact me if you are unsure if I have the right areas of experience/ interest for you.  

Therapeutic Philosophy and Approach
Finding Authenticity

At its most basic, my guiding goal in therapy is to aid others in finding, engaging with, and expressing their most authentic selves.  Operating from a point of authenticity and self-truth can often create a clearer guide in navigating fears and hurts, making decisions, and building meaningful relationships with others.

Authenticity for Better Sex

For those looking to work on their sexual lives and selves, I have seen countless examples of ways in which authenticity can also help build sexual health and satisfaction.  Being able to identify and lean into who we want or may need to be from a sexual, romantic, and relational standpoint can create a more stable foundation to support the types of sexual experiences and lives we want to have.

Joining You in the Challenge

While simple to describe or ask of someone, the process of approaching and navigating certain truths can be a complex and challenging practice. I see my role as a guide and companion on your journey while holding the goals you provide as a priority, even when achieving them may require traversing some rocky waters. As a therapist, I tend to be informal in my conversation style and direct in my feedback.  I enjoy being able to create a space where humor and joy can exist in equal measure with struggle, fear, and pain.

I see therapy as the process of learning how to have casual conversations about difficult things.

What is Sex Therapy?
Misconceptions About Sex Therapy

There are a lot of misconceptions about what sex therapy actually is. Not to burst the bubble of something more exciting or salacious, but really sex therapy is the same as general psychotherapy, but with a provider who has specific training and expertise in sexual health.   Opposed to general psychotherapy, there may be more specific and direct dialogues related to sex, sexuality, sexual behavior, etc.

Boundaries in Sex Therapy & Psychotherapy

Just as should be true in general psychotherapy, you will never be pushed into or asked to speak about things in ways that you feel unready for or feel uncomfortable to you.  Your boundaries in speaking about sex and sexuality (or really anything that feels important or meaningful to you) are paramount in creating an effective space for growth and change. For some, learning how to speak about sex and sexuality in ways that feel safe is an important therapeutic goal and creates the opportunity for practicing these skills for continued use with others.

Sex & Our Whole Selves

Because sexual health does not occur in a vacuum, sex therapy may also include conversations about your general mental health and well-being.  We live multi-dynamic, complex lives. Sometimes to better understand a piece of the puzzle we must look at the whole picture.

Good Faith Estimates

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit
