Practice Frequently Asked Questions
What is your therapeutic approach?
I start with a client-centered approach where I utilize evidence based treatments to help my clients experience relief, peace, and success. Techniques can include, but are not limited to, BWRT, hypnosis, hypnoanalysis, traditional psychotherapy, psychodynamic therapy, Ego State Therapy, and WSN.
What do you specialize in?
I specialize in the treatment of Chronic Illness including Tinnitus (ringing in the ears). I also specialize in anxiety, fears, and trauma. This can also include unwanted behaviors and goal achievement. I believe that focusing on a few key issues in my practice allows me to be more effective and experienced, which gives you the best opportunity for improvement.
How long, and how frequent are therapy sessions?
Our initial session is approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours in length, where we will discuss why you have come, your goals, expectations, and personal history. Subsequent sessions can be anywhere between 45 and 90 minutes, depending on the approach we are taking. Frequency is determined through pre-session information that I gather from you as well as our first session together. I am always assessing as we work together and will discuss any change to frequency and/or methodology. My goal is for us to always be on the same page when working together.
How long will I be in therapy?
Length of therapy varies, and depends on the reason why you have come to see me. In general, the number of sessions is related to the issue and its severity. With BWRT, you may only need 1 session. However, depending on what brings you to work with me, the number of sessions varies greatly. It’s best to contact me to openly discuss and estimate what our time working together may look like.
Who do you work with?
I work with all ages – as long as it is in my area of specialization. Otherwise I will refer you to a qualified therapist or discuss your options.
Where are you located?
I am located in Larchmont, New York, a suburb of New York City. My office is conveniently located across from the Larchmont Train Station for easy access by train and near major highways for easy access by car.
Do you do therapy over the phone or webcam?
As our technology has advanced, I can work with you via Skype, FaceTime, and Zoom. I offer FREE phone consultations and, on occasion, will conduct appointments over the phone as well.
Do you accept insurance?
The only in-network provider I accept is Medicare.
I am considered a “reimbursable” therapist in the state of New York.
With all other health insurance providers, if you get out-of-network benefits, you may be able to receive some or all reimbursement of my fee as an ‘out-of-network’ provider. I will provide you with all the necessary information, so you can explore this possibility with your healthcare provider if you so choose before we meet.
What are your fees?
Fees are dependent upon length of appointment so please contact me for specific fees as they may change/vary.
What are your hours?
I offer appointments Monday through Friday by appointment only. I am also available some evenings during the week.
How do I schedule an appointment?

I look forward to helping in any way that I can.
