NYC Teachers

As an ex-NYC teacher, I understand the unique stresses that teachers are faced with. That is why many of my patients are teachers. We all know the job of a teacher is demanding, yet so few teachers give themselves adequate care, leading to burn out.

If you're feeling burnt out, if you're dreading the start of the school year, or just having a hard time with work/life balance, give me a call. Together we can sort through the stresses you're burdened by, and allow you to be the best teacher you can be.

As the frontline of the fight against child mistreatment and neglect, ACS workers are subjected to a tremendous amount of stress and secondary trauma. These workers deserve nothing but the best support available to ensure they can continue doing this essential work for our community.

​It is my privilege to work with these everyday superheroes.

Our practice appreciates the tremendous effort required to run a city like New York. To show our appreciation for the public servants of NYC, we offer a free consultation to all city employees.

To say that NYC law enforcement officers face challenges different from those of the past is an understatement.

For some, it may seem like the city is returning to the violence and instability of 1970's NYC.

​The stresses on police officers in New York City are enormous. In the changing environment officers face, many are finding it helpful to see a therapist who works specifically with police officers, yet is unaffiliated with the NYPD in any way, and therefore is under no requirements to report what is said (unless an explicit desire to hurt themselves or someone else is expressed.)

​Some of the benefits officers have gotten from therapy with me include:

  • Having a TRULY confidential space OUTSIDE of the department to air feelings about the job and challenges they face.
  • Having access to a professional who can help them navigate the unique pressures they face, the everyday potential for danger, the pressure of lawsuits, and the misinterpretations of the general public.
  • Couples therapy with a therapist who understands the stress of the job. The demanding and unpredictable schedule, the danger of everyday work, the difficulty "turning off" the cop mentality at home, etc.
  • Lowering the risk of domestic violence, suicide, and addiction, rates of which are alarmingly higher among police officers than the general public.

If you are a police officer in NYC, thank you for your service, doing a job which is necessary, puts you in harms way, keeps us safe, and is often misunderstood.

Let me know if I can be of service to you.
