Through individual therapy sessions, I aim to help individuals if they feel stuck in life. Or if they are struggling with a certain element in their life such as work or relationships.

Together, we will identify patterns and behaviors that are causing this struggle, and take action to change things. Our work will help you to take better care of yourself, and cope with the challenges in your life.

My marriage counseling can help you and your partner understand one another better while solving the problems you are both facing. My process begins with talking to you individually for several months, followed by couples sessions.

My group therapy sessions are a safe place that includes a small number of people meeting weekly to discuss the challenges they are facing in life. Whether it be feelings of anxiety, depression, or struggles with relationships, I will help to guide you through to overcome these struggles in your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there free parking?2021-06-14T14:52:10+00:00

Yes, the building has a parking lot with plenty of available parking at no cost.

What are the benefits of a free consultation?2021-08-06T02:31:20+00:00

Meeting with the therapist before beginning therapy is extremely important for the client. You’ll want to see if you feel comfortable with the therapist’s style, get a sense of their background and experience, and evaluate whether you’d feel safe and respected by them. During the consultation you can ask the therapist any questions or address any concerns that you may have.

Where is the office located?2021-06-14T14:52:29+00:00

The physical address for Harbor Counseling is 522 N State Rd #201, Briarcliff Manor, NY 10510.  The office is located in central Westchester County and easily accessible from the Taconic State and Saw Mill Parkways.

The office is on the second floor and the entrance is in the front of the building.

How does couples therapy work?2021-06-21T14:45:14+00:00

It starts off with a free interview during which I will explain the process of couples work.  Initially, I work with each person individually for several months eventually working up to doing couples sessions. From there, individual and couples session will occur as needed. A successful model has been where both partners continue with individual sessions and meet once or twice a month for couples.

Is therapy confidential?2021-06-26T03:12:33+00:00

Yes. Confidentiality between a client and a therapist is one of the most important aspects of therapy.  The law protects the confidentiality of all communications between a client and a mental health provider.  However, there are some exceptions required by law to this rule.  Exceptions include:

  • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. The therapist is required to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person.  The therapist is required to notify the police and the person being threatened.
  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself the therapist will make every effort to work with the individual to ensure their safety. However, if an individual does not cooperate, additional measures may need to be taken.
