I am a counselor licensed in New York and New Jersey with over 24 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm, interactive with an occasional splash of humor. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines humanistic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
I am feeling very fortunate now to have the opportunity to help many people at this point in time transcending the COVID-19 crisis. It is challenging. The problems are not necessarily so different than other times. But, the crisis has pushed people with vulnerabilities into their own mental health crisis. Polls show that over half of the country are having mental health issues due to the crisis.
Mark cares about his patients. Always available to help someone in need in a very professional manner.
I begin with just trying to make a good enagement. I try to not be presured at all. However, I will ask what beings you to me today?
My BS is from Hunter College (CUNY) in New York, NY. My MSW is from Stony Brook (SUNY). I also have attended may trainings and workshops. I also have undergone an intensive training in Rational Emotive Therapy (similar to CBT) at the Albert Ellis Institute in NYC.
I am afraid that I am not able to accept insurance at this time. One benefit of this is that no information needs to go to an insurer. It is truly private. Our sessions will last one hour and my fee is $175. This will be payable in advance and can be done by credit card, PayPal or Zelle.
