Hello. My name is Jackson and I am a Boston Terrier who will greet you at the door. Howard thinks of me as his co-therapist but hey, I'm only a dog. After 30 seconds I promise to go to my bed and let the two of you do your work. I don't shed and I am really a fun lil guy to have around. Of course, if you want me to join you on the sofa (as pictured) I can assure you that "snuggle therapy" can be arranged at no additional charge :)
I am a compassionate and caring psychotherapist who will respect your feelings while working through areas of concern for your well-being. My style of working is dynamic, yet supportive. Through a mutual dialogue we can explore all areas of concern leading to a rich and meaningful therapeutic experience.

I have a well appointed office in the West 70's near Central Park. The environment is both comforting and relaxing; a special place to explore all issues which need attention. Internet and Phone sessions are always available when needed.
My fees are reasonable and I offer a sliding scale for those in need. Hours are flexible: Mondays thru Fridays, (mornings thru evenings). Contact me today for a FREE consultation, because "everyone needs someone to talk to."
Sometimes it feels like you'll never get home.
