I'm Esther, a trauma, anxiety and relationship therapist in Long Island, NY.

I get that you're frustrated. 

You're overwhelmed and worried that you're not doing something right.

Tired of trying to figure it all out, you're left feeling confused, exhausted, disconnected and burnt out.

You know life is meant to be better than this.  

You can improve your relationships, release your anxiety, loosen the stronghold of your past, and really start to feel better.

I'm prepared to help you heal so that you can step into your life with confidence and ease. 

I help clients get unstuck, and live a life of meaning, joy and purpose.

We'll help you release your mental and emotional clutter so you can access the inner wisdom. Blending my clinical knowledge with gentle compassion, we use focused approaches to get you to feeling stronger and living the life you want. Over the years I've learned that my skill set is most effective in working with adults who struggle with anxiety, relationship difficulties and survivors of  trauma.  I also enjoy working with individuals navigating the exciting and terrifying stages of adulthood and parenthood. To see if these areas fit your needs, click here to find out more. 

Therapy is about you. Our time together will be structured around what you feel is most important to address your needs.

Together we will formulate a plan to get you feeling better.  My therapeutic work, based on years of clinical practice, blended with my gentle humor has helped clients feel comfortable to begin the work with comfort and ease. Learn more about what to expect in therapy click here.

As a psychotherapist, I believe in a holistic approach, healing the whole person, in mind, body and spirit.

In therapy, I utilize EMDR, Somatic (mind-body) psychotherapy, mindfulness, creative arts and relational approaches to promote long lasting, integrative healing.  If you'd like more information about my clinical training, click here. 

I anchor my work in an unshakable belief in the human capacity to heal as I’ve seen clients transcend limitations and begin living the life they didn’t imagine possible.
