The goal of living is to grow optimally according to the conditions of human existence and thus to become fully what one potentially is.                               — Erich Fromm, The Art of Being


RAchel Preferred

As a psychologist, I am committed to helping you determine what you want from life — guiding you in the direction of greater clarity and toward greater satisfaction and fulfillment.

My areas of focus include:

• Anxiety
• Depression and mood disorders
• Relationships
• Trauma and PTSD
• Creativity blocks
• Career/work dissatisfaction
• Living with illness
• LGBTQ affirmative therapy
• Grief and loss

The benefits of psychotherapy are profound.  Not only can therapy help you change your present and future, it can also help you change your relationship with the past.  It can bring relief from emotional distress caused by past events and potentially transform the meaning of earlier experiences in your life.


I have offices in Manhattan, near Union Square, and in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
