Finding a therapist you feel comfortable with and trust can be difficult. Painful life experiences, past trauma and current situations can cause you to feel stuck, depressed and anxious. You may have noticed changes in your relationships, work, mood or self-esteem. Feeling understood and supported is of utmost importance when navigating life challenges. As such, I am dedicated to protecting your trust and providing you with emotional safety as you undertake the vulnerable yet enriching journey of therapy.
I focus on developing a deep understanding of your unique experience within a space of openness and non-judgment. In addition to improving and alleviating your specific symptoms, I seek to empower you through increased awareness and choice, alignment with core values and life-meaning, & better coping skills.
I specialize in working with teenagers, young adults and older adults addressing concerns related to anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues, life transitions and learning to better experience and express a full range of emotions in a healthy way.
An interesting note about me is that I am a third generation MSW. My papa, Leonard Cohen, received his MSW from the University of Pittsburgh and went on to become the Executive Director of Jewish Family and Career Services in Atlanta for many years. My amazing mother, Deborah Cohen LCSW, currently has her own private practice in the Lawrenceville, GA area.
