When Worry Works How to Harness Your Parenting Stress and Guide Your Teen to Success

“Revelatory. An exploration of parents’ often damaging preoccupation with academic achievement, while providing gentle and constructive guidance on how to overcome it.”

The Jewish Chronicle

When Worry Works: How to Harness Your Parenting Stress and Guide Your Teen to Success

Available now in hardback and e-book. When Worry Works helps parents manage the stresses and pressures of achievement culture and empowers them to make decisions that align with their values—not their anxiety.

“Grab this book and tame your anxiety.”

Tovah Klein

My Credo

Let’s achieve success—whatever it may look like—aligned with our values, not without.

As a New York City-based psychotherapist with three decades of experience and research, I guide adolescents and adults to express their authentic selves, improve their relationships, and pursue values-driven success.

Whether you’re a student exhausted by school pressures, an overwhelmed parent, or a professional drained by a 60-hour work week, I can help. I’m accessible virtually and in-person to patients.

If you’re interested in individual or adolescent/pre-adolescent psychotherapy, couples or relationship therapy, or parenting guidance, I would love to connect.
