As a Certified Cat Behaviorist, I Can Help
With Many Behavior Problems Including:

  • Aggression:

  • Cat-to-Cat Introductions
  • Litter Box Issues

    cat-to-human, cat-to-environment
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Bereavement and Loss Counseling


I believe in a compassionate, educational and non-judgmental approach to cat behavior, in which every cat and human is respected as an individual. I offer personalized, private, and affordable consultations in one-hour video calls or in-person (email me about scheduling an in-person visit within the five boroughs of NYC)

Booking is easy. Just click the button below to schedule an appointment on my scheduling app. Click on your desired day and time, and answer a few basic questions. At the end, you’ll be prompted for a credit card payment. A Zoom or Google Meet link (your choice) will immediately follow by email.

Consultations Include:
• Pre-session guidance
• One-hour call by video or in person
• Written report and behavior plan
• 60 days of unlimited post-session email support

Cost: $150 / One-Hour Session

Some behaviors may have a medical cause and should be investigated by a veterinarian first. It is always best practice to have a vet see your cat before a consultation.
