Nevertheless, I have led groups for and worked individually with people dealing with single issues, such as sexuality, grief and mourning, or drug and alcohol use.
I am a seasoned clinical social worker and psychotherapist with 30 years' experience. I offer clients a welcoming, safe environment in which to learn more about themselves and explore new ways of enhancing their relationships and functioning. Individual therapy is my primary method of treatment. My style is psychodynamically based, supportive and interactive, informed by my experience utilizing many psychotherapeutic modalities. In hospitals and in private practice I have worked with a diverse group of clients, including veterans, as they address issues related to gender, sexual identity, addiction, grief, PTSD, panic disorder, OCD, anxiety, and depression.

While I have been trained in a number of modalities and work with a diverse group of clients, some areas of particullar interest are adults, young adults, couples counseling, LGBTQ issues, drug and alcohol use and abuse, grief and mourning as well as eating disorders and body related issues.
I believe that change and healing come through relationships; our relationship with self as well as our relationships with others. It is because of this belief that I approach my work as a collaborative venture that requires large amounts of both compassion and curiosity. It is my goal to create an atmosphere where these qualities can be nurtured and to provide the individual with the support and space to reflect on old patterns of behavior and the opportunity to respond in new ways that allow for a more fully realized and authentic way of living.

My education and training took place at a number of local institutions including Columbia University Medical Center, Lenox Hill Hospital, and New York University. The majority of my work has been with adults, young adults, and adolescents who are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship problems, drug or alcohol use, or post-traumatic stress reactions. These clients have often begun working with me after having engaged in their own long-term struggles. If you are reading this page, then you may be constantly angry or guilty, sad or scared, ashamed or overwhelmed. You may be considering finally trying to reach out for help.

Issues I can help with include anxiety, stress, depression, loneliness, relationships, drug and alcohol use, anger, sexuality, healthy boundaries, codependency, self-esteem and more.
There has never been a better time to take a focused look at our lives: what is working, what is missing, where you are now and where you want to be. Maybe you feel stuck. Maybe you feel broken. Your history does not have to define your destiny. The power of connection in therapy can heal. Using a psychodynamic approach through an attachment lens, we’ll take a look at your life experience without dwelling in the past. We can identify behavior that may not be serving you now. During this therapeutic process, you will be able to embrace your humanity, heal the hurt and learn that, in fact, there is nothing wrong with you.

You wake up with a feeling of dread and urgency, or suffer through sleepless nights. Time is ticking away. You feel an urge to do, a lack of clarity about what. You've talked to friends, looked up cures on the internet, but nothing works. These things happen in life, and often they have nothing to do with having a disorder. You are probably exactly where you need to be to move on to the next part of your life. Perhaps therapy can give you space to discover how.

I am committed to creating an atmosphere of trust, respect, and honesty. I listen attentively and believe that the relationship that we create together is the most important tool for our work together. My orientation is also psychodynamic, which means that I believe in the central role of the unconscious, past history and emotional forces. I apply this approach to many kinds of issues (depression, anxiety, addiction, difficulty in interpersonal relationships, general sense of dissatisfaction with life). My goal is to help you develop the awareness, insight, and psychological skills that you will be able to use later on your own.
