The approach I employ towards helping is informed by the view that psychoanalytic principles are radical in their nature, because part of the outcome aims at increasing one’s freedom from whatever constraining forces lead a person to embark on a therapeutic project. This is accomplished through a particular kind of listening to the patient's words and exploring the person’s history to locate previously unknown wishes one may then follow. Out of this can extend a life more creatively aligned with your singular vision.
Notwithstanding that every human has a uniqueness of their own, a few of the issues that can be explored in therapy are loss and grief, anxieties, interpersonal struggles, sexuality and gender, trauma, and self-defeating problems. My experience includes working with adults, adolescents, and couples (particularly those who identify as gay/queer).
I am a New York State licensed clinical social worker with an MSW from Hunter College of the City University of New York. Before joining Rose Hill, I worked and trained at community outpatient clinics and a college counseling center.
